CONCLUSION: Additional counseling by nurses over the telephone does not increase the participation rate. Approaching patients who have CRC is an opportunity to increase the participation of their first-degree relatives in screening colonoscopy. The frequency of neoplasia that was found in this study underscores the need to screen relatives even before they reach the usual age threshold for screening. PMID: 30518470 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Lee HH, Lee BI Abstract From dye-assisted conventional chromoendoscopy to novel virtual chromoendoscopy, image-enhanced endoscopy (IEE) is continuously evolving to meet clinical needs and improve the quality of colonoscopy. Dye-assisted chromoendoscopy using indigo carmine or crystal violet, although slightly old-fashioned, is still useful to emphasize the pit patterns of the colonic mucosa and predict the histological structures of relevant lesions. Equipment-based virtual chromoendoscopy has the advantage of being relatively easy to use. There are several types of virtual chromoendoscopy that vary depend...

In this study, we have generated and characterised congenic mice that contain the BALB/c SuprMam1 (susceptibility) locus on a C57BL/6 (resistant) background and discovered a subtle impairment in the vitamin D/ calcium/ parathyroid hormone (PTH) pathway. This was evident as altered gene expression in the mammary glands of key players in this pathway. Further functional analysis of the mice revealed elevated PTH levels, reduced Cyp27b1 expression in kidneys, and reduced trabecular bone volume/ tissue volume percentage. Plasma 25(OH)D and serum calcium were unchanged. This impairment was a result of genetic differences and oc...

Publication date: 1 March 2019Source: Inorganica Chimica Acta, Volume 487Author(s): Ting Zhu, Tian Yu Wu, Jing Ao Ren, Su Jian Qian, Yan Li, Wan Ting Su, Deng Feng Zou, Qiao Yun Li, Jie YangAbstractTwo new coordination compounds, [Zn(pytzipa)2(H2O)4]·2H2O (1) and [Zn2(dtzpda)(H2O)5]·3H2O (2) have been synthesized by solvothermal reactions of Zn(NO3)2·6H2O with Hpytzipa or H4dtzpda, respectively (Hpytzipa = 5-(3-pyridyl)tetrazole-2-isoproponaic acid, H4dtzpda = 3,3-di(1H-tetrazol-5-yl)pentanedioic acid). The X-ray diffraction results reveal that compound 1 is a linear chain in which pytzipa acts...

Publication date: Available online 7 December 2018Source: Environmental Toxicology and PharmacologyAuthor(s): Ayse Basak Engin, Atilla EnginAbstractAlthough most countries regulate the aflatoxin levels in food by legislations, high amounts of aflatoxin B1 (AFB1)-DNA adducts can still be detected in normal and tumorous tissue obtained from cancer patients. AFB1 cannot directly interact with DNA unless it is biotransformed to AFB1-8, 9-epoxide via cytochrome p450 enzymes. This metabolite spontaneously and irreversibly attaches to guanine residues to generate highly mutagenic DNA adducts. AFB1-induced mutation of ATM kinase r...

(Natural News) A lot of blame is passed around when talking about illness. You’ve probably heard a lot of common beliefs about what causes disease – some true and some a bit misinformed. For example, it’s often said that eating too much sugar causes diabetes, spending too much time in the sun causes skin cancer,...

Ibrahim, Mohamed El-Shinawi, David H. Sherr, Mona M. MohamedAbstractThe aim of the present study was to evaluate the expression levels of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) and its target gene CYP1B1 and to correlate their expression with Wnt5a/b-β-catenin, the CD44+/CD24(-/low) cancer stem cell (CSC) subset and factors associated with poor prognosis in inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) and non-IBC patients. The methods of analy...
