ConclusionsOur results demonstrated that ddPCR could be used in detecting BRAF V600E mutation from FNA fluid samples with higher sensitivity and accuracy than ARMS.
CANCER symptoms cover a wide range of problems, some which may seem obvious while others are less so. Even simple things like a persistent cough, or frequent heartburn or indigestion could be a sign of some cancers, so it ’s important to monitor any changes to your body, no matter how small. If you suffer from heartburn or indigestion, here’s when to see a GP.
AbstractBladder cancer is currently considered the most common malignancy of the urinary tract. Thulium laser en bloc resection of bladder tumor (TmLRBT) and plasmakinetic transurethral resection of bladder tumor (PK-TURBT) are two alternative common procedures used in our department to manage patients with primary non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) over the past decade. In this work, the safety and efficacy of TmLRBT were retrospectively compared to those of PK-TURBT in patients with primary NMIBC. From January 2013 to December 2015, 256 patients diagnosed with primary NMIBC were selected for this retrospective st...

Patients receiving new kidneys and livers must take damaging anti-rejection drugs for the rest of their lives. Now researchers hope to train the immune system instead of just tamping it down.
We report the case of a 60-year-old female with a history of chronic low back and legs pain secondary to L4 and L5 laminectomies posterior arthrodesis and fusion.
This study aimed at exploring the effects of tDCS on negative emotion regulation as it pertains to ADHD related symptoms, which could potentially provide support for the use of the tDCS as an alternative treatment for ADHD.
Vagal nerve stimulation is gaining recognition as an important therapeutic approach especially for non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular disease (CVD), Depression, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Type 2 Diabetes, Alzheimer, and certain types of cancer. In turn, decreased vagal tone its implicated in the prognosis of a wide range of diseases. Afferent vagal stimulation seems to have the key to reset certain pathophysiological states of the body leading to health improvement by reshaping neural networks.
Background: Smoking cessation and relapse prevention represent an important opportunity to improve cancer survival rates, reduce the risk of cancer treatment complications, and improve quality of life.. Unfortunately, about half of cancer patients continue to smoke despite smoking being a known and often reversible cause of premature death.. We have previously shown that repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) over the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) decreases cue craving, reduces cigarette consumption and increases quit rate in nicotine dependent smokers.
