Women could conceive after ovarian tumors
(Karolinska Institutet) Women receiving fertility-sparing surgery for treatment of borderline ovarian tumours were able to have children, a study from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden published in Fertility& Sterility shows. Natural fertility was preserved in most of them and only a small proportion required assisted reproductive treatment such as in vitro fertilization. Survival in the group was also as high as in women who had undergone radical surgical for treatment of similar tumours. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Study: Preoperative Chemotherapy Useful for Mesothelioma
Oncologists in France are exploring the use of bidirectional chemotherapy as a pre-operative tool for peritoneal mesothelioma, increasing the eligibility of patients for aggressive surgery. Their bidirectional chemotherapy — which typically includes a pemetrexed (Alimta) and cisplatin combination — is delivered directly into the abdominal cavity to reduce tumor burden and make cytoreductive surgery more manageable. Doctors at Gustave Roussy, one of Europe’s premier cancer centers, documented this novel use in a study published in the November issue of Annals of Surgical Oncology. “This is the first study to demonst...

Causes of Psychosis
When my son Dan was diagnosed with severe obsessive-compulsive disorder, his psychiatrist informed me and my husband that Dan was “borderline psychotic.” In other words, our son was out of touch with reality. For most people, psychosis usually presents in one of two ways: Hallucinations – consist of seeing, hearing or feeling things that are not actually there. A common example is hearing voices. Delusions – consist of beliefs that are not likely to be true and that seem irrational or nonsensical to other people. A typical example involves believing that outside forces are controlling your thoughts, feelings, and ...

That Time My Ovary Grew Something It Shouldn't, Twice
I felt it jolt me awake and suddenly I knew I couldn't really move. My stomach was clenched tight from the stabbing sensation, my legs were curled, and I laid there in a fetal position in our bed waking my fiancé up with my groaning. "Do you need a Gas X again or suppository? I told you not to eat all that ice cream," she mumbled half-asleep like she's had to every other night for years because I'm a stubborn fat ass. Though it was very possible Chocolate Malted Crunch was to blame, something told me it was something else. And I was right. Later at the hospital that day, we learned I had ruptured an ovarian cyst on my ri...

Modified herpes virus 'could combat skin cancer'
Conclusion This randomised controlled trial has demonstrated the effectiveness of a novel injectable immune treatment for advanced melanoma that cannot be surgically removed. The trial has various strengths, including its large sample size, analysis by intention to treat, and blinding of assessors to treatment assignment, which should have reduced the risk of bias. It demonstrated that, overall, significantly more people responded to treatment with T-VEC than GM-CSF injections. It also improved survival by an average of 4.4 months, but this only just reached statistical significance, meaning we can have less confidence i...

New way to distinguish between ovarian tumours
Conclusion This study describes a new way of distinguishing between benign and malignant ovarian tumours, and for distinguishing between different stages of malignant tumours. The reseachers found their prediction model was able to discriminate well between benign and malignant tumours overall. But it showed more variable accuracy for distinguishing between different stages of ovarian cancer – for example, between borderline, stage I and stage II to IV ovarian cancers and secondary metastatic tumours. As the researchers point out, a potential limitation of their study is they were only able to study tumours from women w...
