RSNA: BMI Linked to Detection of Breast Tumor Larger Than 2 cm
BMI linked to detection of tumor larger than 2 cm among screen - detected and interval cancers
CONCLUSIONS Our study demonstrated that FEZF1-AS1 exerted an oncogenic role in ovarian cancer via modulating JAK-STAT3 pathway. PMID: 30416194 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: M R, S V, Ramirez JT, A V, L L Abstract Novel materials are explored very often by material scientists to design an efficient drug delivery system to target carcinoma cells. Among various nanosystem, functionalized Iron oxide Nanoparticles (IoNP) were definitely studied especially to target, endocyte and release drug moieties inside the cells. This IoNP platform is usually composed of an inorganic core and a highly biocompatible shell layer in order to perform numerous tasks at the same time, such as drug delivery, multimodal imaging, and instantaneous monitoring, along with collective therapeutic approach...
ConclusionOur results indicated that based on fecal bacterial candidates, statistical simple linear combination model and ROC curve analysis, early detection of AP and CRC might be possible.

Abstract Melanoma is a potentially aggressive skin cancer with a steadily rising incidence. Most melanomas are diagnosed at an early stage and associated with an excellent prognosis when treated appropriately. Primary treatment for melanoma is surgical. Wider surgical margins and a variety of techniques for comprehensive histologic margin assessment may be considered for lentigo maligna type melanoma on the head and neck, due to characteristic broad subclinical extension. For invasive melanoma, sentinel lymph node biopsy may be indicated for staging, and to guide further management and follow-up. Appropriate treat...
Abstract Radiotherapy plays a role in the definitive or adjuvant management of early and late stage skin cancers including nonmelanoma basal cell carcinoma and cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma, and Merkel cell carcinoma. The role of radiotherapy in skin cancers of the head and neck is reviewed including early and advanced-stage nonmelanoma skin cancers, melanoma, and Merkel cell carcinoma. In particular, the indications, oncologic outcomes, and technical aspects of radiotherapy for these diseases are discussed. PMID: 30420066 [PubMed - in process]
BLOATED stomach pain is most commonly caused by trapped wind, but can also be a symptom of stomach cancer. How do you know if bloating indicates cancer?
Even when she was gone, she was present in the patient sitting before me and in the way I was newly able to comfort and reassure her.
Conclusions: Our findings suggest claims-based algorithms identify incident cancer with variable reliability when measured against an observational cohort study reference standard. Self-reported baseline information available in cohort studies is more effective in removing prevalent cancer cases than are claims data algorithms. Use of claims-based algorithms should be tailored to the research question at hand and the nature of available observational cohort data.
Conclusions: The new SEER-Medicare-MDS dataset provides a valuable resource for understanding the postacute and long-term care experiences of cancer patients receiving care in United States’ nursing homes.
