Authors: Zhao J, Guo N, Zhang L, Wang L Abstract INTRODUCTION: CA125 has poor sensitivity and low specificity for detecting early ovarian cancer. Serum ferritin is elevated in many malignancies. We evaluated the performance of ferritin alone and in combination with CA125 as a diagnostic tool to detect epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). METHODS: CA125 and ferritin were detected in the serum of 50 healthy control (HC), 50 women with benign gynaecological conditions and 124 women with EOC. The relationship between serum ferritin and CA125 and each of the clinicopathological parameters was assessed, and their diagnos...

Authors: Petrou P Abstract INTRODUCTION: The therapeutic categories of Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors of Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Receptors, mammalian target of rapamycin inhibitors and Programmed Death-1 inhibitors have transformed the treatment of metastatic renal cell cancer. Nevertheless, this comes at an increased cost, in tandem with similar fiscal pressures in the broader oncology sector, which may jeopardize the sustainability of health systems. Areas covered To this direction, the economic evaluation of these agents is essential for rational and efficient resource allocation. The aim of this study is...

Flatiron ’s key insight was that, in cancer, half or more of the most important data in health records isn’t in structured data fields, but rather in unstructured data, the free text fields of pathology reports and clinical notes, and extracting this information (at least today) requires people.

Authors: Louro H Abstract The manufactured nanomaterials (NMs) have specific physicochemical properties that confer unique mechanical, optical, electrical and magnetic characteristics that are beneficial for biomedical and industrial applications. However, recent studies have suggested that such specific physicochemical properties of the NMs may define nano-bio interactions thereby determining their toxic potential.One of the major concerns about NMs is the potential to induce cancer, suggested by some experimental studies, as seen for titanium dioxide nanomaterials or carbon nanotubes. To analyze in a short term t...

Authors: Girigoswami K Abstract In the recent times, nanomaterials are used in many sectors of science, medicine and industry, without revealing its toxic effects. Thus, it is in urgent need for exploring the toxicity along with the application of such useful nanomaterials. Nanomaterials are categorized with a particle size of 1-100 nm. They have gained increasing attention because of their novel properties, including a large specific surface area and high reaction activity. The various fundamental and practical applications of nanomaterials include drug delivery, cell imaging, and cancer therapy. Nanosized semicon...

Authors: Zuberek M, Grzelak A Abstract Application of nanomaterials in nearly every single branch of industry results in their accumulation in both abiotic environment and tissues of living organisms. Despite the common use of nanomaterials, we are not able to precisely define their toxicity towards humans and surrounding biota. Although we were able to determine final effects of chronic exposure to nanoparticles which consist of many pathologies such as respiratory diseases, allergies, diseases of cardiovascular system, disorders in embryonic life differentiation and growth disorders, toxic effects on the immune s...
