The role of infectious agents in the etiology of inflammatory diseases once believed to be non-infectious is increasingly being recognized. Many bacterial components in the indoor dust can evoke inflammatory lung diseases. Bacteria secrete nanometer-sized vesicles into the extracellular milieu, so-called extracellular vesicles (EVs). which are pathophysiologically related to inflammatory diseases. Microbiota compositions in the indoor dust revealed the presence of both gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria...

Laparoscopic minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (MIGS) for benign conditions results in decreased morbidity, and faster recovery, compared with laparotomy. Tissue fragmentation by electromechanical morcellation permits the removal of large specimens through small laparoscopic incisions. Since the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published its safety warning about the risk of power morcellators spreading cancer during fibroid surgery in 2014, power morcellation has become rare. MIGS for fibroids and other large tissue specimens has declined...

Thyroid carcinoma is one of the leading malignancies in Thailand increasingly prevalent in the female population. Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) cytology is a widely used diagnostic tool for evaluation of thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer. Thyroid FNA is a routine procedure universally performed in Thai hospitals by a variety of clinical specialists. Manual guidance is the first-line choice complemented by ultrasound assistance in selected cases. Despite national guidelines recommendations, the diagnostic criteria and terminology of the Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology (TBSRTC) was slowly adopted in the local settings...

Curing cancer by controlling the growth of the cancer cell is the objective of this paper. The growth of the cancer cell is analysed by the optimization programming. The algorithm is proposed for minimizing the rate of growth of the cancer cell. Hence the chaotic cancer became structured for the further research. This is an extended work of Warburg [1], where he defined the centre of the cancer cell, known by Warburg effect, but here we control the increasing radius of the cancer circle by the proposed Cancer Control Algorithm...

Introduction: Photochemical Internalization is a novel drug delivery technology for cancer treatment based on the principle of Photodynamic Treatment. Using a photosensitizer that locates in endocytic vesicles membranes of tumor cells, Photochemical internalization enables cytosolic release of endocytosed antitumor agents in a site-specific manner. The purpose of the present in-vitro study was to explore whether Photochemical Internalization is able to enhance the efficacy of Ranpirnase, a cytotoxic amphibian ribonuclease, for eradication of squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck...

G-quadruplex structures formed in telomeres and proto-oncogene represent a potentially useful target for anticancer drugs. Stabilization of this arrangement may inhibit the further action of different enzymes involved in cancer cell immortalization. In present work structure based drug design and synthesis was carried out on series of meso-substituted porphyrin analogues. The interaction of porphyrin derivatives with G-quadruplex DNA has been explored by virtual screening procedure. Some of the potential binding agents were then synthesized and evaluated in-vitro by MTT and PCR stop assay...

Accumulating evidence has suggested that the dysregulation of miRNAs is an important factor in the pathogenesis of lung cancer. Here, we demonstrate that miR-335 expression is reduced in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) tumors relative to non-cancerous adjacent tissues, whilst the expression of Tra2β is increased. In addition, clinical data revealed that the increased Tra2β and decreased miR-335 expression observed in NSCLC cells was associated with poor patient survival rates. In-vitro experimentation showed that the overexpression of miR-335 inhibited the growth, invasion and migration capabilities of A459 lung cancer cells, by targeting Tra2β...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Doxorubicin (DOX) is an effective cancer therapeutic agent but causes therapy-limiting cardiotoxicity. The effects of DOX and its metabolite doxorubicinol (DOXL) on individual channels have been well characterised in isolation. However, it is unknown how the action and interaction of affected channels combine to generate the phenotypic cardiotoxic outcome. We sought to develop an in silico model that links drug effects on channels to action potential duration (APD) and intracellular Ca(2+) concentration in order to address this gap in knowledge...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Several anti-angiogenic cancer drugs that inhibit VEGF receptor (VEGFR) signalling for efficacy are associated with a 15-60% incidence of hypertension. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) that have off-target activity at VEGFR-2 may also cause blood pressure elevation as an undesirable side effect. Therefore, the ability to translate VEGFR-2 off-target potency into blood pressure elevation would be useful in development of novel TKIs. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH: We sought to quantify the relationship between VEGFR-2 inhibition and blood pressure elevation for a range of kinase inhibitors...
