Department of Health and Human Services Screening for Cervical Cancer - Systematic Evidence Review (Number 25)

The evidence we reviewed indicates that a reasonable age at which to initiate cervical cancer screening in women is age 21. Screening before this age is complicated by relatively high rates of transient HPV and regressive cervical abnormalities, with very few actual cancer cases. Current data cannot assure that beginning screening after this age is clearly safe, particularly in the United States, which has no centralized national cervical cancer screening program. For cytology-based screening, LBC does not differ from CC in sensitivity, specificity, or relative CIN detection, but may yield a lower proportion of unsatisfactory slides. Cost, overall screening strategy, and other considerations may also pertain to local decisions on which approach to use for collecting cytology samples. In women older than age 30 years, a single HC2 test is clearly more sensitive for CIN2+ and CIN3+ (about 40% greater) than cytology alone. However, a single HC2 test is also 3 to 5 percent less specific than cytology.

Scientific Essay from the year 2016 in the subject Biology - Diseases, Health, Nutrition, , language: English, abstract: The prevalence of cervical cancer and mortality rates has continued over the years despite several international and local efforts to reduce it in developing countries particularly sub-Saharan Africa which have the highest prevalence rates globally. This dissertation appraised the factors responsible for cervical cancer prevalence and assayed the efficacy of these interventions with particular focus on Nigeria by identifying the risk factors causing its spread and recommending prevention strategies for best options in reducing rates of cervical cancer in Nigeria.A systematic literature approach was used for the review of studies. This was carried out through database search on the prevalence, risk, mortality, factors and intervention for cervical cancer in developing countries with a narrative analysis to explanation for the local, national and international interventions. The findings revealed that lack of a national policy on cervical cancer on awareness, treatment, prevention and control, limit intervention efforts. Furthermore, massive overlaps in the international intervention programme, paucity of data on the analysis of impact and efficacy of these interventions, including unavailability of vaccine for high risk HPV stymie efforts for the reduction of cervical cancer in Nigeria.

Kainoth Shabin, Javed Aamir, T.S. Muralidhar Liquid Based Cytology To Replace Conventional Cervical Cytology

Cervical cancer can be preventable by regular screening. Screening identifies the precancerous lesions, which helps in prevention and further progression to cancer. Despite the limited accuracy of the Conventional Pap, liquid based cytology (LBC) has been introduced in the NHS Cervical screening programme (NHSCSP) UK. National institute of clinical excellence (NICE) recommended a pilot study to evaluate the accuracy of LBC in 2003 and the pilot report showed that LBC reduces the inadequate rates of samples. However, there were insufficient evidence to justify the sensitivity and specificity of LBC. Many studies compared the accuracy between LBC and the Conventional method; some studies showed that LBC is sensitive in detecting CIN2 or worse lesions and some study found no difference between the two methods. This study looked at the reporting profile of cytology in England over the past 10 year period for comparing the two methods. LBC has been introduced in the NHSCSP in the year 2003/04 and the complete rollout of LBC was done in 2008. The information for this study has been collected from the NHCSP website and the analysis has been done using the Microsoft Excel.

Murray Keith Wadsworth Prostate Cancer. Sheep or Wolf.: Navigating Systemic Misinformation

Before you choose a treatment strategy, you need to know whether you’re facing sheep or wolves -- and where they all are.Murray Wadsworth was a fit and enthusiastic weekend triathlete who included regular checkups and annual screenings for prostate cancer in his overall health and wellness plan. At age forty-seven, though, he was caught off guard by a prostate cancer scare after a routine blood test. The biopsy came back clear, and Wadsworth carried on with his active life. But ten years later, another routine screening raised a concern. This time, the biopsy tested positive for cancer.Prostate Cancer: Sheep or Wolf? is the riveting story of one man’s parallel journeys: Balancing a diagnosis of and treatment for prostate cancer while embarking on multiple RV road trips between treatment regimens throughout the US and Europe. This book offers a revealing and insightful look into how America’s healthcare system leads men into blind alleys, fear traps, and under- and overtreatment. There is considerable confusion and misinformation about prostate cancer screening, including whether men should even screen at all and what to make of the results. But even when men think they’re informed about symptoms and screening, the presence of prostate cancer can be missed.Despite regular PSA and DRE screening, Murray Wadsworth’s cancer went undetected for years. When he was diagnosed at fifty-seven while working in England, he took no solace in the myth that prostate cancer is an old man’s di...

