Clinical Utility of Serum Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Type 2 Testing as a Marker of Therapeutic Response In Tissue HER2-Positive Breast Cancer Patients

Seiichi Mokuyasu and Yasuhiro Suzuki

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: November 18, 2017

Human Epidermal growth factor Receptor type 2 (HER2) is over expressed in 20.0-30.0% of breast cancers and is currently evaluated histopathologically. Immunohistochemistry and fluorescence in situ hybridization require invasive enucleation of the tumor tissue and may be affected by heterogeneity....

Immune Paralysis and the Spontaneous Remission of Cancer

BH Behzad Niakan

Article Type: short review article | First Published: November 16, 2017

Once a malignant growth grows past a certain size immune tolerance rather than immune sensitization occurs possibly due to the slow tumor growth. As the malignant grows larger some branches of the immune system (adoptive immunity) become protective of it, while other branches of the immune system oppose its growth....

The Omission of Axillary Lymph Node Dissection in Sentinel Node-Positive Breast Cancer Patients Requires Careful Consideration

Hiroko Nogi, Takashi Kazama, Rei Mimoto, Yoshimi Imawari, Makiko Kamio, Hisashi Shioya, Yasuo Toriumi, Ken Uchida, Masafumi Suzuki and Hiroshi Takeyama

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 30, 2017

Sentinel Node Biopsy (SNB) is used to accurately assess axillary lymph node status in patients with node-negative breast cancer. The purpose of this study was to assess the association between non-sentinel node (SN) metastasis and clinicopathological findings in patients with one or two SN-positive breast cancer....

Assessing Response to Chemoradiotherapy on 18F-FDG PET Images in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer using New Approaches of Histogram and Gray Level Co-Occurrence Matrix

Changdong Ma, Judong Luo, Yong Hou and Changsheng Ma

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 28, 2017

Twelve patients with newly diagnosed NSCLC and treated with combined Chemoradiotherapy (CRT) were involved in this study. We analyzed the percentage variation of gray value in every gray level or on the whole using histogram analysis algorithm which represents global intensity distribution....

The Utilization of Partial Orchiectomy in Treating Small Testicular Tumors in the United States

Shaheen Alanee, Joseph Clemons, Bradley Holland, Max Nutt and Danuta Dynda

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 18, 2017

There is increasing evidence supporting the feasibility of Partial Orchiectomy (PO) as a treatment for small testicular tumors. However, the prevalence of this practice is still unknown. We used the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End results (SEER) registry to characterize national practice patterns for surgical management of patients with testicular tumors ≤ 2 cm in size, and we examined factors that determined performing PO in such patients....

Radiolabeled APIs for the Conduct of Human ADME Studies of Oncology Compounds

Yuexian Li, Mihaela Plesescu and Shimoga R Prakash

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: August 30, 2017

Human ADME (Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, and Excretion) studies of new chemical entities are an important part of the drug development process. These studies are normally performed by using a radioactive tracer (C-14 or H-3) blended with a therapeutic dose of non-radioactive drug in about four to six subjects. The radiolabeled API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) is utilized to evaluate the recovery and track the metabolic fate and physiological disposition of the drug....
