Ammar, Aliaa Adel, Aya Khalil, Hoda Walid, Kirullos Eskander, Mohamed Hamdy, Nada Reda, Nour Elhoda Mohsen, Ghada M. Al-Toukhy, Mohamed Tarek Mansour, Mohamed M. ElmazarAbstractTreatment of breast cancer by paclitaxel (PAX) often encounters therapeutic failure most likely caused by innate/acquired resistance. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) and multidrug resistance complex (MDR-1 or P-glycoprotein) overexpression are main mechanisms implicated in chemoresistance. Increased aldehyde dehro...

CONCLUSION: Patients' qualitative feedback highlighted the potential feasibility and adaptability of the program for this population. The results of this preliminary study show promising avenues for research in the field of cancer patients' adaptive coping enhancement as well as reduce anxiety and depression symptoms. This type of workshop can be considered as complementary to individual psychotherapies as they may tap into different mechanisms that help foster psychological flexibility as the group format enhances decentering processes. Further research avenues are proposed in order to assess the efficacy of such interven...

The objective of this study is to (a) propose a diagnostic method based on Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) and (b) increase its detectability of small lesions. We modified the framework of Faster R-CNN (Faster Region-based Convolutional Neural Network) by introducing multi-scale feature extraction and multi-resolution candidate bound extraction into the network. Then, it was trained using 852 images of BI-RADS C2, 739 images of C3, and 1662 images of malignancy (BI-RADS 4a/4b/4c/5/6). We compared our model with unmodified Faster R-CNN and YOLO v3 (You Only Look Once v3). The mean average precision (mAP) ...

Authors: Mkango SB, Shaban N, Mureithi E, Ngoma T Abstract A type of cancer which originates from the breast tissue is referred to as breast cancer. Globally, it is the most common cause of death in women. Treatments such as radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, immunotherapy, and gene therapy are the main strategies in the fight against breast cancer. The present study aims at investigating the effects of the combined radiotherapy and chemotherapy as a way to treat breast cancer, and different treatment approaches are incorporated into the model. Also, the model is fitted to data on patients with breast can...

Background: Despite recommendations for preventive health services and routine HIV care for HIV-positive women, limited data are available regarding uptake of recommendations. Methods: We used data from the 2013–2014 data cycles of the Medical Monitoring Project. We calculated weighted estimates and used multivariable logistic regression with adjusted prevalence ratios and 95% confidence intervals to examine associations between preventive health screenings, routine HIV care [based on viral load (VL) and CD4 measures as proxies], and sociodemographic factors. Results: Of 2766 women, 47.7% were 50 years and ol...

In this study, the effects of dioscin on PMO were examined and the mechanisms were analyzed. The results indicated that the bone mineral density and ultimate load of PMO rats were increased after being treated with dioscin. H&E staining and immunohistochemical staining showed the bone trabeculae formation and bone differentiation of PMO rats were promoted by dioscin. Western blots revealed that dioscin could activate the PI3K/P38/AKT signaling pathway and inhibit the apoptosis signaling pathway in bone tissue cells of PMO rats. In addition, MTT assays showed that MC3T3-E1 cell viability could be improved by dioscin. These ...
