PURPOSE: Survivin is thought to play an important role in carcinogenesis and is found to be associated with poor clinical outcome in various malignancies. Gene -31 G/C polymorphism has been identified as a risk factor for the development of several types of tumors. The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between survivin gene promoter -31C/G polymorphism and urothelial carcinoma (UC) risk in Serbian population and to compare the different expressions of survivin in UC of different disease stages, histological grades and tumor location in the upper or lower urinary tract...

PURPOSE: The current study was designed to investigate the primary efficacy of esophageal irradiation stents coated with 125I particles in the treatment of elderly patients with advanced esophageal cancer. METHODS: Forty-three elderly patients with advanced esophageal cancer were treated with esophageal stents in the First Affiliated Hospital of Xinxiang Medical University between September 2009 and December 2010. Patients were randomly divided into group A (N=18), treated with irradiation stents, and group B (N=25), treated with ordinary stents...

PURPOSE: SOX5 plays important roles in various kinds of cancers. However, the expression and roles of SOX5 in osteosarcoma (OS) have not been investigated well. In the present study we aimed to investigate the mechanism of SOX5 in OS. METHODS: OS and adjacent non-cancerous specimens were obtained from patients with OS. PCR was applied to detect SOX5 mRNA. Then human OS cell lines (U2OS, SoSP-M, SoSP-9607, and MG-63) and one immortalized normal osteoblast hFOB1.19 were investigated...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the short-term outcomes of patients of pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) of appendiceal origin treated with cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) at two tertiary Indian centers. METHODS: Data was prospectively collected from January 2011 to January 2016. Palliative procedures were excluded. HIPEC was performed by the coliseum technique using either a mitomycin or oxaliplatin-based regimen. RESULTS: 77 procedures were performed on 71 patients...

PURPOSE: Withaferin A (WA) is a bioactive lactone, isolated from natural sources, mainly found in Withania somnifera, and was known to be highly effective against a variety of tumor cells both in vitro and in vivo. Accumulating experimental evidence suggests the involvement of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in WA-mediated cytotoxicity against cancer cells. Hence, the purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of WA in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells and also the role of ROC in WA-mediated cytotoxicity...

PURPOSE: Pancreatic surgery is still thought as a challenging field even for experienced hepatobilliary (HPB) surgeons and high volume tertiary centers. The purpose of this study was to present the results (mortality and morbidity) of pancreatic surgery in a high volume center, in operations performed solely by inexperienced surgeons (two 6th year residents and a HPB fellow) under the supervision of expert surgeons on the field. METHODS: Forty-one consecutive patients who underwent curative-intent pancreatic resection with a modified pancreaticojejunostomy between January 2010 and December 2014 at Asklepios Hospital Barmbek, Germany, were identified from our institutional computer-based database...

PURPOSE: The primary aim of this study was to evaluate the benefit of extended lymphadenectomy in pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) and to estimate its impact on long-term survival in patients with pancreatic head carcinoma. Secondary endpoints included perioperative mortality, postoperative morbidity and predictors of survival in patients undergoing standard versus extended lymphadenectomy for pancreatic head carcinoma. METHODS: From January 2007 to December 2010, 60 patients with potentially resectable pancreatic head carcinoma were operated using pylorus-preserving pancreatoduodenectomy (PPPD) at the Clinic for Digestive Surgery, Clinical Center of Serbia, Belgrade...

PURPOSE: To register the frequency of central and lateral lymph node metastases (LNMs) from papillary thyroid microcarcinomas (PTMCs), and to assess whether sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy of the lateral compartment is an accurate technique to select patients with true positive but clinically negative lymph nodes for one-time selective lateral neck dissection (sLND). The correlation between tumor characteristics (size, multifocality, bilaterality, capsular invasion) and LNMs was analyzed...

PURPOSE: To investigate the psychological effects of PAP smear and colposcopy performed simultaneously and receipt of abnormal tests' results on women's well-being and quality of life (QoL) using different relative questionnaires. METHODS: A prospective cohort study included 324 women with abnormal PAP smear result obtained at the primary care centers, requiring repeat smear test and colposcopy in our hospital. Questionnaires regarding the patient demographic characteristics, 7-point Likert scales which indicate concern about the smear and colposcopy results and risk of developing cervical cancer, Bek Anxiety Inventory (BAI), European QoL questionnaire - Euro QoL (EQ-5D) and visual analogue scale (EQ VAS) were used...

PURPOSE: Each year, 12.7 million people learn that they have cancer and 8.2 million people die of cancer worldwide. Cancer is a major public health issue which causes fundamental changes in the lives of patients and their families. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the lives of patients after diagnosis and determine the changes in their lifestyles. METHODS: Between September 2013 to December 2013, a questionnaire consisting of 22 questions was administered during a face to face interview to patients at 13 different Oncology Units in Turkey...

PURPOSE: The risk of breast cancer (BC) increases in parallel with increasing age. Despite the increased disease burden in elderly patients, there is still a great uncertainty regarding "how to manage" BC in aging-population. The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinicopathological features and treatment approaches of patients with BC aged 70 years or over. METHODS: The medical records of 4413 patients with BC followed between 1994-2015 were retrospectively analyzed...

PURPOSE: Breast cancer (BC) is the most common malignancy among women, while isolated operable liver metastases (LMs) from BC are very rare and occur in only 1-5% of the patients. Besides, positive steroid receptor (SR) status for oestrogen and/or progesterone is known as a factor which improves disease free survival (DFS) and overall survival (OS). The primary aim of this study was to examine the impact of SR status on DFS and OS after liver metastasectomy in female patients with primary BC...
