The use of electrochemotherapy in combination with immunotherapy in the treatment of metastatic melanoma: a focused review
AbstractElectrochemotherapy (ECT) is a treatment modality that combines low ‐dose chemotherapy with electroporation, thereby enhancing cytotoxicity.

Subclinical atherosclerosis in psoriatic disease: relation to endocan, TNF ‐α, age of onset, and body fat
This study was conducted on 30 moderate ‐severe psoriasis vulgaris patients and 30 healthy controls. Body mass index, body fat percent, and PASI assessments were done. Serum endocan and tumor necrosis factor‐α levels were measured by ELISA. Carotid artery intima‐media thickness measurement by high‐resolution ultrasound was perfor med.ResultsPsoriasis patients showed significantly higher serum tumor necrosis factor ‐α and endocan levels (P1 = 0.008, P2 = 0.003). Additionally, there was a statistically significant difference between mean carotid artery intima‐media thickness of both groups (P = 0.005)...
