ConclusionNotre étude a mis l’accent sur la fréquence très importante des dysfonctions sexuelles chez les patients atteints de cancer colorectal traité. Une meilleure connaissance de ces facteurs prédictifs de DE dans cette population devrait permettre de repérer et prendre en charge de façon adaptée les troubles sexuels de ces patients.SummaryBackgroundAlthough the effect of colorectal cancer treatment on sexual function has been well established, the impact of psychosocial variables, such as depression and social support, has been neglected. We aimed in this s...

Conclusion: LN metastasis is a significant prognostic factor in stage IV by hematogenous metastasis, too. N stage progression accumulates pathologically poor prognostic factors. However, the effect on survival of each N stage progression differs depending on curative resection or not of the hematogenous metastases. PMID: 30310803 [PubMed]

This study suggests that exocrine glands can be induced from pluripotent stem cells for organ replacement regenerative therapy. Replacement of Aged Microglia Partially Reverses Cognitive Decline in Mice https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2018/10/replacement-of-aged-microglia-partially-reverses-cognitive-decline-in-mice/ Researchers here report on a compelling demonstration that shows the degree to which dysfunctional microglia contribute to age-related neurodegeneration. The scientists use a pharmacological approach to greatly deplete the microglial population and then allow it to recover naturally. The...

ConclusionNon-Western immigrants have more than three times the risk of submitting an ineligible faeces sample for colorectal cancer screening than native Danes. Translation of invitation, information leaflet, and manual into other languages or targeted information for subgroups may help decrease the risk.
