Angelika A. Schlarb, Isabel Bihlmaier, Martin Hautzinger, Marco D. Gulewitsch and Barbara Schwerdtle

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 27,2015

Sleep problems are a common complaint among adults. In university students international studies showed prevalence rates between 4.7 and 36.2% for sleep difficulties and 2-3% of students report nightmares. Previous studies show that nightmares are often associated with insomnia and mental strain, but also with gender. The goal of this study was to outline nightmares, associations with sleep disturbances and mental strain as well as self-efficacy among university students. An amount of 2196 stude...

Kyphosis and Sleep Characteristics in Older Persons: The Rancho Bernardo Study

Che Wankie, D. Kritz-Silverstein, E. Barrett-Connor and D.M. Kado

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: September 21, 2015

Accentuated kyphosis, popularly known as the dowager's hump, is a forward curvature of the thoracic spine that appears as a humped or crooked back. Progressive kyphosis may develop as a result of spinal fractures caused by osteoporosis, postural changes due to muscle weakness, and/or degenerative disc disease. Hyperkyphosis is a common condition affecting 20-40% of older persons, but can occur less commonly among the young. In older persons, hyperkyphosis has been associated with falls, fracture...

Does Human Papillomavirus Affect Pregnancy Outcomes? An Analysis of Hospital Data 2012-2014

Harpriya Kaur, Delf Schmidt-Grimminger, Steven W Remmenga, Baojiang Chen, KM M Islam and Shinobu Watanabe-Galloway

Article Type: Original Research Article | First Published: December 8, 2015

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States. Pregnant women are at higher risk of HPV infection because during pregnancy major physiological and immunological changes take place that modulate the functioning of the immune system and may cause changes in HPV replication. These changes may also make the clearance of HPV much more difficult. HPV infection can impair extra villious trophoblast invasion into the uterine wall by increasing the rate...

Racial Differences in Reasons for Failure to Receive Ovarian Cancer Treatment: An Analysis of National Cancer Database Cases (1998-2012)

Mary A Otoo, Kent Hoskins, Katherine C Brewer, Anna B Beckmeyer-Borowko, Caryn E Peterson and Charlotte E Joslin

Article Type: Short Communication | First Published: November 11, 2015

Non-Hispanic blacks (NHB) have poorer ovarian cancer survival rates than non-Hispanic whites (NHW). This difference is in part due to differences in treatment uptake. The objective of this study is to characterize racial differences in reasons for non-receipt of treatment among women diagnosed with epithelial ovarian cancer (OVCA) in the United States and Puerto Rico between 1998 and 2012....

Interstitial Brachytherapy for Locally Advanced Cervical Cancer

Nathan Denlinger, Nicole Nolan, Kristin Bixel, Ritu Salani, Douglas Martin and Allison M. Quick

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 21, 2015

Retrospective analysis was performed on patients treated for cervical cancer at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center from 2000 to 2014. A total of 525 patients were identified and 52 of these patients received interstitial brachytherapy and were included in the analysis. All patients received external beam radiation. All patients were treated with low-dose-rate interstitial brachytherapy, except for one patient who was treated with high-dose-rate interstitial brachytherapy. Actuarial ...

Fascin is Expressed in Basal-Liketype Triple Negative Breast Cancer Associated with High Malignant Potential in Japanese Women

Hiromichi Tsuchiya, Akiko Sasaki, Yuko Tsunoda, Masafumi Takimoto, Terumasa Sawada, Seigo Nakamura, kentaro Iijima and Katsuji Oguchi

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: December 07, 2015

No molecular targeted drug has been developed for poor-prognostic triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) because it has no hormone or human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) sensitivity. In addition, TNBC has recently been sub classified into 6 types. In this study, we analyzed the expression of Fascin, an actin-binding protein associated with breast cancer, in 301 invasive breast cancer samples. Of these, 32 were identified as TNBC and were classified into the basal-like type and other no...

C4.4A and Aldehyde Dehydrogenase 1 (ALDH1) May Contribute to breast Cancer not Mediated Through epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition

Natsuko Inoue, Takahiro Watanabe, Seiichi Hirota, Masahisa Ohtsuka, Hirofumi Yamamoto, Koji Morimoto, Toyomasa Katagiri and Yasuo Miyoshi

Article Type: Short Communication | First Published: November 11, 2015

C4.4A, a glycosylphosphatidyl-inositol-anchored membrane protein, plays an important role in epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) affecting progression of colorectal cancer, while aldehyde dehydrogenase 1 (ALDH1) has been identified as a stem cell marker for breast cancer. Since cancer stem cells link to EMT phenotype, both molecules seem to be important for breast cancer progression mediated via EMT. In this study, associations between expressions of C4.4A or ALDH1 and vimentin, a mesenchyma...
