ACS Releases Long-term Care Guideline for Breast Cancer Survivors

By Stacy Simon The American Cancer Society and the American Society of Clinical Oncology have released a new Breast Cancer Survivorship Care Guideline to help breast cancer survivors and their primary care providers better manage their long-term care. The guideline was published December 7, 2015 in CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians, a journal of the American Cancer Society. It provides detailed recommendations for how and when to test for new or returning cancers, managing side effects, making healthy lifestyle changes, and coordinating care among primary care providers and specialists. The guideline is the third in a series of cancer survivorship guidelines developed by the American Cancer Society. The first two made recommendations for survivors of prostate cancer and survivors of colorectal cancer. The Society is developing survivorship care guidelines for other cancer types as well, based on the number of survivors and the severity of health problems survivors face. An estimated 3.1 million breast cancer survivors are living today in the United States. The average age at diagnosis is 61 years; therefore it is important that long-term survivorship care is managed in coordination with health problems associated with aging. Testing for cancer The most common treatment for breast cancer is surgery, often in combination with radiation, chemotherapy, and/or targeted therapy. After treatment, the new guidelines recommend that survivors get regular follow-up tests and physical ...

Abstract Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are a group of man-made organic substances. Some of PFASs have been classified as persistent organic pollutants and endocrine disruptors. They might interfere with the male sex endocrine system, causing the abnormal development of the male reproductive tract and failure of pubertal onset and infertility. The present review discusses the development and function of two generations of Leydig cells in rodents and the effects of PFASs on Leydig cell development after their exposure in gestational and postnatal periods. We also discuss human epidemiological data for the effect...

In this study, five machine learning algorithms and twelve types of molecular fingerprints were employed to generate QSAR discriminant models for mitochondrial toxicity. A threshold moving method was adopted to resolve the imbalance issue in the training data. Consensus of the models by an averaging probability strategy improved prediction performance. The best model has correct classification rates of 81.8% and 88.3% in ten-fold cross validation and external validation, respectively. Substructures such as phenol, carboxylic acid, nitro and arylchloride were found informative through analysis of information gain and freque...

Abstract To understand the biofilm formation of biofilm-based processes in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), the interaction mechanisms between extracted extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) and three model carrier surfaces (i.e., negatively charged hydrophilic silica, positively charged hydrophilic alumina, and neutral charged hydrophobic polystyrene) were investigated employing a laboratory quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring equipment (QCM-D) and an atomic force microscope (AFM). The data suggested that surface charge and hydrophobicity of both EPS and carriers played significant role...
