Michael Dixon, Laszlo RomicsAbstractIntroductionThe role of oncoplastic breast conservation (OBC) surgery is not fully defined in terms of whether it is equivalent to standard breast conservation (SBC), or more an alternative to mastectomy, or whether it occupies its own niche somewhere between the two. Therefore, we have carried out a population-based prospective audit of the current OBC practice in Scotland.MethodsAll patients diagnose...

CONCLUSION: The dearth of information on FIO and low index of suspicion may lead to delayed or missed diagnoses and management. The fundamental skeletal defect appears to be an abnormality in organic matrix of bone characterized by defective mineralization of the abnormal collagen. Research focused on the identification of pathogenetic factors is needed. Albeit, long-term outcomes of growth hormone therapy are yet to be ascertained, short-term effectiveness appears promising.

Authors: Mokaberinejad R, Rampisheh Z, Aliasl J, Akhtari E Abstract Oligomenorrhoea treatment with hormone therapy and Metformin is not usually well tolerated and is associated with a broad range of side effects. In Persian medicine, the management of oligomenorrhoea can be done with fennel and dry cupping. A clinical trial was conducted on 61 patients with oligomenorrhoea. The patients randomly received treatment for 6 months in two groups: fennel infusion plus dry cupping (Group A); versus treatment with Metformin (Group B). On the days between the two periods, the patients' BMI, pain levels and side effec...

Abstract Prostate cancer is the second most common cause of cancer-related death in men. Although the overall survival of patients with metastatic prostate cancer has improved with the addition of second-generation hormone therapy, most men will develop progressive disease, eventually leading to death. Novel therapeutic mechanisms are needed to improve treatments and outcomes in patients with metastatic prostate cancer. Biomarker-driven treatments such as targeted therapies and immuno-oncologic agents are currently under investigation, and may lead to less toxicity and better outcomes for these patients. Here, we ...

In medical research, many different study designs can advance our understanding of disease diagnosis, prognosis and treatment. However, as indicated by the evidence-based medicine principles, study designs are classified according to their strength to provide recommendations and to guide health policy-makers. The use of national registers to obtain epidemiological information has gained popularity, particularly in those areas of the World where these instruments are effective and allow thorough analyses.

Hernández-Fernández C Abstract INTRODUCTION: In patients with high-risk localized prostate cancer (HRPCa), multimodal treatment plays a fundamental role. OBJECTIVE: To compare relapse-free survival (RFS) in patients with HRPCa, treated primarily with radiotherapy (RT)+hormone therapy (HT) versus radical prostatectomy (RP) and salvage RT (sRT)±HT when biochemical recurrence (BCR) appears. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective analysis of 226 patients with HRPCa (1996-2008), treated primarily with RT+HT (n=137) or RP (n=89). The Kaplan-Meier method has been used to evaluate survival and ...
