In 2014 the CDC reports that 4,115 women died from cervical cancer that was caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) (CDC.GOV, 2017). While other cancer is not preventable by protection of immunization, Cervical Cancer and Genital Warts is mostly preventable. We are raising our children in a time where the majority of our parents and grandparents are succumbing to different types of cancers, why wouldn 't we want there to be a law insuring every teenager is given this vaccine against this terrible disease despite religious, or personal ideas against vaccinations. Although my reason for this paper is to educate my peers on the extreme importance of getting this vaccine early as possible, it also ties into my choice of degree of Health Care
In this case, she presented with postmenopausal bleeding, which endometrial carcinoma become the main differential diagnosis until it is proven otherwise. The main onus is to exclude carcinoma of the endometrium or cervix and premalignant endometrial hyperplasia with cytological atypia, which account for about 20% of cases.1 This then bring us to the question on how do we differentiate and stage the disease. Endometrial hyperplasia involves the proliferation of endometrial glands that results in a greater than normal gland-to-stromal ratio.2 This will cause the endometrial wall to be thicker but it is important to tell the
However, with the new immunosuppressives, Tissue typing became less important and in the case of Cadaveric Kidney transplantation this is not done. • Shortage of organs • Complications (Surgical or Medical) Complications after transplantation may be related to the anesthetic, the surgery itself, bleeding, infections, vascular thrombosis and urinary complications. Transplantation is not possible without immunosupression drugs , except in identical twins and this makes the recipients vulnerable to infections (bacterial, viral, parasitic and fungi). There are also very vulnerable to opportunistic infections. Herpes zoster and CMV (Cytomegalovirus) are common among transplanted patients as other infections.
Working on the success of Abraxane, nab-rapamycin was also prepared. Rapamycin (also known as sirolimus) works by inhibiting the signals from intracellular kinase (mTOR) which further inhibits cell proliferation. Rapamycin also had poor solubility similar to PTX hence, nab rapamycin was prepared to overcome this barrier and increase its efficacy. The nanoformulation proved to be efficacious in preclinical studies (breast tumor xenograft model) and the drug (ABI-009) is undergoing Phase I-III trials in humans for multiple carcinomas including advanced sarcoma, advanced malignant perivascular epithelioid cell tumor, non muscle invasive bladder cancer and recurrent or refractory solid tumors [82,
Summary: Prior to starting my research, I had a very rudimentary understanding of IPF. As I look at my research I am able to connect some of the pathophysiology to the tests that are usually performed for diagnosis. For example, the increase scarring and deposition of fibrotic tissue in the lung is seen as reticulonodular opacities on a chest x-ray. Additionally, the spirometry test results are consistent with my understanding of restrictive diseases and their effects on FEV1 and FVC. As far as the treatments go, Pirfenidone is an anti-fibrotic agent that inhibits collagen synthesis and slows the progression of the disease by reducing the amount of connective tissue deposition in the lungs.
• Incidental gallbladder cancer: GB cancer may be an incidental finding at LC, with an incidence ranging from 0.3% to 5.0%. Uncertainty about the diagnosis, lack of clarity regarding of the degree of tumor spread, or postoperative identification of cancer on pathologic examination of a routine cholecystectomy specimen should warrant early reoperation (Rakić, et al. 2014). National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines advocate simple cholecystectomy as definitive treatment for patients with mucosal (T1a) disease and a negative CD margin; all other patients (ie, those with involvement of muscle or beyond, a positive CD margin, or a positive cystic lymph node) should undergo repeat operation for extended cholecystectomy (which includes hepatic resection, lymphadenectomy and, possibly, bile duct excision) (Eil, et al.
Primary Keyword: mesothelioma survival rates Secondary keyword: 1) Methods to Improve Your Mesothelioma Survival Rate 2) Mesothelioma Prognosis | Understanding Survival and Cures A Brief Introduction: Mesothelioma is a form of cancer which mainly affects the lungs’ membrane lining and the abdomen. It is considered as one of the serious and aggressive diseases. The disease is very hard to be diagnosed. And till now no such cure has been known for handling this disease. However, there are such treatments like surgery and chemotherapy that can help you to lessen the harmful effects of this disease.
Needlestick injuries are injuries due to exposed and improper use of needles or sharps. The ANA in 2010, commemorated the 10th anniversary of the Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act, which improved protection against these injuries that expose health care workers to potentially deadly blood borne pathogens. These injuries, unfortunately, are still occurring today and far too often. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in March 2000, estimated that approximately 62-88 percent of sharps and needlestick injuries are preventable. Health care workers that handle sharp devices or equipment like scalpels, sutures, needles, phlebotomy devices or blood collection devices are all at risk but nurses are at a very high risk for being exposed to these preventable injuries which exposes them to numerous bloodborne pathogens especially deadly viruses such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV/AIDs.
It is a common symptom of ovarian cysts, so this sign is often ignored, but should not. 8. Rectal bleeding One of the first symptoms of colon cancer is rectal bleeding or blood in the stool. In case you notice these symptoms, you should immediately contact your doctor. 9.
It is a leading cause of maternal death in the 1st trimester about 16.7/100,000 patient. The common site of ectopic pregnancy is at the distal part of the fallopian tube which is the ampulla about 97% and isthmus, proximal part of the fallopian tube is the 2nd commonest site about 4%. Other than that are cornual 2.5%, ovary 0.4%, cervix 0.1% and abdominal 0.03%. In her case, the ectopic pregnancy can happen in the tube and it is likely will be either one of the sites. There are many risk factors that can contribute to ectopic pregnancy and it can be divided to high, moderate and low risk as it shows in the table below
A human papillomavirus (HPV) is transmitted sexual behavior and a major cause of cervical cancer; about 70% of all cervical cancer occur HPVs 16 and 18 (Markowitz et al., 2013). An estimated prevalence of a HPV infection in the US was 39.9 million women and approximately 8.88million women among aged 15 to 24 years had HPV infections in 2008 (Satterwhite et al., 2013). A HPV Vaccine has been approved and has been recommended in females aged 9 to 26 years in the United States since 2006 (Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention [CDC], 2014). In accordance of comparing the post prevalence of HPV infections to the pre vaccine era, about 6% of vaccine type prevalence decreased in aged 14 to 19 years female groups (Markowitz et al., 2013). On
Most HPV types cause benign warts, but just 15-20 kinds can cause cancer. Two members of the HPV family (16 and18) cause some 70% of cervical cancers (Carlyle,2014). There will always be someone who is allergic to something or does not respond properly to vaccines. There is always something going on that we don 't know about. We know medicine is not one size fits all, and there will be risks for some people.
