Belong developing new social media app specifically for colorectal cancer patients

Living with cancer can be isolating, and finding the right resource to connect with others in the same situation can be tough. But one app is aiming to make the process easier for patients with its new social media platform.

In this study, p53 wildtype (LoVo) and human p53 mutated (HT29 and SW480) colorectal cancer cells were treated with the miniFlatPlaSter - a device particularly developed for the treatment of tumor cells - that uses the Surface Micro Discharge (SMD) technology for plasma production in air. The present study analyzed the effects of plasma on colorectal cancer cells in vitro and on normal colon tissue ex vivo. Plasma treatment had strong effects on colon cancer cells, such as inhibition of cell proliferation, induction of cell death, and modulation of p21 expression. In contrast, CAP treatment of murine colon tissue ex vivo f...

The benefit of colonoscopy for colorectal cancer prevention depends on the adenoma detection rate (ADR). The ADR should reflect adenoma prevalence rate, estimated to be greater than 50% among the screening-age population. Yet the rate of adenoma detection by colonoscopists varies from 7% to 53%. It is estimated that every 1% increase in ADR reduces the risk of interval colorectal cancers by 3-6%. New strategies are needed to increase the ADR during colonoscopy. We tested the ability of computer-assisted image analysis, with convolutional neural networks (a deep learning model for image analysis), to improve polyp detection...

Stoeckli, Sofia J. Araújo, Eduardo Soriano Axonal growth and guidance rely on correct growth cone responses to guidance cues. Unlike the signaling cascades that link axonal growth to cytoskeletal dynamics, little is known about the crosstalk mechanisms between guidance and membrane dynamics and turnover. Recent studies indicate that wherea s axonal attraction requires exocytosis, chemorepul...

Conclusion The interobserver and intermethod correlations for most of the histogram metrics of the DCE parameters are excellent in rectal cancer. Therefore, the single-section method may be a potential alternative to the whole-tumor volume method using pre-CRT MRI, despite the fact that the high agreement between the two methods cannot be extrapolated to post-CRT MRI.

Ag(I)-N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) complexes were used as a carben transfer agents to synthesize water-soluble ruthenium(II)-NHC complexes 4a-d. All synthesized compounds were fully characterized by 1H and 13C NMR and HRMS spectroscopic tec...

Conclusion: We did not find variations in the OAR doses when each fraction was planned and treated individually. However, we found that if a single plan is used to treat subsequent fractions, OAR doses may exceed tolerance in about 30% of the cases. We believe that a larger sample size with improved compliance of bladder and bowel protocols would be needed to arrive at definitive conclusions.

This study sought to develop a simple nanoparticle-based approach to enhance the efficiency and tolerability of lipopolysaccharide (LPS), a potent ligand of Toll-like Receptor 4 (TLR4), for immunotherapy in cancer. Despite holding promise within this context, the strong pro-inflammatory properties of LPS also account for its low tolerability given localized and systemic side effects, which restrict the administrable dosage. Herein, we investigated the effect of LPS decoration as a surface-active molecule on a polymeric matrix upon its efficiency and tolerability. The LPS-decorated nanoparticles (LPS-NP) were about 150&thin...
