Bisphosphonates as a therapeutic choice for multifocal epithelioid hemangioma of bone: A case report

Conclusions: EH of multiple bones responded favorably to intravenous Zometa with improvement of bone metabolic markers. After 1 year on follow-up, the patient was doing well with no significant pain. We suggest that bisphosphonates should be considered in the treatment of multifocal osteolytic EH of bone.

ConclusionsThese observations suggest that SYD is effective in the enhancement of antioxidant ability via activation of Nrf2 pathway and the up-regulation of Nrf2-downstream phase II enzymes expression. The anti-inflammation and antioxidant action of SYD together contributes to the prevention and treatment of ulcerrelated colorectal cancer.Graphical abstract

ConclusionsDentists, dental students, and laypersons decreased their ratings with increased inclination of the occlusal plane; however, laypersons still graded all the 2D and 3D images as esthetically pleasant, giving consistently higher ratings than the dentists and dental students. Overall, 3D simulations obtained higher ratings than 2D images, but the positive effect decreased for the student observers and decreased even further for laypersons.

ConclusionsDespite the inherent bias of a retrospective analysis, our long-term results showed a low toxicity profile with a relatively low rate of biochemical control for HT re-treatment in patients affected by local radiorecurrent prostate cancer. Prospective trials are needed to investigate the role of EBRT in this setting.

Teh, Ivo W. Tremont-Lukats, Steve H. Fung, Paolo Zanotti-Fregonara, Robert C. RostomilyAbstractStereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) or radiotherapy (SRT) is commonly used to treat brain metastasis (BM). While effective in achieving tumor control, a significant number of BM patients exhibit lesion growth on follow-up MR imaging after SRS which cannot reliably distinguish between tumor growth, radiation necrosis (RN) or a mixture of both. ...

GirijaAbstractIn the present work, individual zinc oxide (ZnO), tin oxide (SnO2) and vanadium oxide (V2O5), their binary and ternary combinations were prepared via hydrothermal route. The structure and the morphology of all the samples were characterised using X-ray Diffractometer (XRD) and Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FE-SEM) and Raman spectroscopic tools. UV-Visible spectroscopic analysis was recorded for all the samples. ...

In this study, optimum homogeneous dispersion of multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) in titanium oxide were examined using two different dispersion techniques with the aim of determining the milling parameters of the dispersion. The techniques were based on dry milling using high energy ball milling (HEBM) and ultrasonication probe/tip method assisted with HEBM (uHEBM). The HEBM technique was conducted at a milling speed of 100 rpm for 6 and 9 h and uHEBM method was ultrasonicated for 15 min and additional 5 min stirring time using a magnetic stirrer to homogenously mix MWCNT/TiO2 then slurry was milled at same par...

We present a case of a 53-year-old man suffering back and proximal right femur pain underwent 18F-FDG PET/CT scan. Multiple hypermetabolic lesions of bone were concerning for metastatic carcinoma. Since no primary malignancy was found, open biopsy was performed and histologic examination led to a diagnosis of diffuse skeletal angiomatosis. This case highlighted the importance of including diffuse skeletal hemangiomatosis in the differential diagnosis of multiple hypermetabolic skeletal lesions on 18F-FDG PET/CT.