Sanaa Khalil Humoral Immune Response Against Survivin in Patients with Lung Cancer

This Book is presenting the Evaluation of the humoral immune response against survivin in patients with lung, Serum samples from 33 small cell lung cancer (SCLC) and 117 non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients upon diagnosis, and from 100 controls, were tested by ELISA for anti-survivin antibodies. We conclude that survivin does not induce considerable humoral responses in lung cancer. Potentially, however, strong anti-survivin antibody responses can be elicited during the follow-up of the patients, whose clinical significance remains to be elucidated. These findings, together with our previous data concerning survivin expression and the related cytolytic T cell responses in lung cancer, signify a high tolerogenic potential of this tumor-associated antigen.

The current study was conducted to evaluate the oxidative stress status in prostate cancer. To achieve this purpose, 75 prostate cancer patients of ages 63.5± 3.5 years and 33 apparently healthy individuals of ages 61± 3.8 years (control group) were enrolled. The distribution of patients revealed 60% (40) of rural areas, 44% (30) are smokers, 52% (39) having either heart diseases and/or hypertension, and 40% (30) of positive family history for the disease. The levels of MDA, GSH, GPX, and CAT were measured in sera of patients and control group. The statistical analysis exhibited significant elevation for MDA levels and significant decreases for GSH and GPX levels in the group of patients when compared with those of the control group. Patients from rural areas showed significant rise for MDA values when compared with those of urban areas. Variations of oxidative stress markers were found to be essentially related to prostate cancer and independent on smoking or other diseases in the studied patients. MDA levels were demonstrated to increase significantly in patients of positive family history when compared with those of negative family history of prostate cancer.

PhD Charles D. Boison Relationship between Family Income and Obesity

Obesity is a chronic disease that is caused by several factors such as diet, genetics, physical inactivity, and poor dietary habits. This research focused on how income affects obesity among African Americans (AA). The data used in the study was obtained from AfricanAmerican participants living in Durham, North Carolina (NC). Studies have shown low income African Americans are disproportionately affected by chronic diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol, due to poor eating habits or diets. Some studies have also reported higher rates of obesity amongst high income earners. The purpose of this research is to address the inconsistency, as well as fill the gap in the literature on this topic.Additionally, the study is focused on other key factors that contribute to low family income and how these factors contribute to obesity among AA, specifically in Durham, NC. A qualitative approach was used to interview and glean the lived experiences of 30 participants.The findings from the study showed family income contributes to obesity. The study contributes to social change by recommending that policy makers advocate for an increase in national minimum wage, encourage educational approaches to prevent obesity, promote good eating habits, and promote adequate physical activity amongst AA.

Megbelayin Emmanuel Olu Patients. Satisfaction in a Low-Income Economy

Patients' satisfaction constitutes a global topical research issues. This is because of pervasive competitive markets and the growing concerns of public authorities to meet the health needs of their populace. In this era of high patient demand for health care excellence and emerging trends in awareness of individuals' rights, patient satisfaction surveys are veritable avenues to generate information that could be used for program planning and quality improvement efforts. Though services provided at public health institutions are generally perceived by patients in low-income economies as being poor, only few studies have involved patients in measuring satisfaction or defining health service standards. This book aptly explored an observational descriptive study whose conscientious methodology would be useful to students and teachers of economics, political science, administration, medicine et cetra. A-must-read for administrators, health care policy makers, health workers and everyone that prioritizes clients' satisfaction.

It explores the efficacy of pain acceptance in cancer patients. There are several questions it tries to answer: Does an individual who is suffering from cancer view the pain accompanying the illness as beneficial at any stage? Is there a relationship between pain acceptance and benefit finding? Does culture have an impact on pain acceptance and benefit finding in cancer patients? If the answer is yes, what are the cultural elements that influence pain acceptance and benefit finding? Do they refer to social relationships? Is it religion that has a major impact on the patient's attitude? Or is there something else?The present proposal hopes to recruit a sufficient number of participants that represent the cancer community. Participants will be from different ethnic groups throughout England, it will be a mixture of English, Chinese, Pakistani and Arabic people from the Middle East. Conducting this study will be beneficial for more than one group of people as it might provide indications for cancer patients regarding pain acceptance and the ability to gain benefit from being ill.

