Advocate of Lister's antiseptic techniques, promoter of anesthesia, professor of the first chair of gynaecology in Medical School of Paris, academician, successful politician, art collector, friend and lover of the famous, Samuel Pozzi lived a fascinating life. His book "Treatise of clinical and surgical gynaecology" published in 1890 became the gold standard in medical practice while his approach in the treatment of cervical cancer, including cases of pregnant women, remained in vogue for almost fifty years...

Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) is a systemic neoplastic disease that can present cutaneous symptoms and is usually treated with a systematic approach due to its extent. Due to its radiosensitivity, radiotherapy is considered one of its main treatments, for palliation and local control of the skin and mucosal lesions. The aim of this paper was to report the first case of KS treated by hemi-body electron irradiation protocol in Greece. A fractionated 40 Gy hemi-body electron irradiation was prescribed to a 60-year-old male patient with KS at his legs...

PURPOSE: As predictors of hematologic toxicity (HT) after palliative radiotherapy (RT) have been studied insufficiently, we explored predictors of leukopenia, neutropenia, and thrombocytopenia attributable to palliative RT. METHODS: We retrospectively assessed patients with various solid tumors who had received palliative RT at our institution. Excluded from our study were patients who had undergone chemotherapy from one month before to one month after the start of RT...

Konstantinos Laios, Marilita M Moschos
Antonio Scarpa (1752-1832) is known in the history of medicine as a distinguished anatomist and surgeon. Apart from his anatomical studies that established him and especially in clinical anatomy, he focused also his interest on ophthalmology, therefore he was considered as the "father of ophthalmology in Italy". His study on ocular cancer is of particular interest, because he not only reviewed older approaches on this issue enriching them with his own clinical observations but his study served as a bridge connecting the previous tradition to the scientific study of ocular cancer which began at the second third of 19th century...

PURPOSE: The occurrence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in Chinese cancer patients admitted to intensive care unit (ICU) for postoperative care is poorly characterized. This study was designed to investigate the incidence of VTE in this polulation and to evaluate the utility of the Caprini score in risk stratification. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of 2127 consecutive adult patients admitted to a 10-bed surgical ICU in a tertiary care academic hospital during a 4-year period (January 1,2013 to December 31,2016)...

PURPOSE: Home parenteral nutrition (HPN) has been proposed as the treatment of choice in patients suffering from intestinal failure (IF) and has been claimed to improve survival and quality of life either in patients with benign disorders or even in those with malignancies. The purpose of the present analysis was to report characteristics and outcomes of adult patients with IF receiving HPN in Greece. METHODS: Patients that received HPN between 2011 and 2017 were included in this retrospective analysis...

PURPOSE: Variants in DNA repair genes may alter the repair mechanisms that make the persons vulnerable to DNA damage. These polymorphic variants in the DNA repair pathway genes, such as XRCC1, have been associated with susceptibility of several types of cancer including thyroid cancer. This study was designed to explore the link between XRCC1 polymorphisms and modulation of thyroid cancer risk. METHODS: Our study consisted of 456 thyroid cancer patients and 400 controls...

PURPOSE: Distinction of thyroid neoplasms that include papillary carcinoma (PC) and follicular carcinoma (FC) from benign thyroid neoplasms can be performed successfully by histopathologic examination in most of the cases. However, in some cases it may be difficult to distinct PC and FC as well as FC and follicular adenoma (FA) and also FA and the dominant nodule of multinodular goiter (MNG) histopathologically. In this study, we aimed to determine the role of expression of the human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) in the distinction of thyroid neoplasms and its relation with prognostic factors by immunohistochemical methods...

PURPOSE: Skin cancer is one of the cancers responsible for significant morbidity and mortality across the globe. The treatment options for skin cancer are limited and associated with significant toxicity. Therefore, researches have been directed towards exploring molecules that could prove beneficial in the treatment of this disease. Lactucopicrin is an important sesquiterpene lactone with important pharmacological potential. METHODS: In the present study the anticancer effects of lactucopicrin against human skin SKMEL-5 cancer cell line were investigated...

PURPOSE: Melanoma is an aggressive form of human cancer with limited treatment options currently available. The present study was aimed to evaluate the anticancer activity of kaempferol (KAM) against the human malignant melanoma A375 cell line along with evaluation of its effects on apoptosis, cell cycle, cell migration and m-TOR/PI3K/AKT pathway. METHODS: Effects on cell viability were assessed by MTT assay while clonogenic assay measured the effects of KAM on colony formation...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of preoperative chemotherapy on the event-free survival (EFS) and overall survival (OS) of Wilms' tumor in children, and to provide a basis for further improvement of clinical therapeutic effect and research level. METHODS: Relevant studies before July 2017 were retrieved from PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science and other databases, and two evaluators were responsible independently for the studies' selection, data extraction and cross-checking according to the inclusion and exclusion criteria...

PURPOSE: Plants produce a diversity of molecular scaffolds with tremendous pharmacological potential. In the present study we evaluated the anticancer activity of the plant-derived natural product sugiol. We also evaluated its effects on apoptosis-related key proteins, cell cycle phase distribution, reactive oxygen species (ROS) and mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP). METHODS: Cell viability was evaluated by MTT assay while clonogenic assay was done to determine the effects of sugiol on the cancer cell colony formation...

Prostate cancer is the most frequently diagnosed malignancy in men and the second major reason of cancer death in males. Currently, there are no viable options available for the treatment of advanced-stage prostate cancer. Against this backdrop, the present study aimed to study the anticancer effect of panaxatriol against prostate DU-15 cancer cells. METHODS: MTT cell viability assay evaluated the effects of the drug on cell cytotoxicity, while clonogenic assay was used to assess the effects on colony formation in DU-15 cells...
