Positive results of regional perfusion chemotherapy for progressive and refractory ovarian cancer made public today

Scheme of Isolated Hypoxic Abdominal Perfusion with Chemofiltration (HAP-F)

Scheme of Isolated Hypoxic Abdominal Perfusion with Chemofiltration (HAP-F)

Hypoxic abdominal perfusion for progressive and refractory ovarian cancer is an effective therapy offering comparably long survival at good quality of life

BURGHAUSEN, GERMANY, April 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Medias Klinikum GmbH & Co KG, a private hospital specialized in surgical oncology, focusing on the treatment of primary and metastatic solid tumors, announces the publication of an observational cohort study of 45 patients entitled Hypoxic Isolated Abdominal Perfusion (HAP) chemotherapy for non-operable advanced staged ovarian cancer with peritoneal carcinosis: an experience in 45 platinum-refractory ovarian cancer patients in the peer-reviewed Indian Journal of Surgical Oncology (DOI: https://doi.org/10.1007/s13193-019-00922-9), that was conducted by Professor Dr. Karl R. Aigner, one of the world’s most experienced experts in the field of regional chemotherapy, and his group. In 1981, he developed the technique of isolated liver perfusion and was the first physician worldwide performing this method in humans using a heart-lung machine.

Commenting on the announcement, Professor Dr. Karl R. Aigner, Head of the Department of Surgical Oncology at Medias Klinikum, said, “Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death among all gynecological cancers. The standard therapy option is still complete cytoreduction when possible, combined with chemotherapy. Despite initial response rates of 70–80% to platinum-based combination chemotherapies with taxanes, platinum-resistant recurrences occur very frequently within 2 years. The shorter the recurrence-free interval, the lower the prospect of a renewed response to chemotherapy. While increased drug exposure could theoretically lead to a renewed response, they are not universally administered due to increased toxicity. The limiting factor of augmented systemic drug exposure always had been the increasing toxicity such as neuropathy with hand–foot syndrome, neutropenia, or fatigue to the point of exhaustion. Since mortality rates of ovarian cancer remain high and have hardly changed in the last three decades, more recent treatment options are being tested in the context of molecular biology research.”

He adds: “Prolonging life while maintaining or improving quality of life should be the basic requirement for any cancer treatment. No other fundamental necessity for any treatment to be recommended should actually apply. In a comparative study, we therefore looked at patients who were in progression following systemic chemotherapy and were then treated with regional chemotherapy. The main endpoint of the trial was quality of life, overall survival, and clinical response rates:

Complete or partial response on clinical symptoms was noted among 36.3% of all patients in stages IIIB/C and IV. Stable disease was achieved in 51.1% of patients. Complete disappearance of ascites was observed in 30% of patients after only two perfusions; 43% of patients reported a substantial reduction of abdominal pressure and fluid volume and a considerable improvement in general wellbeing. Profit in terms of high response rates was achieved by increased tumor toxicity of the anticancer drugs under hypoxic conditions. Due to subsequent chemofiltration, systemic drug exposure was reduced and toxic side effects kept low. Quality of life generally was reported undisturbed.”

The method of regional chemotherapy in terms of isolated hypoxic abdominal perfusion with chemofiltration (HAP-F) for multiply pre-treated patients with progressive and platinum-refractory stage III and IV ovarian cancer, in fact is an effective therapy that can break through chemoresistance and offering comparably long survival at good quality of life.

This initial data have been supplemented by further results obtained with a larger number of patients and presented during an oral presentation at the this year’s 14th International Symposium on Regional Cancer Therapies of the Society of Surgical Oncology (SSO) in Phoenix, AZ, USA.

The updated data will be sent for publication within the next month.

About Medias Klinikum, Department of Surgical Oncology
Medias Klinikum is a private clinic located in Burghausen (Bavaria), Germany specialized in regional chemotherapy (RCT), a targeted treatment modality for primary and metastatic tumors that generates high locoregional drug exposure and is less toxic. Looking back at 40 years of expertise in this special field of surgical oncology, Prof. Dr. med. Aigner, the medical director of the clinic, is one of the world’s most experienced experts in this treatment method. He has given numerous lectures on RCT or performed guest operations in the most renowned institutions in the USA, Japan, China, Israel, Egypt, Australia and a number of other countries. In 1981, Professor Aigner developed a technique for performing the first isolated liver perfusion in humans using a heart-lung machine, and over subsequent years a variety of additional surgical procedures and specialized catheters for isolated therapy of organs and parts of the body, including the treatment of pancreatic carcinoma.

