BACKGROUND: The negative side effects of breast cancer treatments can include upper limb lymphoedema. The growing literature indicates that Nordic walking is an effective discipline against several disease symptoms. The aim of this study was to determine whether introduction to Nordic walking alone is effective against total body extracellular water and upper limb circumferences in breast cancer survivors compared to its combination with a series of specifically created exercises (i.e...

BACKGROUND: We hypothesized that, among the mechanisms of drug-resistance acquired by doxorubicin (DOX)-resistant breast cancer cells to maintain cell survival, ATP-dependent drug efflux pumps could be expressed in their mitochondrial membranes and this might limit the accumulation of DOX in this subcellular compartment in relation to mitochondrial ATP production. Methods/results Mitochondrial DOX accumulation: the presence and the activity of mitochondrial efflux pumps and their relationship with mitochondrial ATP synthesis were analyzed in DOX-resistant (MCF-7dox(R)) and -sensitive (MCF-7(S)) breast cancer cells...

Mediastinal radiation is commonly used to treat Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, lung and breast cancer. Cardiac complications after radiation therapy are well described, although rare. A large spectrum of injuries can occur, causing long term morbidity among survivors. We describe a case of post-actinic ascending aortic wall thickening that prevented saphenous vein proximal anastomosis and was successfully managed with aortic no-touch off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCAB), 25 years after radiation therapy for Hodgkin's lymphoma...

Paclitaxel (PTX) is one of the most frequently used anticancer agent for treating refractory ovarian cancer, metastatic breast cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. However, its oral administration is impeded by very low bioavailability (<5%) due to the P-glycopprotein (P-gp) efflux pump effect. This study investigated in vitro and in vivo P-gp inhibitory effects of adamantyl derivatives AC-603 and AC-786 in rats. Two adamantyl derivatives tested in this study increased the cytotoxicity of daunomycin (DNM) in P-gp overexpressed cell line by inhibiting P-gp efflux function...

: 205 Background: Indwelling pleural catheter (IPC) placement is an alternative to chemical pleurodesis for malignant pleural effusion (MPE), a complication of advanced cancer. In 1997 an IPC was approved which uses vacuum bottles (VB) for drainage (PleurX, Becton, Dickinson and Company, Franklin Lakes, NJ), and later another IPC system, which employs a manually operated vacuum pump (VP) for drainage (Aspira, Bard Access Systems, Salt Lake City, UT). Most studies comparing IPC versus chemical pleurodesis used the VB IPC...

BACKGROUND: Neratinib is in Phase 3 clinical trials but, unfortunately, the development of resistance is inevitable. Here, we investigated the effects of acquired neratinib resistance on cellular phenotype and the potential mechanism of this resistance. METHODS: Neratinib-resistant variants of HER2-positive breast cancer cells were developed and their cross-resistance investigated using cytotoxicity assays. Similarly, sensitivity of trastuzumab-resistant and lapatinib-resistant cells to neratinib was assessed...

The Ca(2+) -ATPases from the Sarco/endoplasmic reticulum (SERCA) are fundamental for maintaining intracellular [Ca(2+) ] homeostasis by pumping Ca(2+) into the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) of eukaryotic cells. SERCA enzymes are encoded by three different genes (ATP2A1-3), whose expression occurs in a tissue and development stage-specific manner. It has been reported alterations in the expression of SERCA2 and SERCA3 pumps in different types of cancer: oral, lung, colon, stomach, central nervous system, thyroid, breast, and prostate...

Immunohistochemistry (IHC), which has been used to detect antigens in cells of a tissue section using an immunoreaction between an antibody and an antigen, is a practical tool for identifying the type and stage of diseases in cancer diagnosis and scientific research. However, conventional IHC requires long, laborious process times and high costs. Although microfluidic IHC platforms have been developed to overcome these limitations, the application of microfluidic IHC in real-world environments is still limited due to the additional equipment needed to operate the microfluidic systems...

BACKGROUND: For very-low-birth-weight (VLBW) infants, breastfeeding may no longer be an immediate option. Mothers often turn to mechanically expressing their milk with a breast pump to provide their infants human milk. Research aim: This study aimed to describe mothers' experiences expressing milk for their VLBW infants in a level 3 neonatal intensive care unit. METHODS: Qualitative, phenomenological methods were used to better understand the milk expression experiences of 17 mothers of VLBW infants...

