Authors: Karczewski J, Śledzińska E, Baturo A, Jończyk I, Maleszko A, Maleszko A, Samborski P, Begier-Krasińska B, Dobrowolska A Abstract The prevalence of obesity has recently increased dramatically and has contributed to the increasing prevalence of various pathological conditions, including type 2 diabetes mellitus, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, asthma, various types of cancer, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, and others. Accumulating evidence points to localized inflammation in adipose tissue, which, in turn, promotes systemic low-grade inflammation as a primary force contributing to the d...

CONCLUSION: Bone pain is a common and sometimes severe symptom of bone metastases in advanced breast cancer and a common reason for initiating BTA treatment. Safety and efficacy were the main factors considered by physicians when selecting BTAs. Past Presentations: Data previously presented at the ISPOR 18th Annual European Congress, Milan, Italy; November 7-11, 2015 and at the Breast Cancer Symposium, San Francisco, CA, USA; September 25-27, 2015.

CONCLUSIONS: Although the use of PP-CSF is commonplace in current US clinical practice, underutilization in cancer patients receiving chemotherapy regimens with an intermediate/high-risk for FN may still be an issue. Use of same-day PP-CSF increased markedly from the end of 2015, although this finding reflects (at least in part) increased uptake of pegfilgrastim delivered via an on-body injector as well as the recent change in clinical practice guidelines. Overall, patients receiving PP-CSF appear to have a lower risk of FN during the first cycle of chemotherapy. PMID: 30550346 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Gutiérrez-Uribe, Sergio O. Serna SaldivarAbstractThe effect of selenium enriched chickpea sprouts with and without isoflavonoids (IS) on colorectal cancer (CRC) tumor growth was evaluated in immune-suppressed mice xenografted. Two levels of selenium (0.17 and 2.29 µg/g) and isoflavonoids (0 and 2.34 mg/g) were evaluated in the diets. High intake of Se (2.29 µg/g) with and wi...

Authors: Agrawal P, Heimbruch KE, Rao S Abstract Gene expression is regulated by numerous elements including enhancers, insulators, transcription factors, and architectural proteins. Regions of DNA distal to the transcriptional start site, called enhancers, play a central role in the temporal and tissue-specific regulation of gene expression through RNA polymerase II. The identification of enhancers and other cis regulatory elements has largely been possible due to advances in next generation sequencing technologies. Enhancers regulate gene expression through chromatin loops mediated by architectural proteins such ...

Authors: Christensen JF, Simonsen C, Hojman P Abstract Exercise training is playing an increasing role in cancer care, as accumulating evidence demonstrates that exercise may prevent cancer, control disease progression, interact with anti-cancer therapies, and improve physical functioning and psychosocial outcomes. In this overview article, we present the current state of the field of exercise oncology, which currently comprises of nearly 700 unique exercise intervention trials with more than 50,000 cancer patients. First, we summarize the range of these interventions with regard to diagnoses, clinical setting, tim...

This study seeks to comprehensively examine both the content and sender factors that determine cancer information diffusion. Specifically, a multidimensional measure is proposed to capture diffusion characteristics of cancer information, including the scale of information diffusion, structural virality of information diffusion, and the engagement in cancer discussion. A conceptual framework consisting of content and sender factors is proposed based on the heuristic-systematic model to account for cancer information diffusion. Through analyzing information diffusion networks of cancer-related information on Weibo, the resul...
