Prognostic Value of Combined Detection of Serum IL6, YKL-40, and C-reactive Protein in Patients with Unresectable Pancreatic Cancer: Background:IL6 and YKL-40 (also known as chitinase 3-like 1 protein, CHI3L1) are produced by pancreatic cancer cells and macrophages and activate inflammation. C-reactive protein (CRP) is synthesized mainly in hepatic cells and primarily stimulated by IL6. The aim of this study was to determine the prognostic value of combined detection of serum IL6, YKL-40, and CRP...

The use of complementary medicine in palliative care
The use of complementary medicine in palliative care in France: an observational cross-sectional study: AbstractPurposePalliative care for cancer deals with physical, psychosocial, and spiritual issues faced by cancer patients, their families, communities, and healthcare providers. Research on complementary medicine (CM) use in France is limited despite high rates of reported CM use in other countries including by palliative patients. This study describes the use of CM by individuals receiving palliative...

Quality of life, swallowing and speech outcomes after oncological treatment for mobile tongue carcinoma
Quality of life, swallowing and speech outcomes after oncological treatment for mobile tongue carcinoma: AbstractBackgroundSurgical treatment of squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity (OSCC) has a high impact on patients' quality of life (QoL), as it variably affects their ability to speak, swallow and their social life. It is still debatable whether free flap tongue reconstruction has significant functional advantages over non-reconstructing techniques after tongue resection.MethodsA case-control...

Tuberculous Arthritis of the Knee with Rice Body Formation: A Report of a Rare Case
Tuberculous Arthritis of the Knee with Rice Body Formation: A Report of a Rare Case: In this report, we present the case of a 53-year-old man with rice body formation in the right knee caused by tuberculous arthritis (TB arthritis). The patient visited our hospital in January 2018 with a seven-month history of swelling and pain in the right knee. He had no previous history of tuberculosis, and the results of the routine laboratory tests were within normal limits; he also tested negative for rheumatoid...

Environmental PCB forensics: processes and issues
Environmental PCB forensics: processes and issues: AbstractPCB forensic science is the process of identifying the source(s) of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) at a site in the context of a legal proceeding to aid in identifying the party(s) responsible for the cost of environmental remediation. The PCB forensic scientist should assemble and examine all the evidence and then develop opinions about sources, discharges, deposition, fate, transport, environmental impact, and other issues at dispute...

Label Free Diagnosis for Colorectal Cancer through Coffee Ring Assisted Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy on Blood Serum
Label Free Diagnosis for Colorectal Cancer through Coffee Ring Assisted Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy on Blood Serum: AbstractSurface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) is garnering considerable attentions for the swift diagnosis of pathogens and abnormal biological status, i.e. cancers. In this work, a simple, fast and inexpensive optical sensing platform is developed by the design of SERS sampling and data analysis. The pre‐treatment of spectral measurement employed gold nanoparticle colloid...

Turbidimetric analysis of growth kinetics of bacteria in the laboratory environment using smartphone
Turbidimetric analysis of growth kinetics of bacteria in the laboratory environment using smartphone: AbstractFor different microbiological and pathological studies, it is often required to monitor the growth of bacteria in a cultured medium in the laboratory environment. UV–VIS spectrophotometer is commonly used to estimate the growth of bacterial cell population by measuring the absorbance at 600 nm over a period of time. Colony‐forming unit (CFU) is another approach which has been routinely performed...

Autofluorescence imaging for recurrence detection in skin cancer post‐operative scars
Autofluorescence imaging for recurrence detection in skin cancer post‐operative scars: AbstractThis clinical study is a first attempt to use autofluorescence for recurrence diagnosis of skin cancer in post‐operative scars. The proposed diagnostic parameter is based on a reduction in scar autofluorescence, evaluated in the green spectral channel. The validity of the method has been tested on 110 post‐operative scars from 56 patients suspected of non‐melanoma skin cancer, with 8 patients (13 scars)...

PAK1 silencing is synthetic lethal with CDK4/6 inhibition in gastric cancer cells via regulating PDK1 expression
PAK1 silencing is synthetic lethal with CDK4/6 inhibition in gastric cancer cells via regulating PDK1 expression: AbstractGastric cancer (GC) is one of the most common malignancies worldwide. The prognosis of GC is unsatisfied owning to widespread metastasis. P21-activated kinase 1 (PAK1), a member of serine/threonine kinases, is associated with the progression of multiple types of human cancers. Here, we demonstrated that CDK4/6 inhibitor reduced GC cell viability and decreased PAK1 expression....

Biased agonists at the human Y 1 receptor lead to prolonged membrane residency and extended receptor G protein interaction
Biased agonists at the human Y 1 receptor lead to prolonged membrane residency and extended receptor G protein interaction: AbstractFunctionally selective ligands to address specific cellular responses downstream of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) open up new possibilities for therapeutics. We designed and characterized novel subtype- and pathway-selective ligands. Substitution of position Q34 of neuropeptide Y to glycine (G34-NPY) results in unprecedented selectivity over all other YR subtypes....
