64Cu and 67Cu radionuclide to diagnose and treat of cancer: Experimental and theoretical Production yields

Experimental and theoretical Production yields. AoS

As the number of patients suffering from different cancers has been increased, researchers have evaluated several ways to diagnose and treat these abnormalities. In this regard, application of radionuclides is an interesting option through which some cancers

Thyroid hormone ratio and clinical outcome: results from the Toreador Study

Overall survival of metastatic colon rectal cancer patients. AoS

From a physiopathological point of view patients with advanced solid cancer and neoplastic cachexia might be associated, in some way, with frail older patients, a well-known and extensively described multi-factorial clinical condition, characterized by increased catabolism and

An integrated genomics approach for identifying breast cancer patients with highly aggressive tumors

An integrated genomics approach for identifying breast cancer patients. AoS

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women with over 2 million new cases worldwide in 2018. Three kinds of receptors are usually found on the surface of breast cancer cells: a receptor for female hormone

What do patients and healthcare professionals “tweet” about brachytherapy?

Word Cloud of Patient Tweets about Brachytherapy. Atlas of Science

Many patients post on Twitter about their healthcare experiences. Patients with cancer are especially active on Twitter, and studies have found that sharing experiences online can reduce feelings of isolation. Healthcare professionals also frequently post on Twitter.

FLYWCH1 is a novel transcriptional repressor for the cancer-causing Beta-catenin

There is no doubt that cancer is a devastating disease. However, restraining the cancerous cells from spreading throughout the body (invasion) will make it easier to control and possibly cure cancer. β-catenin is one of the proteins

More Paleolithic-like lifestyles and diets associated with lower colorectal cancer risk

More Paleolithic-like lifestyles and diets associated with lower colorectal cancer risk. Atlas of Science

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among women and men combined in the United States. CRC incidence (i.e., the rate of new diagnoses) varies about 20-fold across countries. The incidence among immigrants

Harbinger of increased prostate cancer risk: The effect of decreased prostate cancer screening

Harbinger of Increased Prostate Cancer Risk. Atlas of Science

Since the introduction of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) as a blood test in 1992, the number of men diagnosed with prostate cancer increased dramatically. Because PSA detects men who are asymptomatic two things occurred. First, many of the

The RAS mRNA G-quadruplex: making undruggable cancer targets druggable

The RAS mRNA G-quadruplex. AoS

In many cancers, RAS proteins are constitutively activated by their oncogenic mutations or activation of their upstream molecules. RAS proteins play a central role in cancer cell malignancy, and drugs that target RAS are therefore believed to

Compressed ultrasound imaging: finding tumors with a few transducers

Compressed Ultrasound Imaging with Holey Cavities. AoS

Currently, ultrasound imaging is predominantly done by a probe that possesses many transducers, which are small devices that transmit, and then receive, acoustic waves. Decreasing the number of transducers, while maintaining image quality, is surely a desirable

2nd International Women Health and Breast Cancer Conference

Following the success of i-Women Health 2019, we welcome you to the 2nd International Women Health and Breast Cancer Conference in London during August 13-14, 2020. i-Women Health 2020 provides an international forum for academicians, practitioners, health

How to stain E-selectin ligands in tumor tissue

How to stain E-selectin ligands in tumor tissue

Cancer affects millions of people around the world. Nowadays they have more chances to survive, but still, the most frightful scenario are metastases. Few patients with metastases survive, and there is an unmet clinical need for new

Chemical toxicity study of some Algerian medicinal plants

About 65 to 80% of the world’s population use traditional medicine for their primary health WHO according to the WHO report. However, the use of herbal medicines has come under scrutiny due to their perceived long-term toxicity

The voltage-gated potassium channel, Kv1.3, at the crossroads of glial functions in glioma

The voltage-gated potassium channel, Kv1.3, at the crossroads of glial functions in glioma

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is one of the most lethal cancers in adult humans, with a frequency of 6:100.000 people. Despite the current three-modality therapy, which includes surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, the clinical outcome of GBM patients remains

How cancer cells communicate with nervous and immune systems

In the last decade, studies have shown that cancer cells can influence their environment and bi-directionally communicate with other systems including immune and nervous systems. The neuro-immune interaction is a key player in influencing cancer development and

Can the heart get cancer? Quite rare, but yes

Can the heart get cancer

To many, the heart seems as an unusual location for cancer. In fact, most tumors that affect the heart are metastatic in origin (start in other organs and disseminate to the heart). Primary cardiac tumors (tumors that

LMO1 regulates a novel oncogenic pathway druggable for neuroblastoma

LMO1 regulates a novel oncogenic pathway druggable for neuroblastoma

Neuroblastoma (NB) is derived from neural crest cells and its main developing sites are adrenal gland and sympathetic ganglions. It is the most common extracranial solid tumor in childhood, accounting for more than 7% of malignancies in

Keeping a clean house to suppress HER2+ breast tumor growth

Keeping a clean house to suppress HER2+ breast tumor growth

Autophagy (self-eating) is a process used by normal cells to keep a “clean house”. It degrades abnormal or damaged proteins and organelles, helps to fight infections and also provides energy during periods of fasting or exercise. Besides