Kharb Rajeev Novel Heterocyclic Scaffolds having Anticancer Potential

Cancer is a serious global health concern as it is a deadly disease being responsible for about 13% of total death tolls globally and at present, cancer is the second leading cause of death in the world after cardiovascular diseases as reported by WHO. Despite advances in cancer research, the overall survival of cancer patients remains low. Inherent and acquired resistance to treatment and the dose-limiting toxicity caused by the narrow therapeutic window of many anticancer drugs are recognized as obstacles for effective treatment of cancer. As per recent literature, it has been found that novel heterocyclic derivatives such as imidazole, triazole, thiazole, benzothiophene, coumarin, furan and isoxazole derivatives as anticancer drugs are lesser toxic, experience lesser resistance from cancerous cells and capable of targeting tumor DNA more specifically as compared to currently used anticancer drugs. Therefore, this communication is an endeavor to update the recent advances and development in the field of cancer research to develop novel anticancer agents for future having better safety and site specific receptors binding for effective treatment of cancer as a deadly disease.

Eva Maria Kreibohm The Performance of Socially Responsible Investment Funds in Europe

Socially responsible investing (SRI) is an investment approach that combines investors' financial as well as nonfinancial goals in the security selection process. Technically, investors can engage in SRI either by directly investing in companies that implement corporate social activities or by investing their money in SRI funds, which apply screening criteria to select securities. The screening process applied by the SRI funds has led to controversy among academics regarding whether the use of SRI screens in the security selection process influences the financial performance of the funds.The empirical study analyzes whether or not the screening process applied by such funds influences their financial performance. Previous research mostly has focused on analyzing the performance of SRI equity funds established in the United States. The study at hand not only includes SRI equity funds, but also SRI balanced and fixed income funds established in Europe, the biggest market for SRI globally.The study provides unexpected results that are not only of interest for investors, who want to get a better understanding of the effect on the financial performance of their portfolios in case SRI funds are added. The results are also relevant for SRI fund managers, who are interested in promoting their funds and attracting (new) investors, and for academics, whose research interests are e. g., located in the fields of SRI, fund portfolio performances and market efficiencies.

Gary Reed The Blockbuster Drug. Are too many profiting to stop a bad drug.

The Blockbuster Drug may be just the prescription for the reader looking for a smart, suspenseful novel set against the background of some of today’s cutting-edge medical and legal issues. Set largely inside a major health plan located in Cincinnati, this novel explores the dependent, but sometimes treacherous relationships among health plans, drug companies, physicians and patients. Spencer Doss, M.D., the health plan's new Regional Medical Director, stumbles onto what he believes are too many cases of a rare cancer in older patients taking the latest blockbuster drug. For help, he turns to Eileen Wang, the health plan’s in-house counsel. Wang has other issues on her plate – a cyber intrusion and an insider-trading investigation – but finds herself wondering why so many seniors are taking the expensive new drug. Maya Naidu, the programmer whose data mining unearthed the excess cases of the cancer in patients taking the drug, returns home to Hyderabad to be at her mother’s death bed. In Shanghai, the police are investigating a bribery scheme involving the drug’s manufacturer. Hired to represent one of the drug’s victims, hotshot young attorney Ryan Ponzer doesn’t have the resources to litigate with a giant drug company. Should he sue the health plan for failure to warn the health plan’s members of the blockbuster’s deadly side effects?

Colposcopic examination of cervix with cervical cytology is very frequently used to screen the cervical lesion. Accuracy of cervical cytology is less as compared to Histopathological examination. Therefore histopathological examination of biopsies of cervical lesions and hysterectomy specimens is the gold standard. Carcinoma of the cervix is the most common cancer in Indian women and accounts for 20% of all malignant tumours in the females. In this book we discussed anatomy, epidemiology, aetiopathogenesis, benign squamous cell lesions, benign glandular lesions and other tumors of the cervix. This book is very helpful for postgraduate students and faculties of Pathology and Obstetrics and Gynecologists.

Sherif Mohamed Tumour necrosis factor-alpha and weight loss in chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases

Master's Thesis from the year 2001 in the subject Medicine - Neoplasms, Oncology, , language: English, abstract: Weight loss is a common feature in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The clinical importance of weight loss; particularely loss of fat-free mass (FFM) has been demonstrated in its adverse effects on physical performance and quality of life. Moreover; weight loss and a low body weight are unfavorable prognostic factors in survival, independent of lung function.Mechanisms of malnutrition in those patients are not fully understood. Several factors have been implicated. Increased resting energy expenditure (REE) contributes the main hypothesis for weight loss in COPD patients. However, not all patients with COPD who lose weight are hypermetabolic.Recent data have shown that a systemic inflammatory response is present in patients with COPD. A clear evidence for a relationship between weight loss and plasma tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-*) has been shown in COPD patients. TNF-* produces a cachexia-like syndrome in animal models and has been implicated as a mediator of cachexia in several clinical conditions including cancer, chronic heart failure, cystic fibrosis and anorexia nervosa.Nutritional assessment for COPD patients is essential; to identify those individuals who will benifit from nutritional support therapies and to determine baseline values to measure the effectiveness of nutritional intervention. It includes several methods, n...

