Publication date: Available online 18 January 2020Source: Redox BiologyAuthor(s): Mohamad Assi, Suzanne Dufresne, Amélie RébillardAbstractIn this paper of the special issue dedicated for the Olympics 2020, we put the light on an exciting facet of exercise-oncology, which may still be unknown to some audience. Accumulating convincing evidences show that exercise reduces cancer progression and recurrence mainly in colon and breast cancer patients. Interestingly, the positive effects of exercise on cancer outcomes were mainly observed when patients practiced vigorous exercise of 6 METs or more. At the molecular ...

Authors: Bharadwaj AS, Swamy PM, Mamas MA Abstract Introduction: There are numerous shared risk factors in the etiopathogenesis of coronary artery disease (CAD) and cancer both at the epidemiologic and molecular level. Additionally, the different modalities of treatment of cancer such as radiation, chemotherapy, immunotherapy and hormonal therapies further increase the risk of CAD and acute coronary syndrome. Most large database analysis and single center experiences have shown that cancer patients undergoing PCI are at an increased risk of in-hospital mortality, bleeding repeat revascularization.Areas covered: In ...

Conclusions: Salvage chemotherapy (often with rituximab and radiotherapy), followed by HDT and stem cell transplantation, appears to be the standard real-world treatment for rrPMBCL. However, large prospective and retrospective studies are warranted to improve our knowledge of real-world treatment patterns. PMID: 31951774 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 17 January 2020Source: Neuroscience LettersAuthor(s): Lauren M. Styczynski, Katie A. Schappacher, Mark L. BacceiAbstractEarly life administration of vincristine (VNC), commonly used to treat pediatric leukemia, evokes peripheral neuropathy and mechanical pain hypersensitivity in rats that lasts into adolescence. However, the degree to which VNC-evoked neuropathic pain persists throughout adulthood has yet to be examined. It also remains unclear if pediatric VNC exposure can ‘prime’ developing nociceptive pathways and thereby exacerbate chronic pain following subsequent trauma ...

AbstractThe present study evaluated adherence to antiemetic guidelines for prevention and treatment of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) in four tertiary university teaching hospitals in Tehran. This prospective observational study enrolled 382 adult patients on chemotherapy at oncology centers affiliated to medical universities located in Tehran. Patients were followed up during their chemotherapy cycles. Risk factors related to CINV were evaluated, and information on antiemetic prescribing patterns was gathered using direct interview and patient medical records. Guideline adherence was found to be low; howe...

Authors: Yin W, Zhong G, Fan H, Xia H Abstract Fluorouracil (5-FU) and oxaliplatin (L-OHP) are the most commonly used chemotherapy drugs for colorectal cancer, though resistance is common. Compound Sophora injection is a traditional Chinese medicine that can protect the liver against oxidation, improve immunity, and enhance sensitivity to chemotherapy; it may have an effect of reversing resistance in 5-FU- and L-OHP-resistant gastric cancer cells (5-FU/SW480 and L-OHP/SW480, respectively). A concentration gradient experiment was performed to identify a nontoxic dose of compound Sophora injection. 5-FU/SW480 and L-O...

This study aimed to evaluate the costs of CRS and HIPEC and treatment of the related postoperative complications in the public healthcare system. We also aimed to identify the risk factors that increase the cost of CRS and HIPEC.Materials and methodsWe retrospectively evaluated 80 patients who underwent CRS and HIPEC between February 2016 and November 2018 in the Department of Surgery, University Hospital of Olomouc, Czech Republic. Intraoperative factors and postoperative complications were assessed. The treatment cost included the surgery, hospital stay, intensive care unit (ICU) admission, pharmaceutical charges includi...
