Hernández-MendozaAbstractRecent studies have shown that the intracellular content of lactic acid bacteria may be a source of metabolites with antioxidant properties. In order to determine the potential participation of relevant intracellular components on its antioxidant properties, as well as their possible interactions, different enzymatic and chemical treatments were applied to either Lact...
Authors: Karczewski J, Śledzińska E, Baturo A, Jończyk I, Maleszko A, Maleszko A, Samborski P, Begier-Krasińska B, Dobrowolska A Abstract The prevalence of obesity has recently increased dramatically and has contributed to the increasing prevalence of various pathological conditions, including type 2 diabetes mellitus, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, asthma, various types of cancer, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, and others. Accumulating evidence points to localized inflammation in adipose tissue, which, in turn, promotes systemic low-grade inflammation as a primary force contributing to the d...
In conclusion, inflammatory cytokines and adipokines seem to have a pivotal role in the regulation of spermatogenesis; any imbalance in this stable environment may lead to infertility. Nevertheless, further studies are needed to clarify their exact role. PMID: 30547889 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: Bone pain is a common and sometimes severe symptom of bone metastases in advanced breast cancer and a common reason for initiating BTA treatment. Safety and efficacy were the main factors considered by physicians when selecting BTAs. Past Presentations: Data previously presented at the ISPOR 18th Annual European Congress, Milan, Italy; November 7-11, 2015 and at the Breast Cancer Symposium, San Francisco, CA, USA; September 25-27, 2015.

CONCLUSIONS: Although the use of PP-CSF is commonplace in current US clinical practice, underutilization in cancer patients receiving chemotherapy regimens with an intermediate/high-risk for FN may still be an issue. Use of same-day PP-CSF increased markedly from the end of 2015, although this finding reflects (at least in part) increased uptake of pegfilgrastim delivered via an on-body injector as well as the recent change in clinical practice guidelines. Overall, patients receiving PP-CSF appear to have a lower risk of FN during the first cycle of chemotherapy. PMID: 30550346 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionThe problem of the radon exposure is still unresolved and needs further studies on bigger human cohorts in order to search for more sensitive biomarkers.
