These Photos Prove There's No Shame In Women Having Facial Hair

An Australian fitness blogger with polycystic ovary syndrome is getting the word out about the reality of living with the disorder in viral photos showing her shaving her face. “As well as depression, anxiety, infertility, weight gain, hormonal imbalances, bloating, abdominal pains, acne, cysts, increased risk of cancer and everything else, a lot of woman including myself have to deal with facial hair!” wrote Tina Marie Beznec in a message fellow Australian blogger Constance Hall shared this month. “Do you know how UNFEMININE this can make a woman feel?!?” she wrote. “I’ve always been super self conscious about it, but really just have to put this out there because I want create more awareness around this syndrome and how much it can impact someone’s life especially if they don’t know they have it.” Experts estimate that PCOS, a hormone disorder that gets its name because it causes small cysts on the ovaries, affects between one in 10 and one in 20 women of childbearing age. Besides the cysts, PCOS can lead to a wide range of symptoms, including irregular periods, acne, infertility, excess facial and body hair. It also increases a woman’s risk of obesity and diabetes. Beznec runs the Facebook page Fight Against Fat, where she shares health and fitness tips and documents her experiences living with PCOS. Her message is clear: Don’t judge someone’s personal appearance — especi...

CONCLUSIONS: High SOD2 expression can be predictive of a poor clinical outcome and be clinically useful in the follow-up of metastatic RCC. Therapeutics for metastatic RCCs require further improvement, such as supplementary administration of agents targeting mitochondrial SOD2. PMID: 29914010 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Zhou J, Ge Y, Hu Y, Rong D, Fu K, Wang H, Cao H, Tang W Abstract Circular RNAs (circRNAs), which were recently discovered as a special class of endogenous non-coding RNAs, have recently shown huge capabilities as gene regulators in different species in a wide variety of organisms including viruses, plants, archaea and animals. These circRNAs mainly arise from exons or introns in different combinations by special selective splicing and are enriched in cytoplasm. Apart from that, circRNAs usually display patterns of cell-type, tissue-type and developmental-stage specific expression in eukaryotic transcriptom...

Authors: Liu D, Wang N, Sun Y, Guo T, Zhu X, Guo J Abstract OBJECTIVE: To analysis the expression of VEGF in gastric carcinoma cell and tumor tissue, our study determined the relationship between the expression of VEGF and tumor incidence, metastasis and prognosis in human gastric carcinoma. METHODS: Treatment of ZD6474 at dose of 30 μmol/L was performed in gastric carcinoma cell BGC823. qPCR and Western-blot were used to analysis the mRNA and protein expression of VEGF. MTT, wound healing and Transwell experiments were conducted to study the effect of VEGF on tumor incidence, metastasis and prognosis. ...

This study aims to investigate the role of miR-29a in regulating STAT3, as well as in Taxol resistance of nasopharyngeal carcinoma CNE-1 cells. Dual luciferase reporter gene assay showed a regulatory relationship between miR-29a and STAT3. Rhodamine 123 repository in CNE-1 and CNE1/Taxol drug resistant cells was measured together with the expression of miR-29a, STAT3, and p-STAT3. Flow cytometry was used to measure cell apoptosis and PCNA expression under Taxol treatment. CNE-1/Taxol cells were treated with miR-29a mimic and or si-STAT3, followed by measuring the expression of miR-29a, STAT3, and p-STAT3 and cell apoptosis...

Authors: Wang S, Cui S, Zhao W, Qian Z, Liu H, Chen Y, Lv F, Ding HG Abstract BACKGROUND: Circular RNAs (circRNAs) play an important role in pathogenesis and development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, circRNA expression profiles in hepatitis B Virus (HBV)-related HCC remain to be studied. METHODS: Total 13 HBV-related HCC patients were enrolled for study. Three HCC and 3 paired adjacent non-tumorous (NT) tissues from 3 patients were performed for microarray. Ten pairs of HCC tissues were used to verify the identified up-regulated and down-regulated circRNAs obtained from the microarr...

Our study was aimed at the comparative assessment of three different therapies over a three-month period, applied to women with moderate comedogenic and papulo-pustular endocrine acne. In the study 116 female patients with endocrine localized face acne were included and divided into three groups: group I with 42 patients was treated with a combination of contraceptive pill + local t...
