Individuals with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) may be at risk of developing gastric cancer even after receiving Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) eradication therapy, demonstrated a study from Hong Kong.
Aberrations of tumour protein p53 in radical prostatectomy tissue are associated with clinically relevant endpoints of metastatic relapse and prostate cancer specific mortality (PCSM), suggests a recent study.
Pregnancy attenuates the risk of endometrial cancer regardless of whether it ends shortly after conception or at 40 weeks of gestation, a study has shown. A biological process occurring within the first weeks of pregnancy drives this risk reduction, as shown by pregnancies terminated through induced abortions having similar risk reductions as those ending in childbirth.
A recent study involving 99 patients in Hong Kong demonstrated that arsenic trioxide (As2O3), used as part of induction and maintenance treatment for newly diagnosed acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APL), is safe and highly effective, achieving 100 percent complete response (CR), 3-year leukaemia-free survival (LFS) and 3-year overall survival (OS) rates.
There appears to be an association between low muscle mass and increased risks of recurrence and mortality in patients who undergo radical prostatectomy of prostate cancer regardless of the body mass index (BMI), suggests a recent study.
