Implementation Science for Global Oncology: The Imperative to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Cancer Care Delivery REVIEW ARTICLES
Conclusion Implementation science is both critical and feasible in evaluating, improving, and supporting effective expansion of cancer care in resource-limited settings. In ideal circumstances, it should be a prospective program, established early in the lifecycle of a new cancer treatment program and should be an integrated and continual process.

CONCLUSION: This is the first report on the precise efficacy of anlotinib in the treatment of advanced small cell lung cancer. Anlotinib is an important option for patients with small cell lung cancer. PMID: 32031060 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
A 71-year-old man with a history of high-risk prostate adenocarcinoma (Gleason score 4 + 5 = 9) treated with brachytherapy in 2016 was referred for a 68Ga–prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)–HBED–CC PET/CT scan for suspected cancer recurrence on a background of slowly rising serum prostate-specific antigen (0.95 ng/mL; reference,
ConclusionGiven the relatively low incidence of immune ‐related AEs and the comparability of clinical outcomes, ICIs can be treatment option of NSCLC patients with special issues.
Paracentesis can be a quick and simple procedure with the right equipment and a well-rehearsed approach. It's important to practice this skill in the procedure lab and to familiarize yourself with the kit in your department a few times a year. This month, we focus on paracentesis set-up and basics, and next month we will review the nuts and bolts of completing the procedure.Important equipment for paracentesis: Five or six collection bottles, antiseptic prep, and a paracentesis kit. Consider longer needles for abdominal walls thicker than 2.5 cm.Grab the ultrasound and a pen. Position your patient at a 45-degree angle, ...
In conclusion, protein purified from strain MANF2 under mild stress of M. piperita L can certainly be implied as efficacious anti-tubercular and anticancer agents in future.

Mahizhaveni, Azger Dusthackeer, Paul Agastian, Galal Ali Esmail, Abdul-Kareem Mohammed Ghilan, Naif Abdullah Al-Dhabi, Mariadhas Valan ArasuAbstractThe present context was investigated to purify and characterize anti-tubercular as well as anticancer protein from fermented food associated Staphylococcus hominis strain MANF2. Initially, the anti-tubercular potency of strain MANF2 was assessed against Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv using luciferase reporter phase assay which revealed pronou...

ConclusionMore effective thromboprophylaxis and pre-test assessment is necessary for EOC patients. For prediction VTE events, D-dimer levels (>4.215 μg/ml) were the independent predictors before operation. Age and debulking surgery were the independent predictors post operation.
