We present our series of 21 cases that support this safe, reliable, and simple method for intact uterine delivery during robotic hysterectomy in minimally invasive gynecological oncology practice.
Conclusion: Trained SVM classifier based on arm-level CNVs can be used as a promising method to screen early-stage CRC.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;45:1444 –1454
Conclusion: After a decade since the introduction of bevacizumab, no effective predictive biomarkers are available in routine clinical practice. In this review, we summarized the potential candidate dynamic biomarkers that may play a role in this setting.
This study shows that andrographolide inhibits the development of osteoclasts ( = the cells that chew away at our bones, which is fine in a healthy situation, not fine in cancer where everything goes nutso), while increasing the presence of osteoblasts (bone builders). The researchers say that the current therapies used to treat osteolytic diseases have many unwanted side effects. And they’re not just referring to bisphosphonates (which can cause osteonecrosis of the jaw) but also to new treatments such as the monoclonal antibody denosumab, Denosumab can cause low calcium levels, weakness, constipation, bac...
ConclusionExercise training is feasible in patients with colorectal cancer after completion of adjuvant chemotherapy. The main problem encountered during the study was compliance. To improve compliance of exercise training, several measures were adapted for the upcoming prospective randomized ABCSG C08 Exercise II study.
ConclusionsThis study generated qualitative data on survivorship impacts and components of survivor resilience in NZ. It also provided insights into the need for better strategies and pathways to help the NZ health system be more responsive to both M āori and non-Māori survivors.Implications for cancer survivorsSurvivor impacts create vulnerabilities that are experienced and described differently by individuals and groups in NZ. Tailored survivor support that can enhance resilience and support relationships is needed in NZ.
Authors: Jia B, Xia L, Cao F Abstract Colorectal cancer (CRC) develops from the colon or rectum and is the fourth highest inducer of cancer mortality. In the present study, cancer tissues and normal tissues were extracted from patients with CRC who were treated in the Affiliated Hospital of Shandong University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (Jinan, China). Reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction demonstrated that the expression level of miR-766-5p was significantly higher (P
Obesity and cancer risk have a mysterious relationship, with obesity increasing the risk for 13 types of cancer. For some cancers — including pediatric cancers — obesity affects survival rates, which are lower for people who are obese.With an increasing population of overweight and obese children in the United States, researchers and physicians are racing to understand this connection – and what to do about it.Dr.Steven Mittelman, chief of pediatric endocrinology atUCLA Mattel Children ’s Hospital, is among those looking for clues to improve children ’s survival and recovery from cancer. But u...
Conclusions: Enhancing family cohesion and communication within the family can improve the spouses’ HRQOL. Findings regarding sex differences serve as a rationale for gender-based approaches to improving HRQOL in survivorship care in the family context. Implications for Practice: Couple- and/or family-based interventions should be designed to enhance family cohesion and improve family communication skills for effective adjustments within couples and families. Supportive care within the family context can be promoted to address the diverse challenges of survivorship care.
