Woman battled breast cancer at the same time as her dog

Sara Page, 54, who lives in Cornwall, discovered she had an aggressive tumour in her left breast just months after being told her Border Collie-Labrador cross Freyja, aged nine, had incurable cancer.

Elderly non-operable breast cancer patients were treated at our institution with stereotactic hypo-fractionated (HF) radiotherapy (dose ranges of 25-40 Gy in 5 fractions). Due to the mobility of breast tissue and the wide range of clinical presentations of these types of patients minimal data was available. This review sought to identify planning and treatment challenges.

Survivorship care is an important and often overlooked aspect of caring for cancer patients. The aim of this pilot project was to provide breast cancer patients with information sessions to help transition to a healthful life after completing treatments.

This study compares the diagnostic and prognostic values of the angiogenic serum factors nitric oxide (NO), tumour necrosis factor-α (TNFα), basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) and copper with those of serum CA15-3 as the standard tumour marker in breast cancer patients. Microvessel density was estimated in CD31-immunostained sections from breast cancer patients. Before surgery, NO, TNFα, bFGF, copper and CA 15-3 were measured in serum samples from 30 premenopausal breast cancer patients in comparison with 15 healthy controls. The diagnostic values of the assayed parameters were compared using receiver ...

AbstractFemale gender, contraceptives, and menopausal hormone replacement treatments containing progesterone analogues associate with higher risk of meningiomas yet with lower risk of gliomas. Progesterone receptor (PR) expression and mifepristone treatment was highly discussed for meningiomas. However, much less is known in regard to progesterone actions in gliomas despite PR expression strongly correlates with their grade. Meningiomas and gliomas may grow faster during gestation; but paradoxically, parousity reduces lifetime risk of gliomas which can be explained with dichotomous cell growth-stimulating and inhibitory ac...

In this report, we describe the synthesis, characterization, in vitro anticancer activity and Carbonic anhydrase IX (CAIX) inhibition of new sulfamate conjugates of Betulin and Betulinic acid (BA). The betulinyl sulfamates were subjected to inhibit carbonic anhydrases (CA), e.g. CAIX, an attractive target for tumor-selective therapy strategies in cancer cells. Data on combined in vitro antitumor activity with CAIX inhibition are very rare. The betulinyl sulfamates were tested against five tumor cell lines and normal human skin fibroblasts. The mode of cell death on MCF7 breast cancer cells induced by the most active compou...
