Field carcinogenesis and biological significance of the potential of the bystander effect: carcinogenesis, therapeutic response, and tissue regeneration
AbstractThe “bystander effect” is a transmission phenomenon mediating communication from target to non-target cells, as well as cell-to-cell interactions between neighboring and distantly located cells. In this narrative review, we describe the fundamental and clinical significance of the bystander effect w ith respect to cell-to-cell interactions in carcinogenesis, therapeutic response, and tissue regeneration. In carcinogenesis, the bystander effect mediates communications between tumor microenvironments and non-malignant epithelial cells and has been suggested to impact heterogeneous tumorigenic cel ls in tumors and...

Tele-assessment of bandwidth limitation for remote robotics surgery
ConclusionOur findings provide evidence that RRS using hinotori ™ requires a CB ≥ 150 Mbps. We also found that when there is insufficient CB, RRS can be continued by compressing the image. (Source: Surgery Today)
