Authors: D'Angelo A, Rinaldi P, Belli P, D'Amico R, Carlino G, Grippo C, Giuliani M, Orlandi A, Infante A, Manfredi R Abstract OBJECTIVE: We investigated the accuracy of Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS) compared to handheld ultrasound (HHUS) for monitoring tumor response to neoadjuvant treatment (NAT) in breast cancer (BC). PATIENTS AND METHODS: All the patients submitted to biopsy in our Institution, from January 2017 to May 2017, proven invasive BC and eligible for NAT, were enrolled in this prospective study. The participants underwent ABVS, HHUS, dynamic contrast-enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (D...

This study systematically evaluated the evidence from randomized clinical trials currently available. Ten studies were retrieved, comprising 1520 breast cancer patients. Metformin therapy reduced the levels of insulin and HOMA-IR, sex hormones and sex hormone-binding globulin, Ki67, caspase-3, p-Akt, obesity, hs-CRP, blood glucose and lipid profile. Two studies reported conflicting results on survival outcomes. The overall survival was nonsignificantly better in the metformin arm than the control arm (pooled rate ratio 0.89, 95% confidence interval 0.68-1.18, P = 0.43). The progression-free survival was not d...

Publication date: Available online 18 January 2019Source: Biosensors and BioelectronicsAuthor(s): Ya Cao, Yuhao Dai, Hong Chen, Yingying Tang, Xu Chen, Ying Wang, Jing Zhao, Xiaoli ZhuAbstractIn this work, DNA-templated silver nanoclusters (DNA-AgNCs) with unique fluorescent and electrochemical properties are prepared as dual signal probes for both qualitative imaging and quantitative detection of cancer cells in an integrated system. ITO electrode that has good light transmittance and electric conductivity is employed as a substrate for dual analysis of cancer cells. ITO electrode is firstly modified by AS1141 aptamer, wh...

Quality of life, patient satisfaction and cosmetic outcome after delayed breast reconstruction using DIEP flap: a 10 years' follow-up survey. J Plast Surg Hand Surg. 2019 Jan 18;:1-6 Authors: Skraastad BK, Knudsen C, Jackson C, Utheim TP, Pripp AH, Tønseth KA Abstract Autologous breast reconstruction (BR) aims to restore body image and improve health-related quality of life in women undergoing mastectomy due to breast cancer. We wanted to explore patient-reported cosmetic results and satisfaction 10 or more years post BR surgery, using deep inferior epigastric perforator flap (DIEP). This i...

Authors: Bobrowska-Korczak B, Skrajnowska D, Seidel K, Bielecki W, Gadzinski B Abstract The aim of the present study was to assess the effect of zinc and copper, separately or in combination with resveratrol, on the concentration of 15-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (15-HETE) in urine of rats with mammary cancer (adenocarcinoma) induced with 7,12- dimethyl-1,2-benz[a]anthracene (+ DMBA). The research focused on the kinetics of alterations in urinary 15-HETE at the early stage of carcinogenesis, as well as on the influence of dietary factors on the process. The content of 15-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid in the rats' u...

The physical and psychological side effects of breast cancer therapies can have substantial impact on survivors' physical and social functioning. Roughly half of the more than 3 million Americans alive with a history of breast cancer report adverse, function-degrading sequelae related to their oncologic treatments. Care delivery models for the timely delivery of rehabilitation services have been proposed yet limitedly vetted or implemented. These include the prospective surveillance model, procedure-linked referrals, survivorship care plans, and risk stratification. Patients' capacity to engage in the rehabilitative proces...

This study sought to test a methodology for estimating over-screening due to excessive periodicity, defined as a smaller than recommended interval between exams, and its association with socio-demographic characteristics. A cohort of women who underwent mammography in 2010, and whose result was normal, was assembled through probabilistic linkage SISMAMA records based on a set of personal identifiers. We used data from women living in the micro health region of Juiz de Fora/Lima Duarte/Bom Jardim, Minas Gerais State, Brazil, who were followed in the System until the end of 2012. The rate of over-screening was 150/1,000 wome...
