The progress of traditional Chinese medicine in the treatment of aplastic anemia

prospective, randomized, and multicenter studies are the main research directions in the future. Innovation is needed in the scientific research in TCM. The TCM research that meets the clinical needs, aims to improve the level of prevention and treatment of major diseases in China, will get further developed. Source of Foundation The present study was supported by the Special Research Funds for Traditional Chinese Medicine Industry from State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine (201407001) and National Natural Science Foundation Project (grant No. 81774092

Determination of dosimetric parameters for shielded 153Gd source in prostate cancer brachytherapy

calculations. Overall radiation time is thus prolonged using this irradiation technique. The I-RSBT could be promising also for some other sites in brachytherapy like gynecology or breast brachytherapy. It is interesting as a subject of further research. Additionally, the dose distribution around the source in shielded mode is less symmetrical compared to unshielded source which could be accounted as a disadvantage ( Figure 7 ). However this can be compensated in treatment planning. This leads to “Intensity Modulated Brachytherapy” which is considered as an innovation at

A current review of dose-escalated radiotherapy in locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer

individualized increments for different patients, and adopting new technologies and new equipment such as new radiation therapy, no consensus has been achieved yet. It is expected that the ongoing clinical trials and explorations for increasing doses of radiotherapy can further improve control rate survival in LANSCLC.

The biology and clinical potential of circulating tumor cells

-derived CTC cultures were first established 134 , though implementation of the procedure into regular clinical practice has proven to be difficult due to the low efficiency of available detection methods as well as prolonged periods needed to establish cell lines. 135 CTC-based patient-derived xenografts represent an innovation in cancer research with the potential to guide therapy or pre-clinical drug testing and biomarker identification. CTCs are isolated from the patient’s blood and injected into immunocompromised animals. Subsequently generated xenografts can be used

The Symbiotic Relationship between Authors, Medical Journals, Editors and the Peer Review System

privileged position to benefit the practice and delivery of medicine. The concern of the peer review process is to identify and suggest for publication, manuscripts that are authoritative and contribute to the advancement of medical practice. In turn, these papers become the foundation for further research and the basis of day-to-day medical practices. It is central to medical research in that it appraises studies for competence, importance, and innovation by experienced experts in a particular field of study. The process is frequently an essential determinant of an

Stosowanie leków biopodobnych w hematoonkologii – stanowisko Polskiego Towarzystwa Hematologów i Transfuzjologów

biologicznego innym jest różna. Podczas gdy w większości państw nie jest możliwa automatyczna substytucja, w Polsce nie jest ona zabroniona. Wynika to najpewniej z braku jakiegokolwiek dokumentu regulującego zasady zastępowalności leków referencyjnych lekami biopodobnymi. W efekcie zarówno Ministerstwo Zdrowia, jak i Narodowy Fundusz Zdrowia propagują pełną zamienialność leków biologicznych z tą samą molekułą. W Stanach Zjednoczonych Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act (BPCIA) również dopuszcza automatyczną substytucję leków biologicznych uznanych przez FDA za
