Screening for human papillomavirus, cervical cytological abnormalities and associated risk factors in HIV ‐positive and HIV‐negative women in Rwanda
ConclusionsThe currently used quadrivalent vaccine may be insufficient to give satisfactory HPV coverage in Rwanda. HPV Screening may be effective to identify women at risk of developing cervical cancer, particularly if provided to high‐risk patients.

CONCLUSION: The results suggest that the combination of lapatinib plus capecitabine can improve PFS and OS in patients with HER2-positive breast cancer that has progressed on trastuzumab. However, it appears that trastuzumab emtansine provides better treatment outcomes in this context. . PMID: 29231164 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: The overall melanoma detection rate in our free Skin Cancer Screening Program is comparable to those in European public activities. The costs of free screening programs compare favorably with the prevented potential therapeutic costs of late-stage melanoma. The low response rate of screenees agreeing to be followed up limits conclusions of this study.Dermatology
This study aimed to assess the effects of ZST93 on cell proliferation and its role in the chemosensitivity to gemcitabine in human pancreatic cancer cells. The effects of ZST93 on cancer cell proliferation, cell cycle distribution, apoptosis and autophagy were evaluated in various human pancreatic cancer cell lines, and the anti‐tumor effects of ZST93 alone and in combination with gemcitabine were identified in a xenograft mouse model. The results showed that ZST93 could inhibit the proliferation of pancreatic cancer cells and arrest cell cycle at G0/G1 phase by regulating the expression of Cyclin D1 and Cyclin A2. Moreo...

CANCER symptoms affect men more than women, but spotting them early could help survival rates. Signs of the disease include diarrhoea, weight loss and back pain.
A dispute between the Hawaii Health Systems Corp. and the Pacific Cancer Institute over the cancer center ’s ground lease at the Maui Memorial Medical Center campus has reached an impasse and is headed to state court ahead of a deadline for resolution next month. The state agency alleges the leases signed with Pacific Cancer Institute in 2005 and 2012 are illegal because they violate two federal laws . The state filed a lawsuit in 2nd District Circuit Court seeking to void the leases to comply with…
Authors: Mathur P, Jha S, Ramteke S, Jain NK Abstract Silver nanoparticles are particles in the size ranging between 1 and 100 nm. The two major methods used for synthesis of silver nanoparticle are the physical and chemical methods with the disadvantage that they are expensive and can also have toxicity. Biological method is being used as an expedient alternative, as this approach is environment-friendly and less toxic and it includes plant extracts, microorganism, fungi, etc. The major applications of silver nanoparticles in the medical field include diagnostic applications and therapeutic applications, ap...
