Total neoadjuvant treatment of locally advanced rectal cancer with high risk factors in Slovenia

in 22 fractions. 10 Concomitant chemotherapy with capecitabine was administered from the first to the last day of the radiation treatment (including weekends) at a daily dose of 825 mg/m2/12 hours if IMRT/VMAT SIB technique was used and only on RT days in case of 3D conformal RT. During radiotherapy the patients were evaluated weekly to check out acute toxicity according to the Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0 and compliance with the intended treatment plan during CRT. 11 Two cycles of consolidation ChT with CAPOX were delivered

LncRNA PVT1 promotes proliferation and invasion through enhancing Smad3 expression by sponging miR-140-5p in cervical cancer

in protein levels, respectively ( Figure 1C and 1D , P < 0.01). Figure 1 Expressions of PVT1, miR-140-5p and Smad3 in normal cervical epithelial cells and cervical cancer cell lines. Expression levels of PVT1 (A) , miR-140-5p (B) and Smad3 (C) were detected by qRT-PCR. (D) Protein expressions of Smad3 were detected by western blotting. T he data are presented as means ± SD of three independent experiments. Statistical significance compared with the normal cervical epithelial cells is indicated by * P < 0.05 and ** P < 0.01.

Radiological findings of porcine liver after electrochemotherapy with bleomycin

with bolus tracking in abdominal aorta, and 3 subsequent phases in 30-second intervals (at 30, 60 and 90 seconds after arterial phase). Image analysis All radiologic findings were interpreted in consensus by three radiologists (M.B., N.B., R.D.) with more than 10-years of experience in liver imaging. CEUS perfusion curve, presenting the signal intensity, was analyzed with the US machine built-in software. CT images were evaluated with a free and open source software program Horos ( ) and Impax 6 (Agfa HealthCare, Mortsel, Belgium
