BACKGROUND Electrotherapy effectiveness at different doses has been demonstrated in preclinical and clinical studies; however, several aspects that occur in the tumor growth kinetics before and after treatment have not yet been revealed. Mathematical modeling is a useful instrument that can reveal some of these aspects. The aim of this paper is to describe(More)
BACKGROUND Unperturbed tumor growth kinetics is one of the more studied cancer topics; however, it is poorly understood. Mathematical modeling is a useful tool to elucidate new mechanisms involved in tumor growth kinetics, which can be relevant to understand cancer genesis and select the most suitable treatment. METHODS The classical(More)
We report the case of a patient who presented a pineal tumor. A partial resection was performed. The biopsy showed a glioneuroma rosette forming tumor, considered as WHO grade I. The patient was observed for 13 months and experienced significant tumor growth. Radiotherapy was performed. Instead of scarce evidence of the topic and treatment modalities in(More)
An aetiopathogenetic analysis of non-endemic nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) in European and Southern American patient groups was performed. Specifically, the study sought to determine the proportion of Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV)-positive tumour cells in NPC patients in two very different populations (Europe and South America) in areas not associated with a(More)
Confusing results have been reported regarding the influence of nutritional status on myostatin levels. Some studies indicate that short-term fasting results in increased myostatin mRNA levels in skeletal muscle, evident in several species. In contrast, other studies have demonstrated either a decrease or no change in myostatin levels during fasting. In the(More)
