ElshemeyAbstractAimsConventional radiotherapy is mainly restricted by the low radiation absorption efficiency of tumors tissues and the hypoxic tumor cells radio-resistance. In this paper, novel nano-radiosensitizers, magnetic nanoparticles core coated with silica, were successfully prepared to overcome these limitations.Main methodsThe prepared nanoparticles have been characterized by transmission electron microscope (TEM), Dynamic light scattering (DLS), atomic force microscope (AFM) and vib...

Waseem Akram, Fazal Raziq, Muhammad Fakhar-e-Alam, Muhammad Hammad Aziz, K.S. Alimgeer, M. Atif, M. Amir, Atif Hanif, W. Aslam FarooqAbstractAu-TiO2 nanoparticles conjugated with doxorubicin (DOX) were synthesized for new photodynamic therapy (PDT) plans and for comprehensive and reliable treatment of breast cancer-related acute diseases. The anatase/rutile phase junction effect combined with plasmonic resonance is amplified in Au- TiO2 conjugated with DOX, leading to a synergistic response of PDT. ...

In this study, the inhibitory effects of APINACA on eight major human cytochrome P450s (CYPs) and six uridine 5′-diphospho-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs) in human liver microsomes, as well as on the transport activities of six solute carrier transporters and two efflux transporters in transporter-overexpressed cells, were investigated. APINACA exhibited time-dependent inhibition of CYP3A4-mediated midazolam 1′-hydroxylation (Ki, 4.5 µM; kinact, 0.04686 min−1) and noncompetitive inhibition of UGT1A9-mediated mycophenolic acid glucuronidation (Ki, 5.9 µM). APINACA did not si...

ConclusionsWhile urban –rural differences in breast cancer screening are small, they can translate into tens of thousands of rural women not receiving mammograms. Hence, there is a need to continue screening initiatives in these areas to reduce the number of breast cancer deaths.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewFollowing partial mastectomy, whole-breast irradiation (WBI), delivered over 3 to 6  weeks, has been the standard adjuvant radiation approach for early-stage breast cancer. A growing body of literature over the past decade has suggested that irradiation of the partial breast, including the tumor bed plus a margin, may be a suitable alternative for appropriately selected patients. The use of partial breast irradiation (PBI) has been studied in multiple prospective randomized trials, now with up to 10 years of follow-up, establishing similar safety and efficacy compared with WBI. Advantages...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewAs medical knowledge and innovation reaches new heights, there is a growing gap in medical advancements between low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and high-income countries (HICs). The former has lack of basic health care and preventive or diagnostic services for early cancer while the latter has access to novel diagnostic and therapeutic modalities.Recent FindingsKey to overcoming this disparity is finding ways to bridge this divide across distances and continental divides through innovative technology and sharing of knowledge by committed individuals and through public private partnerships....

opoulos The progression of breast cancer and its association with clinical outcome and treatment remain largely unexplored. Accumulating data has highlighted the interaction between cells of the immune system and the tumor microenvironment in cancer progression, and although studies have identified multiple facets of cancer progression within the development of the tumor microenvironment (TME) and its constituents, there is lack of research into the associations between breast cancer subtype and staging. Current literature has provided insight into the cells and pathways associated with breast cancer progression throug...
