Authors: Kajiyama H, Suzuki S, Utsumi F, Nishino K, Niimi K, Mizuno M, Yoshikawa N, Kawai M, Oguchi H, Mizuno K, Yamamuro O, Shibata K, Nagasaka T, Kikkawa F Abstract Malignant ovarian neoplasm is one of the most lethal malignancies among cancers of the female reproductive system. Occasionally, these tumors originate from non-ovarian organs as metastatic lesions since the ovary is a frequent metastatic target of many cancers. However, there limited clinical information on metastatic ovarian carcinoma (MOC) and its hallmarks are unknown. During the period of 1986-2015, 4,284 patients with malignant ovarian neoplasm ...

Publication date: Available online 18 April 2019Source: Seminars in Ultrasound, CT and MRIAuthor(s): Mahesh ShettyOnce a pelvic mass is identified on an ultrasound examination, the first step in the differential diagnostic work up is to determine its origin. Most lateral pelvic masses in women are ovarian in origin, and the distinction between ovarian and nonovarian mimics of ovarian cancer is critical for appropriate clinical and surgical management. Adnexal masses detected on ultrasound can be further characterized by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) when needed. Superior contrast resolution, multiplanar imaging, charact...

ConclusionGoblet cell carcinoma of the appendix is very rate. It tends to seed throughout the peritoneum, making aggressive surgical cytoreduction and chemotherapy viable treatment options. Investigation into the molecular basis of these tumors may improve the diagnosis, prognosis and therapeutic decisions regarding these patients. ∆Np73 seems a good candidate for further analysis in longer series.

Hansen2 and Fabio Vandin1* 1Department of Information Engineering, University of Padova, Padova, Italy 2Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark Next-generation sequencing technologies allow to measure somatic mutations in a large number of patients from the same cancer type: one of the main goals in their analysis is the identification of mutations associated with clinical parameters. The identification of such relationships is hindered by extensive genetic heterogeneity in tumors, with different genes mutated in different patien...

Giant pharmaceutical/ biotechnology/ device company Johnson&Johnson has its famous" credo " which starts withWe believe our first responsibility is to the doctors, nurses and patients, to mothers and fathers and all others who use our products and services.  In meeting their needs everything we do must be of high quality..Nonetheless, the company has a long history of ethical misadventures (lookhere, and see appendix below).  Now late in 2018,  we note two more Johnson&Johnson misadventures. In chronological order,$360 Million Settlement of Allegations of Kickbacks to Medicare/ Medicaid Pat...

ConclusionsReduction of postoperative complications after CRS –HIPEC is essential for optimal short- and long-term outcomes. For assessing total burden of postoperative complications per patient, CCI is superior to CDC and more sensitive for assessing surgery- and cancer-related outcomes after CRS–HIPEC.
