Authors: Wang S, Miao Z, Yang Q, Wang Y, Zhang J Abstract Colon cancer is still one of the most common causes of cancer in human and is characterized by lymphocyte infiltrates and originates from the epithelial cells found in the lining of colon or rectum of the gastrointestinal tract. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are composed of the multipotent stem cell group of stroma and can be differentiated as various cell lineages, such as fibroblasts, osteoblasts, and adipocytes. MSCs provide mechanical and structural support and have potential functions during tumor growth and metastasis. The efficacy of MSC-based therapi...

Conclusion: Aiming to achieve longer progression-free survival in cases of GS, we recommend resecting all portions of the mass as much as possible, so named en bloc resection, and then refer the patients for appropriate and timely chemoradiotherapy. PMID: 30533274 [PubMed]

Conclusions: The combination of ViewSite and brain spatulas provides wide and adequate operative fields to observe the interface between lesions and normal tissue, and to prevent brain injury from excessive retraction pressure on the brain derived from repositioning of the ViewSite. Postoperative 3D volumetric analysis shows minimal damage to normal brain tissue. This report may provide new insight into the use of the ViewSite tubular retractor. PMID: 30533267 [PubMed]

The hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis is a common site of unintended, acquired disease either during or after the treatment of cancer. Children treated with external radiation therapy are at the highest risk for developing a thyroid-related late effect, but thyroid dysfunction and second primary thyroid neoplasms can also occur after treatment with radiopharmaceutical agents such as131I-metaiodobenzylguanidine. Increasingly recognized is the development of early thyroid dysfunction as an off-target consequence of the more novel cancer therapeutics such as the tyrosine kinase inhibitors and immune checkpoint inhibitors. T...

Conclusions: The ptWBS diagnostic role was clinically relevant for the therapeutic strategies of our patients only in 1.1% of the cases. The cost-effectiveness of performing RRA and ptWBS in all LR and IR patients to find 1 –2% of the cases with distant metastases remains controversial.Eur Thyroid J
