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.

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: Women with deep invasive endometriosis who underwent IVF do not seem to be exposed to a substantially increased risk of recurrence/disease progression. Larger evidence from independent groups is however required for a definitive conclusion. PMID: 31517304 [PubMed]

Conclusions: A wide variety of analgesia protocols are used. The three most frequently used are i.v. administered opioids, i.m. administered opioids, and non-sedative oral analgesics. The variety of analgesia protocols is not desirable in the context of good clinical practice, and considering the risks of combining opioids and benzodiazepines. Monitoring of vital functions was only performed after administration of i.v. medication. A comparison of the pain scores could be a first step in finding the optimal method of analgesia, thereby forming the basis of guidelines for analgesia during oocyte retrieval.

Abstract Two highly selective OFF-ON isomer fluorescent probes (1 and 2) for homo-/cysteine were designed and synthesized. The pyrene modified tetraphenylethylene derivative with AIE was used as luminescent group while maleimide was used as recognition group. These two isomer probes were found to be nearly nonfluorescent when treated with GSH. However, upon interaction with Cys or Hcy, the fluorescence was enhanced by 2000 folds in a wide pH range from 3 to 10. Experimental results and DFT calculation have demonstrated that the fluorescence OFF-ON switch of such thiol probes is resulted from the termination of the...
