AbstractPurposeWe sought to examine associations of mammography utilization with comorbidities and functional limitations in older breast cancer survivors.MethodsFemale breast cancer survivors (N = 1064) identified in the 2016 and 2018 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) who were aged ≥ 65 years were included for this study. Mammography use, major comorbidities (diabetes mellitus, myocardial infarction, coronary heart disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary di sease, arthritis, chronic kidney disease, depression, and malignancy other than breast cancer), functional limitat...

AbstractBackgroundA practical strategy to discover sepsis specific proteins may be to compare the plasma peptides and proteins from patients in the intensive care unit with and without sepsis. The aim was to discover proteins and/or peptides that show greater observation frequency and/or precursor intensity in sepsis. The endogenous tryptic peptides of ICU-Sepsis were compared to ICU Control, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, female normal, sepsis, heart attack, Alzheimer ’s and multiple sclerosis along with their institution-matched controls, female normals and normal samples collected directly onto ice.MethodsEndogeno...

Abstract As the foremost common female malignancy, breast cancer (BC) poses a significant public health stumbling block. Although treatment protocols have improved over the years, the overall prognosis of BC remains unsatisfactory. Extensive investigations have taken place into long non coding RNAs (lncRNAs) pertaining to their involvement in carcinogenesis. The current study in connection with bioinformatics tools aimed to identify the myocardial infarction associated transcript (MIAT) as a BC-related differentially expressed lncRNA in an attempt to elucidate the effect of MIAT in BC cells. MIAT was initially ove...
