Orbital rhabdomyosarcoma with skin metastasis: a case report.
BMC Res Notes
PUBLISHED: 09-23-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Rhabdomyosarcoma is a soft tissue neoplasm that usually arises in the head and neck region and genitourinary tract. Skin metastasis of rhabdomyosarcoma is extremely rare; of thirteen cases reported in the literature, most were children younger than 10 years and only three cases have been reported in adults.

Vismodegib: the proof of concept in Basal cell carcinoma.
Clin Med Insights Oncol
PUBLISHED: 01-01-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Although basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common cancer worldwide, its metastatic dissemination is exceptional. Before 2012, we had a few treatment options available for metastatic or locally advanced cases. Management of these patients was complicated due to the lack of scientific data, the deterioration of a patient's general status, the patient's advanced age, and the presence of multiple comorbidities. The hedgehog signaling pathway is dysregulated in BCC. The exploration of this signaling pathway yielded to a major milestone in the treatment of advanced BCC. Vismodegib (GDC-0449), an oral small-molecule agent that targets the Hedgehog signaling pathway, demonstrates high levels of activity in clinical trials. It was approved in January 2012 for the treatment of locally advanced or metastatic BCC. Vismodegib confirms, once again, the interest in exploring the signal transduction pathways in cancers.

The Practice of Medical Oncology in Morocco: The National Study of the Moroccan Group of Trialist in Medical Oncology (EVA-Onco).
ISRN Oncol

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Objective. To determine the current shortfall of medical oncologists (MOs) and the projected supply. Background. Morocco, the medical oncology (MO) is a relatively new specialty. Medical oncology was recognized as a separate specialty in 1994 but the real taking-off was done only since the 2000s after the creation of the chair of medical oncology in the University of Rabat. The GRIOMM (Moroccan group of trialist in medical oncology) was created in 2011 and conducted its first study, EVA-onco, concerning the practice of medical oncology in Morocco in 2011. Design. EVA-onco is a prospective study concerning the practice of medical oncology in Morocco in 2011. Results. The entire public cancer centers completed the survey. There were no missing data. The number of medical oncologist per 100000/habitants in Morocco was 0.09. The average number of new patients seen per medical oncologist was 718 patients (ranging by state from 97 to 1875). The shortfall of MOs was estimated at 26 at least in 2011 according to the national recommendations. Conclusions. Since 2010, a national strategy to increase the capacity of MO workforce existed. The current shortfall of MO is expected to disappear in the future.

Implication of tumor microenvironment in the resistance to chemotherapy in breast cancer patients.
Curr Opin Oncol
PUBLISHED: 09-16-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Chemotherapy is a cornerstone treatment in patients with early breast cancer. Although some cancer cell-related predictors are emerging, the indications of chemotherapy and the choice of chemotherapy regimen are not individualized enough, emphasizing the need for new predictors. This review will summarize recent advances concerning the implication of tumor microenvironment in the response to chemotherapy.

Estrogen receptor expression and docetaxel efficacy in patients with metastatic breast cancer: a pooled analysis of four randomized trials.
Oncologist
PUBLISHED: 04-26-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Differences in the efficacy of various chemotherapies in patients with estrogen receptor (ER)(+) metastatic breast cancer are not well understood. In the present study, we assessed the efficacy of docetaxel in patients with metastatic breast cancer according to ER expression.

CXCR4 expression in early breast cancer and risk of distant recurrence.
Oncologist
PUBLISHED: 11-25-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4) has been demonstrated to have a critical role in the early metastatic process. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic value of CXCR4 expression in primary breast tumors and describe correlations with the occurrence of metastasis in organs expressing the CXCR4 ligand stromal cell-derived factor 1 (i.e., liver, lung, brain, and bone).

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
