Abstract Vismodegib (VMD) is a hedgehog inhibitor which indicated for basal cell skin cancer (BCC). This work focuses on investigating the influence of isopropyl alcohol additive for topical delivering and targeting of VMD-loaded binary ethosomes for BCC treatment. Different binary ethosome formulae were prepared based on Box-Behnken design using different concentrations of phospholipid (A), cholesterol (B) and isopropyl alcohol/total alcohol ratio (C). The prepared formulae were characterized for %entrapment efficiency (R1), vesicle size (R2), %release (R3) and steady-state flux (R4). Increasing A, B and C result...

ConclusionWe identified several methodological concerns and limitations across epidemiological studies on potential risk factors for uterine/endometrial cancer in BCa survivors, including lack of details on uterine/endometrial cancer case ascertainment, varying and imprecise definitions of important covariates, insufficient adjustment for potential confounders, and small numbers of uterine/endometrial cancer cases in the overall as well as stratified analyses. Based on the available evidence, older age and higher body weight measures appear to be a shared risk factor for uterine/endometrial cancer in the general population...

The dangers of alcohol begin at the first sip of the first drink. Although most responsible drinking habits shouldn’t be cause for major concern, everyone who drinks runs the risk of encountering the negative effects of alcohol. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans defines moderate drinking as up to 1 drink per day for women and up to 2 drinks per day for men.  A single drink is considered as: 12 ounces of beer (5% alcohol content) 8 ounces of malt liquor (7% alcohol content) 5 ounces of wine (12% alcohol content) 1.5 ounces of 80-proof (40% alcohol content) distilled spirits or liquor (e.g., gin, rum, vodka, ...
