Accuracy evaluation of the C. elegans cancer test (N-NOSE) using a new combined method.

Cancer Treat Res Commun 2021 Apr 9;27:100370. Epub 2021 Apr 9.

Hirotsu Bio Science Inc., New Otani Garden Court 22F, 4-1 Kioi-cho, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, 102-0094, Japan. Electronic address:

Early cancer detection is critical for effective treatment. N-NOSE (Nematode-NOSE) is a simple, inexpensive, and highly sensitive cancer screening method based on the chemotaxis of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, which shows evasive action from the urine of healthy individuals while being attracted to the urine of cancer patients. Initially, N-NOSE relied on chemotaxis indexes obtained with 10-fold dilutions of urine samples. Read More

Effect of Deep Inspiration Breath Hold on Normal Tissue Sparing With Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy Versus Proton Therapy for Mediastinal Lymphoma.

Adv Radiat Oncol 2020 Nov-Dec;5(6):1255-1266. Epub 2020 Aug 25.

Department of Radiation Oncology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas.

Purpose: Intensity modulated radiation therapy delivered with deep-inspiration breath hold (IMRT-BH) provides favorable normal tissue dosimetric profiles when treating patients with mediastinal lymphoma. However, it is unclear if IMRT-BH plans are comparable to free breathing (FB) proton plans. We performed a retrospective, comparative dosimetric study between IMRT-BH and FB passive scatter proton therapy (P-FB) or intensity modulated proton therapy (IMPT-FB). Read More

() is a Gram-negative flagellated microorganism that has been extensively studied since its first isolation due to its widespread diffusion and association with numerous diseases. While the bacterium is proved to be a causative factor for a number of gastric diseases such as gastritis, gastric adenocarcinoma, and MALT-lymphoma, its role at other gastrointestinal levels and in other systems is being thoroughly studied. In this article, we reviewed the latest published clinical and laboratory studies that investigated associations of with hematologic diseases such as Vitamin B12- and iron-deficiency anemia, primary immune thrombocytopenia, and with a number of dermatologic and ophthalmic diseases.

A Comparison of Real-World Treatment Patterns and Clinical Outcomes in Patients Receiving First-Line Therapy for Unresectable Advanced Gastric or Gastroesophageal Junction Cancer Versus Esophageal Adenocarcinomas.

Adv Ther 2021 01 26;38(1):707-720. Epub 2020 Nov 26.

Gastrointestinal and Lymphoma Unit, The Royal Marsden Hospital, Sutton, Surrey, UK.

Introduction: Management of locally advanced, unresectable, or metastatic (adv/met) esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) follows clinical guidance for gastric cancer (GC) and gastroesophageal junction cancer (GEJC). However, evidence for these guidelines is based largely on patients with adv/met GC/GEJC, and generally excludes patients with EAC. It is currently unclear whether patients with adv/met GC/GEJC and adv/met EAC have similar demographics and clinical outcomes in real-world practice. Read More