Ziv Tepman Testing the Permanent Income Hypothesis among Food Stamp Recipients

The permanent income hypothesis (PIH) posits that consumers decide how much money to spend in a given period based on a rational assessment of future income. They react to unusual events by borrowing or saving as necessary in order to "smooth" their consumption across time. Is this model an accurate picture of how households make their spending decisions? Specifically, can low-income households on welfare smooth their consumption, even though borrowing and saving could be quite difficult? A detailed survey of food stamp recipients conducted in San Diego County in 1990 is used to explore the relationship between a household's expected future income and its spending behavior in the present on food, clothing, and other items. Key implications of the PIH are tested by decomposing households' income into permanent and transitory components, a method that not has been used in other PIH literature in such a manner. An interesting finding is also made regarding these households' ability to spend more than they receive. This analysis reveals important insights for anyone interested in the implications of the PIH, or in learning how America's welfare population manages its spending.

М. С. Majo Income and health care utilization among the 50+ in Europe and the US

This study addresses the question how income affects health care utilization by the population aged 50 and over in the United States and a number of European countries with varying health care systems. The probabilities that individuals receive several medical services (visits to general practitioner, specialist, dentist, inpatient, or outpatient services) are analyzed separately using probit models. In addition to controls for income and demographic characteristics, controls for health status (both subjective and objective measures of health) are used. We analyze how the relationship between income and health care utilization varies across countries and relate these cross country differences to characteristics of the health care system, i. e., per capita total and public expenditure on health care, gate-keeping for specialist care, and copayments.

The Molecular Biology of Cancer, Stella Pelengaris & Michael Khan This capturing, comprehensive text, extensively revised and updated for its second edition, provides a detailed overview of the molecular mechanisms underpinning the development of cancer and its treatment. “Bench to Bedside”: A key strength of this book that sets it apart from general cancer biology references is the interweaving of all aspects of cancer biology from the causes, development and diagnosis through to the treatment and care of cancer patients – essential for providing a broader view of cancer and its impact. The highly readable presentation of a complex field, written by an international panel of researchers, specialists and practitioners, would provide an excellent text for graduate and undergraduate courses in the biology of cancer, medical students and qualified practitioners in the field preparing for higher exams, and for researchers and teachers in the field. For the teaching of cancer biology, special features have been included to facilitate this use: bullet points at the beginning of each chapter explaining key concepts and controversial areas; each chapter builds on concepts learned in previous chapters, with a list of key outstanding questions remaining in the field, suggestions for further reading, and questions for student review. All chapters contain text boxes that provide additional and relevant information. Key highlights are listed below: An overview of the cancer cell and important new concepts. Selected human cancers: lung, breast, colorectal, prostate, renal, skin, cervix, and hematological malignancies. Key cellular processes in cancer biology including (a) traditionally important areas such as cell cycle control, growth regulation, oncogenes and tumour suppressors apoptosis, as well as (b) more highly topical areas of apoptosis, telomeres, DNA damage and repair, cell adhesion, angiogenesis, immunity, epigenetics, and the proteasome. Clinical oncology: In-depth coverage of important concepts such as screening, risk of cancer and prevention, diagnoses, managing cancer patients from start to palliative care and end-of-life pathways. Chapters highlighting the direct links between cancer research and clinical applications. New coverage on how cancer drugs are actually used in specific cancer patients, and how therapies are developed and tested. Systems Biology and cutting edge research areas covered such as RNA interference (RNAi). Each chapter includes key points, chapter summaries, text boxes, and topical references for added comprehension and review. Quotations have been used in each chapter to introduce basic concepts in an entertaining way. Supported by a dedicated website at www.blackwellpublishing.com/pelengaris We should list the great reviews we got for first edition which are on the back of the 2nd edition: “A capturing, comprehensive, clearly written and absolutely accurate introduction into cancer biology…..This book deserves great praise for the readable presentation of this complex field….the true synthesis of bench and bedside approaches is marvelously achieved.” Christian Schmidt, Molecular Cell “Chapters address the issues of cancer diagnosis, treatment, and patient care and set the book apart from general molecular biology references….This book is applicable to both graduate and undergraduate students, and in the context of a
