medical illustration of Viral infections remain a major complication after HSCT. Patient shown receiving an IV treatment of single valent VST with antigen-specific T cells. T cells activated by exposure to adenovirus (shown ghosted over image).
medical illustration of Mechanism of action of Duvelisib (Copiktra); oral delta and gamma PI3K inhibitor. This dual isoform blockage inhibits cell signaling within malignant B cells and between malignant cells and the tumor microenvironment (TME). Blocking PI3K delta pathways from activated BCR, cytokine, and CD40 receptors affects the growth and survival of malignant B cells.
medical illustration of Deleterious mutations in the BCRA1 and BCRA2 genes are the most common cause of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. Illustration shows dramatization of extraction of DNA from a blood test. Chromosomes 17 and 13 show the location of BCRA mutations leading to double DNA breaks.

medical illustration of Anterior view of fetus in utero showing basic anatomy of the lower great vessels with emphasis on the bifurcation of the aorta and the femoral veins. There is further compression of the iliac veins by the gravid uterus and the location of the right iliac artery over the left iliac vein. Hormonally mediated vein dilation is also shown. 78 to 90% of Venous Thromboembolisms occur in the left ilio-femoral vein.
medical illustration of Glasdegib is a Hedgehog signaling pathway inhibitor used to treat chemotherapy resistant AML (acute myeloid leukemia). Glasdegib molecule attaches to the Smoothened transmembrane protein and inactivates the Hedgehog signaling pathway. Glasdegib sensitives cells and reduces chemotherapy resistance.
medical illustration of Cross section of the oropharynx of a sleeping woman exhibiting obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA involves repetitive partial or complete pharyngeal collapse while sleeping resulting in either apnea or hypopnea. In the section we can see the soft palette and the posterior portion of the tongue occluding the airway (indicated with blue).

medical illustration of Cardiotoxicity resulting in decreased ventricular function. AP view of heart with left ventricular dysfunction and Qtc prolongation.
medical illustration of Midsagittal view of the brain showing a close up of the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus controls the circadian rhythms that guide the body’s natural sleeping and waking cycles. Highlighted are the suprachiasmatic nucleus (in yellow) which sets basic circadian rhythms, the pre optic are (in lavender)  which controls slow wake sleep, and the posterior hypothalamic nucleus (in blue) which promotes wakefulness. Overlaying ECG patterns show a waking state, deep sleep and REM sleep.
medical illustration of Figurative study of patient after latissimus dorsi flap reconstruction for breast cancer.
medical illustration of Lateral view of facial muscles showing six common branching patterns of facial nerve
medical illustration of Intraoperative view of salpingectomy
medical illustration of Development of chronic pain and intractable cancer pain appears to be related to the activation of the NMDA receptors in certain areas of the central nervous system, especially the limbic system.
medical illustration of Illustration of generalized pain showing the back of a patient. Posterior view of cerebellum, spinal cord, and brachial plexus.
medical illustration of Illustration showing prostate cancer to accompany article about androgen deprivation therapy
medical illustration of Illustration of a case study of HHV-6 Encephalitis in patient with Adult hematopoietic stem cell transplant. Shown is the virus that causes encephalitis.
medical illustration of Mid-saggittal section through lumbar spine showing deletorious effects of multiple myeloma. Patient shown presenting with back pain.
medical illustration of Midsaggital view of the brain showing the Trigeminovascular pathway that is activated by an abrupt drop in estrogen.
medical illustration of Sequential illustration showing descent of fetal head through Levator Ani muscle and consequent stretch of muscle to accommodate delivery of baby.
medical illustration of Artistic interpretation of complete molar pregnancy. Overlay showing fertilization of egg containing no nuclear material resulting in trophoblastic proliferation (cytotrophoblast and syncytiotrophoblast)
medical illustration of Montage of images related to Lynch syndrome including endometrial cancer, a family pedigree for an autosomal dominant syndrome and a segment of dna showing high microsatellite instability.
medical illustration of ECV (external Cephalic Version) in use to try and avoid Cesarean section on a mother with a fetus in complete breech presentation. The baby is lifted out of the pelvic cavity and rotated head down.
medical illustration of Acupuncture needle positions for treatment of various sinus related issues.
medical illustration of Illustration for article about the diagnosis and management of abnormal placentation. Shown is disrupted decidua basalis layer with ingrowth into the decidua and myometrium of the uterus. Large placental lacunae are seen on the cross section. Uterine scarring is also demonstrated near the most pervasive areas of placenta abnormality.
medical illustration of Close up view of the pupil and iris showing reflections of a computer screen and cityscape for an article on dry eye.
medical illustration of Medical illustration showing insertion of 3 mm mini trochar next to previously placed 5-12 mm versa port in umbilicus. Abdomen is insufflated and draped for pelvic surgery.
medical illustration of Editorial illustration on the current US Cesarean section epidemic and its implications. Surgeon is shown pausing  before preforming a cesarean section. Patient is shown in cross section, stalled in early phase two labor.
medical illustration of Internal Cystitis and Bladder Pain Syndrome is a common cause of chronic pelvic pain. The illustration show glomerulations, thinned and/or irregular areas of the glycosaminoglycan (GAG) layer with general irritation in the urothelium during a cystoscopy. Pelvic nerves in the surrounding tissue are inflamed.
medical illustration of Maternal obesity and high gestational weight gain may have harmful effects on fetal metabolic programming and potential harmful effects on the fetal brain. Evidence suggests increased odds of cognitive defect, increased odds of autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, and cerebral palsy. Mechanisms may be through inflammation via increased pro-inflammatory cytokines, fetal pancreatic response to glucose rich environment and multiple organs affected include fetal brain, liver, pancreas and adipose tissue.
medical illustration of Breast cancer from diagnosis to typing.
medical illustration of Illustration for article comparing various methods of inserting the first trochar to avoid injury in laparoscopic surgery

medical illustration of Illustration showing the Whipple Procedure - a pancreaticoduodenectomy. In this, the head of the pancreas, antrum of the stomach and duodenum are removed en bloc. The gall bladder is also removed. The common bile duct and tail of the pancreas are sutured to the jejunum. The stomach is redirected to empty below the pancreas and bile duct into the jejunum. Shown through the stomach is the tail of the pancreas with ghosted in main pancreatic duct, and splenic artery.
