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.

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.

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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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 Péclet and Reynolds numbers of the perfusion flow and the membrane-to-channel area ratio.
Abstract: To evaluate the relationship between plasma 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) levels in Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy (ICP) patients.
