This study aimed to assess physical function and HRQOL of MPM patients following pleurectomy/decortication (P/D) in the convalescent phase.MethodsThe study included 16 male MPM patients who underwent P/D between September 2014 and August 2016. Physical function was assessed based on handgrip and knee extensor strengths, the six-minute walk distance (6MWD), and pulmonary function, including forced vital capacity (FVC) and forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1). HRQOL was assessed using the Medical Outcome Study 36-item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36). The assessment was performed preoperatively, postoperatively, and...

Publication date: February 2020Source: Materials Science and Engineering: C, Volume 107Author(s): Mehak Passi, Vinay Kumar, Gopinath PackirisamyAbstractMultifunctional nanomaterials integrating therapeutic and imaging modalities in one platform have opened a new era in the present therapeutic strategies. In the present study, a multifunctional silk fibroin-based carrier has been designed for the delivery of antioxidant and imaging agents. One-step desolvation method was used to prepare sulforaphane (antioxidant drug) loaded silk fibroin nanoparticles (SFSNPs). These anionic SFSNPs were further coupled with cationic cerium ...

We present a step-by-step computational protocol for functional gene expression analysis and the identification of diagnostic and prognostic signatures by combining meta-analysis with machine learning and survival analysis. The novelty of the toolbox lies in its all-in-one functionality, generic design, and modularity. It is exemplified for lung cancer, including a comprehensive evaluation using different validation strategies. However, the protocol is not restricted to specific disease types and can therefore be used by a broad community. The accompanying R package vignette runs in ~1 h and describes the workflow in detai...

les Ricordel Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has been the leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide, over the last few decades. Survival remains extremely poor in the metastatic setting and, consequently, innovative therapeutic strategies are urgently needed. Inhibitor of Growth Gene 2 (ING2) is a core component of the mSin3A/Histone deacetylases complex (HDAC), which controls the chromatin acetylation status and modulates gene transcription. This gene has been characterized as a tumor suppressor gene and its status in cancer has been scarcely explored. In this review, we focused on ING2 and other mSin3A/HDAC ...
