Physical and social characteristics and support needs of adult female childhood cancer survivors who underwent hormone replacement therapy

AbstractBackgroundFemale childhood cancer survivors who develop gonadal dysfunction require female hormone replacement therapy (HRT) from puberty until menopause. However, the support provided in such cases has not been studied. We investigated the physical and social characteristics and support needs of adult female childhood cancer survivors who underwent HRT.MethodsForty-nine adult female childhood cancer survivors completed self-administered questionnaires. We compared the clinical characteristics, health status, and social conditions between a group that underwent HRT and a group that did not, and we surveyed support needs of the group that underwent HRT.ResultsThe median age of the subjects was 25.0  years (range 20−41). Twenty subjects (40.8%) underwent HRT. A significantly high number of those who underwent HRT also underwent radiation therapy (p

This study aimed to determine the cytotoxic, genotoxic and to elucidate the signaling pathway involved in the death cell process induced by cis-[RuCl(BzCN)(bipy)(dppb)]PF6(1) and cis-[RuCl(BzCN)(bipy)(dppe)]PF6(2) in Ehrlich ascites carcinoma (EAC) in vitro. Moreover, we report for the first time the anti-angiogenic potential on chick embryo chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) model. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) were isolated from healthy controls with an age range of 20-30 years and used to calculate the selectivity index (SI). The complex 2 (IC50 = 8.5 ± 0.4/SI = 6.3) sho...

Authors: Jamy O, Sonpavde G Abstract INTRODUCTION: The treatment of urothelial carcinoma (UC) had remained unchanged for several years until the recent FDA approval of immune checkpoint inhibitors (CPIs) in the salvage setting. Novel dual CPI-CPI and CPI-chemotherapy combinations are now being investigated aggressively as first line therapy for metastatic disease. Areas Covered: We discuss the recent insights into the tumor biology of UC, which may impact the prognosis as well as assist in developing precision medicine. This is followed by an overview of existing treatment including conventional chemotherapy as wel...

Authors: Kim SY, Kwon WA, Shin SP, Seo HK, Lim SJ, Jung YS, Han HK, Jeong KC, Lee SJ Abstract In a previous report, 3-aminopropyl functionalized magnesium phyllosilicate (aminoclay) improved adenovirus transduction efficiency by shielding the negative surface charges of adenovirus particles. The present study analyzed the physicochemical characterization of the electrostatic complex of adenoviruses with aminoclay and explored whether it could be utilized for enhancing tumor suppressive activity in the bladder. As a result of aminoclay-adenovirus nanobiohybridization, its transduction was enhanced in a dose-dependen...

Patients often criticize doctors for being unemotional and distant . Because we are taught to maintain a professional barrier , we may seem to be cold and uncaring, but the reality is that doctors have a heart too - we're human after all !Ironically, sometimes it's this humanness which backfires. Thus, we will often identify with some of our patients - especially when they're of the same age group, or come from a similar background. We sometimes need to break bad news to them , and when they start crying on hearing this, we get emotionally upset as well.  We may then end up saying things to try to console the patient,...

Study Design. A systematic review and single-arm meta-analysis of clinical trials. Objective. To assess the efficacy of mesenchymal stem cells or chondrocyte in patients with discogenic low back pain. Summary of Background Data. There is no previous review evaluated the efficacy of mesenchymal stem cell or chondrocyte therapy in adults with discogenic low back pain. Methods. A comprehensive literature search was conducted on PubMed, Ovid MEDLINE, Ovid EMBASE, EBSCO, and Web of Science from database inception through on September 10th, 2015. We included clinical trials that evaluated stem cells or chondrocyte-bas...
