Recruitment of African American Churches to Participate in Cancer Early Detection Interventions: A Community Perspective
This article describes the process used to engage and recruit African American churches to serve as participants in two multi-year behavioural cancer research interventions from a community perspective. Community-based organizations used purposive sampling in engaging and recruiting advisory panel members and churches to participate in these interventions. Trust, respect, open dialogue with participants, and commitment to address community health needs contributed to successful engagement and recruitment of African American churches to serve as participants in these cancer research projects. Our results may help others engage and recruit African American churches to participate in future interventions.
A Holyrood committee finds 18% of cancer patients in June were not seen within the six-week target.
ConclusionsThe effect of therapy directed toward EGFR mutation or EML4 –ALK fusion gene might obscure the significant prognostic difference between M1b and M1c.
ConclusionApalutamide had manageable safety profile, without any DLT or any new safety signals, and favourable efficacy in Japanese mCRPC patients. Thus, it was ascertained to be an adequate dosage regimen in Japanese mCRPC patients.Trial registrationClinicalTrials.gov identifier: NCT02162836.

MWCNT were contacted with ethanolic solutions of Pm/Q/Pm-Q, centrifuged and then filtered. The obtained nanosystems were structurally characterizedcaracterized by FTIR analysis. The physical stability of the nanosystem was assess...

BallamuruganAbstractThree-dimensional (3D) porous apatite (HAP) scaffold has recently emerging as functional biomaterials in bone tissue engineering and wound healing. Here we present a study of the preparation of apatite (HAP) scaffold by gel-casting technique. The scaffold prepared as engineering constructs with non-uniform porosity and interconnected pores with a micro size of 2 μm–2.4 μm range. The resultant scaffolds were characterized in terms of crystalline phase...
(Canadian Medical Association Journal) The overall rate of new cancer cases is decreasing in men but increasing in women younger than 80 years, and obesity-related cancers are increasing in young people, according to a study on cancer trends in Canada from 1971 to 2015 published in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association).
