Authors: Cid Gómez LA, Fernández Fernández N, Hernández Ramírez V Abstract Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer and the fourth cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. In an attempt to raise awareness on this situation, and to implement preventive measures, March 31st has been established as international colorectal cancer awareness day. Our country, with the Spanish "Alianza para la Prevención del Cáncer de Colon", pioneered in 2008 an institution that brought together scientific and civil societies to pursue this goal. A stabilizati...

Curious what the student opinion is on using PSAs. Yes I'm aware there are new and better tests out but they aren't standard of care in any way yet + are expensive. Nonetheless I've noticed residents are against using it whereas attendings largely like it. Pros: More available data, higher likelihood of catching cancer in a 50 year old patient Cons: More likely to lead to unnecessary biopsy --> complications

Authors: Kusano-Arai O, Iwanari H, Kudo S, Kikuchi C, Yui A, Akiba H, Matsusaka K, Kaneda A, Fukayama M, Tsumoto K, Hamakubo T Abstract Cadherin-17 (CDH17) is highly expressed in gastric cancer and is thus considered to be a good target for antibody therapy. CDH17 is classified as a nonclassical cadherin, in that it is composed of seven extracellular cadherin domains. We generated anti-CDH17 monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) which recognize the extracellular domain of CDH17. Competitive assay using AGS, a gastric cancer cell line, cells revealed that five selected anti-CDH17 mAbs recognize different epitopes on C...

Conclusions: An accurate diagnostic pathway helps to correctly distinguish between the possible causes of acute scrotum. However, none of the examinations performed could reliably distinguish between acute torsion and other causes of acute scrotum. Therefore, immediate surgical exploration of the testis is mandatory if torsion cannot be ruled out. PMID: 29468000 [PubMed]

SOMATOM Go.Up computed tomography (CT) x-ray system table, Model Number: 11061628 Product Usage: Intended to generate and process cross-sectional images of patients by computer reconstruction of x-ray transmission data. The images delivered by these systems can be used by a trained physician as an aid in diagnosis. These CT systems can be used for low dose lung cancer screening in high risk populations. High risk populations are as defined by professional medical societies. Please refer to clinical literature, including the results of the National Lung Screening Trial (N Engl J Med 2011; 365:395-409) and subsequent literat...

Publication date: Available online 24 February 2018 Source:Pathology - Research and Practice Author(s): Bo-Sung Kim, Jin Kuk Kim, Chang Hyun Kang, Young Tae Kim, Kyeong Cheon Jung, Jae-Kyung Won Type B3 thymoma and thymic squamous cell carcinoma (SqCC) often cause a diagnostic problem due to their histological similarities. The aim of this study is to identify EZH2 as a novel and powerful biomarker that can effectively distinguish thymic SqCC from type B3 thymoma, and find optimal combinations among 11 markers. A total of 53 patients, comprising 26 with type B3 thymoma and 27 with thymic SqCC, were allocated to the discov...
