Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.060
Pages: 
487–94
Synopsis: 
This study investigated the effects of chemotherapy on testosterone levels in testicular cancer patients. The hormone levels affected due to chemotherapy were differentiated from the effects of the tumour itself by comparing the hormone levels before the onset of chemotherapy to levels measured during and after completion of chemotherapy.

ABSTRACT

Background: The use of chemotherapy for the treatment of cancer began at the start of the 20th century in an attempt to narrow the universe of chemicals that affect the disease. Metastatic testicular cancer has always been sensitive to chemotherapy.

Influence of Silver-hydroxyapatite Nanocomposite Coating on Biofilm Formation of Joint Prosthesis and Its Mechanism

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.179
Pages: 
506–13
Synopsis: 
The main reason for biomaterial-related refractory infections is biofilm formation caused by bacterial adhesion on the surface of materials. Silver-hydroxyapatite (Ag/HA) nanocomposite coating can inhibit the formation of biofilm, but its mechanism is not clear. In this study, we will determine the amount of biofilm on the Ag/HA composite coating, detect the sustained release rates of silver ions in simulated body fluid, the effects on the biofilm formation of bacteria and the expression of genes related to biofilm formation of S aureus.

ABSTRACT

Background: The main reason for biomaterial related refractory infections is biofilm formation caused by bacterial adhesion on the surface of materials. Silver-hydroxyapatite (Ag/HA) nanocomposite coating can inhibit the formation of biofilm, but its mechanism is not clear.
