Ultrasound in evaluating ovarian reserve, is it reliable?

In conclusion there was strong relation between AMH level and AFC which makes the use of transvaginal ultrasound is a reliable alternative method to the hormonal assay to detect the ovarian reserve.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe rise of routine integration of genetic testing into oncological pathways, through initiatives such as mainstream testing, is making it increasingly important for oncologists to understand more about the wider implications of inherited mutations in cancer susceptibility genes. This is vital to facilitate accurate information-giving by oncologists, taking informed consent for testing, and to ensure they are referring patients appropriately for risk reduction strategies such as screening. In this review, the most relevant information for oncologists discussing and consenting patients will be discu...

In this study, Lactobacillus plantarum (L. plantarum) KLDS1.0318 preserved in our laboratory was orally administered to CTX-treated mice to explore its potential effects to attenuate the toxic effects of CTX-induced by modulating intestinal immune response, promoting intestinal integrity and improving metabolic profile. BALB/c mice were randomly divided into six groups including normal control group (NC; non-CTX with sterile saline), model control group (MC; CTX-treated with sterile saline), CTX-treated with L. plantarum KLDS1.0318 (10 mL/kg) groups with three different doses (KLDS1.0318-L, 5 × 107 CFU/mL; KLDS1.0318...

Conclusion: The texture analysis for breast DCE-MRI proposed in this study demonstrated potential utility in HER2 2+ status discrimination. Background Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) is an orphan tyrosine kinase receptor. It is reported that HER2 is overexpressed in 15–20% of breast cancers. Overexpression of HER2 in breast cancer correlates with shortened disease-free survival. Compared with HER2-negative patients, patients with HER2-positive breast cancers have a poor prognosis, a high probability of lymph node metastasis and a high risk of recurrence (1–3). However, previous studies h...

Kandalaft* Department of Oncology, Center for Experimental Therapeutics, Ludwig Center for Cancer Research, University of Lausanne, Lausanne, Switzerland With the advent of combined immunotherapies, personalized dendritic cell (DC)-based vaccination could integrate the current standard of care for the treatment of a large variety of tumors. Due to their proficiency at antigen presentation, DC are key coordinators of the innate...

ConclusionsLow quality evidence supports the use of GnRHa before and/or during chemotherapy to reduce the risk of POI and increase the probability of spontaneous pregnancy in the short term. Further high quality RCTs with more accurate assessment of ovarian reserve are needed to support any practical recommendation.

Breast cancer is a terrifying disease for most women. In the United States, it is the leading cause of cancer deaths among women ages twenty to fifty-nine years. More than 5,100 women are diagnosed with—and at least 1,100 women die from—breast cancer in New York City each year. The breast cancer survival rate is also lower for uninsured women than for those with private health insurance coverage. Although access to affordable breast cancer screening and treatment has grown substantially over the past few years as a result of increased health insurance coverage options through the Affordable Care Act (ACA), many...

Conclusion: This study showed neoadjuvant chemotherapy could increase the BCS success rate but could not decrease the re-excision rate. The re-excision rate is more associated with pathologic finding rather than effect of neoadjuvant chemotherapy.Citation Format: Shah PD, Digiovanni L, Maxwell KN, Bradbury AR, Van Den Akker J, Kim S, Gil E, Simon MS, Nathanson KL, Domchek SM.

In conclusion, 29 BRCA1/2 carriers have been included in the surveillance program, the median age was 42.5 months (range 27-68) and the median surveillance time was 33 months (range 0-144). Our preliminary data confirm the 3% expected rate of diagnosed cancers and the effectiveness of performing the triple diagnostic surveillance with US, XM and MRI.Citation Format: Sidoni T, Cocciolone V, Cannita K, Di Giacomo D, Ciccozzi A, Bafile A, Pizzorno L, Resta V, Marsecano C, Ferrari F, Di Cesare E, Ficorella C, Ricevuto E.
