Diabetes: Female diabetics face dramatically increased chance of mouth cancer in new study

DIABETES can result in a number of complications if symptoms go unchecked. Eye problems and foot problems are just some of the issues that can occur. But new research has now discovered women with the condition face a dramatically increased chance of developing mouth cancer.

Publication date: June 2019Source: Microchemical Journal, Volume 147Author(s): Linshun Xie, Tianhua Li, Futao Hu, Qianli Jiang, Qiqin Wang, Ning GanAbstractTo detect trace level of tumor markers (TMs) plays a crucial role in the early diagnosis of cancer. However, the fabrication of assays to simultaneously detect trace levels of TMs was still challengeable. The study was aimed to develop a novel microchip electrophoresis (MC) and antibody-aptamer based hybrid detection strategy for simultaneous determination of prostate specific antigen (PSA), carcino-embryonic antigen (CEA) and carbohydrate antigen 125 (CA125) in human s...

This study demonstrates that ROS-responsive TEP NPs are effective drug carriers for efficient intracellular delivery of hydrophobic drug, PL.Graphical abstractROS-responsive thioether-bearing polymers (TEP) were synthesized and used as drug carriers for intracellular delivery of piperlongumine (PL) in cancer cells. The PL-loaded TEP nanoparticles exhibited ROS-triggered disassembly in cancer cells, leading to efficient cancer cell-specific apoptosis.

The objectives—and perhaps even more interesting, the disparities within the objectives according to sex, educational attainment and disability status—are tracked by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics. We can search the CDC’s database by topic area for additional data on health care disparities. While the government works toward the Healthy People initiative, we can help improve health care access for those with communication disorders in our communities. I started by considering people’s social determinants of health in my community an...

We describe the overall safety and tolerability profiles based on a literature review of all published phase I and II clinical trials in this setting. Drug exposure, tumour mutational status and metastases resectability are discussed. A review of pubmed and abstracts of major oncology congresses from 2009 to 2018, with MeSH and full-text search terms for clinical trials of anti-EGFR for "metastatic" or "advanced" "colorectal cancer/adenocarcinoma" was implemented. Only English language publications were included. Expert opinion: Efficacy data from phase II trials are promising, but the safety ...

Abstract The development of cost-effective methods for early detection and identification of prognostic markers still remains a significant challenge to improve diagnosis and reduce the mortality of cancer. Herein, on the basis of rolling circle amplification (RCA) coupled with nicking endonuclease-assisted signal amplification (NESA), a simple, sensitive and portable biosensor was developed for the determination of p53 DNA by using the personal glucose meter (PGM) as readout. Initially, biotin-modified hairpin probe (HP) was immobilized onto streptavidin-coated magnetic beads (MBs). The target DNA hybridized with...

More than half of the people in the world host colonies of a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori in their stomachs.Although it ’s harmless to many, H. pylori can cause stomach cancer as well as ulcers and other gastric conditions. Doctors tend to prescribe multiple antibiotics to defeat the microbe, but that strategy can lead to antibiotic-resistant superbugs.Now, afinding by UCLA scientists may lead to a better approach. The researchers have determined the molecular structure of a protein that enables H. pylori to stay alive in the stomach, and elucidated the mechanism by which that protein works.Z. Hong Zhou, the ...

Conclusion This qualitative analysis aimed to determine the accuracy of health information circulated by the alcohol industry on the links between alcohol and cancer. It found the industry and affiliated organisations use three main approaches: denial of the link between alcohol and cancer misinterpretation of the risk distraction by focusing on other risk factors This analysis highlights how these strategies could be detrimental to public health. Of course, it's possible, given this data was collected in 2016, that some of the websites and documents analysed by the researchers have since been updated. Regardless, the...
