Prostate problem? Take 2 nuts
By age 60, you have a 50/50 chance of having a clinically enlarged prostate. And it only gets worse every year. When your prostate isn’t functioning properly, it’s hard to enjoy life. Traditional doctors give you two choices. Go under the knife or you take Big Pharma’s drugs. Either way, you have a good chance of ending up with your manhood on the line… If you have surgery, there’s a big risk you’ll be saying goodbye to your sex life for good. The rate of impotence is a shocking 50 to 60% after prostate surgery.1 Big Pharma’s meds to shrink your prostate are no better. These synthetic drugs have a history of nightmarish side effects. Researchers from Boston University tested the drug dutasteride — brand name Avodart — on 230 men with BPH.2 After three to four years, researchers found the drug put men at higher risk of: Diabetes High cholesterol Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) Erectile dysfunction Low testosterone You don’t have to take those kinds of risks. But you should never ignore a prostate problem. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death in men. I’m going to tell you how you can protect your prostate and even treat an enlarged one — naturally and without side effects. 1. Supplement with selenium. A Harvard study found that men who got the most selenium had the healthiest prostates. This was true even for men with high PSA levels. If they we...
In this study, the authors aimed to investigate the role of 6-thioguanine nucleotide (TGN) measurements, geno/phenotyping of thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT), and their mutual relationship with TG therapy in IBD. Methods: An international retrospective, multicenter cohort study was performed at 4 centers in the Netherlands (Máxima Medical Centre) and the United Kingdom (Guy's and St. Thomas' Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, and East Surrey Hospital). Results: Overall, 526 6-TGN measurements were performed in 316 patients with IBD. The median daily dosage of TG was 20 mg/d (range 10–40 mg/...
Conclusions: A proficiency testing program by which laboratories are alerted to inaccuracies in their quantitation, pharmacokinetic modeling, and dose recommendations for busulfan in hematopoietic cell transplant recipients was developed. These rounds of proficiency testing suggests that additional educational efforts and proficiency rounds are needed to ensure appropriate busulfan dosing.
In conclusion, naringenin could be a promising antinociceptive agent acting through opioid receptors and L-arginine/NO/cGMP/KATP channel pathway.
ConclusionsTrabectedin, in combination with PLD, may have clinical benefits in Japanese patients with relapsed advanced ovarian cancer. The recommended dosage of trabectedin for further study in this population is 1.1 mg/m2 once every 21 days.Clinical trial registration number: JapicCTI-163164
This study aimed to evaluate the correlation between clinicopathologic features and serum zinc levels in patients who underwent gastrectomy for gastric cancer.MethodsThe study enrolled 617 patients who underwent gastrectomy for gastric cancer at the Kochi Medical School. Clinical data were obtained to investigate associations between clinicopathological features, including nutritional indicators and serum zinc levels. Serum zinc deficiency was defined as serum zinc level
AbstractBackgroundA significant number of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients develop osteogenic metastases (OMs) and/or brain metastases (BMs) after surgery, however, routine chest computed tomography (CT) sometimes fails to diagnose these recurrences. We investigated the incidence of BMs and OMs after pulmonary resection and aimed to identify candidates who can benefit from brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and18F-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) in addition to CT.MethodsWe retrospectively reviewed medical records of 1099 NSCLC patients who underwent pulmonary resection between 2002 ...
AbstractBackgroundThe prognosis of patients with recurrence of uterine cervical cancer after definitive radiotherapy and the efficacy of local salvage therapy for recurrence were evaluated.MethodsWe retrospectively reviewed 110 patients who were treated with definitive radiotherapy/chemoradiotherapy for uterine cervical cancer between 2008 and 2017 at our institution. Local salvage therapy was defined as any surgery or radiotherapy described in the medical record as intended for local control or cure.ResultsWe identified 25 patients who developed recurrence after definitive radiotherapy/chemoradiotherapy. The median follow...
ConclusionWhile the real-world overall survival in Japanese patients with mRCC in the targeted therapy era improved compared to that previously reported in the cytokine era, there was no clear difference in the survival of poor risk patients between these eras. There were no differences in the superiority among the models.
ConclusionsThere was no difference in OS between irinotecan and paclitaxel no in OS prolongation of S-1 combination therapy in second-line chemotherapy.
Conclusions: Individuals without a previous contralateral endarterectomy and/or history of diabetes are at lower risk of hemodynamic instability. The addition of computed tomography angiographic variables does not improve this prediction. Future prospective, randomized work is required to improve our ability to identify and treat individuals at high risk of instability during carotid angioplasty and stenting.
