A pilot study was done to measure quantitative EEG (qEEG) brainwave frequencies and behavioral indices of five women undergoing chemotherapy treatment for cancer, before and after listening to specific music (The Magic Mirror-Inspired Reflections solo harp CD written, performed and recorded by Amy Camie) once a day for ten days. Following treatments, the EEG profile for all five participants improved and subjective reports from daily questionnaires confirmed a positive effect of the music....

Radiation exposure to the thyroid gland is unavoidable in breast cancer (BC) radiotherapy (RT). This study was conducted to evaluate the impact of using different supraclavicular (SCV) field angles on the percentage volume of the dose absorbed by the thyroid relative to the maximum dose absorbed by the spinal cord. A total of 50 consecutive BC patients undergoing planning computed tomography (CT) were evaluated. The thyroid gland, spinal cord, an...

Despite of the high incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), treatment strategies stays restrained. New treatment aspects remain a necessity to improve overall survival of patients. Here, we report for the first time a 2 years complete remission of hepatocellular carcinoma with pembrolizumab after failure of sorafenib and progression after liver transplantation. Immunotherapy became a field of interest in HCC for researchers and clinicians in order to establish new immunotherapy modalities t...

Having been identified for centuries, breast cancer still remains one of the leading causes of death in women. Within the United States of America (USA) alone, it is estimated that over 60,000 women would have developed new cases of malignant breast cancer in 2017 alone; thus, calling an attention for the development of a reliable and effective breast cancer model for drug discovery to combat the disease or diagnostics to predict the progression ...

The estimated total national medical cost of treating lung cancer patients in China was 64.21 billion RMB (US$ 10.31 billion), about 2% of total medical costs in 2015. Total lung cancer costs in 2015 were 488.53 billion RMB (US$ 78.42 billion), about 75% of which can be attributed to mortality costs. Two-thirds of the lung cancer patients in the sample were either current or former smokers. The major economic costs of lung cancer among smokers are preventable. China has a relatively low cigarett...

Oral cancer is the most common head and neck cancer (HNC). Its global incidence in 2015 was 410,000 cases with 146,000 deaths. In USA, 41,380 patients were diagnosed with HNC in 2013, and oral cavity cancers accounted for almost 30,000 of new cases. In Saudi Arabia, a total number of 211 oral cancer cases were reported in 2014, representing about 1.8% of the total cancer cases....

Treatment of Stage Four Breast Cancer has traditionally excluded locoregional surgery, with the focus being on control of the distant disease. Much of what is applied in clinical practice is extrapolated from chemotherapy trials in the adjuvant setting, with taxanes and anthracyclines incorporated early on in the treatment course....

Fifteen patients with locally advanced stage III pancreatic cancer underwent radiotherapy with or without concurrent chemotherapy between July 2006 and April 2014. We used 10 MV X-rays and multiple coplanar (two to four) fields. The number of fractions ranged between 20 and 28 with a fraction size of 1.8Gy. A total dose of 36-50.4Gy at the isocenter of the planning target volume (PTV) was administered to each patient. Fourteen patients received c...

A new immunohistochemistry (IHC) method using fluorescence-emitting phosphor-integrated dot (PID) nanoparticles as a fluorescent dye was developed to accurately detect proteins that are expressed by cancer cells. This technique localizes proteins and quantitates their levels of expression in cancer lesions, which facilitates objective analysis of protein levels. We used the PID nanoparticle assay to measure HER2 expression in formalin-fixed, para...

Cambodia is considered to be endemic to chronic gastritis due to Helicobacter pylori (HP). Prevalence of HP is more than 70% inferred from the literature of neighboring countries. However, Cambodia, being a developing nation, doesn’t have enough resources for the screening of HP. On the other hand, after the Kyoto Global Consensus in 2015, risk evaluation of gastric carcinoma based on endoscopic findings with image-enhanced modalities and magni...
