Doctors thought a woman had cancer — but it was just a reaction to an old tattoo

Her symptoms pointed to cancer. She had sought medical attention for small lumps under her arms, but doctors in Australia discovered it was worse than that — enlarged lymph nodes were also in her chest and in the roots of her lungs. They suspected it was lymphoma, a type of cancer that attacks the lymphatic system, which removes toxins […]Related:Why do people give blood after disasters, but not during blood drives?Who will take care of Nevada’s wounded psyche?Failure to vaccinate is likely driver of U.S. measles outbreaks, report says

SpriggsAbstractCurrently, 1 in 68 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD; Centers for Disease Control &Prevention, 2015) and this growing population of learners has been noted as one of the most challenging groups to teach. Teacher self-efficacy, the belief teachers hold about their instructional capabilities, has been shown to differ according to contextual factors, such as the type of students teachers face. The ...

We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to synthesize the available evidence regarding to the prognostic value of STAS in NSCLCs.MethodsStudies were identified by searching databases including PubMed, EMBASE...

Human evolution suggests that Australian Aboriginal individuals came to Australia approximately 50 000 years ago, during the time it made up part of Sahul. Since then the colonisation of Australia by Europeans has meant significant admixture...

This study represents a pooled analysis from the control arms of two clinical trials (NCT00290966; NCT00678535). Both control arms evaluated fluoropyrimidine/cisplatin combination in the first line treatment of advanced gastric cancer. Univariate and multivariate Cox regression analyses were performed to assess factors affecting overall and progression-free survival. Factors with P

Abstract On September 22, 2017, "Engaging the Forgotten Parent: Conference of Experts on Fathers' Role in Children's Weight-Related Behaviours and Outcomes" brought researchers, students, health professionals, community stakeholders, and knowledge users from Canada, Australia, and the United States together to Toronto, Ontario, for a 1-day gathering focused on furthering scientific understanding of effective strategies to recruit, engage, and retain fathers in family-based obesity research. Furthermore this conference focused on identifying key knowledge gaps and opportunities for collaborative research ...

We present data on plastome assembly, transcriptomic data that confirm the transcriptional activity of all genes and describe for the first time six transcript variants of a putative ORF likely having oxidoreductase activity. Our data show that such extreme reduction in P. boyacensis is similar but not identical to that reported in one Australian and one African species of the genus. Such intercontinental similarity suggests that the legume-Pilostyles holoparasitism was already in place during the main African-Australian-South American break-up. We compare plastome content and synteny between the three sequenced species, p...

YatesAbstractPlant taxa can be broadly divided based on the mechanisms enabling persistence through whole-crown disturbances, specifically whether individuals resprout, populations reseed, or both or neither of these mechanisms are employed. At scales from species through to communities, the balance of disturbance-response types has major ramifications for ecological function and biodiversity conservation. In some lineages, morpho...

Low solubility and bioavailability of drug limits the use of conventional drug administrative methods and hence the need for drug delivery vehicles arises. Different drug delivery vehicles have been used in the past but usually, the information is limited to qualitative in nature. Here, we have reported quantitative insights into interaction of human s...

CONCLUSIONS: In the presence of progressive dyspnea, cough, and lesions comparable to interstitial lung disease, diagnosis of PLC should be considered. Pulmonary lymphangitis carcinomatosis can be the first manifestation of primary occult neoplasm and may occur at any age. Adenocarcinoma, especially primary lung, breast, and gastric cancers is the most common cancer coexisting with PLC. PMID: 30900501 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
