ABSTRACT Deciphering the complex milieu that makes up the tumor microenvironment (TME) and the signaling engaged by TME cytokines continues to provide novel targets for therapeutic intervention. The IL‐6 family member Oncostatin M (OSM) has recently emerged as a potent driver of tumorigenesis, metastasis and therapy failure, molecular programs most frequently attributed to IL‐6 itself. In a recent issue of The Journal of Pathology, Kucia‐Tran et al. describe how elevated Oncostatin M receptor (OSMR) expression results in a feed‐forward loop involving the de novo production of both OSM and OSMR to facilitate aggress...

This NIHR Signal finds that for western high-income countries such as the UK, an estimated 15% to 16% of cancers could be avoided by preventing diabetes, obesity or excess weight. Although the links between high BMI, diabetes and cancer have been known for some time, this study presents the first calculations of attributable risk for 175 countries. This represents the proportion of cancers that could be prevented if the risk factors were eliminated.

CONCLUSIONS: The combination of TBx and SBx achieved the best results for the detection and prognosis of PCa-s. The use of SBx alone would have missed the detection of PCa-s in 12% of patients. PMID: 29463177 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Low-dose brachytherapy offers good short- to intermediate-term cancer control in selected men with localized PCa. Further studies are needed for safety analyses and for comparison with other treatment modalities. PMID: 29463165 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We focus on scalable public health interventions that prevent and delay the development of caries and enhance resistance to dental caries lesions. These interventions should occur throughout the life cycle, and need to be age appropriate. Mitigating disease transmission and enhancing resistance are achieved through use of various fluorides, sugar substitutes, mechanical barriers such as pit-and-fissure sealants, and antimicrobials. A key aspect is counseling and other behavioral interventions that are designed to promote use of disease transmission-inhibiting and tooth resistance-enhancing agents. Advocacy for public water...

Oral epidemiology involves studying and investigating the distribution and determinants of dental-related diseases in a specified population group to inform decisions in the management of health problems. In oral epidemiology studies, the hypothesis is typically followed by a cogent study design and data collection. Appropriate statistical analysis is essential to demonstrate the scientific association between the independent factors and the target variable. Analysis also helps to develop and build a statistical model. Poisson regression and its extensions have gained more attention in caries epidemiology than other workin...
