At the end of the 19th century, in an attempt to define cancer's etiology, scientists considered that cancer was mainly affecting the white race and the temperate zone countries. In their turn, epidemiological studies held in the early 20th century sustained the dogma of cancer's racial distribution, targeting and stigmatizing ethnic groups.

PURPOSE: Cancer is a long process that leads the organism to death and is associated with the normal cells acquiring the ability to divide permanently. Nowadays, the use of natural products in cancer therapy has a great importance. In addition, working with plants that are endemic to Turkey and determining the biological activities of these plant extracts, is extremely important due to the potential for new drug development. There is no comparative study available in the literature on the antitumor effects of Colchicum sanguicolle, a new found species of the genus Colchicum in Turkey, Crateagus microphylla, of the genus Crateagus and Centaurea antiochia of the genus Centaurea...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of whole-course pain intervention on health-related quality of life (QoL) for patients after esophagectomy. METHODS: A retrospecitve analysis was performed on 81 patients who were enrolled as conventional care group (control group with 40 cases) and whole-course pain intervention group (observation group with 41 cases) respectively af?ter Sweet, Ivor-Lewis and McKeown esophagectomy between January 2011 and December 2013...

PURPOSE: To analyze the demand for support among cancer patients subjected to systemic treatment or radiotherapy. METHODS: The study included 321 cancer patients treated in three Polish oncology centers. More than 73% of the responders were diagnosed with cancer not earlier than a year prior to the study. Most of the patients received chemotherapy (74.8%); nearly a half of the subjects (46.7%) were subjected to radiotherapy and every tenth person received hormonal therapy...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to examine whether cytomegalovirus (CMV) is present in different histological types of salivary gland cancer (SGC) by detecting CMV immediate-early (IE) and early gene products, and to determine the presence of its association with the overexpression of interleukin (IL)-6. METHODS: Immunohistochemical analysis of 92 cases of different histological types of SGC was performed to determine the presence of IL-6 and CMV antigen and its intensity in tumor tissue...

PURPOSE: Delaying adjuvant chemotherapy initiation >8 weeks after radical lobectomy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) adversely affects overall survival. The effect of video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy (VATS) on adjuvant chemotherapy initiation is yet unclear. This study aimed to determine if using VATS for NSCLC resection affected the timing of adjuvant chemotherapy and oncological outcomes. METHODS: Patients who underwent radical lobectomy for pathological stage II or IIIA NSCLC and received adjuvant chemotherapy between January 2009 and January 2016 were identified from a prospectively maintained lung cancer database...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to study the role of TFPI-2 in bladder cancer and its relation with apoptosis. METHODS: Immunohistochemical (IHC) staining of TFPI- 2 and TUNEL were applied. By semiquantitative analysis of the IHC data, we compared the TFPI-2 expression with clinicopathological parameters of 24 bladder cancer samples. TUNEL assay was used to study the apoptotic level of bladder cancer cells. Also, quantitative PCR and Western blot were used to confirm IHC results...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the therapeutic efficacy and toxicity of hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) plus high-frequency diathermic therapy (HFDT) followed by intravenous chemotherapy vs intravenous chemotherapy alone for adjuvant treatment of postoperative gastrointestinal neoplasms. METHODS: Fifty-two gastrointestinal carcinoma patients who were radically operated were enrolled and divided into the treatment group and the control group. In the treatment group, 25 patients were treated with combination of HIPEC+HFDT and subsequent intravenous chemotherapy, while in the control group 27 patients received intravenous chemotherapy alone...

PURPOSE: To identify differential pathways between papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) patients and normal controls utilizing a novel method which combined pathway with co-expression network. METHODS: The proposed method included three steps. In the first step, we conducted pretreatments for background pathways and gained representative pathways in PTC. Subsequently, a co-expression network for representative pathways was constructed using empirical Bayes (EB) approach to assign a weight value for each pathway...

PURPOSE: In contrast to other thyroid carcinomas it is difficult to establish a correct preoperative diagnosis for oxyphile carcinoma of the thyroid. In this study we looked for predictive malignancy factors in order to enable surgeons to choose operative treatment and to perform an adequate operation for each patient with an oxyphile neoplasm of the thyroid. METHODS: In this retrospective study we have analyzed the medical files of all patients with oxyphile tumors of the thyroid operated between 1999 and 2008 in our institution...

PURPOSE: This study was conducted to analyze the predictive value of circulating tumor cells (CTC) expressing thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1) on the recurrence and survival rates of endometrial carcinoma patients treated with laparoscopic surgery. METHODS: 78 patients were recruited, diagnosed with endometrial carcinoma and measured CTC expressing TTF-1 using flow cytometry in blood and tissues. Then, the patients were distributed into TTF-1-positive (N=42) and -negative (N=36) groups...
