BACKGROUND: The incidence of breast cancer related lymphedema is approximately 5%. Far infrared ray (FIR) treatment can potentially reduce fluid volume and extremity circumference as well as the frequency of dermato-lymphangitis (DLA). However, there is no published data on the oncological safety of FIR and the potential for activation of any residual breast cancer cells. The aim of this study is to investigate the safety of far infrared ray (FIR) treatment of postmastectomy lymphedema, clinically and in vitro...

CA125, is a marker in the clinical diagnosis of several cancers and currently is the best serum-based tumor marker for ovarian cancer. Here, we developed an ultrasensitive antibody-ssDNA aptamer sandwich-type fluorescence immunosensor for CA125 detection. Based on a novel signal amplification strategy the carbon dots (CDs) functionalized with aptamer (CD-aptamer) used as detection probe and PAMAM-Dendrimers/AuNPs was used for covalent attachment of CA125-antibody and completing the sandwich assay method. By measuring of fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) signals between CDs and AuNPs as nanoquenchers, the fluorescence signal quenched during sandwich complex formed between anti-CA125, CA125 and CDs-Aptamer and decreasing of fluorescence response signal is related to CA125 concentrations...

Low Dosage Computerized Tomography (LDCT) has been shown to improve early detection of lung cancer and mortality rates in high-risk individuals, which was, however, limited by specifically coverage for heavy smokers and high rates of false positivity. Here, we aim to investigate a novel biomarker for early detection of lung cancer, and further extend to concentrate high-risk subjects for increasing specificity and coverage of LDCT. We performed retrospective blinded evaluation of lung cancer and healthy controls in training and validation cohorts...

Primary seminal vesicle carcinoma is a rare entity whose diagnosis can be achieved ruling out the main carcinomas that commonly invade the seminal vesicles. Although a panel of immunohistochemical markers (CA125, CK7, CK20, PSA and PSAP) has been proposed as unique for primary seminal vesicle carcinoma, a reliable positive marker is lacking. In this article, we report a case of primary seminal vesicle carcinoma in a 57-years-old man. The tumor was localized to the left seminal vesicle and histologically characterized by papillae lined by broad eosinophilic cells with pleomorphic nuclei...

BACKGROUND: Assuming that tumor cell dissemination requires a shift to a mesenchymal phenotype, we analyzed the incidence of epithelial-to-mesenchymal-transition (EMT)-like circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in ovarian cancer patients and inquired, how their molecular phenotypes respond to platinum-based chemotherapy and influence outcome. RESULTS: Before surgery, overall detection rate for epithelial CTCs was 18%. EMT-like CTCs were more frequently observed (30%) and were mutually exclusive to epithelial CTCs in the majority of patients (82%)...

Here, a novel potential-resolved "in-electrode" type electrochemiluminescence (ECL) immunosensor was fabricated based on two different types of luminant Ru-NH2 and AuNPs/g-C3N4 to realize simultaneous detection of dual targets. In this strategy, anti-CA1251 and anti-SCCA1 were immobilized on bare gold electrode as capture probes, which could catch the two corresponding target CA125 and SCCA, and the immobilization of the signal tags was allowed via the interaction between antigen and antibody. In this process, (Ru&anti-CA1252)@GO and anti-SCCA2-AuNPs/g-C3N4 could exhibit two strong and stable ECL emissions at 1...
