In 2008, we published the first set of guidelines for standardizing research in autophagy. Since then, this topic has received increasing attention, and many scientists have entered the field. Our knowledge base and relevant new technologies have…

Background Cancer diagnoses pose challenges to adolescents' and young adults' (AYA) physical, mental, and emotional health, and developmental tasks. In order for AYAs, caregivers, clinicians, and other collaborators to optimize health outcomes…

A young female with pulmonary congestion suspected to be secondary to mitral valve disease with left atrial appendage thrombus was given therapy for heart failure and anticoagulation. Subsequent multimodality imaging with echocardiography and…

The purpose of this review is to briefly summarize the roles of alcohol (ethanol) and related compounds in promoting cancer and inflammatory injury in many tissues. Long-term chronic heavy alcohol exposure is known to increase the chances of…

In this study, surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) was used to investigate the spectral characteristics of blood serum for the purpose of diagnosing stomach diseases. SERS spectral data was collected from patients with atrophic gastritis, both…

Background and Objectives: The degradation in robotic skills that occurs during periods of robotic surgical inactivity in newly trained surgeons was measured. The role of animate training in robotic skill was also assessed. Methods: Robotically naive…

Vulvar cancer is relatively rare and accounts for 3% to 5% of all gynecologic malignancies. This malignancy usually is diagnosed in the elderly population, with the mean age in the late sixties, although it can be diagnosed in any age group. The…

Folate is widely used as a target ligand for tumor cells, and poly (L-aspartic acid)-b-poly-(L-phenylalanine) (PAA-PPA) is a biodegradable material with low immunogenicity and toxicity. In this study, to enhance the targeting effect,…

Mammography is an important surveillance tool for detecting ipsilateral breast tumor recurrence (IBTR) after BCS. Although IBTR is rare in the first 2 years, various organizations have established protocols for postoperative mammographic…

BACKGROUND: Advanced breast biopsy instrumentation is a recently designed alternative to large-core stereotactic and open needle localized breast biopsies. This minimally invasive technique uses digital stereotactic imaging to perform excisional…

PURPOSE: High-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy boost in prostate cancer allows dose escalation and delivery of higher biologically effective dose (BED). We evaluated the outcomes of intensitymodulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and HDR boost in a…

A recombinant baculovirus containing the human cytochrome P450 (CYP) 1A1 cDNA was constructed and used to express CYP1A1 in Spodoptera frugiperda (SF9) insect cells (0.14+/-0.04 nmol/mg protein, 53+/-14 nmol/liter, N=30). The enzyme represented…

BACKGROUNDHotspot mutations in BRAF and NRAS are the most common somatic events in patients with melanoma. These mutations occur at highly conserved residues, but include several different substitutions. To determine whether specific mutations are…

Background. A causal relationship between antigenic conditions and multiple myeloma was suggested by case reports. Although controlled studies identified associations with individual conditions, they failed to give overall support to the hypothesis.…

We hypothesized that loss of interpersonal, financial and work resources would mediate the relationship between physical and sexual abuse, cancer-related Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms, noncancer-related PTSD symptoms and depressive…

Background: Primary fallopian tube carcinoma (FTC) is an aggressive but rare tumor. Worldwide, more than 1,500 cases have been published, and about 20 new cases are added every year. isolated fallopian tube torsion (IFTT) is an unusual and uncommon…

Six squamous cell carcinomas of the vulva (SCV) were karyotyped in short-term culture and in early passages as established cell lines. Each tumor was cytogenetically distinct, contained multiple chromosome rearrangements, and was karyotypically…

Objective: The purpose of this study was to test the feasibility of digital rectal fecal occult blood screening during pelvic examination. Study design: We reviewed the data for 232 consecutive women who underwent digital rectal fecal occult blood…

BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to assess which quality-of-life (QOL) line items on the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Ovarian (FACT-O) were associated with low QOL in women who were receiving chemotherapy for ovarian cancer.…

BackgroundFor most computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) problems involving prostate cancer detection via medical imaging data, the choice of classifier has been largely ad hoc, or been motivated by classifier comparison studies that have involved large…

`Deficiency of alkaline and acid DNase is a hallmark in all non-necrotic cancer cells in animals and humans. These enzymes are reactivated at early stages of cancer cell death by vitamin C (acid DNase) and vitamin K-3 (alkaline DNase). Moreover, the…

AGS1/RASD1 is a Ras-related protein identified as a dexamethasone-inducible cDNA and as a signal regulator in various functional and protein-interaction screens. As an initial approach to define the role of AGS1/RASD1 as a Ras-family member, we…

Human prostate cancer cells (DU145) implanted into nude mice are deficient in DNase activity. After administration of a vitamin C/vitamin K-3 combination, both alkaline DNase (DNase I) and acid DNase (DNase II) activities were detected in…

Background: Slipped capital femoral epiphysis is a poorly understood condition affecting adolescents. Prior studies have suggested that the etiology may be related to abnormal collagen in the growth plate cartilage, but we are not aware of any…

To determine the feasibility of a prototype device combining 3D-automated breast ultrasound (ABVS) and digital breast tomosynthesis in a single device to detect and characterize breast lesions. In this prospective feasibility study, the FUSION-X-US…
