Prevalence of sexual dysfunction after risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy.

CONCLUSION: The prevalence of FSD and HSDD after RRSO was 74% and 73% respectively. Relationship satisfaction, low bodily pain and use of topical vaginal estrogen were associated with a lower likelihood of sexual dysfunction. There was no correlation between serum testosterone or FAI, and sexual dysfunction. PMID: 26545955 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsIn this study, we showed TEW-7197 and ramucirumab considerably decreased invasiveness, thus EMTness in a panel of diffuse-type GC cell lines including GC PDCs. Taken together, we confirmed that combination of TEW-7197 and ramucirumab reduced tumor spheroid and GC PDC-induced blood vessel formation concomitantly in the spheroid-on-a-chip model.

Systematically mapping the mechanical properties of skin and tissue is useful for biomechanics research and disease diagnostics. For example, later stage breast cancer and lymphoma manifest themselves as hard nodes under the skin. Currently, mechanical measurements are done manually, with a sense of touch or a handheld tool. Manual measurements do not provide quantitative information and vary depending on the skill of the practitioner. Research shows that tactile sensors could be more sensitive than a hand. We propose a method that uses our previously developed skin-crawling robots to noninvasively test the mechanical prop...

 Back in February, MD+DI got the low down from an obstetrics and gynecologist specialist in Lubbock, TX on a new vaginal rejuvenation device that her patients have been raving about.  Now it seems the manufacturer of that particular device, along with other companies selling laser- or energy-based devices for vaginal rejuvenation failed to get FDA's blessing. "We've recently become aware of a growing number of manufacturers marketing 'vaginal rejuvenation' devices to women and claiming these procedures will treat conditions and symptoms related to menopause, urinary incontinence, or...

CONCLUSIONS: High rates of FSD and HSDD occur in women with breast cancer following RRSO. Low relationship satisfaction, bodily pain, bilateral mastectomy and the use of aromatase inhibitors were associated with poorer sexual function. Women had similar sexual outcomes and QoL after RRSO, regardless of breast cancer history. PMID: 27592287 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this month’s article, I explore issues relating to the health of women in emerging markets. I will recommend that pharma companies wishing to maximize the opportunity in women’s health need to start from an understanding of how women are viewed by society in these markets and challenge awareness, attitudes and access barriers that can lead to their health outcomes being sub-optimal. As a starting point, it is necessary to establish a working definition of women’s health.  This isn’t as straightforward as it might seem, as women’s health can be considered at multiple levels.  The c...
