Authors: Ma Y, Chen P, Drisko JA, Khabele D, Godwin AK, Chen Q Abstract The promise of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase inhibitors (PARPis) in the management of epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is hampered by the limited clinical activity against BRCA wild-type or homologous recombination-proficient EOC. In order to decrease the resistance and increase the efficacy of PARPis, combination treatments of pharmacological ascorbate and PARPis in preclinical BRCA wild-type EOC models were investigated. The cytotoxicity of pharmacological ascorbate, olaparib and veliparib in a panel of BRCA1/2 wild-type EOC cell lines were meas...

Authors: Shibayama Y, Wada N, Baba S, Obara S, Sakai H, Usubuchi H, Terae S, Nakamura A, Atsumi T Abstract Patients with primary aldosteronism (PA) are complicated by metabolic syndrome more frequently than those without PA. Hyperaldosteronism has been reported to be associated with a higher prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). We aimed to clarify the risk factors for hepatic steatosis in the two subtypes of PA, comparing the status of hepatic steatosis in each of these subtypes. This was a retrospective observational study. We enrolled patients with an aldosterone producing adenoma (APA) (n = 3...

This review sought to evaluate the current literature on reproductive and oncologic outcomes after fertility-sparing surgery for early stage cervical cancer (stage IA1 –IB1) including cold-knife conization/simple trachelectomy, vaginal radical trachelectomy, abdominal radical trachelectomy, and laparoscopic radical trachelectomy with or without robotic assistance. A systematic review using the preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta-analysis (P RISMA) checklist to evaluate the current literature on fertility-sparing surgery for early stage cervical cancer and its subsequent clinical pregnancy rate, ...
To describe the diagnosis and the management of hematometra in a patient with unicornuate uterus with noncommunicating functional horn (hemi uterus and rudimentary uterine hemicavity).
Conclusions: In the Canadian setting, the acceptance of rebiopsy on progression was high. Multiple rebiopsies were clinically feasible and could increase the yield for T790M mutation. The incidence of complications was low despite the most common site for rebiopsy being lung. PMID: 32218657 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: Recurrent aggressive behavior is common in both adolescents and adults, with clinically significant consequences to those with this pattern and to others in their environment (ie, using guns and other weapons to threaten others). While this type of behavior can be reduced though pharmacologic/psychosocial treatment intervention, the vast majority of aggressive individuals do not engage in treatment for their aggressive behavior. Screening individuals for such behavior in one's practice may do much toward identifying this problem and bringing such individuals into treatment. PMID: 32220154 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
