Here, we demonstrate, for the first time to our knowledge, dose and laser intensity dependent PTT potential of small, spherical, 3-aminopropyltrimethoxysilane coated cationic superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (APTMS@SPIONs) in aqueous solutions upon irradiation at 795 nm. Indocyanine gr...

Abstract An accurate profiling of the genomic landscape is mandatory to establish the best clinical and therapeutic approach for patients with solid malignancies. Moreover, tumor cells constantly adapt to external pressures-i.e., systemic treatment-with the selection and expansion of resistant subclones and the emergence of heterogeneous overlapping genomic alterations of resistance. The current standard for molecular characterization in cancer is the performance of a tissue tumor biopsy at the time of diagnosis and, when possible, a re-biopsy at the time of progression. However, tissue biopsy is not always feasib...

te; A Abstract Colorectal cancer is one of the leading cause of death by cancer worldwide in both men and women. Liquid biopsy belongs nowadays to the landscape of cancer management biological tools. In this chapter, we will describe and discuss the actual, potential and future applications of cfDNA analysis in plasma of patients with colorectal cancer in early or metastatic stage. During the last decade, the development of molecular biology assays like digital PCR or next-generation sequencing made the analysis of cfDNA in plasma possible with an excellent sensitivity and applications like early detection, d...

Abstract The classification of human cancers has traditionally relied on the tissue of origin, the histologic appearance and anatomical extent of disease, otherwise referred to as grade and stage. However, this system fails to explain the highly variable clinical behaviour seen for any one cancer. Molecular characterization through techniques such as next-generation sequencing (NGS) has led to an appreciation of the extreme genetic heterogeneity that underlies most human cancers. Because of the difficulties associated with fresh tissue biopsy, interest has increased in using circulating tumour material, such as ci...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of gross tumor morphology on clinicopathological profile of CRCs in Kashmiri population.MethodsThis 5-year study is a prospective (2 yrs) and retrospective (3 yrs) study conducted from 2011 to 2016 in the Colorectal Surgery Division at Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS), Srinagar, Kashmir, India. Parameters studied were age, sex, site of lesion, clinical presentations, gross tumor morphology, and histopathology of the lesion.ResultsA total of 930 patients with CRC were included. Infiltrative variety was the most common morphology in patients aged 1...

This study investigated PA levels during and between chemotherapy cycles.MethodsWe objectively measured PA levels for 2  weeks during the 2nd and 11th chemotherapy cycles. In addition, self-reported PA levels were assessed before chemotherapy initiation, during 2nd, 6th, and 12th chemotherapy cycles. This study included 22 men and 33 women with stage II–III colon cancer patients (57 ± 9 years).ResultsBefore the initiation of chemotherapy, most cancer patients were minimally active. Compared with the 1st week of chemotherapy, moderate- and light-intensity PA levels significantly increase...
