Spandidos Publications was founded in 1992 and has developed into a leading publishing group in the biomedical sciences field. We currently publish twelve journals: International Journal of Molecular Medicine, International Journal of Oncology, Molecular Medicine Reports, Oncology Reports, Experimental and Therapeutic Medicine, Oncology Letters, Biomedical Reports, Molecular and Clinical Oncology, World Academy of Sciences Journal, International Journal of Functional Nutrition, Medicine International and International Journal of Epigenetics.
When deciding which journal to submit your paper, you should consider who would be interested in your results. A small number of scientists working in your special field only, or would it be of interest to others working in complementary or parallel fields. Next, evaluate the level of significance of your findings. In this process your colleagues will be of great help, as very few of us are critical enough of our own work. Over-estimation, might cost you many months of frustration and uncertainty. Consider carefully whether there is a need to submit to a so-called prestigious journal, where the disappointment is very likely. Any established journal will forward the Abstracts of all published works to various databases, thus yours will have equal opportunity to be noticed, regardless of the journal in which it is printed. It is of interest to study how long the time period is from publishing to finding the entry in, for example Medline or Science Citation Index; as these are the ‘advertising windows’ frequently used in search of new information. This leads us to the next very important point to establish how long the review and publications process is likely to be. Previous issues will indicate the trend, and this is of major importance, as the process varies greatly from a few weeks to over one year. Thus, before submitting do some research on rapid publication, if you need a reply within a reasonable time period. A strategy for a successful publication shall be considered.

Dermatologic adverse effect to targeted and immunotherapy of cancer
Autor: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Razvigor Darlenski

The wide variety of drug-induced dermatoses requires deep knowledge in this specific field.The latest clinical researches has discovered important facts about classification, pathogenesis and therapeutic approaches in toxic skin reactions due to target treatment. Although dermatologic toxicities with systemic cancer therapies are very frequent, a minority of cancer patients visit a dermatologist during their therapy.

Usually the dermatologic toxicities include impairment of the skin, oral mucosa, hair, and nails. The most common adverse reaction is acneiform rash, which is observed in 25–85% of patients treated by epidermal growth factor receptor and mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase inhibitors. BRAF inhibitors most often lead to hyperkeratotic skin reactions like hand-foot skin reaction or palmoplantar keratoderma, squamous cell carcinoma, keratoacanthomas and maculopapular hypersensitivity-like rash. Immune checkpoint inhibitors most frequently induce nonspecific maculopapular rash, but also eczema-like or psoriatic lesions, lichenoid reactions, xerosis cutis, and pruritus. mTOR inhibitors very often are responsible for the oral mucosal toxicities like mucositis and stomatitis, followed by stomatitis associated with multikinase angiogenesis and HER inhibitors. Targeted therapies and endocrine therapy also commonly induce alopecia,vitiligo, bullous dermatoses etc. Finally, targeted therapies may damage nail folds, with paronychia and periungual pyogenic granuloma distinct from chemotherapy-induced lesions.

It’s important not only to understand the etiopathogenesis but also to establish universal treatment guidelines, that can be used by dermatologists, oncologists, radiologists, dental specialists etc. The multidisciplinary approach is the most important way to achieve higher quality of life in those patients.

Phlebology: what challenges does the pandemic bring?
Author: Stanislava Tzaneva

The COVID-19 pandemic has not only far-reaching effects on our private lives, but also on the phlebological practice worldwide.
During the many lockdowns, phlebological interventions were cancelled and postponed in many countries. This not only led to poorer medical care for these patients, but also to psychological consequences. Especially patients with chronic leg ulcers, who are already a vulnerable group due to age, chronic pain, underlying diseases and restricted mobility, suffered from treatment delays and suboptimal therapy.
As phlebologist we are confronted with new entities such as inflammatory deep vein thrombosis and the vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT). Approximately a third of seriously ill COVID-19 patients develop venous thromboembolism. On the other hand, it is not yet clear how many of the COVID-19-ill outpatients will develop venous thromboembolism.
Due to the widespread use of home office and restrictions due to lockdown and quarantine, there is a reduction in people’s physical activity. As a result, we see a deterioration in many chronic venous and lymphatic diseases due to reduction in muscle and joint pump work.
In summary, phlebology is gaining in importance by increasing the prevalence of venous diseases, deterioration of chronic conditions and new entities during pandemic.

