The four lifestyle habits that are behind 500 cases of female cancers a WEEK

Over 26,000 female cancers could be avoided a year if women drank less alcohol, ate more fibre, cut down on processed meat and were more active, a study by Cancer Research UK found.

We examined the level of fragile histidine triad (FHIT) and p16 gene methylation in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma and explored the relationship to liver cancer. MATERIAL AND METHODS There were 56 patients with primary liver cancer who were admitted to the hospital from July 2015 to October 2017 included in the liver cancer group, and 24 non-hepatoma patients (hepatitis A/hepatitis B/hepatitis C, liver cirrhosis, liver fibrosis, and fatty liver, alcoholic liver identified as a control group. Fasting venous blood samples were collected from the 2 groups. Methylation-specific PCR (MSP) was used to detect the methylat...

ConclusionsHPV+ OPSCC was more prevalent in white males with a high number of lifetime sexual partners, as expected. Careful evaluation revealed other findings of significance that are not generally associated with this population. Half of our patients had significant historical tobacco and alcohol consumption. One quarter of patients had a history of another malignancy. These findings highlight the importance of taking a comprehensive history when determining appropriate treatment or designing future de-escalation trials in HPV+ OPSCC.

Abstract Water-soluble polymer-methotrexate (MTX) conjugates were obtained via efficient carbodiimide-mediated amidation (E = 17-100%). Binding abilities between water-soluble V-shaped or star-shaped copolymers and MTX were studied by isothermal titration calorimetry spectroscopic (UV-vis, NMR) and microscopic (scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy) techniques. The efficiency of the amidation reaction has depended on the amount of pendant amino alcohol groups and zeta potential (ZP) values of polymeric carries. The sizes of aggregates formed by polymer-drug conjugates in w...

This study evaluated pain incidence and characteristics of patients with pain after gastric ESD.MethodsWe retrospectively analyzed a prospectively collected registry of clinical, endoscopic, and pathologic results of patients who underwent ESD for gastric adenoma or cancer from January 2010 to December 2015. A Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) was used to assess pain immediately after, and 2, 12, and 24  h after ESD. The primary outcome was the use of painkillers (VAS score >  4). Analyzed data included age, sex, pathology, specimen and tumor size, procedure time, and tumor location.ResultsOf 1226 patients,...

(Natural News) Before ordering another drink, consider this: The American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO) warns us that alcohol can cause a higher risk for seven types of cancers. While it may seem harmless, light to moderate alcohol consumption can cause more than five percent of cancers and deaths from it. Not only that, the...
