This study investigated the antibacterial activities of ethyl acetate and methanol leaf-extracts of Psidium guajava (guava) and Carica papaya (paw-paw) on bacteria pathogens isolated from toothbrushes. A total of 100 manual used toothbru...
The individual antimicrobial activities of essential oils have been reported by many authors. However, there is little information about the effects of their mixtures in order to maximize their effect and reduce the growing resistance of pathogens to existing medicines. So, the aim of this work is to optimize the antibacterial and antifungal activities of essential oils from Plectranthus gla...

AbstractBackgroundUntil now, there is no clear conclusion on the relationship between the surgical margin status after radical prostatectomy (RP) and prostate cancer-specific mortality (PCSM). Therefore, we conducted this systematic review and meta-analysis based on all eligible case –control studies.MethodsA systematic and comprehensive literature search was performed based on PUBMED and EMBASE to identify all of the potentially relevant publications which were published before September 2019. Hazard ratio (HR) for PCSM was independently extracted by two reviewers from all eligible studies. Pooled HR estimates with ...
ConclusionThe findings declare that inhibition ofPVT1 could be a new target in the treatment of AML-M0 and help to approach more to treatments with fewer side effects.
AbstractPurposeTo identify patients with metastatic urothelial cancer (mUC) unlikely to benefit from immune-checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs).Methods/PatientsWe explored the predictive and prognostic values of baseline neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), with cut-offs ≥ 3 and ≥ 5, and of a urothelial immune prognostic index (UIPI, based on increased NLR and LDH), on 146 patients.ResultsNLR and UIPI significantly predicted progressive disease and progression-free survival with both cut-offs (p = 0.0069,p = 0.0034,p = 0.0160,p = 0.0063;p
ConclusionsIn conclusion, both the venous access catheter selection algorithm and the proposed recommendations aim to respond to the needs revealed in clinical practice and to become an integrable tool in electronic prescription systems to offer homogeneous criteria for action in cancer patients that require venous access, optimizing the use of available health resources with the highest safety and quality of life for the patient.
ConclusionsThe implementation of what the transposition of the Directive to our legal order implies, besides the implication of the professionals, Centers and Administration, a need and a consumption of resources. If not enough are allocated, there is a risk that the innovation and improvement that the transposition would imply in order to raise the level of patient safety and the quality of Radiation Oncology in Spain will remain a paper tiger and, as the Romans said, “Non progredi est regredi”, that is, when it does not go forward, it goes backwards.
ConclusionmiR-1976 may serve as a promising non-invasive biomarker for the diagnosis of BC in the future.
