Lung cancer in today’s perspective

Original papers: 

Sleep-disordered breathing in male subjects with a history of nose-throat surgery

Dan Teculescu, Lahoucine Benamghar

 

Obstructive sleep apnoeas (OSA) are due to repetitive closures of the collapsible pharyngeal airway; any increase in the upstream airways resistance represents a promoting factor (1) . In children the most frequent cause of OSA is an adenotonsillar hypertrophy; therefore surgery is able to cure the condition in most (2) , but not all patients (3,4) . In adults, tonsillar hypertrophy can be responsible for OSA (5) and tonsillectomy was demonstrated to reduce the number of apneas (6) .

Roxana Chirilă 1 , Alina Croitoru 1,2 , Traian Burcos 1,3

 

Ovarian tumors are a heterogeneous group of neoplasms that affect the ovary ranging from benign to malignant. Ovarian cancer is the second most common gynaecological malignancy (1) with an increasing incidence and late stage detection - 75% in advanced stages (2) . It causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system. Depending on the stage the 5-year survival rates vary from 80-90% in early stages to 25% in advanced stages of disease (2) . Pleural effusions can be found in association with ovarian tumors, but they do not always prove a metastatic dissemination.

The most common form of risk behavior among young adults is smoking 2 . Teenagers and young students are especially vulnerable and represent a good target population for smoking prevention (3) . Pharmacists are well-positioned to provide tobacco prevention and cessation services and their involvement is encouraged by several organizations, including several Pharmacists Associations and the WHO (1) . A previous study performed of UMPh TM dental students (2005) indicates that university years are a crucial period in the initiation or abandonment of smoking behavior (2) .
