Development of the EMAP tool facilitating existential communication between general practitioners and cancer patients.

CONCLUSION: This study resulted in a question tool that can serve as inspiration and help GPs when communicating with cancer patients about existential problems and resources. This tool may qualify GPs' assessment of existential distress, increase the patient's existential well-being and help deepen the GP-patient relationship.

This study aims to detect miR-296 expression in cervical cancer and evaluate its roles and underlying mechanisms in cervical cancer. This study demonstrated that miR-296 was significantly downregulated in cervical cancer tissues and cell lines. Restoring the expression of miR-296 inhibited the proliferation and invasion of cervical cancer cells. Moreover, miR-296 directly targeted the 3'-untranslated regions of specificity protein 1 (SP1) and decreased its endogenous expression at both mRNA and protein levels. Similar to induced miR-296 expression, SP1 knockdown suppressed the proliferation and invasion of cervical cancer ...

Authors: Liu T, Liu F, Peng LW, Chang L, Jiang YM Abstract Peritoneal macrophages (PMs) are the major cell type of peritoneal cells, which participate in multiple aspects of innate and acquired immunity in peritoneal cavity. PMs have an ability to release a large amount of pro-inflammatory and antiinflammatory cytokines, and therefore play a critical role in regulating the differentiation of innate immune cells and inflammatory T cells. Accumulating studies demonstrate that the immunological reactions and inflammatory responses of PMs are strongly related to the pathogenic processes of various inflammatory diseases...

CONCLUSION: This study shows that primary care physician screening of CRC varies widely. Those physicians who successfully screened for CRC were more likely to complete other prevention and screening practices. PMID: 29239679 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Balogun JA, Rutka JT Abstract Gliomas are the most common type of brain cancer in the pediatric patients, constituting about 50% of all childhood intracranial tumors. This is a highly heterogeneous group, varying from the benign WHO histopathological grades I and II to malignant WHO grades III and IV. The histology and location are significant prognostic factors, which influence the decision for surgical intervention, as well as the extent of possible tumor removal. In low-grade gliomas, surgery remains the initial option and should be directed at gross total resection in favorable locations, such as the c...

Authors: Wei S Abstract Great achievements have been made in human cancer research, but most of this research is focused on conditions at the microscopic rather than the systemic level. Recent studies have increasingly cited the ancient Chinese theory of yin-yang in an effort to expand beyond the microscopic level. Various cancer-associated genes and proteins such as mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), p38, p53, c-Myc, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, NF-κB, Cyclin D1, and cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) and cells such as T cells, B cells, macrophages, neutrophils, and fibroblasts have been reported to...
