The Relations between Acculturation and Creativity and Innovation in Higher Education: A Systematic Literature Review
Publication date: Available online 30 July 2019Source: Educational Research ReviewAuthor(s): Rukhsar SharifAbstractThis systematic literature review focuses on research findings from 20 peer-reviewed studies on the relations between the constructs of acculturation and creativity as well as acculturation and innovation in higher education. The overall research findings suggested a primarily causal relation between acculturation and creativity through statistical modeling. However, acculturation was also found to be correlated with and predict creativity. Moreover, attributes of acculturation discovered to engender creativity included multicultural learning experiences, individualistic culture type, homogeneous cultural dyads and the acculturation strategy of biculturalism. In contrast to its well-founded relation with creativity, acculturation was tentatively found to be a positive and significant predictor of innovation. This review highlights the strength of acculturation aspects, particularly biculturalism and the integration of contrasting cultural ideas, in influencing the ability to be creative or innovative in postsecondary environments.
CONCLUSION: With the increased use of immunotherapeutic agents, increased awareness and early recognition are required for effective management of irAEs. Our experience as a single institution might be of use for health care providers in oncology. PMID: 32935638 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Wan S, Zhao H Abstract The present study aimed to explore the diagnostic and prognostic value of lncRNA maternally expressed 3 (MEG3) in cervical cancer. Eighty-four patients with cervical cancer from February 2013 to March 2014 were enrolled in the observation group (OG), and another 58 female subjects who underwent physical examination at Huangshi Central Hospital were enrolled as the control group (CG). The serum MEG3 expression of patients in the two groups was detected by RT-qPCR, and the ability of MEG3 to aid in the diagnosis of cervical cancer, lymph node metastasis and FIGO staging, as well as to ...
In conclusion, SLC17A9 can be used as a new molecular marker to predict the poor prognosis of patients with HCC. PMID: 32934749 [PubMed]
In conclusion, the present study revealed that linalool inhibits T-ALL cell survival with involvement of the MAPK signaling pathway. JNK activation and ERK inhibition may play a functional role in apoptosis induction of T-ALL cells. Linalool may be developed as a novel anti T-ALL agent. PMID: 32934748 [PubMed]
In conclusion, psychological stress was more prominent in younger patients with stage IV breast cancer treated with hormonal therapy compared with elderly patients. Importantly, improving QOL within the 3 months after treatment initiation could lead to longer PFS rate. PMID: 32934747 [PubMed]
Authors: Verma A, Najahi-Missaoui W, Cummings BS, Somanath PR Abstract Metastatic prostate cancer (PCa) has a very high mortality rate in men, in Western countries and lacks reliable treatment. The advanced-stage PCa cells overexpress P21 (RAC1) activated kinase-1 (PAK1) and secreted phospholipase A2 (sPLA2) suggesting the potential utility of pharmacologically targeting these molecules to treat metastatic PCa. The small molecule, inhibitor targeting PAK1 activation-3 (IPA3) is a highly specific allosteric inhibitor of PAK1; however, it is metabolically unstable once in the plasma thus, limiting its utility as a ch...
Antitumor effects of ribavirin in combination with TMZ and IFN-β in malignant glioma cells. Oncol Lett. 2020 Nov;20(5):178 Authors: Ochiai Y, Sumi K, Sano E, Yoshimura S, Yamamuro S, Ogino A, Ueda T, Suzuki Y, Nakayama T, Hara H, Katayama Y, Yoshino A Abstract The prognosis of gioblastoma, the standard chemotherapy agent for which is temozolomide (TMZ), remains poor despite recent advances in multimodal treatments. Therefore, it is necessary to identify and develop novel therapeutics for this malignant disease. Ribavirin, an anti-viral agent which is one of the standard agents for treatment of chr...
