Authors: Wang Y, Chen Y, Chen X, Liang Y, Yang D, Dong J, Yang N, Liang Z Abstract Angelicin is an active compound isolated from the Chinese herb Angelica archangelica, which has been reported to exert antitumor effects by inhibiting malignant behaviors in several types of tumor, including proliferation, colony formation, migration and invasion. However, the effects of angelicin on human cervical cancer cells is yet to be elucidated. The present study evaluated the antitumor effects of angelicin on cervical cancer cells. The results demonstrated that cervical cancer cells were more sensitive to angelicin than cervi...

CONCLUSIONS TOS can be evaluated by CE-MRA, T2-STIR-SPACE, and VIBE during a single examination, with a reduced contrast material dose. This imaging modality performs well in showing the anatomical structure of the neurovascular bundle and the cause of the compression. PMID: 31600179 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 9 October 2019Source: Inorganica Chimica ActaAuthor(s): Johannes Karges, Gilles GasserAbstractPhotodynamic therapy (PDT) has received increasing attention over the recent years to treat a variety of cancers. The use of metal complexes as PDT agents is currently a highly investigated alternative due to the attractive chemical and photophysical properties of these compounds. However, most of the metal complexes studied so far are based on rare metals, limiting their use since these metals are neither cheap nor abundant. It would be therefore of high interest to develop compounds based on a ...

This article evaluates access to the Papanicolaou test in the Family Health Strategy (FHS) in municipalities in a health region. Cervical cancer control depends on a well-organized Family Health Strategy, so assessment of access to the Papanicolaou test reflects the quality of care at this level. This is a qualitative study with data produced in 10 focus groups, totaling 70 participants in four municipalities. We analyzed the organizational, symbolic, and technical dimensions of access to the Pap test, with cervical cancer control as the marker. The results indicate that living in rural areas was a barrier to access to the...

Conclusion: Laparoendoscopic single-site surgery may be a feasible and safe technique for staging early-stage ovarian/tubal cancer. This approach has some advantages included providing easier access to the upper abdominal regions when performing high-level infrarenal para-aortic lymphadenectomy; the 2-cm elastic incision favors fast specimen extraction and colpotomy are avoided. However, the long-term oncologic outcomes need to be further investigated. PMID: 31595144 [PubMed - in process]

We report two young men who presented with submental nodal metastasis from PCT. Both underwent total thyroidectomy with central compartment neck dissection and modified radical neck dissection (MRND). Probable factors which might influence submental nodal metastasis are analyzed. We conclude that physicians should be aware of the possibility of submental nodal metastasis from PCT. A selective approach for neck dissection can be an alternative to MRND, reducing the morbidity in management of such cases.
