This Specific Type Of Exercise Improves Men's Fertility
If you’re a man who spends a little more time on the couch than you want to admit, and you’re planning to start trying for a baby soon, here’s some advice: Exercise could significantly improve the quality of your sperm. Specifically, moderate steady state cardio like jogging could improve your sperm’s speed, shape and volume, according to a new study published in the journal Reproduction. How different exercises affected the quality of men’s sperm A six-month study among 261 previously sedentary men in Iran found that those who were randomly assigned to start exercising on a treadmill improved the quality of their sperm in terms of volume, sperm count, motility and morphology (shape and size). All the men in the study were assigned to do either moderate intensity continuous training (running at moderate speed for 30 to 45 minutes, three to six days a week), high-intensity continuous exercise (running vigorously for one hour on the treadmill, three days a week), high intensity interval training (alternating minutes of sprints and walks for 20 to 30 minutes) or no exercise at all. All exercising groups significantly decreased their weight, body fat percentage and waist circumference. But men who had been assigned to do moderate intensity continuous training managed to improve their sperm quality the most, and also enjoyed the exercise’s effects longest. “Our results show that doing exercise can be a si...
TYPE 2 diabetes sufferers are advised to eat healthily in order to control the condition, but everyone deserves a treat every now and then. Burgers are generally considered an unhealthy food, but if you have diabetes and love a burger, this is the type you should opt for.
Toxicities associated with the systemic chemotherapy is a major concern in the treatment of colorectal metastases. The aim of this study was to evaluate a liposome nanoparticle that locally delivers oxaliplatin under alternating magnetic field (AMF) stimulus in a rat model of colorectal liver metastases (CRLM).
Locoregional therapy lacks the ability to treat systemic disease. Systemic chemotherapy or immunotherapy has significant systemic side effects. Here, we present a proof-of-concept of intra-arterial immunotherapy using saponins (a vaccine adjuvant) in a pig tumor model.
Many patients with mucinous peritoneal tumours achieve long-term recurrence free and overall survival from cytoreductive surgery and intraperitoneal chemotherapy, however recurrence is frequently seen. Repeat surgical interventions have a negative impact on quality of life, risks may outweigh any potential benefits and repeated admissions have a considerable impact on healthcare systems. The deconditioned patient is eventually deemed inoperable with no treatment option for their disease. In an attempt to modify these outcomes, we discovered remarkable synergy in extensive preclinical studies between Bromelain (Br) and Acetylcysteine (NAC).
To assess the feasibility of selective delivery of chemotherapy in lung using a double balloon occlusion catheter in subsegmental pulmonary arteries (PA) to increase tissue drug concentrations relative to intravenous (IV) administration.
Pancreas cancer is a devastating form of cancer and shows extreme resistance to chemotherapy. Combined therapies such as chemohyperthermia can enhance overall efficacy (over mono-therapies alone). The purpose of this study is to evaluate a temperature-sensitive magnetic liposomes (TSML) loaded with gemcitabine (Gem-TSML) and triggered with focused ultrasound (FUS) for the treatment of pancreatic cancer.
A recent review of transarterial chemoembolization with conventional chemotherapy (cTACE), drug-eluting beads, or yttrium-90 radioembolization (Y90) for liver metastasis of neuroendocrine tumors (NELM) suggests cTACE has the longest overall and progress-free survival. However, it fails to control the duration of disease prior to presenting for liver directed therapy (LDT). Our study aims to identify potential lead time (L-T) bias that may affect therapy choice and subsequent outcomes.
The purpose of this study was to determine the chemotherapy free interval in comparison to time-to-progression and overall survival in sarcoma patients who undergo ablation procedures.
Cervical ectopic pregnancy is rare, accounting for
Leiomyosarcomas are malignant tumors of smooth muscle origin. Response to chemotherapy is low with a median overall survival (OS)of 26.5 months when treated with olaratumab and doxorubicin (1). Surgical metastatectomy achieved 61.6 months median OS, but the majority of patients are not resectable (2). Liver metastasis is often the limiting factor for survival. The use of liver directed treatment is of clinical interest. The purpose of this study was to determine the safety and efficacy of transarterial chemoembolization (TACE), yttrium-90 (Y90) radioembolization, and percutaneous ablation in patients with unresectable meta...
