Successful in vitro fertilization pregnancy and delivery after a fertility-sparing laparoscopic operation in a patient with a papillary thyroid carcinoma arising from a mature cystic teratoma.
We describe a case of successful in vitro fertilization pregnancy and delivery after a fertility-sparing laparoscopic operation in a patient with papillary thyroid carcinoma arising from a mature cystic teratoma. PMID: 31401818 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

However, the clinical use of zinc(II) complexes is hampered by hydrolytic insolubility and poor bioavailability and their anticancer mechanisms remain unclear. Here, we investigated the efficacy and mechanism of action of a polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP-k30)-based solid dispersion of Zn(II)-curc...
ConclusionsBoth 18F-HX4 and 18F-FMISO PET/CT can be used as biomarkers for tumor hypoxia and radiotherapy-associated changes. The clinical utilization of these two PET tracers needs to be further validated.
HPV DNA detection in urine samples of women: "An efficacious and accurate alternative to cervical samples?" Expert Rev Anti Infect Ther. 2019 Sep 13;: Authors: Pattyn J, Van Keer S, Téblick L, Van Damme P, Vorsters A Abstract Cervical cancers are caused by persistent human papillomavirus (HPV) infections . To date, HPV DNA testing using clinician-obtained cervical cells is the reference for identifying cervical infection. However, great interest has been shown for the use of self-sampling methods to detect HPV . One method for self-sampling to be considered is the collection of f...
ConclusionsPRDR radiation therapy with capecitabine were well tolerated and effective method for treating patients with recurrent breast cancer. Prospective studies are necessary to compare side effects and efficacy with conventional dose rate re-irradiation, as well as, to evaluate the potential role for capecitabine in the recurrent setting.
ConclusionActual body weight and bone marrow involvement may be utilized as potential predictive indicators of R-IRRs. Further study is needed to validate these indicators and determine appropriate utilization in practice.
Conclusion: Specific contexts appeared to be associated with problematic drinking for both sexes. Among both men and women, "social drinking" was associated with problematic drinking. Both "home drinking" (men) and "daytime drinking" (women) contexts, were associated with problematic drinking and depressive symptoms. Targeted alcohol-focused interventions need to address co-occurring mental health issues. PMID: 31519127 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions: The incidence of omental metastasis is not low in patients with USC. Visual assessment and omental biopsy may be insufficient for recognizing occult metastases. Omentectomy should be part of the staging surgery in USC patients because it provides additional information about survival. Prospective studies are needed to confirm these results.

Conclusions: Young women with stage I EC undergoing FSS showed a relatively satisfactory prognosis, equal to those receiving CRC. PMID: 31517302 [PubMed]
Conclusions: Reduced expression of ER stress markers in trophoblast cells against increased VEGF highlighted a new window to explore prospective drugs that can be designed to modulate the activities of various ER stress sensors in order to alleviate ER stress in pregnant women with preeclampsia.

Abstract Objective: The aims of this study were to determine the prevalence of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in women treated for infertility and oocyte donors, and to investigate the possible influence of HPV infection on reproductive outcomes. Study design: In this observational laboratory-based study, cervical swabs were collected from oocyte donors (n = 207), and women treated for infertility (n = 945) and analysed for the presence of high-risk HPV (hrHPV) genotypes using the cobas® 4800 HPV Test and PapilloCheck® HPV-Screening. Associations between hrHPV positiv...
