In spite of attempts to classifying breast cancer according to its histological and molecular properties, it is almost considered as a dilemma in treatment. Nowadays, public and medical attentions have primary focused on foods with anti-cancer properties to alleviate the cancer problems. Flavonoid components such as Quercetin (Qu) as dietary substances with high attention of ordinary people might provide potentia...

Recent studies pointed out that hydrogels can be used as screens during APPJ treatment, or even be used as reservoirs for reactive oxygen and nitrogen species generated by APPJ in liquids. Thus, novel applications are emerging for hydrogels which deserve fundamental exploration of the possible modifications undergone by the polyme...

We describe the supportive medications used by treatment-na ïve lung cancer patients and assess their association with PROs from MD Anderson Symptom Inventory (MDASI).MethodsTreatment-na ïve lung cancer patients who completed PROs from MDASI at the initial visit to MD Anderson Cancer Center were included. Medications from the initial visit were abstracted from the electronic medical records system and categorized into therapeutic classes based on U.S. Pharmacopeia v7.0. A chi-squar e or Mann-WhitneyU test was conducted as appropriate.ResultsAmong 459 patients, ~  50% took any analgesics and 25% were on opi...

Double ‐faced (Janus) gold‐iron oxide nanoparticles combine magnetic and plasmonic features as smart multifunctional platforms for theranostics nanomedicine. Herein, they are proved as efficient therapeutic nanoheaters under both magnetic hyperthermia (MHT) and photothermia (PTT) procedures. Thanks to the magnetic core, PTT can be improved on‐site upon systemic administration and magnetic guiding, leading to tumor growth inhibition. AbstractProgress of thermal tumor therapies and their translation into clinical practice are limited by insufficient nanoparticle concentration to release therapeutic heating at the tumor...

However, their delivery via oral route has been a persistent challenge due to harsh environment of the gastrointestinal tract. Herein, we explored the potential of PEGylation onto liposomes as an effective strategy to protect them from harsh gastric environment and as a successful drug delivery carrie...

However, the clinical applications of ROS-mediated cancer therapies still have many limitations, such as self-defects of traditional photosensitizer, adverse tumor microenvironment (TME), and insufficient ROS production. Here, two-dimensional and highly oxidized ilmenite nanosheets (HOIL NSs, for...

This article presents her outstanding character and most important lines of research. The focus of her studies covered alkylative and oxidative damage to DNA bases, in particular mutagenic and carcinogenic properties of purines with an open imidazole ring and 8-oxo-7,8-dihydroguanine (8-oxoGua). They also included analysis of mutagenic properties and pathways for the repair of DNA adducts of lipid peroxidation (LPO) products arising in large quantities during inflammation. Professor Tudek did all of this in the hope of deciphering the mechanisms of DNA damage removal, in particular by the base excision repair (BER) pathway...
