Synopsis: 
Glioblastoma multiforme is the most malignant and the most common primary brain tumour worldwide. This initial study was undertaken in order to investigate the demographics of this very malignant tumour in our population using data from the recently started Intracranial Tumour Registry at the University Hospital of the West Indies.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most malignant and most common primary brain tumour worldwide. This study was undertaken to investigate the demographics of this tumour in Jamaica as there is to date no such published data. Data from the recently started Intracranial Tumour Registry (ITR) at the University Hospital of the West Indies was used.

Testosterone Level in Testicular Cancer Patients after Chemotherapy

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.
