Complementary Medicine, Refusal of Conventional Cancer Therapy, and Survival Among Patients With Curable Cancers

This research article found patients who received CM were more likely to refuse additional conventional cancer treatment (surgery/chemo or radio or hormone therapy) and had higher risk of death.

Wong, Marie-Veronique Clement, Kong Li Ren, Naoto Ohi, Takeshi Tsunoda, Jianhua Qu, Boon Cher Goh, Shazib PervaizAbstractThe ability to selectively eradicate oncogene-addicted tumors while reducing systemic toxicity has endeared targeted therapies as a treatment strategy. Nevertheless, development of acquired resistance limits the benefits and durability of such a regime. Here we report evidence of enhanced reliance on mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) in oncogene-ad...

Abstract Free radicals are closely related to the occurrence and development of aging, cancer and inflammation. In this paper, the microbial transglutaminase (MTGase) was used as a catalyst to graft the collagen peptide (COP) molecules on the amino group of carboxymethyl chitosan sulfate (CMCS) to improve the antioxidant effects. FT-IR and NMR spectroscopy were used to confirm the successful grafting of COP to CMCS. Degree of substitution (DS) of CMCS-COP could be controlled by adjusting the reaction conditions. With the increase of concentration, the ability of each sample on scavenging capacity and reducibility ...

DivyaAbstractThe most common cancer in women is breast cancer, and it poses serious health issues in women, leading to increased mortality rates. Estrogen and its metabolites have been established as risk factors for breast cancer. Determining the role of genetic variants having functional involvement in regulating the estrogen concentration and detoxifying the toxic estrogen metabolites through estrogen hydroxylation by CYP1A1, CYP1B1, and catech...
