Side effects of chemotherapy for testicular cancers and post-cancer follow-up.

[Side effects of chemotherapy for testicular cancers and post-cancer follow-up]. Bull Cancer. 2019 Jun 03;: Authors: Joly F, Ahmed-Lecheheb D, Thiery-Vuillemin A, Orillard E, Coquan E Abstract Testicular cancers are the most frequent and the most curable cancers in young men. Treatments of these cancers represent a great success with cure rate over to 95 %. However, chemotherapy side effects may occur during or after several years post-treatment. This review aimed to highlight complications and physical and psychological side effects occurring mainly after chemotherapy treatment for testicular cancer, and to propose a personalized post-cancer plan specific for patients treated for testicular cancer. Treatments of these cancers can cause short-term complications (asthenia, nausea, vomiting, alopecia..). These side effects disappear within a few months after the end of the treatments. Late complications may occur several years post-treatment. Cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome and secondary neoplasia represent the most severe late effects among patients treated for testicular cancer. Given the increased incidence of these chemotherapy-induced side effects, it is indispensable to establish a specific follow up which must include a particular vigilance on the risk of occurrence of second cancer, a follow-up of the cardio-vascular risk factors, pulmonary and auditory follow-up, and early detection of psychosocial disorders.

Goodman, Balaji Narasimhan, Aliasger K. SalemAbstractThe primary objective of this study was to enhance the antitumor efficacy of a model cancer vaccine through co-delivery of pentaerythritol lipid A (PELA), an immunological adjuvant, and a model tumor antigen, ovalbumin (OVA), separately loaded into polyanhydride particles (PA). In vitro experiments showed that encapsulation of PELA into PA (PA-PELA) significantly enhanced its stimulatory capacity on...

Authors: Mian A, Singal AK, Bakhshi S, Sood R, Vikram NK, Ray A Abstract A 21-year old female, recently diagnosed with osteosarcoma of right humerus, presented to the emergency with history of fever, productive cough, chest pain and progressive respiratory distress for six days. Initial investigations suggested pneumonia but she did not respond to parenteral antibiotics. CT pulmonary angiogram revealed bilateral pulmonary artery embolism. Thrombolysis was performed using alteplase, which failed to improve the clinical condition. In view of underlying malignancy, a possibility of tumour-embolism was considered and s...

Authors: Fatima J, Gupta N, Karoli R, Chandra A, Jagirdaar S, Arora R, Pandey N Abstract Introduction: Visceral abdominal Fat, not Subcutaneous Abdominal Fat better correlates with insulin resistance. Hence the present study was undertaken to study the association of sonographically assessed visceral and subcutaneous abdominal fat with insulin resistance in patients with pre-diabetes. Material and Methods: It was a hospital based cross sectional study done in prediabetes subjects. All the subjects were called fasting overnight and were given a structured questionnaire designed by investigator. Fasting and postp...

In that context, we present a non-enzymatic optical fiber-based sensor that makes use of plasmon-assisted tilted fiber Bragg gratings (TFBGs) functionalized for D-glucose biosensing through polydopamine (PDA)-i...

HammudAbstractPalladium(II) complex [Pd(HL)Cl] (1) (H2L = 2-PhS(C6H4)NH-NC=(COCH3)–NHC6H5) has been synthesized by reacting K2PdCl4 with H2L. The pincer H2L ligand is coordinated to a Pd(II) in an anionic 5π electron form via k3 –SNN to produce neutral 1-trans and 1-cis isomers in the solid state. The structures of two isomers (1-trans and 1-cis) were determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. Furthermore, complex 1 has been characte...
