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...

Authors: Jing LW, Zhang C, Jin F, Wang AP Abstract BACKGROUND There is a great need for a quality of sexual life questionnaire (QVS) in breast cancer survivors (BCSs) based on the Chinese social culture since the imported tools lack localization verification. To develop a QVS in BCSs and determine its validity and reliability. MATERIAL AND METHODS In the qualitative study, a total of 21 BCSs were interviewed by purposive sampling and snowball sampling; and in the quantitative study, a total of 249 BCSs, who were admitted and received outpatient follow-up, were investigated. Regarding construct validity, factor anal...

Authors: O'Conor CJ, Chen T, González I, Cao D, Peng Y Abstract Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is an aggressive disease with poor outcome, and lacks targeted therapy. Recent studies suggest that cancer stem cells play an important role in tumorigenesis and tumor biology of TNBC. Both CD44+/CD24- and ALDH1+ breast cancer stem cells are enriched in TNBC and may contribute to the propensity of TNBC for chemotherapy resistance and tumor metastasis. There is new evidence to support the evaluation of cancer stem cells in TNBC for diagnostic purposes. Targeting cancer stem cells may also be a promising, novel...
