Cancer is deadly disease which is caused due to uncontrolled growth of the cells and forms from the extra mass tissue known as tumour. The loss of apoptotic nature by the cells in their metabolic pathway leads to cancer. Cigarette smoking, tobacco intake, alcohol intake, poor diet and exposure to UV rays lead to cancer. Different organs can be effect by cancer cells like lungs, kidney, eyes, heart, brain etc. Cancer cells also spread in blood stream and causes blood cancer. The person who works… 

Mechanistic Insight into Cancer Aetiology and Therapeutic Management by Natural Metabolites

TLDR
In this chapter, the recent plant-derived secondary metabolites with potential for therapeutic management of cancer are discussed.

Tankyrase inhibitors: emerging and promising therapeutics for cancer treatment

TLDR
The current review offers an understanding of the ongoing improvements on new lead structures as inhibitors of tankyrase and their activities and a special spotlight is set on the structure-activity relationship, molecular docking, polypharmacology profile, and binding mode at the active center.

Identifying Cancer Subtypes Using Unsupervised Deep Learning

TLDR
Two new clustering algorithms for cancer subtype identification are introduced, which fuses the information of gene expression and pathway database to group samples into biologically meaningful clusters and out performed in clustering short term and long term survivals by lowest p-value in log rank test and Kaplan-Meier survival analysis.

Bayesian Analysis of Cancer Data Using a 4-Component Exponential Mixture Model

TLDR
A novel four-component mixture model under Bayesian estimation is preferred to estimate the average number of incidences and death of both genders in different age groups in Pakistan and it is noted from analysis of real data that the Bayes estimates under LINEX loss assuming Jeffreys' prior is more efficient for the no.

Etiology of Obesity, Cancer, and Diabetes

A Short Note on Cancer

TLDR
The person who works in the chemical factories, nuclear reactors, drainage system and mining are most prone to cancer, the most cancer causing agents are aluminium, arsenic, radon, lead and lead compounds.

Amplified Hypoxia Induced Tumor-Cell Death In vitro

TLDR
A novel therapeutic approach of targeting tumor cells by depriving oxygen from them through increased hypoxia which surpasses their minimum requirement for oxygen; the latter achieved by interfering at the interface of oxygen diffusion between the blood vessels and tumor cells is discussed.

Multicellular Spheroid Culture Models: Applications in prostate Cancer Research and Therapeutics

TLDR
The present review provides up-to-date information regarding the significance of MCS culture for identification of mechanisms underlying human malignancies, including prostate cancer, and possible targets for prostate cancer therapies.

Reversible Hepatic Cytolysis Secondary to Sunitinib in Metastatic Renal Carcinoma

TLDR
The case of a patient treated for metastatic renal carcinoma who presented a hepatic cytolysis after introduction the sunitinib: 50mg/day is reported, this is a second report case in the English literature in the authors' knowledge.

Emerging prognostic biomarkers in non small cell lung cancer patients: Impact of treatment with nimesulide (COX-2 inhibitor) combined with chemotherapy

TLDR
Nimesulide appears to boost the efficacy of the traditional chemotherapy as its co-administration showed encouraging effects on improving and normalization of the proangiogenic parameters levels and in turn the vascular supply of tumors.

Cytopathological Diagnosis of Non Small Cell Lung Cancer: RecentAdvances Including Rapid On-Site Evaluation, Novel EndoscopicTechniques and Molecular Tests

TLDR
Major issues raised by cytological diagnosis of NSCLC and molecular testing on cytological specimen are discussed in this article.

Association of Butyric Acid Produced by Periodontopathic Bacteria with Progression of Oral Cancer

TLDR
BA/NaB increases podoplanin expression and cell migration in certain OSCC cell lines, suggesting that the progression of periodontal disease may promote the progression to oral squamous cell carcinoma via a Podoplanin-dependent pathway.

Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy with S-1 for Patients with Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma

TLDR
The data indicates that S-1 caused only mild toxicity and had highly effective antitumor activity and the RR of S-2 NAC might predict regional lymph node metastasis, and the relationship between the RR and the clinicopathologic behaviors is examined.

Combined Inhibition of Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor and Cyclooxygenase-2 as a Novel Approach to Enhance Radiotherapy.

TLDR
Compared to single or double agent approaches, concurrent celecoxib, erlotinib and IR was the most effective regimen at reducing clonogenic survival, increasing apoptosis and inhibiting tumor growth in vivo.

Role of Surgery in the Treatment of Radiation-Induced Sarcomas of the Head and Neck

TLDR
Patients suffering from radiation-induced sarcomas have a poor prognosis, in keeping with existing literature, and treatment is mainly by surgery aiming at resection with a curative intent.

Role of Tumor Suppressor Protein p53 in Apoptosis and Cancer Therapy

TLDR
A review of the recent advances in p53 research aims to update the current related articles and provide a further understanding about such molecular changes relevant to trigger imbalances in the regulation of apoptosis in cancer.
