The objective of this article is to document whether DIRT can accurately map the position of the perforators and measure their influence on the perfusion of the flap in order to select the best perforators to improve the outcome of breast reconstructions with free DIEP flaps. A systematic review of the literature published between January 1998 and November 23th 2018 was conducted regarding the possible benefit of dynamic infrared thermography (DIRT) in DIEP-flap breast reconstructions.The databases PubMed and Web of Science were used to search for qualified articles. Inclusion criteria were women who underwent a breast rec...

Authors: Wadasadawala T, Sinha S, Verma S, Parmar V, Kannan S, Pathak R, Sarin R, Gaikar M Abstract Purpose: We evaluated agreement between subjective and objective methods of cosmesis scoring in an accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) cohort. Material and methods: Consecutive women treated with APBI using interstitial brachytherapy reported for clinical follow-up every 6 months. Single cross-sectional assessment of the breast cosmesis was done by a radiation oncologist (subjective method) using Harvard scale and by photographic assessment using BCCT.core (Breast Cancer Conservative Treatment. Cosmetic...

Emetine exhibits anticancer activity in breast cancer cells as an antagonist of Wnt/β‑catenin signaling. Oncol Rep. 2019 Aug 22;: Authors: Sun Q, Fu Q, Li S, Li J, Liu S, Wang Z, Su Z, Song J, Lu D Abstract Emetine, an amoebicidal drug, exerts potent anticancer activity against various solid tumors, however, the underlying molecular mechanism remains unclear. In the present study, the effects of emetine were investigated on various proteins involved in the Wnt/β‑catenin signaling pathway, which has been linked to various human cancers. It was revealed that emetine blocked Wnt/β‑cat...

Medical device companies attempting to market a new treatment in the U.S. often make the erroneous assumption that winning FDA approval is the final destination, and success is theirs. In fact, going through the regulatory process is only the halfway point. The grueling path from FDA approval to reimbursement is like a treacherous walk through Death Valley and many companies don’t make it through. In this case study, I discuss the trials and triumphs of bringing robotic high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), a non-invasive procedure for localized prostate cancer, to the U.S.&Aci...

Contributors : Luis Arturo Baiza Gutman ; Araceli Rub í Vietma RodriguezSeries Type : Expression profiling by arrayOrganism : Homo sapiensDiabetes and breast cancer are common diseases with a major impact on the health sector in Mexico and worldwide. Epidemiological and experimental works support the link between type 2 diabetes and breast cancer; these data support that insulin resistance, hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia, and elevated levels of IGF-1 in patients with type II diabetes mellitus promote growth and invasiveness of tumor cells. The aim of the present work was to determine, by microarray, the mechanisms ...

El SayedAbstractEpidemiological studies have compellingly documented the ability of the Mediterranean diet rich in extra-virgin olive oil to reduce the incidence of certain malignancies, and cardiovascular diseases, and slow the Alzheimer’s disease progression. S-(-)-Oleocanthal (OC) was identified as the most bioactive olive oil phenolic with documented anti-inflammatory, anticancer, and anti-Alzheimer’s activities. OC consumption causes irritating se...
