This report warns that reluctance to talk honestly about death is preventing people with cancer from dying'well'. It calls for Governments across the UK to honour their commitments to ensuring Advance Care Planning is used as an important part of a person-centred health service, so that people approaching the end of their lives receive the best care possible and their wishes for death and dying are fulfilled

The prognostic value of high sensitivity C-reactive protein in a multi-ethnic population after>10 years of follow-up: The Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA). Int J Cardiol. 2018 Aug 01;264:158-164 Authors: Cainzos-Achirica M, Miedema MD, McEvoy JW, Cushman M, Dardari Z, Greenland P, Nasir K, Budoff MJ, Al-Mallah MH, Yeboah J, Blumenthal RS, Comin-Colet J, Blaha MJ Abstract BACKGROUND: The prognostic value of hsCRP in contemporary multi-ethnic populations is unclear, particularly in statin users. The aim of this study was to characterize the prognostic utility of hsCRP for atheroscleroti...

Abstract The molecular pathogenesis and classification of colorectal carcinoma are based on the traditional adenomaecarcinoma sequence, serrated polyp pathway, and microsatellite instability (MSI). The genetic basis for hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer is the detection of mutations in the MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, PMS2, and EPCAM genes. Genetic testing for Lynch syndrome includes MSI testing, methylator phenotype testing, BRAF mutation testing, and molecular testing for germline mutations in MMR genes. Molecular makers with predictive and prognostic implications include quantitative multigene reverse transcriptas...

Abstract MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are poised to provide diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic targets for several diseases including malignancies for precision medicine applications. The miRNAs have immense potential in the clinical arena because they can be detected in the blood, serum, tissues (fresh and formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded), and fine-needle aspirate specimens. The most attractive feature of miRNA-based therapy is that a single miRNA could be useful for targeting multiple genes that are deregulated in cancers, which can be further investigated through systems biology and network analysis that may provid...

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 Many people use medicines like paracetamol or ibuprofen for aches and pains. There's no suggestion from this study that occasional use to manage a headache or muscle strain is harmful. But the study is a reminder that regular use – defined by the researchers as two days or more a week – could have health consequences over time. However, this study has some limitations. As a cohort study, it can't prove cause and effect between paracetamol and NSAIDs and hearing loss. And it mainly included white women, all in the US, so we don't know if the results apply to other groups. Also, the increased risk ...

Authors: Monzani D, Genovese E, Pini LA, DI Berardino F, Alicandri Ciufelli M, Galeazzi GM, Presutti L Abstract As L-type voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) control Ca(2+) influx and depolarisation of cardiac and vascular smooth muscle, they represent a specific therapeutic target for calcium channel blockers (CCBs), which are approved and widely used to treat hypertension, myocardial ischaemia and arrhythmias. L-type currents also play a role in calcium entry in the sensory cells of the inner ear. In hair cells of both cochlea and labyrinth, calcium cytoplasmic influx is the first physiological process that ac...
