ConclusionsWe did not find statistical relationship between HT and the clinical factors of age>50 years and DM. Statistical relationship for the dosimetric factors V10 > 90% and V20 > 80% was not found as well. On the contrary, obesity, epidermoid histology and ≥IIIA CS, showed statistical significance for development of HT ≥grade 2.

ConclusionsTreatment with EBRT or IB does not appear to impair sexual function in women with gynecologic cancer. Age less than 50, concurrent chemotherapy, and cervical cancer may place women with gynecologic cancer at higher risk for decreased sexual function following radiation.

ItoAbstractA new fluorene derivative, 1,1’-(9,9-dihexyl-9H-fluorene-2,7-diyl)bis (N,N-bis(pyridine-2-ylmethyl)methanamine has been successfully synthesized through condensation reaction of bis(2-pyridylmethyl)amine and 2,7-bis(bromomethyl)-9,9-dihexyl-9H-fluorene with exceptionally good yield (60%). The molecular structure of the synthesized compound was well characterized by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), infrared (FTIR), UV–vis ab...

Publication date: Available online 13 August 2018Source: Journal of Molecular StructureAuthor(s): Sunil K. Pandey, Seema Pratap, Manish K. Tiwari, Gaetano Marverti, Jerry P. JasinskiAbstractTwo new compounds N-(2-chloro-4-nitrophenyl)-N'-(phenoxycarbonyl) thiocarbamide (1) and N-(2-chloro-4-nitrophenyl)-N'-(4-nitrobenzoyl) thiocarbamide (2), have been derived by the reaction of phenoxycarbonyl isothiocyanate/4-nitrobenzoyl isothiocyanate with 2-chloro-4-nitroaniline. The structures of these compounds were determined by spectroscopic (FT-IR, 1H and 13C NMR, UV–Visible) and single crystal X-ray studies. Both the crysta...

Hologic (NSDQ:HOLX), known in the medtech industry for its mammography and diagnostics devices, is rethinking what it means to be a women’s healthcare company. The 6,000-person company wants to expand its reach to include products that care for women’s well-being, as well as their health – a concept that Dr. Edward Evantash honed when he led the Ob/Gyn division at Tufts Medical Center. “The beauty of being an Ob/Gyn is that you really take care of women throughout the continuum of their lifecycle,” Evantash, Hologic’s medical director &VP of global medical affairs, told MassDevi...

Publication date: Available online 10 August 2018Source: Reports of Practical Oncology &RadiotherapyAuthor(s): Albert Biete, Gabriela OsesAbstractLocally advanced uterine cervical cancer continues to present a high number of pelvic relapses. Intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) allows a precise therapeutic intensification in the surgical area in cases in which removal of the tumour recurrence is feasible. At the same time, IORT excludes the radiosensitive organs from the field of irradiation. While the first gynecological IORT took place in 1905, procedures have been limited over the years and the series are retrosp...

ConclusionIn this study on HNSCC patients presenting with clinically UP lesions the diagnostic accuracy of qualitative analysis with DWI and 18F-FDG-PET/CT and quantitative analysis of 18F-FDG-PET/CT using SUVmax were high. Adding DWI did not improve the accuracy of 18F-FDG-PET/CT.

Authors: Hugo de Almeida V, Guimarães IDS, Almendra LR, Rondon AMR, Tilli TM, de Melo AC, Sternberg C, Monteiro RQ Abstract Cisplatin-based chemoradiation is the standard treatment for cervical cancer, but chemosensitizing strategies are needed to improve patient survival. EGFR (Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor) is an oncogene overexpressed in cervical cancer that is involved in chemoresistance. Recent studies showed that EGFR upregulates multiple elements of the coagulation cascade, including tissue factor (TF) and the protease-activated receptors (PAR) 1 and 2. Moreover, many G protein-coupled receptors, i...
