Background: Due to the severity of the primary disease in patients with lung cancer, quality of life (QoL) is often overlooked. Factors that form QoL should be taken in consideration when planning the appropriate treatment and determining therapy targets, because of the increasing frequency of bone metastasis leading to high levels of pain. Purpose of this study is to assess quality of life in patients with lung cancer, before and after treatment combined with zoledronic acid.Methods and materials: QoL was assessed in 80 patients (49 males-31 females), of which 45 developed bone metastasis. Prior and post treatment (with c...

In this study, we investigated the role of Cry1 in regulating proliferation and migration of Hos and U2os human osteosarcoma cells by silencing Cry1 using short hairpin RNA interference. Our data from in vitro and in vivo experiments confirmed that Cry1 knockdown enhanced proliferation and migration of osteosarcoma cells. Then, Cry2, Per1, Per2, Per3, Bmal1 and Clock were found up regulated, while Dec1, Dec2, CK1ε and Npas2 were downregulated at mRNA level. Besides, Akt/P53/P21 signaling was activated after Cry1 silencing and Akt was negatively phosphorylated along with Cry1 expression, while enhanced progression o...

This study reports the results of the 2015 U.S. Army Medical Corps survey regarding physician knowledge and adherence to the tenet behaviors of P3. Methods: In 2015, an anonymous survey was sent to all active duty U.S. Army physicians to assess demographic information, work hours, and knowledge of and adherence to P3. The survey assessed the tenets of P3 with questions about the following topics: obtaining 8 h of sleep per day; performing at least 2 d of resistance training and 1 day of agility training per week; re-fueling 30-60 min after exercise; incorporating at least 150 min of moderate and 75 min of vigorous aero...

Like Billy Caldwell ’s mother, I want to try anything that might help stop my child’s seizures. At the moment, I can’tBilly Caldwell is a 12-year-old boy with severe epilepsy. Last week, British airport officials confiscated the cannabis oil his mother was using to treat his condition, because the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) it contains is illegal in the UK. He ended up in hospital after his seizures intensified. After the intervention of Billy ’s doctors, the home secretary, Sajid Javid, has allowed the return of the drug on the grounds that this situation was a “medical emergency”. Toda...

It is important for academic-minded human anesthesiologists to have an interdisciplinary perspective when engaging in cutting-edge research as well as the practice of human anesthesiology. This was a philosophy promoted by Dr. Robert Dripps, former pioneering Chairman of the Anesthesiology Department at the University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania). Many human and veterinary anesthesiologists as well as biomedical engineers and neuroscientists benefited from Dr. Dripps ’s constructive outlook personified in the quest to develop dolphin anesthesiology. The motivation to anesthetize dolphins came from the...
