The US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health manage PubMed.gov which comprises of more than 29 million records, papers, reports for biomedical literature, including MEDLINE, life science and medical journals, articles, reviews, reports and books.
BioPortfolio aims to cross reference relevant information on published papers, clinical trials and news associated with selected topics - speciality.
For example view all recent relevant publications on Epigenetics and associated publications and clincial trials.
Microwave ablation (MWA) uses heat to ablate undesired tissue. Development of pre-planning algorithms for MWA of small renal masses requires understanding of microwave-tissue interactions at different operating parameters. The objective of this study was to compare the performance of two MWA systems in in-vivo porcine kidneys.
To compare the efficacy and complication rates of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and repeat surgery in the treatment of locally recurrent thyroid cancers.
Comparison between different thermal ablation systems for thyroid nodules regarding their different procedural characteristics such as treatment-time, number of shots and energy transmission in the context of their clinical performance such as complication rate and volume reduction after three months.
Localized adult high-grade soft tissue sarcomas (STS) usually require multimodality treatment including surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and hyperthermia. If maximal preoperative tumor-shrinkage is envisaged, neoadjuvant chemotherapy + radiation (CRT) is often applied, however at the expense of relatively high toxicities and increased postoperative complication rates. This study aims to compare preoperative CRT with neoadjuvant chemotherapy + regional hyperthermia (HCT) regarding histopathologica...
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of microwave ablation (MWA) followed by immediate biopsy in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and to clarify whether pathology changes can predict treatment responses and patient survival.
Cisplatin is used as a standard chemotherapeutic agent for head and neck cancer treatment. However, some head and neck cancers have cisplatin resistance, leading to difficulty in treatment and poor prognosis. Overcoming cisplatin resistance remains an important strategy to improve prognoses for head and neck cancer patients.
On-line adaptive hyperthermia treatment planning can be useful to suppress treatment limiting hot spots and improve tumor temperatures during locoregional hyperthermia. This requires adequate prediction of changes in heating patterns after phase-amplitude steering. We investigated the predictive value of simulated SAR and temperature for changes in measured temperature after phase-amplitude steering during locoregional hyperthermia.
The Indian HIPEC registry is a self-funded registry instituted by a group of Indian surgeons for patients with peritoneal metastases (PM) undergoing surgical treatment. This work was performed to • Evaluate outcomes of cytoreductive surgery ± HIPEC in patients enrolled in the registry. • Identify operational problems.
The aim of this study was to investigate the post-sauna residual consequences on brain neural network arousal, information processing and cognitive performance.
To compare the applicability of fusion imaging between contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) and computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) (CT/MRI-CEUS fusion imaging) and fusion imaging between CEUS and ultrasound (US-CEUS fusion imaging) in the assessment of treatment response during liver cancer ablation.
This study was conducted to compare a three-dimensional (3D) fusion image navigation system (FINS) with ultrasound (US) for guiding percutaneous microwave ablation (PMWA) for treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
Previous studies have reported that parameters of dynamic contrast-enhanced ultrasound (DCE-US) could predict prognosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients after antiangiogenic therapies. In this study, we aimed to investigate the correlation of DCE-US parameters and the prognosis of HCC patients after microwave ablation (MWA).
In advanced epithelial ovarian cancer patients, the standard of care is primary debulking surgery, followed by first-line chemotherapy often with bevacizumab addiction. In this context, some experiences have shown that a comprehensive treatment approach to surgery combined with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) could improve the prognosis.
Intestinal epithelial barrier dysfunction is crucial in the pathogenesis of intestinal and systemic diseases. Ferulic acid (FA) possesses promising antioxidant activities. In a previous study, we demonstrated potentially protective effects of FA against heat stress-induced intestinal epithelial barrier dysfunction in IEC-6 cells. However, the underlying mechanisms are unclear. The present study aimed to elucidate whether FA protects IEC-6 cells from heat stress-induced intestinal epithelial barrier dysfunct...
To retrospectively analyze the adverse effects of high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) in management of benign uterine diseases.
To compare overall local tumor progression (OLTP), defined as the failure of primary ablation or local tumor progression, with single applicator monopolar RFA, microwave ablation (MWA), cluster-RFA and multibipolar radiofrequency (mbpRFA) in the treatment of HCC≤5cm abutting large vessels (≥3mm).
Our objective was to determine the safety and ablation size of hydrochloric acid-perfused radiofrequency ablation (HCl-RFA) in liver tissue, prospectively using in vivo rabbit and ex vivo porcine liver models.
In pancreatic cancer, which is therapy resistant due to its hypoxic microenvironment, hyperthermia may enhance the effect of radio(chemo)therapy. The aim of this systematic review is to investigate the validity of the hypothesis that hyperthermia added to radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy improves treatment outcome for pancreatic cancer patients.
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a postoperative complication associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The incidence and risks factors for AKI after cytoreductive surgery with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (CRS-HIPEC) have not been fully studied. The purpose of this study was to identify perioperative risk factors predictive of AKI after CRS-HIPEC.
Cytoreductive surgery with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (CRS/HIPEC) is an emerging surgical procedure for peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC). CRS/HIPEC is a complicated treatment that requires multi-disciplinary teamwork (MDT) which may be lacking when establishing a CRS/HIPEC program. Herein, we report our preliminary treatment outcomes with the early implementation of an MDT model for CRS/HIPEC.
This study aims to analyse the efficacy of temperature-controlled radiofrequency ablation (RFA) in different tissues.
Breast conserving surgery is effective for breast cancer treatment but is associated with morbidity in particular high re-excision rates. We performed a systematic review to assess the current evidence for clinical outcomes with minimally invasive ablative techniques in the non-surgical treatment of breast cancer.
The present study examines the heating efficiency of a combination of manganese or cobalt ferrites in a binary (Co- or Mn-) ferrite nanoparticle form with magnetite, covered with citric acid to improve biocompatibility. The nanoparticle synthesis is based on the aqueous co-precipitation of proper salts, a facile, low-cost, environmentally friendly and high yield synthetic approach. By detailed structural and magnetic characterization, the direct influence of structural and magnetic features on magnetic hype...
The purpose of this study was to understand the subsurface thermal behaviour of a tissue phantom embedded with large blood vessels (LBVs) when exposed to near-infrared (NIR) radiation. The effect of the addition of nanoparticles to irradiated tissue on the thermal sink behaviour of LBVs was also studied.
