Breast Cancer Stage at Diagnosis in a New Jersey Cancer Education and Early Detection Site.

This study will provide a first snapshot of the effectiveness of the New Jersey program, by comparing stage at diagnosis for enrollees as compared with nonenrollees who received definitive treatment for breast cancer at the same academic medical center.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewOne of the most important recent advances in the management of cancer patients have become the development of guidelines. Guidelines are usually evidence-based or international consensus guidelines. Those guidelines may not be applicable worldwide, especially where resources are limited. This prompted initiatives for the development of resource-stratified guidelines so that health care providers and authorities can do the best they can with the resources they have, while working on improving their resources. We will describe the process of development of those guidelines and briefly review recommen...

Abstract With abilities to renew themselves and lead to heterogeneity of tumors, cancer stem cells (CSCs) are similar to stem cells. As three leading causes of death that endanger women's health, breast cancer, ovarian cancer and cervical cancer are characterized by high degree of malignancy, metastasis and recurrence. Associated with women's fertility, these three malignancies are common and representative among females. These years, research findings have suggested that CSCs are closely connected with many cancers (including aforementioned three malignancies) and several processes of tumors such as their genesis...

Alkhatib, Abdulwahab Noor WaliAbstractThe present study aimed to solubilize the antineoplastic agent, mitomycin C (MMC), in two nanoemulsions (NEs) consisting of different essential oils (ginger (Gi) and frankincense (Fr)) in order to examine their anticancer activities on the HeLa cervical cancer cells and MCF-7 breast cancer cells. The two NEs-based Gi and Fr oil were produced by a high-pressure homogenization technique followed by solubilizing of the MMC in both NE formulas. The produced formulas wer...
