Hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa in the genitoanal region.

[Hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa in the genitoanal region]. Hautarzt. 2020 Feb 20;: Authors: Hessam S, Bechara FG Abstract Hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa (HS/AI) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease. Several studies showed that perianal, perineal and gluteal involvement is more common in men. Axillary, submammary and inguinal localizations seem to be more prevalent in women. Involvement of the genitoanal region is associated with a higher reduced quality of live and sexual health compared to other locations. Moreover HS/AI in the genitoanal region can lead to serious complications. The knowledge of perianal fistula formation, pubogenital lymphedema and squamous cell carcinoma, which are three of the most severe complications, is critical for adequate treatment.

CONCLUSION: EpCAM proved high specificity among HCC patients and its expression was associated with metastasis and portal vein thrombosis. Higher serum levels of CEA among the EpCAM positive patients may attract the attention to a subgroup of HCC patients who are more liable to develop metastasis.. PMID: 32212818 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: An inverse correlation between FasL expression and TILs level, that might indicate FasL-induced TILs apoptosis in tumor tissue, was observed. The strong inverse correlation between FasL and TILs presence showed some insight about the interactions between cancer cells and its surroundings inside of the cervical cancer tissue. This might also be further developed to tailor a prognostic marker that can predict the outcome of therapy in patients, not only in cervical cancer, but generally in all cancer.

CONCLUSION: Induction chemotherapy with Cisplatin and Docetaxel is a promising regimen with good response and favorable toxicity profile and can be considered as a potentially effective outpatient regimen for locally advanced squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck.

CONCLUSION: Once weekly low dose cisplatin treatment showed lower acute toxicity and a better compliance compared to once every 3 weeks high dose cisplatin treatment at the expense of a lower loco-regional control. PMID: 32212810 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: Overall, the results clearly establish the potential of ICLH extract to inhibit cell proliferation and induce apoptosis in the SCC-9 cells. Further analysis of the ICLH fraction could result in development of effective anticancer therapeutics. The natural abundance of I. cylindrica with its wide geographic distribution could make it a preferred natural resource for obtaining novel, cost-effective, anticancer therapeutics with minimal systemic side effects.

Authors: Rasmy A, Sorour Y Abstract BACKGROUND: Obesity and overweight are usually considered as poor prognostic factors in early breast cancer. Body mass index (BMI) is a significant predictive factor for lower pathologic complete response (pCR) rates after neo-adjuvant systemic therapy (NST). The relationship between obesity and breast cancer prognosis varies according to patient and tumor characteristics such as menopausal status and tumor subtype, respectively. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between March 2010 and October 2013, 80 patients with early breast cancer who had received standard NST from KFSH Saudi Arabia...

This study aimed to investigate the association between Arg399Gln SNP and the risk of squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Ninety nine patients with squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck and 89 healthy adult controls were enrolled in this study. The Arg399Gln in XRCC1 allele was genotyped using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism method. RESULTS: In the single-locus analyses, Arg399Gln SNP showed a significant association with head and neck cancer risk (p value = 0.016 and odd ratio of 1.8). On the genotype level, we applied three analysis models,...

CONCLUSION: The findings of this study indicates that late Masaoka-Koga staging and histology types are significantly associated with extended overall survival. Similarly, surgical resection and multimodality treatments play a significant role in thymic malignancies neoplasms therapy strategies to prolong survival rates. PMID: 32212790 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: El-Daly UM, Saber MM, Abdellateif MS, Nassar HR, Namour AE, Ismail YM, Zekri AN Abstract BACKGROUND: Adipokines play an important role in the regulation of inflammation and tumor progression. AIM: Assessment of the possible role of adiponectin, leptin and visfatin in HCV associated hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS: patients were classified into 85 patients with HCV associated HCC, 100 patients with chronic hepatitis C viral (HCV) infection compared to 50 normal control (NC) subjects. All subjects included in the study were assessed for HCV infection by seropositive HCV antibodies, as well as...

Authors: La Rosa GRM, Gattuso G, Pedullà E, Rapisarda E, Nicolosi D, Salmeri M Abstract Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is the leading cause of mortality for oral cancer. Numerous risk factors mainly related to unhealthy habits and responsible for chronic inflammation and infections have been recognized as predisposing factors for oral carcinogenesis. Recently, even microbiota alterations have been associated with the development of human cancers. In particular, some specific bacterial strains have been recognized and strongly associated with oral cancer development (Capnocytophaga gingivalis, Fusobacter...
