AbstractPurpose of the ReviewBrain metastasis is a common complication of advanced malignancies, especially, lung cancer, breast cancer, renal cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Traditionally surgery, when indicated, and radiation therapy, either as whole-brain radiation therapy or stereotactic radiosurgery, constituted the major treatment options for brain metastases. Until recently, most of the systemic chemotherapy agents had limited activity for brain metastases. However, with the advent of small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitors and immunotherapy agents, there has been renewed interest in using these agents in the manage...

MenahemSummaryMultidisciplinary management of infra-peritoneal rectal cancer has pushed back the frontiers of sphincter preservation, without impairment of carcinological outcome. However, functional intestinal sequelae, grouping together several symptoms known under the name of anterior resection syndrome (ARS), have emerged and become an increasingly frequent concern for both patients and physicians. The pathophysiology is complex: ARS is a combination in various degrees of stool frequency, i...

Authors: Ju Z, Wang J, Zhang H, Du L, Xu W, Wang X, Ge R, Li J, Zheng Q, Li J Abstract CyberKnife stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is becoming increasingly used for cancer treatment and, to maximize its clinical application, it is important to define the dosimetric characteristics, optimal dose and fractionation regimens. The aim of this study was to evaluate the dose fall-off in two fractionated regimens of CyberKnife SBRT during the treatment of thoracic spinal metastasis. Patients with spinal metastasis involving a vertebra and pedicle were treated with 40 Gy in 5 fractions (n = 4), and patients with s...

(Natural News) Also known as starflower, borage (Borago officinalis) is an herbaceous flowering plant most known for being the source of borage oil. Like many other plant-based oils, borage oil contains a powerful anti-inflammatory compound known as gamma-linolenic acid (GLA); however, borage oil is unique in that its GLA content is remarkably high. With this...

Publication date: Available online 16 August 2018Source: Gynecologic Oncology ReportsAuthor(s): Josette C. Dawkins, Gregory K. Lewis, Eugene P. ToyAbstractCervical cancer is the most common gynecologic malignancy worldwide and the third most common gynecologic cancer in the USA. Improved screening methods such as liquid-based cytology accompanied by Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) co-testing have contributed to a declining incidence of cervical cancer. There are approximately 13,000 new cases per year in the United States, accounting for 4200 deaths (Siegel et al., 2011). Pelvic organ prolapse increases with age, obesity and p...

Conclusion.BM of sarcomas are rare and associated with a dismal outcome. Multidisciplinary management with chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery is associated with a better survival.Implications for Practice.The incidence of brain and meningeal metastasis in bone and soft tissue sarcomas is estimated between 1% and 8%. Published data are derived from small retrospective case series, often in the pediatric population. A prognostic index is important to guide both clinical decision‐making and outcomes research, but one such is lacking for adult sarcoma patients with brain metastases. The current study describes brai...

This study was designed to research the influence of activating transcription factor 3 (ATF3) on the radioresistance of breast cancer. ATF3 expression was measured by qRT-PCR and immunohistochemistry. Cancerous cell lines were cultured in vitro, and the expression of ATF3 was gauged by both qRT-PCR and Western blot before and after the radiation therapy. Cellular cycle and apoptosis were analysed by flow cytometry. Changes in the expression of corresponding proteins in the downstream pathways were identified by Western blot. Tumour xenograft was used to evaluate the effect of ATF3 in vivo. ATF3 was observed stronger in bre...
