It turns out that many more people than just boomers can benefit from testing for hepatitis C, a viral infection of the liver that often causes no symptoms. If you’re a member of the baby-boom generation (born between 1946 and 1964), your doctor may have already recommended the test. But those born before or after those years may not have known about the test unless they had a risk factor for hepatitis C, such as a history of intravenous drug use. A new guideline is changing this approach. Why the different recommendations for baby boomers? In 2012–2013, the CDC and the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF...

AbstractNovel adjunctive screening aids are needed to reduce the morbidity and mortality related to cancer, and every effort should be made for early diagnosis. This systematic review aimed to evaluate salivary metabolites and their diagnostic value in patients with cancer.The systematic review was performed in two phases and included studies that focused on the diagnostic value of salivary metabolites in humans with solid malignant neoplasms. Five electronic databases were searched, and the risk of bias in individual studies was evaluated using the revised Quality Assessment of Diagnostic Accuracy Studies criteria (QUADAS...

Thomas A. Firey andPeter Van DorenCrises often illuminate “inefficient” public policies—ones with costs that outweigh their benefits. Society can tolerate (and may not even notice) them in ordinary times, allowing the policies to continue and protect and enrich special interests. But in crises, their costs become less tolerable.Because of the coronavirus, the U.S. economy is experiencing simultaneous negative shocks todemand andsupply. The demand shock is broadly understood: “social distancing” is causing people to avoid (and governments to close or curtail) mass transit, restaurants, personal...

Cannabinoids activate a major cancer-causing pathway, p38 MAPK, in patients with human papillomavirus-positive head and neck cancers, according to a study published in Clinical Cancer Research in January. When turned on, the pathway prevents apoptosis, which allows increased growth and invasion of cancer cells, the researchers reported. “I am cautioning patients with HPV-related head and […]

Abstract The development of nanoparticle-based drugs has provided many opportunities to diagnose, treat and cure challenging diseases. Through the manipulation of size, morphology, surface modification, surface characteristics, and materials used, a variety of nanostructures can be developed into smart systems, encasing therapeutic and imaging agents with stealth properties. These nanostructures can deliver drugs to specific tissues or sites and provide controlled release therapy. This targeted and sustained drug delivery decreases the drug-related toxicity and increases the patient's compliance with less frequent...

CONCLUSION: Urinary DNA offers non-invasive probing and real-time monitoring of breast cancer relapse. Our results demonstrated clear clinical relevance in breast cancer and significant risk profiling of early breast cancer patients. This potentially aids to complement current cancer relapse monitoring and may help in early intervention. PMID: 32176625 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
