Perceived Deterrence Towards Colonoscopy for Colorectal Cancer Screening among Northern Malaysia Population: A Qualitative Study.

CONCLUSIONS: More effective communication between patients and health care providers are warranted to avoid misconception regarding colonoscopy procedure. Support from primary care doctors, customer-friendly appointment system, use of educational aids and better involvement from family members were among the strategies to increase colonoscopy compliance.

In this study, we used markers to monitor the formation of SGs in Caenorhabditis elegans. We found that, in addition to acute heat stress, SG formation could also be triggered by dietary changes, such as starvation and dietary restriction (DR). We found that HSF-1 is required for the SG formation in response to acute heat shock and starvation but not DR, whereas the AMPK-eEF2K signaling is required for starvation and DR-induced SG formation but not heat shock. Moreover, our data suggest that this AMPK-eEF2K pathway-mediated SG formation is required for lifespan extension by DR, but dispensable for the longevity by reduced ...

Conclusion: HIV–infected people with lymphoid malignancies have an increased risk of subsequent non–lymphoid cancers. As risks remained significant after adjustment for time since HIV diagnosis and prior AIDS diagnosis, it suggests that immunosuppression may explain some, but not all, of these risks.

Abstract Natural polysaccharides as well as biopolymers are now days widely developed for targeting colon cancer using various drug delivery systems. Currently, healing conformations are being explored that can efficiently play multipurpose role. Owing to the capability of extravagance colonic diseases with least adverse effects, biopolymers for site specific colon delivery has developed an increased curiosity over the past decades. Inulin (INU) was explored for its probable application as an entrapment material concerning its degradation by enzymes in the colonic microflora and its drug release behavior in a sust...

The aim of this review is to prov...

The declines in overdose deaths with fentanyl analogs (carfentanil, furanylfentanyl, acrylfentanyl, and cyclopropylfentanyl) detected contributed to declines in opioid-involved overdose deaths during 2018 among a subset of states, even as deaths with fentanyl detected increased over time, which highlights the continued need to test for fentanyl analogs.
