An integrative approach for managing a patient with cancer should target the multiple biochemical and physiologic pathways that support tumour development and minimize normal-tissue toxicity. Angiogenesis is a key process in the promotion of cancer. Many natural health products that inhibit angiogenesis also manifest other anticancer activities. The present(More)
The herbalist has access to hundreds of years of observational data on the anticancer activity of many herbs. Laboratory studies are expanding the clinical knowledge that is already documented in traditional texts. The herbs that are traditionally used for anti-cancer treatment and that are anti-angiogenic through multiple interdependent processes(More)
TwoRayGround propagation model to evaluate analytical results. I. BACKGROUND Mobile Ad-Hoc NETwork (MANET) is a self-configuring network of mobile nodes connected with wireless link in which each mobile acts as specialized router, thus, it is capable of forwarding packets to other nodes. Vehicular Ad-Hoc NETwork (VANET) is a special type of MANET used to(More)
Traditional Chinese Medicine (tcm) may be integrated with conventional Western medicine to enhance the care of patients with cancer. Although tcm is normally implemented as a whole system, recent reductionist research suggests mechanisms for the effects of acupuncture, herbs, and nutrition within the scientific model of biomedicine. The health model of(More)
Some cancer patients use therapeutic massage to reduce symptoms, improve coping, and enhance quality of life. Although a meta-analysis concludes that massage can confer short-term benefits in terms of psychological wellbeing and reduction of some symptoms, additional validated randomized controlled studies are necessary to determine specific indications for(More)
propagation model. The SUMO simulator is used to generate a random mobility pattern for VANETs. From the extensive simulations, we observe that AODV outperforms among all three protocols. I. INTRODUCTION MANETs comprise of wireless mobile nodes that are communicating with each other without any centralized control. MANETs are self-starting network and(More)
BACKGROUND Opioid analgesics used for analgesia are associated with sedation, respiratory depression and post-operative nausea and vomiting. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as diclofenac are a safe and effective alternative with opioid-sparing effect. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effectiveness of pre-operative rectal diclofenac suppository (1(More)
