Enhancing Cancer Immunotherapy with Artificial Intelligence
Physicians may soon use artificial intelligence (AI) and medical images to study tumors without a biopsy. The techniques developed to study tumors in this new way are described in the September 1 issue of The Lancet Oncology. Along with helping physicians learn more about tumors without surgery, the new approach should help identify which cancer patients will respond best to cutting-edge immunotherapy treatments. The AI techniques could be useful for “predicting clinical outcomes of patients treated with immunotherapy when validated by further prospective randomized trials,” the authors wrote. Immunotherapy tre...

What Type of Conservative Treatments Can Help for Plantar Fasciitis?
Discussion The plantar fascia consists of 3 bands of dense connective tissue that originates in the medical calcaneal tubercle and inserts into the base of each of the 5 proximal phalyanxes in a fan-shaped distribution. It acts as a shock absorber and reinforces the medial longitudinal arch as the foot undergoes forward propulsion. The -itis in plantar fasciitis (PF) is a misnomer as it is not an acute inflammation but is a chronic degenerative process involving the plantar fascia aponeurosis of the foot usually at the medial tubercle of the calcaneous. Repetitive strain seems to cause microtearing which then causes a repa...