Background Our pilot study describes our initial experience to do a laser resection of lung metastases under video-assisted thoracoscopic control via a minithoracotomy. With this approach, if needed, mediastinal lymphadenectomy is also possible. Methods In this study, 15 patients (11 men and 4 women, mean age: 60 years) with resectable lung metastases of different solid primary tumors (colorectal cancer in seven patients, melanoma in three patients, renal cell carcinoma in two patients, and one each with oropharyngeal cancer, breast cancer, and seminoma) were included...

Photoacoustic computed tomography (PACT) holds great promise for biomedical imaging, but wide-spread implementation is impeded by the bulkiness of flash-lamp-pumped laser systems, which typically weigh between 50 - 200 kg, require continuous water cooling, and operate at a low repetition rate. Here, we demonstrate that compact lasers based on emerging diode technologies are well-suited for preclinical and clinical PACT. The diode-pumped laser used in this study had a miniature footprint (13 × 14 × 7 cm(3)), weighed only 1...

BACKGROUND: Multidrug resistance is a major obstacle in the successful therapy of breast cancer. Studies have proved that this kind of drug resistance happens in both human cancers and cultured cancer cell lines. Understanding the molecular mechanisms of drug resistance is important for the reasonable design and use of new treatment strategies to effectively confront cancers. RESULTS: In our study, ATP-binding cassette sub-family G member 2 (ABCG2), adenosine triphosphate (ATP) synthase and cytochrome c oxidase subunit VIc (COX6C) were over-expressed more in the MCF-7/MX cell line than in the normal MCF7 cell line...

OBJECTIVE: Milk ejection is a critical physiological process for successful lactation in humans and without it little milk can be removed. Individual milk ejection patterns have been shown to remain consistent between breasts at different lactation stages and using different vacuum patterns with an electric breast pump. Little is known about the milk ejection characteristics during the second lactation period in the same mother. The objective of this study was to examine milk ejection characteristics in the same woman over two lactations...

Most American mothers who produce human milk (HM) now pump in place of some or all feeding at the breast, and most American infants are now fed pumped HM. We aimed to investigate mothers' perceptions of, attitudes toward, and practices for pumping and providing pumped HM. Results related to pumping are reported here. We conducted in-depth, semi-structured interviews among a diverse sample of 20 mothers who pumped, following each from pregnancy through infant HM-feeding cessation up to 1 year postpartum. Data were analyzed using thematic analysis with Atlas...

Inducing lactation in the absence of pregnancy (nonpuerperal lactation) is not always successful and, in many cases, only partial breastfeeding is achieved. Different protocols have been described, but scientific evidence and research are lacking in this area. The authors describe the case of a woman with a history of a miscarriage, for whom the lactation induction process was so effective that she became a milk donor even before she received her adopted child. She had not previously used hormone treatment...

Human hepatoma cells may represent a valuable alternative to the use of human hepatocytes for studying hepatic drug transporters, which is now a regulatory issue during drug development. In the present work, we have characterized hepatic drug transporter expression, activity and regulation in human hepatoma HuH-7 cells, in order to determine the potential relevance of these cells for drug transport assays. HuH-7 cells displayed notable multidrug resistance-associated protein (MRP) activity, presumed to reflect expression of various hepatic MRPs, including MRP2...

Multidrug resistance is the expression of one or more efflux pumps, such as P-glycoprotein, and is a major obstacle in cancer therapy. The use of new potent and noncytotoxic efflux pump modulators, coadministered with antineoplastic agents, is an alternative approach for increasing the success rate of therapy regimes with different drug combinations. This report describes the isolation and structure elucidation of six new resin glycosides from moon vine seeds (Ipomoea alba) as potential mammalian multidrug-resistance-modifying agents...

The family of iodido Os(II) arene phenylazopyridine complexes [Os(η(6) -p-cym)(5-R(1) -pyridylazo-4-R(2) -phenyl))I](+) (where p-cym=para-cymene) exhibit potent sub-micromolar antiproliferative activity towards human cancer cells and are active in vivo. Their chemical behavior is distinct from that of cisplatin: they do not readily hydrolyze, nor bind to DNA bases. We report here a mechanism by which they are activated in cancer cells, involving release of the I(-) ligand in the presence of glutathione (GSH)...

Multidrug resistance (MDR) and adverse side effects are the major challenges facing cancer chemotherapy. Here, pH/protease dually responsive, sericin-coated mesoporous silica nanoparticles (SMSNs) for lysosomal delivery of doxorubicin (DOX) to overcome MDR and reduce systemic toxicity are reported. Sericin, a natural protein from silkworm cocoons, is coated onto MSNs as a gatekeeper via pH sensitive imine linkages. The sericin shell prevents the premature leakage of encapsulated DOX from MSNs in extracellular environment...
