A 51-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital for an intermit tent syncope. No abnormal findings on physical examination. Lab oratory results showed B-type brain natriuretic peptide of 1044.0 pg/ml (reference range, < 100), D-Dimer of 5.69 mg/L (reference range, < 0.5), FDP of 19.0 ug/ml (reference range, < 5), and blood NT-proBNP of 2580.0 pg/ml (reference range, < 125). Electrocar diogram demonstrated sinus rhythm, left axis deviation, and ab normal T-wave.

Multiple-scale Computational Studies of Redox-controlled Supramolecular Co-assembly Nanoplatform: Toward Immunochemotherapy-driven Antitumor Augment
Programmed cell death protein 1 (PD1)/programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1) blockades provide an effective and safe therapeutic option in the field of refractory cancer therapy. However, not more than 30% response rate of most cancers seriously impedes their therapeutic efficacy.
