For centuries several hypotheses were formulated on cancer's pathogenesis such as contagiousness, melancholy, heredity and sexuality. In the 18th and 19th century, despite the advent of medical thought and practice, cancer was considered an incurable and contagious disease. Hospitals were refusing to treat cancer patients while the social stigma which followed the disease made primordial the need for the establishment of special institutions. In our article we will present the cancer asylums which counterbalanced the prejudices of the time and contributed to the establishment of modern cancer hospitals...

PURPOSE: Follicle-stimulating hormone receptors (FSHR) have been reported in ovarian cancer and prostate cancer cells, but recent studies have highlighted their presence in the endothelium of blood vessels belonging to multiple neoplasias. Current research attempts to determine the role of FSHR in neoplastic proliferation and possible therapeutic or diagnostic implications. This paper aimed to analyze articles that have revealed the presence and/or role of FSHR in various neoplasms in humans...

PURPOSE: Research indicates the heightened need of cancer patients to return to work, which would be beneficial for their emotional/mental health and well-being. The major aim of this study was to identify the overall effect of losing the job upon different dimensions of well-being, and possible gender differences related to this influence. METHODS: A sample of 800 Romanian cancer patients was screened in 2014 (461 female and 338 male). RESULTS: Our results indicate that losing one's job after being diagnosed with cancer affects male more than female patients on the physical, emotional, and functional dimensions of well-being...

PURPOSE: The combination of cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) has been used as locoregional treatment in selected patients with peritoneal malignancy. The purpose of this study was to report on the outcomes of patients undergoing hepatobiliary and pancreatic procedures during CRS and HIPEC. METHODS: A prospectively maintained database was used to identify patients that underwent hepatobilliary and/or pancreatic procedures during CRS and HIPEC...

PURPOSE: To analyze the role of a multidisciplinary team (MDT) in the decision-making process in clinical stage one (CS I) testicular cancer (TC). METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated data on 115 consecutive patients with CS I TC (excluding stage IS) who were referred to the Department of Oncology, University Hospital of Split, Croatia, from 2003 to 2012. Fifty-six patients (48.7%) were referred between 2003 and 2007, before the introduction of the MDT and 59 patients (51...

PURPOSE: To investigate the relationship between Hepcidin and iron metabolism, and cell proliferation, migration, and apoptosis in prostate cancer cells. METHODS: PC3 prostate cancer cells were cultured in vitro and divided into the control group, Hepcidin overexpression group, and Hepcidin low expression group. Prostate specific antigen (PSA) and soluble transferrin receptor (sTfR) levels were measured by ELISA. The levels of the Hepcidin receptor membrane transporter, Ferroportin, were determined by Western blot...

PURPOSE: Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the most common malignant kidney tumor in adults. Dysregulation of the cell cycle can lead to cancer development. In this study, the mitosis-associated cyclin A and p16, a negative controller, were investigated as potential key points in the RCC development. METHODS: This retrospective study included 74 patients with RCC. The expression of cyclin A and p16 and their correlation to histopathological parameters (TNM stage, histological subtype, nuclear grade, tumor size), gender, age, and clinical outcome were studied and analyzed...

PURPOSE: To investigate the expression and relevant clinical and pathological significance of AT-rich interactive domaincontaining protein 1A (ARID1A) mRNA in endometriosis-associated ovarian cancer. METHODS: The clinical and pathological data of 63 patients with ovarian clear cell carcinoma (OCCC) and of 43 patients with ovarian endometrioid adenocarcinoma (OEAC) were collected. The expression of ARID1A-encoded protein, baf250a, in ovarian cancer tissues was detected using immunohistochemistry...

PURPOSE: The purpose of the present study was the optimization of dose calculation for intracranial stereotactic radiosurgery. METHODS: We evaluated the Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) analysis as a novel optimization technique. Our approach to dose distribution optimization was to recover estimates of minibeams weights from well-defined provisional dose matrices. The dose delivered by a set of minibeams is formulated as a matrix equation. We studied the influence of dose matrix and voxel dimensions on the conditioning of stereotactic radiotherapy inverse problem...

Considering the results of a previous study in which 2321 regular heroin addicts who died without having stopped taking the drug since they had started - from various causes but none from cancer, may mean something. Our first thought was: Can't we hypothesize, reinforcing our previous view that heroin is a "barrier" against cancer and as the user gets in the methadone program he/she lacks the "barrier" and therefore is liable to develop cancer? We have already reported that the amount of blood phosphorus in heroin addicted is significantly lower than in healthy ones...

PURPOSE: S100B protein is currently used as an immunohistochemistry marker to confirm melanoma diagnosis in biopsy specimens. Moreover, accumulating evidence supports its potential use as a tumor biomarker in blood. This study aimed to explore the potential uses of serum S100B protein as a biomarker in melanoma patients. METHODS: From 2012 to 2015, 107 sequential patients were diagnosed and treated for melanoma. All patients were tested for serum S100B and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) at diagnosis and during their regular follow-up...

PURPOSE: The Romanian Patient Access Program (Ro-PAP, CA 184-427), part of the European Expanded Access Program (EAP), was developed to evaluate the effectiveness and safety profile ipilimumab in previously treated patients with advanced melanoma (unresectable or metastatic melanoma). The objective of our retrospective observational study of patients included in this program was to provide data recorded in real-life settings. METHODS: We analysed 89 patients enrolled in Ro-PAP, CA 184-427 (54 men and 35 women) aged between 29 and 89 years...