French “Choosing Wisely” Occlusive treatment of saphenous veins and recurrences
Author: Luc Moraglia

Between 2013 and 2016 the HAS (French Health Authority) validated successively the ablation of the great saphenous vein (GSV) by radio frequency (RFA), the possibility of using some sclerosing agent in the form of foam, and the ablation of the GSV and SSV by endovenous Laser (EVLA).
But in the end it declares itself unable to rank these techniques.
Between 2014 and 2019 the French National Health Insurance Fund (CNAM) validated the reimbursement of thermal ablation (TA) and also of 3 new procedures for Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy (USGFS) of GSV, SSV, and complex recurrent varicose veins.
But, the CNAM fears a slippage in health expenses and has asked the National Professional Council of Vascular Medicine for guidelines. The French Society of Phlebology (SFP) and the French Society of Vascular Medicine (SFMV) are requested to do the job. In the meantime the Ministry of Health has insisted on the relevance of care, so the concept of “Choosing Wisely” (CW) seemed more in line with this policy.
The CWs provide both the physician and the patient with key elements to make an appropriate decision that is accepted by the patient.
So 2 writers C. Hamel-Desnos and G. Miserey and 29 reviewers (all Vascular Doctors) have been designated to develop these CWs for chemical or thermal occlusion treatments under the aegis of the National (French) Professional Council of Vascular Medicine (CNPMV), among these 10 CWs that we will present here, most are obvious and some are typically adapted to the French context.
Conclusion: These 10 “relevant choices” represent a consensus of French experts, based on international literature and were developed under the aegis of the National (French) Professional Council of Vascular Medicine; they have been accepted by the CNAM and have been under evaluation in our daily practice for a few months. These are not recommendations but the SFP, the SFMV and the SNMV (Union) are doing their utmost to get the message across to French vascular medicine specialists.

French technique
Author: Luc Moraglia

Luc Moraglia MD – Vice president of SFP

Objective: To describe the guidelines of the French technique of chemical ablation of the great saphenous vein (GSV).
Method: a brief history will identify the reality of the concept of French method, and then will be reminded of the technique, the results through some French studies and the side effects that are actually not specific. We conclude with limitations and medium-term prospects.
Results: whether in the development of sclerotherapy, in particular by contribution from school Raymond Tournay, for the introduction of ultrasound guidance, the use of sclerosing foam, making the extemporaneous foam , the validation of the effectiveness of ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy by randomized controlled trials and evaluation and understanding of complications in studies dedicated , French phlebologists played a essential role which led to the concept of French method which got through the recent European guidelines ( recommendation 19) the status of recommended method (grade 1C) in the chemical ablation of the GSV .
Discussion : limits , besides the contraindications, are mainly located at the caliber of the vein to be treated . In France this limit will remain blurred as we will only have one foaming sclerosing agent and the thermal ablation techniques will still not be refunded. It is not unreasonable in this situation to put this limit high enough, around 8 to 10 mm. Refund of the thermal ablation should reduce this limit below 6 mm , pending the emergence and validation of new techniques.
Conclusion : The concept of French technique of chemical ablation of the GSV (such as the small saphenous vein elsewhere) , result of the works of the French school of Phlebology within the SFP is a fact reinforced by the European recommendations, and certainly still have nice future ahead of it .

Pediatric melanoma: a systematic review and individual patient meta-analysis
Author: Riccardo Pampena

The clinical and dermoscopic features of the vast majority of uncommon variants of cutaneous melanoma have been rarely reported, leading to difficulty in making accurate diagnoses.
We conducted A 2-step systematic review of the literature was performed (from inception to November 2018) using PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials databases. The first step identified those uncommon variants of melanoma for which at least 1 case reporting dermoscopy was described in the literature. In the second step, each previously identified uncommon variant was searched for in the same databases.
In total, 62 articles met the inclusion criteria, reporting 433 melanoma cases. An additional 56 cases of uncommon melanoma variants were retrieved from the institution’s database for a total of 489 cases: 283 cases of amelanotic superficial spreading melanoma, 18 cases of animal-type and pigmented epithelioid melanocytoma, 7 cases of balloon cell melanoma, 71 cases of desmoplastic melanoma, 3 cases of follicular melanoma, 10 cases of nested melanoma, 33 cases of nevoid melanoma, 2 cases of primary dermal melanoma, 57 cases of spitzoid melanoma, and 5 cases of verrucous melanoma. Clinically, these tumors were mainly palpable or amelanotic lesions that could resemble other benign or malignant skin conditions; dermoscopy typically revealed a homogeneous pinkish background, white structures, and polymorphic vessels. Uncommon melanoma variants may resemble both inflammatory disorders and other cutaneous neoplasms, representing a diagnostic pitfall even for the most experienced dermatologist.
