Eagle Syndrome Secondary to Osteoradionecrosis of the Styloid Process.
CONCLUSION: Radiation is a common component of treatment for head and neck cancers. The diagnosis of Eagle syndrome secondary to osteoradionecrosis of the styloid process is an elusive, but important, diagnosis to consider because the condition can be treated successfully.

Conclusion: Risk factors and a more advanced clinical stage of USCC have an impact on poor outcomes despite the use of standard treatment methods, adapted for cervical cancer. The outside-pelvic failures tend to seek effective systemic treatment.Gynecol Obstet Invest
CONCLUSIONS: Studies evaluating the effects of PTD on common TBI impairments have yielded mixed results. Evidence suggests PTD precedes the development of executive dysfunction, and a strong link exists between fatigue and PTD, with fatigue preceding PTD. Future prospective studies evaluating PTD relationships to pain and headache are warranted to elucidate causality. PMID: 29355429 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Daverio M, Babl FE, Barker R, Gregori D, Da Dalt L, Bressan S, Paediatric Research in Emergency Department International Collaborative (PREDICT) group Abstract OBJECTIVES: Helmets use has proved effective in reducing head trauma (HT) severity in children riding non-motorised recreational vehicles. Scant data are available on their role in reducing concussive symptoms in children with HT while riding non-motorised recreational vehicles such as bicycles, push scooters and skateboards (BSS). We aimed to investigate whether helmet use is associated with a reduction in acute concussive symptoms in children with...
CONCLUSIONS: The factor structure of the RPQ changes over time; however, it was relatively stable from 6 to 12-months post-injury. Subject to further evaluation, assessments conducted from 6 months could consider using these two factors as subscales. Changing the factor structure of RPQ before 6 months suggests that timing of assessment should be considered in applying these factors. PMID: 29355392 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
BOSTON (CBS) – It’s a parent’s worst nightmare, hearing not only that your child has cancer but that she might also lose her eye. That’s exactly what happened to an Andover family and their 3-year-old daughter. But as Dr. Mallika Marshall reports, doctors at Boston Children’s Hospital are using a revolutionary technique to try to save her vision and her life. A little over a year ago Dania Snyder was a typical toddler until her parents noticed something unusual about her right eye. “You could see a little flash of a fleshy piece sort of through her pupil,” explains PJ, Dania’...
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - A couple on Dec. 11 filed a complaint in Tennessee federal court seeking damages against Monsanto Co., alleging that it knew that the chemical glyphosate, which is the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, could pose "significant risks to human health, including a risk of cancer" yet misrepresented it as safe (Warren Ahrent, et al. v. Monsanto Company, No. 18-65, E.D. Tenn.).
Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series Published and unpublished studies by investigators in the pharmaceutical industry indicate that a disturbingly high number of academic laboratories' reports nominating potential new cancer-drug targets are either non-reproducible or, if reproducible, are not sufficiently robust to form the basis for drug-discovery efforts. The reasons are likely multifactorial, including the ubiquitous use of " down " assays in cancer biology (e.g. decreased cell proliferation, decreased tumor growth, etc.) that incorporate chemical and genetic perturbants that are prone to cause off-target effe...

We are thrilled that our recently published article addressing the heritability of colorectal cancer (CRC) in twins1 has spurred broader discussion about screening practices in families affected by the disease. In an editorial accompanying our article, Sammader and Curtin2 elaborated on the burden of CRC among first-degree relatives of probands and cited additional evidence tha t screening may prove especially effective for individuals with a family history. Matuchansky has now further recapitulated existing literature that suggests that familial risk may be higher for siblings than for parents or children of probands.
