Background: Pathological complete response (pCR) is associated with improved prognosis in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). The optimal chemotherapy regimen is unclear. Weekly nab-paclitaxel vs conventional paclitaxel or addition of carboplatin to anthracycline-taxane results in higher pCR rates with uncertain survival impact. We evaluated carboplatin vs gemcitabine with a nab-paclitaxel backbone as a short 12-week A-free regimen with a focus on early response. Methods: Patients with TNBC (estrogen receptor/progesterone receptor < 1%, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative, cT1c-cT4c, cN0/+) were randomly assigned to A: nab-paclitaxel 125 mg/m2/gemcitabine 1000 mg/m2 d1,8 three times weekly (q3w); vs B: nab-paclitaxel 125 mg/m2/carboplatin AUC2 day 1,8 q3w...

Dens invaginatus is a developmental anomaly, caused by deepening of the enamel organ into the dental papilla before calcification of the dental tissues. Teeth with dens invagination are susceptible to early caries and pulp necrosis within a few years of eruption or even before root end closure. This article reports two immature maxillary central incisors with type I and III dens invaginatus which had necrotic pulp and a large periradicular lesion, that were treated successfully by nonsurgical root canal treatment...

PURPOSE: Preservation of parenchymal mass and ischemia type/duration can influence functional recovery after partial nephrectomy (PN). Some have hypothesized that relevant comorbidities may also impact nephron stability and functional recovery, but this has not been adequately investigated. MATERIALS/METHODS: 405 patients with PN at our center (2007-2015) had necessary data to determine function and parenchymal mass preserved within the ipsilateral kidney. Comorbidities potentially associated with renal functional status were reviewed, including various degrees of hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, smoking status, and use of related medications...

Spa bathing is known as a medical treatment for certain diseases causing chronic pains. Spa water contains mineral components which lower the specific heat of the water, resulting in a higher efficiency to warm body-core temperature. This phenomenon yields pain-relieving effect for rheumatoid arthritis, low back pain, sciatic neuralgia, fibromyalgia, etc. Here we introduce medical and biological effects of mud-spa-bathing therapy for fibromyalgia other than pain relief, the changes of blood examination data, and the telomere length of circulating leukocytes...

Vitrified human blastocysts show varied re-expansion capacity after warming. This prospective observational study compared behaviour of artificially collapsed blastocysts (study group patients, n = 69) to that of blastocysts that were vitrified without artificial collapse (control group patients, n = 72). Warmed blastocysts were monitored by time-lapse microscopy and blastocoel re-expansion speed and growth patterns compared between study and control groups. These parameters were also retrospectively compared between blastocysts that resulted in live birth and those that failed...

BACKGROUND: Perioperative adjuncts are utilized across surgical specialities with the goal of improving patient outcomes. High-dose oxygen and extended warming are shown to increase wound collagen deposition during abdominal surgery. Prostacyclin is shown to improve limb salvage and patency rate in infrainguinal bypass (IIB) surgery. This study evaluated the impact of these adjuncts on healing and perfusion post IIB surgery. METHODS: This randomized controlled study allocated patients undergoing IIB surgery into three treatment arms (perioperative high-dose oxygen, extended warming, and a synthetic prostacyclin) or a control group...

Children and young adults, who suffer from cancer, receive gonadotoxic therapy, which destroys their fertile abilities after survival. Ovarian cryopreservation and transplantation provide the promising solution to this problem, where the ovary can be removed before the gonadotoxic therapy and reimplanted after patient's survival, where the ovary is to be cryopreserved during the period of the therapy. However, cryopreservation of the whole ovary is still facing great obstacles, namely the ischemic reperfusion injury and the defective cryopreservation related to the defective ability to universally deliver the cryopreservation/warming solutions through the ovarian vascular bed...
