Interventional Radiology Approaches for Liver Metastases from Thyroid Cancer: A Case Series and Overview of the Literature
ConclusionLRTs for LMs represent a valuable option for the treatment of metastatic TC in case of isolated hepatic progression or for symptoms relief, also after the  start of TKI treatment as part of a multimodal approach. The best disease control is obtained when hepatic metastatic burden is limited. These procedures are generally well tolerated; however, a cautious multidisciplinary selection of the candidates is mandatory. (Source: Journal of Gastrointestinal Cancer)

Genetic and Histopathological Alterations in Caco-2 and HuH-7 Cells Treated with Secondary Metabolites of Marine fungi
AbstractThe present work aimed to  study the activity of naturally derived fungal secondary metabolites as anticancer agents concerning their cytotoxicity, apoptotic, genetic, and histopathological profile. It was noticed thatAspergillus terreus,Aspergillus flavus, andAspergillus fumigatus induced variable toxic potential that was cell type, secondary metabolite type, and concentration dependent. Human colonic adenocarcinoma cells (Caco-2) showed less sensitivity than hepatocyte-derived cellular carcinoma cells (HuH-7), and in turn, the half-maximal inhibitory concentration (IC50) was variable. Also, the apo...

Could the Inflammatory Prognostic Index Predict the Efficacy of Regorafenib in Patients with Metastatic Colorectal Cancer?
ConclusionAmong the immune inflammation scores analyzed in mCRC patients receiving regorafenib, NLR and PNLR were the best predictor of recurrence, whereas IPI was the best predictor of long-term survival. After being confirmed by better designed controlled trials, IPI can be used to identify the group of patients who will benefit more from regorafenib treatment.
