Comparison of impact of target delineation of computed tomography- and magnetic resonance imaging-guided brachytherapy on dose distribution in cervical cancer.
Conclusions: A combination of MRI and CT is a safe alternative approach for cervical cancer HDR brachytherapy. The technique provides comparable dosimetric outcomes to MRI-based planning, while being more cost-effective. PMID: 30479618 [PubMed]
CONCLUSION: The lifetime attributable risk of cancer incidence and mortality due to radiation exposure is not trivial. Therefore efforts should be made to reduce patient doses while maintaining image quality. PMID: 32871427 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]
CONCLUSION: LncRNA CASC15 has the potential to become a new therapeutic target or marker for a variety of tumors. PMID: 32962611 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractObjectivesTetrandrine, a natural bisbenzylisoquinoline alkaloid, possesses promising anticancer activities on diverse tumours. This review provides systematically organized information on cancers of tetrandrinein vivo andin vitro, discuss the related molecular mechanisms and put forward some new insights for the future investigations.Key findingsAnticancer activities of tetrandrine have been reported comprehensively, including lung cancer, colon cancer, bladder cancer, prostate cancer, ovarian cancer, gastric cancer, breast cancer, pancreatic cancer, cervical cancer and liver cancer. The potential molecular mechani...
In this report, a group of experts of the Spanish Society of Medical Oncology (SEOM), the Spanish Society of Medical Radiology (SERAM), and Spanish Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SEMNIM) provide an up-to-date review and a consensus guide on these issues.

CONCLUSION: We found that 1-in-11 cancer survivors developed a SPC. Given the increasing number of cancer survivors and the importance of SPC as a cause of cancer death, there is a need for increased screening for and prevention of SPC. PMID: 32356175 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]
Conclusions: Most cancers may be insensitive to social development. Internal factors, including aging, may be a key factor for the occurrence of cancer. PMID: 32462031 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: The first results of treatment with the Axxent eBT device are promising, as no recurrences have been observed and toxicity is very low. eBT is a good alternative for treating cervical cancer in centers without access to conventional HDR.
