Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a common side effect of cancer treatment. No medication has been shown to be effective in the treatment of CIPN. Low temperature plasma (LTP) has proven to be effective tissue regeneration such as acute and chronic wound healing by stimulation of cell proliferation and migration of wound relating skin cells. Here, we investigated therapeutic effect and biological safety of LTAPP on paclitaxel-induced peripheral neuropathy.

Publication date: 1 December 2019Source: Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces, Volume 184Author(s): Maosheng Xu, Kunsong Zhang, Yubing Liu, Jie Wang, Ke Wang, Yuanqing ZhangAbstractThe treatment of cancer has always been a worldwide problem. The combination of chemotherapy and other therapies would be a promising therapy strategy. Photothermal therapy (PTT) does not cause serious side effects and has dual control of time and space, which was considered to be a good method for combination with chemotherapy. Here, we modified multifunctional nanosheets based on in-situ gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) grown molybdenum disulfide...

Authors: Xu W, Lou Y, Chen W, Kang Y Abstract Effective cancer therapy usually requires the assistance of well-designed drug carriers. In order to increase the drug accumulation to tumor tissue as well as to reduce the side effects of drug carriers, the hybrid drug delivery system (DDS) was developed by integrating folic acid (FA) and a metal-organic framework (MOF). The anticancer drug doxorubicin (DOX) was preloaded into the MOF nanoparticles during the synthesis process of the MOF nanoparticles. After surface modification with FA, the resulting FA/MOF/DOX nanoparticles were capable of serving as a biocompatible ...

We report an unprecedented case of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in the floor of mouth of a 23-year-old woman with XP. The patient was referred to the oncologist and, two months after surgical resection, underwent a single chemotherapy and radiotherapy session. However, she died 73 hours after undergoing her first chemotherapy session. Considering the unexpected outcome of this case, we also investigated possible exacerbated adverse effects of antineoplastic treatments (especially cisplatin-based chemotherapy) in XP patients, and discussed the main characteristics of the disease, especially cases with oral manifestations d...

The management of patients with “locally advanced rectal cancer” (LARC) is evolving from the original aim of reducing local recurrence. Current practice recognises the importance of surgical technique, high-quality preoperative imaging, and integration of neoadjuvant systemic chemotherapy. Contemporary protocols focus on impro ving survival and avoiding radical surgery with organ preservation strategies. Both short course preoperative radiotherapy (SCPRT) with immediate surgery and long-course chemoradiation (LCCRT) are standard neoadjuvant strategies, both demonstrating similar efficacy in preventing local rec...
