According to the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR), a Cancer Stem Cell is a cell within a tumor that possesses the capacity to self-renew and to cause the heterogeneous lineages of cancer cells that constitutes the tumor [1]. Cancer Stem Cells (CSCs) are involved in the metastatic process, in the resistance to therapeutic treatments of many types of human cancers and consequently in the onset of recurrences. Numerous translational studies have been conducted to understand CSC characteristics and evaluate association between CSC-related biomarkers and clinical outcomes...

Chondrosarcoma is one of the most common malignant bone tumors in adults. It use to affect upper arm, pelvis and thigh bone. A wide surgical extirpation represent the gold standard to treat this disorder. In fact, radiotherapy and chemotherapy are no useful. Interestingly, chondrosarcoma is rare in head and neck (HNCS) and extremely uncommon during pregnancy. Thus, there is a lack of evidence about the proper treatment in these cases. A wide surgical extirpation is also considered the most effective procedure in HNCS...

Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) are relatively rare and complex neoplasms that present many clinical challenges. Most GEP-NETs are sporadic, but they can be multiple and a component of a familial syndrome. Assessment of the location and extent of GEP-NETs is crucial for management and a number of novel imaging modalities are under evaluation with the principal goal of increasing sensitivity for the detection of micro-metastases while retaining specificity. The appropriate diagnosis and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors often involves collaboration between specialists in multiple disciplines, using specific biochemical, radiologic, and surgical methods...

Cell cycle regulator p21(CIP1) has controversial biological effects in breast cancer since in spite of its role as cell cycle inhibitor and promoter of cellular senescence, it also induces cell proliferation and chemoteraphy resistance. We here explored the molecular mechanisms involved in progestin regulation of p21(CIP1) expression. We also investigated the biological effects of p21(CIP1) in breast cancer cells. We found that the synthetic progestin medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) upregulates p21(CIP1) protein expression via c-Src, signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (Stat3) and ErbB-2 phosphorylation...

The proposal of the study was to verify leucocituria frequency in carriers of gynecological cancer in chemotherapy (CT) and to identify practices in urine collection for exam. Descriptive transversal study carried out with ginecologyc cancer patients during chemotherapy sections. With semi-structured interview, it was identified urine collection technique and verified the results of exams accomplished before chemotherapy sections. Among 30 interviews, 80% related to collect urine correctly, 100% presented at last a mistake during the process...

This descriptive study, grounded upon Donabedian's outcomes approach, had as purpose to evaluate the satisfaction level of cancer patients with the assistance received at the Adult Chemotheraoy Ambulatory of Hospital São Paulo. The sample was constituted of 105 patients who accepted to participate in the study The patients' evaluation was positive both with nursing care (54% very good and 46% good) and with the overall care received in that service (50% very satisfied and 46% satisfied). The level of satisfaction manifested by the clients was related mainly to the organization accessibility, the welcoming environment and the assistance process, in its professional/client interaction and the technical performance dimensions...
