Conclusions Triple malignancy in a single patient is exceptional. The management depend on stages. Surgery is the standard of care in localized cancers.
This study investigated the biological effects of mTOR inhibitors associated with radiotherapy in a CC cell line (HeLa). A human keratinocyte cell line (HaCaT) was used as control. Temsirolimus, everolimus, resveratrol, curcumin and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) were the mTOR inhibitors assessed. The 50% cell cytotoxicity rate (CC50) for each treatment was determined by MTT cell viability assay. Cells were pre-treated with mTOR inhibitors at CC50 followed by radiotherapy (RT) at 2Gy. Cell death profile after treatment with temsirolimus, resveratrol and curcumin was assessed with flow cytometry. Everolimus, temsirolimus, ...

Authors: Huntington H Abstract Prostatic cancer is a leading cause of mortality in Australian males and yet screening programs are accorded a low priority by the health professions.

Comparisons are made with screening programs for breast and cervical cancer, currently available to Australian women. PMID: 29134895 [PubMed]
