810–1

The Editor,

Sir,

Thyroid cancers (TC) are malignant neoplasms originating from follicular or parafollicular thyroid cells, with five-year relative survival of approximately 85% in Europe. Current incidence of TC is 14.3 per 100 000 individuals in the United States of America [USA].

The Significance of Evaluating the Variation of Mechanical Microstructure for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Using Diffusion Tensor Magnetic Resonance Imaging

The Editor,

Sir,

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a genetic and familial cardiovascular disease which can cause severe arrhythmia and heart failure. With irregular hypertrophy and disorganized arrangement of cardiomyocytes on histological picture, the normal myocardium macrostructure appears in whole or part as ventricular wall thickness, especially ventricular septal thickness (1).

Closing the Gap between Preclinical Biologic Development and Clinical Application in Rheumatoid Arthritis

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.100
Pages: 
312–3
 
The Editor,
Sir,

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease; deferment and relapse of aggressive synovitis finally leads to destruction of joint cartilage and bone, and that is the main hazard of the disease. In recent years, biologic reagents have become a hot spot of RA treatment research, owing to their higher specificity and fewer side effects than existing non-biologic disease-modifying and anti-inflammatory drugs.
