[Independent (Kampala)] Kampala -As early as 9am on Feb.09, people had started gathering at Centenary Park. It was yet another 'free medical camp'. Organized by the Mulago hospital based College of Health Sciences, people would at this camp get free checkups for cervical cancer, breast cancer, hypertension and dental care among others. Organisers of the camp were just starting to hang the banners and set up tables but people were already queuing. I sensed it could get crowded.

Publication date: Available online 17 February 2018 Source:Journal of Cancer Policy Author(s): Tingting Xu, Jing Wu Cancer is not only a medical problem, but also a socio-economical issue as the high prevalence with poor prognosis brings heavy financial burden to the society. From 2005 to 2013, the incidence and mortality rates have sharply increased in China. The most common types of cancer in males in China are lung cancer, gastric cancer, liver cancer, colorectal cancer and esophageal cancer while breast cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, gastric cancer, and cervical cancer are the major types of cancer among Chin...

Abstract Regioisomers of the functional group of the main ligand (L) on a series of [Ru(phen)2L]2+and [Ru(bpy)2L]2+ complexes, where phen is 1,10 phenanthroline and bpy is 2,2'-bipyridine, were synthesised to investigate the interaction with deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) as potential therapeutics. UV-Vis binding titrations, thermal denaturation and circular dichroism were used to evaluate their interaction with DNA. The conclusions indicated the significance of the auxiliary ligand; especially 1,10-phenanthroline has on the binding constants (Kb). The systematic variation of auxiliary ligand(phen or bpy), and polypy...

Excerpted fromPrecision Medicine and the Reinvention of Human DiseaseDespite having the most advanced healthcare technology on the planet, life expectancy in the United States is not particularly high. Citizens from most of the European countries and the highly industrialized Asian countries enjoy longer life expectancies than the United States. According to the World Health Organization, the United States ranks 31st among nations, trailing behind Greece, Chile, and Costa Rica, and barely edging out Cuba [42]. Similar rankings are reported by the US Central Intelligence Agency [43]. These findings lead us to infer that acc...

AbstractIn order to find new anticancer drugs, a series of novel furoxan-based coumarin derivatives (10a–k) were synthesized and evaluated for their antiproliferative activities in vitro. All compounds displayed more potent inhibition on human cervical cancer HeLa cell proliferation than coumarin-3-carboxylic acid, and compounds10b, 10c, 10f, 10h, and10i with IC50 values ranging from 0.88 to 5.95  μM were even stronger than doxorubicin (IC50 = 10.21 μM). The further study showed that compound10i exerted the highest antiproliferative activity (IC50 = 0.60 μM) a...

Conclusion In general, these incidence patterns were similar to those reported in neighboring countries, which suggests that the majority of cancer cases occurring in Addis Ababa are captured within this starting phase of the registry. However, our finding of colorectal cancer as the most commonly-diagnosed cancer in males is novel and requires further investigation.

The TFCP2/Grainyhead family of transcription factors is divided into two distinct subfamilies, one of which includes the Grainyhead-like 1-3 (GRHL1-3) proteins and the other consists of TFCP2 (synonyms: CP2, LSF, LBP-1c), TFCP2L1 (synonyms: CRTR-1, LBP-9) and UBP1 (synonyms: LBP-1a, NF2d9). Transcription factors from the TFCP2/TFCP2L1/UBP1 subfamily are involved in various aspects of cancer development. TFCP2 is a pro-oncogenic factor in hepatocellular carcinoma, pancreatic cancer and breast cancer, may be important in cervical carcinogenesis and in colorectal cancer.
