    Notes: The kinetics of crystallization of cassava starch during aging were studied at different temperatures using the expression θ= exp(-ktn), where θ is the fraction of uncrystallized material remaining after time t. The values for the rate constant (k) indicated that the firming process for the cassava starch gels was characterized by a negative temperature coefficient. The Avrami exponent (n) was found to be unity over the range of temperatures studied (2-30° C), suggesting that the mechanism of starch crystallizatión is instantaneous nucleation followed by rod-like growth of ciystals.

    Notes: Abstract. An unusually large and old ameloblastoma, which revealed a diverse histological appearance, was studied by light and electron microscopy. In the tumor, the epithelial component formed several patterns in the collagenous stroma. The epithelial islands, consisting of tall columnar cells surrounding the inner core of stellate cells, mimicked the cells of the inner enamel epithelium and stellate reticulum, respectively, of the normal enamel organ. The ultrastructural appearances of the columnar cells, however, were only similar to those which are seen in undifferentiated preameloblasts. Areas of squamous metaplasia were present, and these squamous cells were structurally similar to the cells al the base of the oral epithelium. Some epithelial cells containing numerous lipid granules and mitochondria formed a network of cords. The connective tissue stroma was made up of fibroblast-like cells which appear to be metabolically active. In addition, multinucleated giant cells were present in the connective tissue stroma near the epithelial component.

    Description: BACKGROUND: Noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT) uses cell-free DNA (cfDNA) as an analyte to detect copy-number alterations in the fetal genome. Because maternal and fetal cfDNA contributions are comingled, changes in the maternal genome can manifest as abnormal NIPT results. Circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) present in cases of maternal neoplasia has the potential to distort the NIPT readout to a degree that prevents interpretation, resulting in a nonreportable test result for fetal aneuploidy. METHODS: NIPT cases that showed a distortion from normal euploid genomic representation were communicated to the caregiving physician as nonreportable for fetal aneuploidy. Follow-up information was subsequently collected for these cases. More than 450000 pregnant patients who submitted samples for clinical laboratory testing 〉3 years are summarized. Additionally, in-depth analysis was performed for 〉79000 research-consented samples. RESULTS: In total, 55 nonreportable NIPT cases with altered genomic profiles were cataloged. Of these, 43 had additional information available to enable follow-up. A maternal neoplasm was confirmed in 40 of these cases: 18 malignant, 20 benign uterine fibroids, and 2 with radiological confirmation but without pathological classification. CONCLUSIONS: In a population of pregnant women who submitted a blood sample for cfDNA testing, an abnormal genomic profile not consistent with fetal abnormalities was detected in about 10 out of 100000 cases. A subset of these observations (18 of 43; 41.9%) was attributed to maternal malignant neoplasms. These observational results suggest the need for a controlled trial to evaluate the potential of using cfDNA as an early biomarker of cancer.
