Authors: Yoon SY, Lee MY, Yoon J, Kim HJ, Kim KH, Kim SH, Lee SC, Bae SB, Kim CK, Lee NS, Lee KT, Park SK, Hong DS, Won JH Abstract Background: Pancreatic cancer is among the most common malignancies associated with venous thromboembolism (VTE). Asian patients are known to have a lower incidence of VTE compared to Caucasian patients. However, few studies have investigated the incidence of VTE in Asian patients with pancreatic cancer. Methods: This retrospective review of medical records was performed on 505 patients with histopathologically proven advanced stage pancreatic cancer, from January 2006 to December ...

Conclusion: Lymphocyte subsets at diagnosis differ between patients with different specific subtypes of AML. A low proportion of NK cells is associated with adverse genetic abnormalities, whereas a high proportion is related to death before remission. However, the proportion of NK cells may not show independent correlations with survival. PMID: 30310785 [PubMed]

Authors: Raad II, Chaftari AM, Torres HA, Ayoub EM, Narouz LI, Bartek J, Hachem R Abstract Egypt has one of the highest prevalence rates of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in the world, mostly with genotype 4 that is highly associated with severe fibrosis. As a consequence, hepatocellular carcinoma has become the leading cause of cancer in this country. Mauritania is a highly endemic area for hepatitis B virus (HBV). HBV and HCV could both be iatrogenically transmitted through infected blood products, infected needles, and medical equipment improperly sterilized. Adequate and efficient healthcare and public health measures...

In this study, gold nanocomposites containing Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide (GLP-Au) efficiently induced dendritic cell (DC) activation, evident by the increase of CD80/CD86/CD40/MHCII, decrease of phagocytic ability and acid phosphatase activity, and increased cytokine transcription. GLP-Au significantly promoted the proliferation of CD4+ and CD8 + T cells in splenocytes. DC/T cell co-culture study proved that GLP-Au activation on DC directly resulted in T cell proliferation. GLP-Au exhibited strong inhibitory effects on 4T1 tumor growth and pulmonary metastasis when combined with doxorubicin. GLP-Au reco...

Abstract Human papillomavirus (HPV) is an etiological risk factor for oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinomas (OPSCC). Our study investigates the prevalence, prognostic, and clinicopathologic features of HPV-related oropharyngeal cancer in Northeast China and elucidates the involvement of p16 in the tumorigenesis and progression of OPSCC. Specimens from 1470 OPSCC patients collected from 2000 to 2016 were analyzed using the status of HPV by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and p16 immunohistochemistry. Overexpression of p16 was observed in 81 (5.51%) of the 1470 cases, and HPV positive was present in 78 cases (5.31%...

In conclusion, documentation is important, a critical part of advocacy and the development process at the larger scale. It isn't just words, but rather a vital structural flow of information from one part of the larger community to another, necessary to sustain progress in any complex field. We would all do well to remember this - and to see that building this documentation is an activity in which we can all pitch in to help.
