Evaluation of the role of vaccination in the COVID-19 pandemic based on the data from the 50 U.S. States
Comput Struct Biotechnol J. 2022;20:4138-4145. doi: 10.1016/j.csbj.2022.08.009. Epub 2022 Aug 8.ABSTRACTVaccination is considered as the ultimate weapon to end the pandemic. However, the role of vaccines in the pandemic remains controversial. To explore the impact of vaccination on the COVID-19 pandemic, we used logistic regression models to predict numbers of population-adjusted confirmed cases, deaths, intensive care unit (ICU) cases, case fatality rates and ICU admission rates of COVID-19 in the 50 U.S. states, based on 17 related variables. The logistic regression analysis showed that percentages of people vaccinated c...

The Evolving Epidemiology of Oral Cavity and Oropharyngeal Cancers
This study, the largest at the time, introduced several novel concepts in oropharyngeal cancer epidemiology that remain relevant today-etiologic heterogeneity, statistical interaction effects, adjusted attributable fractions, and disparities by sex and race/ethnicity. Perhaps the most significant recognition in the field since 1988 is the etiologic association of human papillomavirus (HPV, primarily HPV16) with cancers arising in the oropharynx. Today, more than 80% of oropharyngeal cancers in the United States are caused by HPV while only approximately 3% of oral cavity cancers are caused by HPV. This etiologic heterogene...

MKK6 deficiency promotes cardiac dysfunction through MKK3-p38 γ/δ-mTOR hyperactivation
In conclusion, we have identified a key role for the MKK3/6-p38γ/δ pathway in the development of cardiac hypertrophy, which has important implications for the clinical use of p38α inhibitors in the long-term treatment since they might result in cardiotoxicity.PMID:35971771 | DOI:10.7554/eLife.75250 (Source: Cancer Control)

Dietary Total Antioxidant Capacity and Odds of Breast Cancer: A Case-Control Study
This study was conducted on 136 newly diagnosed breast cancer patients and 272 hospitalized controls in Tehran, Iran. Participant habitual diet was obtained using a 168-item validated food frequency questionnaire. Dietary TAC scores were computed using two different methods: the dietary ferric reducing antioxidant potential (FRAP) method and oxygen radical scavenging capacity (ORAC). The association between dietary TAC and breast cancer risk was estimated by logistic regression. The score of DTAC calculated by ORAC method was associated with lower odds of BC, especially among premenopausal women. However, this association ...

Associations Between Adherence to Evidence-Based, Stroke Quality Indicators and Outcomes of Acute Reperfusion Therapy
CONCLUSIONS: We demonstrated national marked and sustainable improvement in adherence to door-to-needle time, door-to-puncture time, and successful reperfusion from 2013 to 2017 in Japan in patients with acute ischemic stroke. Adhering to the key QIs substantially affected in-hospital outcomes, underlining the importance of monitoring the quality of care using evidence-based QIs and the nationwide Close The Gap-Stroke program.PMID:35971841 | DOI:10.1161/STROKEAHA.121.038483 (Source: Cancer Control)

Orientation-controlled crystallization of γ-glycine films with enhanced piezoelectricity
J Mater Chem B. 2022 Aug 16. doi: 10.1039/d2tb00997h. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTGlycine, the simplest amino acid, is considered a promising functional biomaterial owing to its excellent biocompatibility and strong out-of-plane piezoelectricity. Practical applications require glycine films to be manufactured with their strong piezoelectric polar 〈001〉 direction aligned with the film thickness. Based on the recently-developed solidification approach of a polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and glycine aqueous solution, in this work, we demonstrate that the crystal orientation of the as-synthesized film is determined by the orien...

Developing Bottom-Up Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Derived Solid Tumor Models Using Precision Genome Editing Technologies
CRISPR J. 2022 Aug;5(4):517-535. doi: 10.1089/crispr.2022.0032.ABSTRACTAdvances in genome and tissue engineering have spurred significant progress and opportunity for innovation in cancer modeling. Human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are an established and powerful tool to study cellular processes in the context of disease-specific genetic backgrounds; however, their application to cancer has been limited by the resistance of many transformed cells to undergo successful reprogramming. Here, we review the status of human iPSC modeling of solid tumors in the context of genetic engineering, including how base and pri...

Leptomeningeal Metastasis from Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer and Current Landscape of Treatments
Clin Cancer Res. 2022 Aug 16:CCR-22-1585. doi: 10.1158/1078-0432.CCR-22-1585. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTLeptomeningeal metastasis (LM), also known as leptomeningeal carcinomatosis (LC), is a devastating complication of metastatic cancer that occurs when neoplastic cells invade the meningeal space. Diagnosis of LM remains challenging given the heterogeneous signs and symptoms at presentation and requires thorough neurological examination, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain and spine with gadolinium. Detecting neoplastic cells in the cerebrospinal fluid is the gold stand...
