Correlation between cervical carcinogenesis and tobacco use by sexual partners.
CONCLUSION: Since the almost exclusively cause of cervical neoplasms is due to the presence and carcinogenic activity of HPV, the harmful/synergistic effect of smoking, passive smoking and partner smoking cannot be attributed to the direct carcinogenic effect of nicotine but to the overall damage of the immune system as we as the reduction of cervical self-defense making it more vulnerable to the carcinogenic nature of HPV, in particular the increased pathogenic types 16 and 18. Lastly, another potential correlation that could be further examined is the potential effects of tobacco constituents in cervical fluids on the self-defense system of the male reproductive system.

Authors: Berger R, Rath W, Abele H, Garnier Y, Kuon RJ, Maul H Abstract BACKGROUND: The preterm birth rate in Germany has remained unchanged at 8-9% since 2009. Preterm birth is the most common cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality. In the absence of a causal treatment, it is important to lower the risk of preterm birth by preventive measures in prenatal outpatient care. METHODS: This review is based on pertinent publications from the years 2000-2019 that were retrieved by a selective search in PubMed. RESULTS: The clinical risk factors for preterm birth-known mainly from retrospective cohort studies-in...
CONCLUSION: Although local treatment already has a place in many guidelines on the basis of the findings of a small number of prospective and retrospective studies, a option of local treatment should be considered by an interdisciplinary tumor board individually for suitable patients.

DEATHS from prostate cancer have hit a record high – exceeding 12,000 in a year for the first time.
Noorbakhsh-Sabet et al.1 published an excellent review in The American Journal of Medicine summarizing the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) in medicine. They describe wide utility (e.g. in dermatology and stroke), but do not consider surgery and urology, which embrace cutting-edge technology, including fusion-biopsy and robotics,2 and will be early AI adopters. Indeed, prostate cancer creates a huge health care burden, thus being ideal for AI transformation.
We agree with the comments in the letter to the editor from Norris and Raza. The areas where artificial intelligence (AI) can be transformative is beyond what we summarized.1 It is important to mention that the field of AI has been especially transformative in areas where clinical imaging is well integrated into the clinical practice, areas such as radiology, pathology, cancer, and surgery.
