In conclusion, Melatonin possesses an antioxidant effect that can protect the sciatic nerve from degeneration and potentiate VCR's anticancer effect at the same time.
AbstractPurposeColon cancer is predominantly a disease of older adults. Studies determining the influence of age on outcomes of colon cancer have conflicting results. We aim to determine the long-term outcomes and utilisation of adjuvant chemotherapy of older adults compared with younger adults who had had a resection of a primary colon cancer.MethodsConsecutive patients who had resection of a primary colon cancer between January 1, 2000 and December 31, 2010 were identified from a prospective database and stratified into three age groups: ≤ 69 years, 70 to 79 years, and ≥ 80 years. Age-related differences in patient...

This study was designed to compare the survival and surgical outcomes of laparoscopic colectomy (LC) in elderly and non-elderly patients with transverse colon cancer (TCC). METHODS: From January 2011 to January 2018, 44 elderly (aged ≥70 years) and 72 non-elderly (aged
ConclusionA recurrence prediction model was developed that integrated multiple risk factors in stage II colon cancer patients. High-risk patients were identified by the nomogram.
AbstractPurpose of ReviewContrarily to what happens with rectal cancer, the role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the assessment of colon cancer has been limited. However, we may witness a ‘paradigm shift’ in the future. Classically, colon cancer has been assessed by computed tomography (CT) which is considered the workhorse for evaluating this neoplasm as it provides insights not only about local and regional disease as well as about distant metastases. However, as the accuracy o f CT is somewhat limited, recent reports about the use of MRI in colon cancers have been published. In this review we will ass...
CONCLUSION: Although classically, majority of studies have shown oncogenic roles of nucleoporins as genetic fusion partners in several types of leukemia, emerging evidence suggests that nucleoporins also modulate many cellular signaling pathways that are associated with several major non-hematological malignancies, such as carcinomas of skin, breast, lung, prostate and colon. Hence, nucleoporins are emerging as novel therapeutic targets in human tumors. PMID: 31654122 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]
Conclusions: In patients with two cancers, lung cancer is usually the second event, presumably due to comorbidity, survival and our unique population e.g. radical vs adjuvant or palliative intent. The commonest first cancers were breast and prostate. Prostate, bladder and colon cancer developed lung cancer earlier than breast cancer. These data help to inform which cancer types are likely to develop lung cancer and influence tumour surveillance strategies.
In conclusion, MAG prevents the appearance of sensitive axonal neuropathy and neuromuscular disorders induced by oxaliplatin without affecting its antitumor activity. PMID: 31741707 [PubMed]
Some of the most common symptoms experienced by cancer patients are memory problems, difficulties with multitasking, and reduced attention and concentration. Historically, cancer patients with these symptoms were often diagnosed with depression. Research over the past decade has revealed that many cancer patients experience such symptoms as a consequence of specific damage to the brain caused by either their tumor or their treatment. While radiation to the brain has long been linked to causing cognitive difficulties, the effects of chemotherapy on brain structure and function have only recently been discovered. We now know...
