Bioactive food chemicals are substances present in food that are capable of interacting with living cells causing changes in physiological functions. Salicylic acid (SA), a plant hormone involved in plant immune response, is one such bioactive food chemical. Aspirin, a commercially available SA, might play beneficial roles in cardiovascular health and colon cancer. It may also cause urticaria, angioedema, asthma, and gastrointestinal symptoms in SA-sensitive individuals. Dietary SA might exert similar beneficial effects and/or may induce similar symptoms in hypersensitive individuals...

'Erythema Multiforme associated with Phenytoin And Cranial radiation Therapy' (EMPACT) is a very rare clinic situation and classified in EM-like drug reactions. It can be easily misdiagnosed as acute urticaria or drug eruption in ED. Initial symptoms may resemble a simple skin problem, but diagnosing and early hospitalization of the patients can be lifesaving. Here, we present a man with renal cell cancer and brain metastases who admitted to ED due to fever and generalized rash. His skin lesions beginning from his head and spreading through the torso appeared four days after the end of radiotherapy (11 days after the initial dose of both radiation and oral phenytoin)...

UVB (Ultra-violet B) radiation is one of the major etiological factors in various dermal pathology viz. dermatitis, actinic folliculitis, solar urticaria, psoriasis and cancer among many others. UVB causes toxic manifestation in tissues by inciting inflammatory and tumor promoting events. We have designed this study to assess the anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor promotion effect of Wedelolactone (WDL) a specific IKK inhibitor. Results indicate significant restoration of anti-oxidative enzymes due to WDL treatments...

Various paraneoplastic syndromes (PNS) are reported to be associated with breast cancer and can range from mild dermatological symptoms to severe neurological complications. Neurological and dermatological manifestations tend to be the more commonly seen paraneoplastic manifestations, albeit both are relatively rare. Diagnosis of the underlying malignancy is often delayed since the presence and severity of paraneoplastic manifestations are not dependent on the tumor size or stage. Herein, we describe a unique case of unilateral arm urticaria presenting as a paraneoplastic manifestation of metachronous bilateral breast cancer...

The PI3K/AKT/mTOR signaling pathways are frequently dysregulated in multiple human cancers, including multiple myeloma (MM), non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), and Waldenström's macroglobulinemia (WM). This was the first clinical study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, maximal-tolerated dose (MTD), dose-limiting toxicity (DLT), pharmacokinetics, and preliminary clinical activity of TAK-228, an oral TORC1/2 inhibitor, in patients with MM, NHL, or WM. Thirty-nine patients received TAK-228 once daily (QD) at 2, 4, 6, or 7 mg, or QD for 3 days on and 4 days off each week (QDx3d QW) at 9 or 12 mg, in 28-day cycles...

BACKGROUND: Fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) play important roles in multiple cancers by supporting tumor growth and angiogenesis. FP-1039 (GSK3052230) is a FGF ligand trap consisting of the extracellular domain of FGF receptor 1 (FGFR1) fused with the Fc region of IgG1. FP-1039 binds and neutralizes multiple FGFs that normally bind FGFR1. The primary objective of this phase I study was to evaluate the safety and tolerability of FP-1039. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Eligible patients with metastatic or locally advanced solid tumors for which standard treatments were ineffective were treated with weekly doses of FP-1039 for 4 weeks, followed by 2 weeks observation...

Biological effect of a visible light depends on extend of its property to penetrate into the tissues: the greater is a wavelength the more is an effect of a radiation. An impact of a visible light on the skin is evident by wave and quantum effects. Quanta of a visible radiation carry more energy than infrared radiation, although an influence of such radiation on the skin is produced by the light spectrum on the boarder of the ultraviolet and the infrared rays and is manifested by thermal and chemical effects...
