ConclusionThe imaging features of TNBCs differ by AR status. Multimodality breast imaging may help identify the LAR subtype of TNBC, which has been shown to be a subtype that is relatively resistant to neoadjuvant chemotherapy.Graphical abstract
Preparation, optimization of the inclusion complex of glaucocalyxin A with sulfobutylether-β-cyclodextrin and antitumor study. Drug Deliv. 2019 Dec;26(1):309-317 Authors: Ren L, Wang J, Chen G Abstract Glaucocalyxin A (GLA), is a diterpenoid extracted from Hara and has been studied for decades for its diverse bioactivities. However, GLA presents poor solubility in water and low bioavailability through oral administration which has hindered its application in the clinic. So in this study, we prepared the inclusion complex of GLA in SBE-β-CD by ultrasound method and evaluated its antitumor effe...

SaraivaAbstractBackgroundPotatoes are important tubers for human consumption, providing an essential source of energy and great nutritional characteristics for human health. However, before consumption, potato tubers need to be stored and processed. As frying is the most common technique used in potato processing, fried potato is the most important processed potato product. Some food characteristics, provided by the fryi...
Authors: Ravaioli F, Colecchia A, Alemanni LV, Vestito A, Dajti E, Marasco G, Sessa M, Pession A, Bonifazi F, Festi D Abstract INTRODUCTION: Veno-occlusive-disease (VOD), known also as sinusoidal-obstruction-syndrome (SOS), is one of the main complications of haematopoietic stem cell transplantation and is related to the treatment with pyrrolizidine alkaloids or other toxic agents (chemotherapy for liver-metastasis). Clinical diagnosis using the recent criteria from the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation, is the reference for VOD/SOS diagnosis. However, increasing evidence suggests the emerg...
ConclusionsMesh augmentation was not superior to native tissue posterior colporrhaphy, and both were only moderately effective in eliminating a true rectocele and symptoms of obstructed defecation 5 years after reconstructive surgery.
ConclusionThe PSV may be a marker for maternal –fetal CMV transmission following a first-trimester maternal infection.
(MedPage Today) -- Challenges widespread use of ultrasound for dense breasts
ConclusionsCDT seems to have similar outcomes with ST in the management of acute PE, although larger, more homogenous data are needed. In our experience, ST should be viewed as a complementary alternative for patients with contraindication for thrombolytics or severely compromised hemodynamic profile and can yield good outcomes in an otherwise highly morbid population.
ConclusionIOUS decreases excision of healthy breast tissue while increasing negative margin rates compared to WL. IOUS can be easily implemented; 11 cases are enough to acquire skills for performing the technique. Savings can be up to 900€ per surgery.
