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...

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 [1]. 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 [2]. 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.

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.

CONCLUSION: The results of this research showed that significant decreases in haematological changesoccurred, including leukopenia and anemia, in an animal model of OSCC induced by 4-NQO following use of n-Doxwith compare to Dox. Use of n-Dox is better than of Dox for treatment of OSCC. PMID: 31350953 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsColonic metastasis from esophageal SCC is rare, and associated with poor prognosis. There are no definite features in terms of location, histological differentiation etc. that contribute to colonic metastasis from primary esophageal SCC. The goal of treatment is palliative and data from our and other case reports support the use of chemotherapy and radiation for symptom improvement and disease control.

Adenosquamous carcinoma is a rare colorectal tumor with few cases described in the literature; no children have been reported. A 12-year-old-girl presented tenesmus, diarrhea, and iron deficiency anemia. Intestinal bowel disease was suspected, colonoscopy and biopsy were performed and the diagnosis was a squamous cell carcinoma. Chemoradiation therapy based on last colorectal cancer guidelines was started. Complete regression of the primary tumor was observed with lymph node progression. The pathology report of the lymphadenectomy revealed metastasis of adenosquamous carcinoma, although there was not any adenomatous compon...

Conclusion Concomitant chemoradiotherapy of 5-fluorouracil and cisplatin with radiotherapy is a highly effective and well-tolerated treatment of anal cancer. But further studies with larger number of patients are needed to support the indication to treat anal cancer using this regimen.
