The prevalence of cancer in antiquity is rather an unknown scientific field. Nevertheless, During the 5th century BC, Hippocrates and his followers, studied thoroughly this fatal disease and proposed surgical techniques and palliative drugs to confront and treat the malignant tumors caused by the black bile (the 4 humors theory). Inside Corpus Hippocraticum, nasal cancer was mentioned, alongside with its treatment. Local surgical excision, cautherization, drugs to relief the pain and face possible metastases combined with a possible pessary technique and endotracheal intubation, have been employed by the physicians of the era...

PURPOSE: To explore the association between HOTAIR rs4759314 and cancer risk. METHODS: A comprehensive online search was conducted using PubMed, EMBASE, and CNKI databases to identify relevant studies. The case-control studies related to HOTAIR rs4759314 polymorphism and cancer risk were selected according to the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The retrieval time was until November 2015. After extracting the basic data information and performing an evaluation of the quality of the literature, the meta-analysis was performed using STATA 12...

George P Stathopoulos, Dimitrios Trafalis, Maria Kaparelou
PURPOSE: Bone metastases in breast cancer are quite common, and some patients may have no other site of metastasis. An effective treatment is often endocrine agents administration (tamoxifen or antiaromatases), given mainly to postmenopausal women. Radiation treatment is also effective, although difficult to perform in cases of extensive skeletal disease. Chemotherapy does not help. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of high-dose tamoxifen in female patients with breast cancer and bone metastasis...

PURPOSE: Health-care professionals may serve as attachment figures, nevertheless little research has been made in the palliative context. The psychometric properties of the brief ECR-M16 in Greek cancer patients were explored. METHODS: The ECR-M16 was translated into Greek (G-ECR-M16), and was administered to 100 patients before starting palliative care and 7 days later to test its stability. Patients (N=35) also completed the EORTC QLQ-C30 scales. RESULTS: Cronbach's alphas for the discomfort for closeness, anxiety and avoidance scales were 0...

PURPOSE: No comprehensive study of cancer incidence and mortality exists in Iran. This study aimed to evaluate the incidence, mortality and epidemiological aspects of cancers in our country. METHODS: In this study, information of cancer incidence and mortality in Iran was retrieved from International Cancer Registry data and reported by numbers, crude and standardized incidence and mortality rates. Cancer incidence and mortality in Iran were mapped and compared with neighboring countries and the world...

PURPOSE: Several studies have suggested that patients with acromegaly have an increased risk of thyroid, colorectal, breast and prostate cancers. In this study we determined the prevalence of malignant neoplasms in patients with acromegaly. METHODS: Cancer risk was evaluated in a cohort of 110 patients (M/F 48/62, age 58.63±13.8 years, range 30-86) with acromegaly. Mean age at diagnosis of acromegaly was 46.37±13.11 years. Mean period of time since diagnosis of acromegaly was 12...

PURPOSE: Although commonly used for the treatment of locally advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) concomitant radio-chemotherapy (RT-CT) with weekly cisplatin has not been definitely studied. We conducted a single centre retrospective study with the aim to evaluate efficacy and acute toxicity of definitive concomitant RT-CT with 40 mg/m(2) weekly cisplatin in patients with locally advanced HNSCC with a particular emphasis on RT modality (conventional or accelerated) and dose of cisplatin delivered...

PURPOSE: The tumor microenvironment in ovarian cancer (OC) seems to play an important role, and besides tumor cells, biomarkers can derive from endothelial cells. We investigated CDCP1 and ADAM12 expression in relation with other clinical and pathological characteristics in OC patients. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated patient files between 2006-2011. A histochemical score was developed to evaluate tumor staining, the microvessel density (MVD), and stromal expression patterns for both ADAM12 and CDCP1...

PURPOSE: The repressor element 1 (RE-1) silencing transcription factor (REST) is a transcription factor which represses the expression of neuronal differentiation-related genes including SYN1 gene. CoREST, encoded by RCOR1 gene, binds to the REST protein for remodeling of chromatin structure. Although there is a relation among REST, RCOR1, and SYN1 genes, the role of these genes in glioma tumors is still unclear. In this study, expressions of REST, RCOR1, and SYN1 genes were detected in primary cultures derived from tumor samples of diffuse astrocytoma (DA), anaplastic oligodendroglioma (AO), and glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) cases...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical status, prognostic factors and treatment modalities affecting survival in patients with brain metastasis. We aimed to evaluate the whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT) outcomes of patients with brain metastasis in our center. METHODS: Clinical data of 315 patients referred to our center between 2004 and 2014 with metastatic brain cancers were collected and analysed for possible relationships between survival time, age, gender, Karnofsky performance status (KPS), recursive partitioning analysis (RPA), primary tumor, number of brain lesions, surgery, radiation therapy scheme, extracranial metastatic status and primary disease control status...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the use of the 64-slice spiral computed tomography (CT) with perfusion-weighted imaging in the early diagnosis of ground-glass opacity lung cancers. METHODS: 412 patients with ground-glass opacities found by conventional CT scan in our hospital, and deemed highly suspected of being lung cancers, were enrolled in the study between February of 2012 and February of 2015. Sixty four-slice spiral CTs with perfusion-weighted imaging were carried out on all patients, and the latest nodular contrast analysis software, MPR2D, 3D reconstruction technology, MIP technology and perfusion scanning technology were used to analyze lesion types, density, blood supply, peripheral signals, doubling time and tissue perfusion characteristics...

PURPOSE: Resveratrol, a phytochemical known for its anti- oxidative properties has been explored worldwide for anticancer potential. We performed this systematic review and meta-analysis in order to register the efficacy of resveratrol against lung carcinogenesis. METHODS: We searched PubMed for preclinical studies reporting efficacy of resveratrol alone or in combination with drugs like curcumin, cisplatin etc. against lung carcinogenesis. RESULTS: The primary outcome of eligible studies included change in overall tumor incidence as well as tumor size...

PURPOSE: Galectins are modulators of many processes critical for tumor progression and metastasis but their clinical significance is still unclear. The objective of this study was to analyze the clinical significance of Galectin-1 and Galectin-3 in the tissue and sera of patients with colorectal carcinoma (CRC). Examined were also their association with serum CEA, IL-17 and IL-23 in CRC patients. METHODS: One hundred and twenty patients with CRC were included in this study...

PURPOSE: We analyzed the genotype and allele frequency of variable number tandem repeats (VNTR)-thymidylate synthase (TS) and its relationship with the disease evolution in colon cancer patients. METHODS: We selected 24 paraffin-embedded colon cancer tissue samples from Mexican patients who received a 5-fluorouracil (5-FU)-based chemotherapy regimen. Tumor tissue was digested with proteinase K and genomic DNA was isolated by the standard method with phenol-chloroform extraction...

PURPOSE: Although the albumin to globulin ratio (AGR) has been proven to be a prognostic factor in several cancers, no studies have assessed its prognostic significance in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the prognostic value of the pretreatment AGR in the survival in HCC patients. METHODS: 150 patients were enrolled, who were confirmed of HCC from October 2008 to December 2012 in Nanfang Hospital of Southern Medical University...
