Stomach cancer symptoms: Nine early signs that can be mistaken for less serious conditions

STOMACH cancer is considered a fairly uncommon type of cancer but symptoms can be vague and easily mistaken for other less serious conditions. Pain in your stomach, persistent indigestion and feeling sick are just a few of the symptoms. Here are all nine early signs to look out for.

Herein, a multifunctional drug delivery system was synthesized based on gold-nanobranched coated betulinic acid liposomes (GNBS-BA-Lips) for chemo-photothermal synergistic therapy. In this system, GNBS-BA-Lips exhibited broad near-infrared (NIR) absorption, p...

We present a broad overview of in vitro potency assays suggested for DC products to determine their anti-tumor functionality. Several advantages and limitations of these assays are discussed. Also, we provide some points to consider for selection and design of a potency test. The ideal functionality assay for anti-tumor products evaluates the capacity of DCs to stimulate antigen-specific T cells. Because this approach may not be feasible for release, use of surrogate potency markers could be considered, provided that these markers are sufficiently linked to the in vivo DC biological activity and clinical response. Further ...

ConclusionNotre étude a mis l’accent sur la fréquence très importante des dysfonctions sexuelles chez les patients atteints de cancer colorectal traité. Une meilleure connaissance de ces facteurs prédictifs de DE dans cette population devrait permettre de repérer et prendre en charge de façon adaptée les troubles sexuels de ces patients.SummaryBackgroundAlthough the effect of colorectal cancer treatment on sexual function has been well established, the impact of psychosocial variables, such as depression and social support, has been neglected. We aimed in this s...

Conclusion: LN metastasis is a significant prognostic factor in stage IV by hematogenous metastasis, too. N stage progression accumulates pathologically poor prognostic factors. However, the effect on survival of each N stage progression differs depending on curative resection or not of the hematogenous metastases. PMID: 30310803 [PubMed]

This study evaluated midterm changes in body composition after open distal gastrectomy for early gastric cancer. Methods: Data from 138 gastric cancer patients who underwent open distal gastrectomy at Kyungpook National University Chilgok Hospital between January 2011 and December 2012 were collected and reviewed. Patients with pathological stage I gastric cancer and with no comorbidities at diagnosis were enrolled. Body composition data from segmental multifrequency bioelectrical impedance analysis were obtained preoperatively and at 1, 2, and 3 years after surgery. Results: The mean body weight losses at 1 and 3 ...

Authors: Hwang KT, Han W, Lee SM, Choi J, Kim J, Rhu J, Kim YA, Noh DY Abstract Purpose: The prognostic influence of 3-dimensional tumor volume (Tv) on breast cancer compared to conventional 1-dimensional tumor size (T) was investigated. Methods: Analysis was performed on a cohort of 8,996 primary breast cancer patients who were initially diagnosed with TNM stage I-III. Tumor size was defined as the maximum tumor dimension, and Tv was calculated by the equation of (4π × r1 × r2 × r3)/3; r1, r2, and r3 were defined as half of the largest, intermediate, and shortest dimension of the tumor, re...

Taking a low-dose aspirin every day has long been known to cut the chances of another heart attack, stroke or other heart problem in people who already have had one, but the risks don’t outweigh the benefits for most other folks, major new research finds. Although it’s been used for more than a century, aspirin’s value in many situations is still unclear. The latest studies are some of the largest and longest to test this pennies-a-day blood thinner in people who don’t yet have heart disease or a blood vessel-related problem. One found that aspirin did not help prevent first strokes or heart attacks...
