Zimbabwe:First Lady Screened for Cervical, Breast Cancer

[The Herald] Firsty Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa was yesterday screened for cervical and breast cancer at United Bulawayo Hospitals (UBH) as a way of motivating women to do the same as the country intensifies the fight against the silent killer.

Conclusion: It was found that the number of programmes implemented by particular local government units and the financial resources employed in the implementation of the programmes were different. It is probable that some of the initiatives of local government units related to secondary prevention coincide with the actions undertaken under the National Programme for Fighting Cancer. The entities that carry out breast cancer and cervical cancer prevention programmes need to coordinate their actions. PMID: 29774114 [PubMed]

AbstractMethotrexate (MTX) is a folic acid derivative that is used for the treatment of different malignancies, whose applications have become limited by its toxic dose-related side effect and the possible initiation of drug resistance. The aim of the present research is to study the enhancement of the cellular cytotoxicity of MTX as an anticancer drug by conjugation to the synthesized polymer dots ’ (Pdots) surface. This conjugation was developed covalently by carbodiimide chemistry and characterized with Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), dynamic light scattering (DLS), and UV–Vis spectroscopy. ...

Conclusions: Our study shows that the ASMRs of breast, cervical, and ovarian cancer remain high in Singapore compared to Japan and Korea. Generally speaking, the mortality risk of three cancers increased with age, and period and cohort effects may collectively affect the common female malignances mortality for East Asian women.

Publication date: 1 August 2018 Source:Inorganica Chimica Acta, Volume 480 Author(s): V. Gomathi, R. Selvameena Expedient synthesis of Co(II) and Ni(II) complexes contriving the general molecular formula [M(L1)2Cl2] have been exemplified, where L1 = 4-((3-ethoxy-2-hydroxy benzylidene)amino)-N-(pyridin-2-yl)benzenesulfonamide. The structural feature of the complexes has been deduced from elemental analysis, molar conductance, magnetic moment, thermal analysis, IR, Far IR, UV powder XRD and EI mass spectra. The structure of the Sulpha pyridine Schiff base has been confirmed by single crystal XRD. The fluorescence quench...

Abstract Cancer is the second leading cause of mortality worldwide. Therapeutic approach to cancer is a multi-faceted one, whereby many cellular/enzymatic pathways have been discovered as important drug targets for the treatment of cancer. A major disadvantage of most of the currently available anticancer drugs is their non-selective cytotoxicity towards cancerous as well as healthy cells. Another major hurdle in cancer therapy is the development of resistance to anticancer drugs. This necessitates the discovery of new molecules with potent and selective cytotoxic activity towards only cancerous cells, with minimu...

Abstract The encapsulation of Pt and Au-based anticancer agents within a protein cage is a promising way to enhance the selectivity of these potential drugs. Here a cytotoxic organometallic compound containing platinum(II) and gold(I) has been encapsulated within a ferritin nanocage (AFt). Inductively plasma coupled mass spectrometry data, collected to evaluate the amount of Pt and Au within the cage, indicate disruption of the starting heterobimetallic complex upon encapsulation within the nanocage. The drug-loaded protein (Pt(II)/Au(I)-AFt) has been characterized by UV-Vis spectroscopy, circular dichroism and X-...

Abstract A new sterol, langcosterol A (1), together with two known sterols 2 and 3, were isolated from the marine sponge Xestospongia testudinaria collected in Vietnam. Their chemical structures were elucidated on the basis of extensive spectroscopic analyses and comparisons with published data. The new compound 1 and the known compound 3 exhibited moderate cytotoxic activities against three human cancer cell lines (A549, lung cancer; MCF7, breast cancer; HeLa, cervical cancer) and a human normal cell line (WI-38 fibroblast), with IC50 values ranging from 29.0 to 68.0 μM.

AbstractNebraska has one of the highest numbers of refugees per capita in the U.S. A high number of Somalis have resettled in Nebraska due to job opportunities and the low cost of living. In this paper, we report the process and the results of a cervical and breast cancer education program for Somali women conducted through a collaboration among public health, academia, and community entities. The curriculum was built to be suitable for the literacy level and cultural values of this community. Topics include female reproductive anatomy; breast and cervical cancer knowledge and screening; hepatitis C and liver cancer; and p...
