(CNN) — Glyphosate, an herbicide that remains the world’s most ubiquitous weed killer, raises the cancer risk of those exposed to it by 41%, a new analysis says. Researchers from the University of Washington evaluated existing studies into the chemical — found in weed killers including Monsanto’s popular Roundup — and concluded that it significantly increases the risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), a cancer of the immune system. “All of the meta-analyses conducted to date, including our own, consistently report the same key finding: exposure to GBHs (glyphosate-based herbicides) are asso...

ConclusionThe authors demonstrate that the DECT VNCa bone marrow algorithm may be helpful in identifying isodense bone lesions of various histologies and may be used to guide percutaneous bone biopsies. This technique may help to maximize diagnostic yield, minimize the number of passes into the region of concern, and prevent patients from undergoing repeat biopsy.

Primary central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma is an aggressive brain tumor sensitive to chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Its incidence has increased in the elderly, and they account for the majority of patients. The median survival of patients older than 70 years did not change over the last 40 years and remained in the range of 6 –7 months. The definition of elderly is nonuniform, and chronological age is not the best marker of treatment tolerability or a predictor of treatment-related toxicity. Some patients who are fit can tolerate induction, consolidation, and even high-dose chemotherapy with autologous stem cell t...

Authors: Aimasso U, D'onofrio V, D'eusebio C, Devecchi A, Pira C, Merlo FD, De Francesco A Abstract Helicobacter pylori (HP) is a gram negative flagellated pathogen acid-resistant bacterium; it belongs to the order Campylobacterales that is wide spread all over the world, infecting more than 50% of the world population. HP infection is etiologically associated with non-atrophic and atrophic gastritis, peptic ulcer and with 3 to 6-fold increased relative risk for developing gastric adenocarcinoma and mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MA LT) lymphoma. For this reason HP is recognized by the World Health Organization...

Conclusion In addition to systemic influences, hepatic glucose uptake is regionally linked to the distribution of hepatic fat. Increased metabolism could be the cause or result of local fat deposition.

Conclusion As the use of CT contrast fluids results in a stronger SUV increase within the liver and mediastinal blood pool than within lymphoma tissue, this may have clinical consequences regarding visual and quantitative response assessment. Ideally, CT scans for PET attenuation correction should therefore be performed in the absence of a contrast agent.

Conclusion The most common benign salivary tumour in our study was Warthin’s tumour and the majority of these patients had a primary lung carcinoma. Given that the main predisposing factor for both pathologies is smoking, potentially this suggests an association between the incidence of primary lung carcinoma and Warthin’s tumour. Ten (14%) patients in our study had a standardized uptake value of below 3.2 (using the VUE Point HD algorithm). These patients had either no identifiable lesion on ultrasound or no malignant features on histology; therefore, we propose that a cut-off of 3.2 on PET/CT could be used ...

Opinion statementIn the past, the standard of care for treatment of BM was whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), and surgery. There has been a greater role for medical therapies in the last two decades due to the discovery of driver mutations and corresponding targeted therapies. These innovations have dramatically altered the approach to treating these patients. Some of the important mutations include epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) mutations in small cell lung cancer, human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER2) mutation in breast cancer, and ...
