Alcohol Plays A Huge Role In Cancer Deaths In The U.S.

We have known for years that sun exposure can lead to skin cancer and smoking can lead to lung cancer. Now a new report reveals that drinking alcohol is responsible for 3.5 percent of all cancer deaths in the U.S. The findings, published in the American Journal of Public Health, outline the cancer risks linked to alcohol use.

In this study, the effect of soluble polysaccharides (SPs) produced during rice straw saccharification on the formation of extracellular matrices (EMs) by the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae was investigated. SPs were characterized by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR). SPs reduced the inhibition of alcohol dehydrogenase activity by phenolic acids (PAs) and regulated the intracellular redox state, resulting in higher ethanol production. The results of flow cytometry, confocal laser scanning microscopy, and atomic force microscopy indicated that PAs changed micro...

Objective: Although the prognostic significance of systematic inflammation-based scores, such as the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), the platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR), and the prognostic nutritional index (PNI), have been explored in pancreatic cancers, few reports have investigated the lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR). We aimed to retrospectively investigate the prognostic value of the preoperative LMR in patients with resectable pancreatic head cancer (PHC). Methods: From 2005 to 2016, 165 patients underwent pancreatoduodenectomy for PHC. All samples of peripheral blood were collected within two weeks prior ...

We present a case of a 19-month infant who was taken to the Emergency Department due to fever and a gingival lesion that did not respond to antibiotic treatment. An ultrasound study was requested to assess the presence of an abscess. However, a lesion was identified and after performing a biopsy, pathologist found it was a myeloid sarcoma. The patient was diagnosed with AML and chemotherapy treatment was started. After three cycles of treatment, the patient is currently free of disease.
