In vitro Technical Aspects of Anti-Gene IGF-I Vaccines against Glioma

Authors: Jerzy Trojan, Tatiana Castillo, Gabriela Quintero, Adama Ly, Pedro Penagos, Alexander Shevelev, You-Chun Lone, Edwin Paez, Oscar Gutierrez, Ignacio Briceno, Maciej Bierwagen, Carlos Rojas, Jaime Arias, Heliodor Kasprzak, Adis Ayala, Yuexin X Pan and Annabelle Trojan

Abstract: Research on glioblastoma has demonstrated a significant increase in IGF-I gene expression in this brain tumor. After suppression of IGF-I expression using anti-gene IGF-I technologies, glioma cells become immunogenic, expressing MHC-I. While injected in vivo, they induce an immune response mediated by T-CD8 lymphocytes. These cells, applied as autologous anti-cancer vaccines have increased the median survival of glioblastoma patients up to 18 months, but often up to two-three years.

Need for Physician Empowerment in front of Artificial Intelligence Overruling

Authors: Francis Roger France

Abstract: Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become an essential part of the computer technology industry. Machine learning, knowledge engineering, patterns identification, problem solving and robots are making important progresses. Health care might benefit from these new tools by helping physicians to make decisions in complex clinical situations, to diagnose diseases, to recognize images, to adapt treatments to individual cases and even to interact by using robots allowing object manipulation. However, machine capabilities depend on human programming choices. Furthermore, AI can only be as smart as the data set served.

Influence of Confounding Evidence Based Risk Factors Triggering the Incidence of HIV Antibodies among Screened Population of Niger Delta Extraction

Authors: Azuonwu Obioma and Azuonwu Testimonies Chikanka

Abstract: The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is transmittable through body fluids such as blood, breast milk and semen. Determination of its prevalence and associated risk factors are important especially in rural areas where the dwellers pay little or no concern to their health. This study was carried out in seven locations in Ahoada East Local Government Area of Rivers State, thus 1000 subjects were purposively recruited and screened for HIV1 and HIV1 and 2 respectively.

Utility of Exome Sequencing Databases in Validating Genetic Variants Associated with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia

Authors: Tyler J Mouw, Alexander Balmaceda, Tejal Brahmbhatt and Peter J DiPasco

Abstract: Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (MEN) syndromes and Familial Medullary Thyroid Cancer have a well-documented genetic origin; However, it is not always clear whether genetic variation represents a pathologic vs. normal rare variant.

Letter To Editor Volume 2 Issue 1

Fluoroquinolones Awareness Cipro/ciprofloxacin, Levaquin/levofloxacin, Avelox/moxifloxacin

Authors: Charles C Maack

Abstract: Please recognize that I am not a Medical Doctor. Rather, I do consider myself a medical detective. I have been an avid student researching and studying prostate cancer as a survivor and continuing patient since 1992. I have dedicated my retirement years to continued deep research and study in order to serve as an advocate for prostate cancer awareness, and, from an activist patient's viewpoint, as a mentor to voluntarily help patients, caregivers, and others interested develop an understanding of this insidious men's disease, its treatment options, and the treatment of the side effects that often accompany treatment.

A Study of Nuclear Medicine Contrast Retention in Vascular Access Ports

Authors: Michael S Gossman, Huaiyu Zheng, Junling Li and Chin K Ng

Abstract: Vascular access ports were investigated to determine the retention rate of injected radiotracers during PET scan acquisition. A total of 30 ports were tested, including 3 different port models from a single manufacturer.

Investigation of MRI Contrast Release from Vascular Access Ports after Priming

Authors: Michael S Gossman, Zhu Mingming, Huaiyu Zheng and Chin K Ng

Abstract: Vascular ports designed for venous access were injected with gadolinium contrast and imaged using MRI. Incrementally, the ports were flushed with saline and scanned to determine the amount of flush volume necessary to rid the injected gadolinium.

Dimensional Analysis and Constitutive Equations of Quantitative Microdialysis

Authors: CF Chen

Abstract: As a membrane-based sampling technique microdialysis can be quantified by the relative recovery and the time-to-reach-the-steady-state in sampling. In this paper dimensional analysis is applied to show that the performance can be collectively determined by three dimensionless numbers, the P├ęclet and Reynolds numbers of the perfusion flow and the membrane-to-channel area ratio.
