SaberAbstractUntargeted metabolomics was used in this study to discriminate the phenolic fingerprints of six Syzygium species. This approach resulted in the annotation of 441 compounds that belong to different phenolic classes, such as flavonoids, lignans, stilbenes, tyrosols, alkylphenols, and phenolic acids. Multivariate data analysis unraveled the main differences between the studied species. S. paniculatum and S. aqueum were the richest sources in terms of phenolic...

This study involved 39 women diagnosed with breast cancer who were aged 69 years or older, receiving any type of treatment, and seeking an initial assessment in a geriatric oncology program at a large cancer center in the midwestern United States and their caregivers. METHODS & VARIABLES: This cross-sectional study evaluated relationships among the variables of caregiver strain, age, employment status, patient characteristics, and patient scores on the comprehensive geriatric assessment. Bivariate statistics and logistic regression models were used. RESULTS: Increasing age of the caregiver was associated with...

Abstract PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION: Many breast cancer survivors fail to engage in surveillance mammography to detect new and recurrent cancers. This review identifies factors promoting or inhibiting breast cancer survivors' participation in recommended surveillance mammography. LITERATURE SEARCH: This integrative review included all English-language studies published from 2000 to 2017, identified in CINAHL®, PsycINFO®, Embase®, and MEDLINE® via PubMed®. DATA EVALUATION: 23 studies met the inclusion criteria and were analyzed and synthesized. SYNTHESIS: 19 factors influencing mammog...

Abstract OBJECTIVES: To determine if patients and providers perceived improved care processes through the delivery of personalized, electronic care plans (CPs) generated from the Carevive Care Planning System™. SAMPLE & SETTING: 121 women (51 with gynecologic cancer from Billings Clinic and 70 with breast cancer from Moffit Cancer Center) completed electronic patient-reported outcome assessments and were given electronically generated, personalized supportive CPs tailored to individual symptoms and local healthcare resources. METHODS & VARIABLES: Quantitative instruments evaluated feasibili...

Patients who are diagnosed with a 2 percent chance of developing breast cancer are less likely to return for the recommended 6-month scan if they have high out-of-pocket expenses, says a new  studypublished in theJournal of the American College of Radiology. Researchers from Johns Hopkins ’s Department of Radiology studied records of more than 190 women who were given the BI-RADS category 3 assessment between February 1, 2011 and June 30, 2017. They found that 57 percent went to their scheduled follow-up MRI within 10 months, 18 percent received the examination slightly after 10 mo nths, and 24 percent (or ...

Authors: Yuan S, Luan X, Han G, Guo K, Wang S, Zhang X Abstract It is well established that long intergenic non-protein coding RNA 1638 (LINC01638) promotes the development and progression of breast cancer, whereas its roles in other human diseases are currently unknown. In the present study, expression of LINC01638 and ROCK2 was analyzed using quantitative PCR, ELISA and western blot. Receiver operating characteristic curve was used for diagnostic analysis. Cell transfections were performed to analyze interactions between LINC01638 and ROCK2, while Transwell assays were performed to analyze invasion and migration ...

We have previously demonstrated the pivotal role of Jnk-mediated Irf-3/c-Jun in regulating nuclear factor kappa-Β ligand (RANKL)-induced osteoclastogenesis. Here, we demonstrated that proanthocyanidins (PACs) target Irf-3 to alleviate breast cancer-induced activation of osteoclasts. We also found that PACs induced apoptosis of osteoclast precursors by upregulating the ratio of bax/bcl-2 and activating caspase-3 activity. Such bone protective effect also could be observed in a bone metastasis model of breast cancer. These findings provided a novel therapeutic intervention targeting abnormal bone metabolism to alleviate...

Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) has very poor prognosis and no efficacious therapeutic options due to the absence of a validated molecular target. Therefore, novel therapeutic strategies against TNBC are urgently needed. Our team synthesized and screened a series of compounds derived from Rhein, of which 4F was selected for further analysis based on its ability to produce the vacuolated appearance of cells. Using Cell counting kit-8 assay, colony-formation assay, cell apoptosis and cell cycle assay, we compared the antitumor effects of 4F, Rhein and Cisplatin on a TNBC cell line MDA-MB-231 in vitro. The vacuoles in MD...
