Intermittent 96-Hour Auricular Electroacupuncture for Hot Flashes in Patients with Prostate Cancer: A Pilot Study.
Conclusions: Vasomotor disturbance, caused by gender hormone withdrawal-either naturally or in patients treated with ADT, as in this study-is a well-defined neurophysiologic condition. This disorder is a constellation of findings that reflect autonomic disturbances of excessive sympathetic and reduced parasympathetic activity. AEA intervention with the Neurova device is simple to administer, is well-tolerated, and appears to be effective for restoring autonomic balance. Further evaluation of AEA for vasomotor disturbances could provide more insight into the mechanisms of AEA neuromodulation and potentially lead to approaches for treating not only these symptoms but also other neurologic conditions with components of autonomic disturbances.

CONCLUSION: The results demonstrate ethnic, race, age and gender disparities in iCCA incidence and survival, and confirm continued increase in iCCA incidence in the United States. PMID: 29469047 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: There are many gaps in the evidence base for the surgical correction of obstructive sleep apnoea. There is emerging evidence favouring subtotal tonsillectomy. There is continuing uncertainty around the prediction of the level of post-operative care that any individual child might require. The long-term benefit of surgical correction is a particularly fertile ground for further research. PMID: 29463325 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Optical coherence tomography angiography may be superior to flourescein angiography in detecting CNV in adult-onset foveomacular vitelliform dystrophy, especially in the pseudohypopyon stage. There are common artifacts that must be considered when analyzing vitelliform lesions with OCTA, including segmentation errors and inability to visualize flow under the vitelliform lesion in the choriocapillaris.
Conclusion: Female carriers of ocular albinism may manifest signs of retinal pigment epithelium mosaicism at the macula and the peripheral fundus. A tapetal-like reflex on fundus autofluorescence may be considered the macular correlate of “mud-splatter.”
Enzalutamide may have a role in prostate cancer therapy, but randomized trials are needed, says Dr Chodak.Medscape Urology
February 23, 2018—(BRONX, NY)—Earlier this week, in a crowded conference room in the Price Center/Block Pavilion, members of the Einstein-Montefiore community hosted a special visit from U.S. Congressman Joseph Crowley (D-NY, 14th District). At his office’s request, Rep. Crowley met with more than a dozen BOLD Buddies, volunteer peer mentors who provide support for cancer patients and survivors in the Bronx. Members of the group shared their personal stories and explained commitment to offer their support, hope and encouragement to others facing cancer and treatment at all stages of disease.
CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONSThese results revealed that 4‐HNE is a strong agonist for GPR109A that induces Gαi‐dependent anti‐inflammatory and Gβγ‐dependent cell death responses. Moreover, the present study implicates that specific intracellular signaling molecules, but not GPR109A, can serve as therapeutic targets to block 4‐HNE‐induced cell death.
CANCER symptoms usually include an unexplained change in the body ’s normal processes. But, having a pain in your side that doesn’t go away could be a sign of kidney cancer, and you should see a doctor.
