Cadilha, Stephan Ledderose, Jennifer Zwilling, Shunya Ohmura, David Anz, Annette Künkele, Frederick Klauschen, Thomas G. P. Grünewald & Maximilian M. L. Knott
Abstract Chimeric fusion transcription factors are oncogenic hallmarks of several devastating cancer entities including pediatric sarcomas, such as Ewing sarcoma (EwS) and alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma (ARMS). Despite their exquisite specificity, these driver oncogenes have been considered largely undruggable due to their lack of enzymatic activity. Here, we show in the EwS model that – capitalizing on neomorphic DNA-binding preferences – the addiction to the respective fusion transcription factor EWSR1-FLI1 can be leveraged to express therapeutic genes....

Jesus Pujol, Laura Blanco-Hinojo, Andrea Doreste, Fabiola Ojeda, Gerard Martínez-Vilavella, Víctor Pérez-Sola, Joan Deus & Jordi Monfort
Abstract Background Pain-sensitized osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia patients characteristically show nociceptive system augmented responsiveness as a common feature. However, sensitization can be originally related to the peripheral injury in osteoarthritis patients, whereas pain and bodily discomfort spontaneously occur in fibromyalgia with no apparent origin. We investigated the distinct functional repercussion of pain sensitization in the cerebral cortex in both conditions. Methods Thirty-one pain-sensitized knee osteoarthritis patients and 38 fibromyalgia patients were compared with matched control groups....