Dr. Kamal K. Pourmoghadam (N/A:N/A)

Cardiac catheterization and coronary arteriography are among the most effective ways for diagnosis of heart problems. This is why they have been widely used all over the world, for over 80 years”

— Dr. Kamal Pourmoghadam, Orlando, Florida

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, April 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the leading cause of deaths worldwide – according to the World Health Organization, around 17.9 million people die from cardiovascular diseases, every year. Medical doctor and surgeon Kamal Pourmoghadam, MD has published an informational article on diagnostic procedures for CVDs that explains in easy-to-understand terms. The complete article will be published on the Blog of Dr. Pourmoghadam at https://drpourmoghadam.home.blog/

For those who do not know, cardiovascular disease is an umbrella term used for all the conditions that affect the heart and blood vessels. In the field of medical science, it is not uncommon to see newer diagnostic and treatment procedures replacing the old ones. However, when it comes to the field of cardiology, some of the very old processes are still being used to diagnose and treat different heart conditions because of their effectiveness – cardiac catheterization and coronary arteriography (also called coronary angiography) are among them.

Developed during the 20th century, cardiac catheterization and coronary arteriography are semi-invasive methods that are used to examine the human heart and coronary arteries (arteries that supply blood to the heart) without performing a surgery. While the doctor can sometimes choose to treat the disease while performing the procedure, depending on the patient’s condition and the severity of the disease, the procedures are mainly used for diagnostic purposes.

Cardiac Catheterization

Cardiac catheterization is one of the most widely used methods to identify birth defects and tumors in human heart. It is also used to measure the cardiac output i.e. the amount of blood pumped by the heart in a minute. It is the only available method that can directly measure the pressure of blood in the blood vessel that connects heart to the lungs as well as in each chamber of the heart.

How Cardiac Catheterization Is Performed?

The process of cardiac catheterization involves inserting a thin catheter (a hollow and flexible plastic tube) into a large blood vessel in the upper thigh or groin area, arm or the neck of the patient. This is done by making a small incision. After the catheter is inserted into the artery or vein, it is threaded through the blood vessel to the heart. Depending on the requirements, different types of instruments are placed on the tip of the catheter that can help the doctor to view the blood vessels from inside, measure blood pressure in heart chambers and in the coronary artery, and to take a blood or tissue sample from inside the heart.

Cardiac catheterization can be used for a variety of purposes, such as:
* Angiography – To inert a dye into the blood vessel to identify any blockages, which can be seen on X-rays.
* Angioplasty – To remove the blockage from a narrowed or blocked artery
* Valvuoplasty – To expand the opening of heart valve that has been narrowed down for some reason

Coronary Arteriography

As evident from the name, coronary arteriography, also called coronary angiography, is the procedure performed to examine coronary arteries. It is generally performed along with the cardiac catheterization to make sure any lingering heart issues can be identified.

How Is It Performed?

The procedure to perform coronary angiography is almost similar to that of cardiac catheterization. The only difference is that the catheter is threaded to the coronary arteries and not to the heart. Once the catheter reaches into the coronary arteries, a dye (called radiopaque contrast agent) is injected through it. As the dye enters into the arteries, their outline appears on a video screen through which the doctor is monitoring the procedure.

The images are recorded and are later used to detect any blockages and spasms that may have developed in the coronary arteries and have been affecting the functioning of heart. Depending on the location and severity of the blockage(s), the doctor will determine the right treatment procedure – angioplasty and bypass surgery are the procedures used to remove blockage(s) from the coronary arteries.

Early detection of heart problems can greatly improve the effectiveness of various treatments, which can then reduce the number of deaths caused by the cardiovascular diseases. Cardiac catheterization and coronary arteriography are among the most effective ways for diagnosis of heart problems. This is why they have been widely used all over the world, for over 80 years, explains Dr. Pourmoghadam.

About Dr. Kamal K. Pourmoghadam

Kamal Pourmoghadam, MD, is a pediatric cardiac surgeon at The Heart Center at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. He is board certified in general surgery, cardiothoracic surgery and congenital cardiac surgery.

Dr. Pourmoghadam earned his bachelor’s degree from University of California, Berkeley, and his medical degree from Albany Medical College in New York. He trained for adult cardiac surgery at the University of Miami, Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, and for congenital cardiac surgery at the University of Washington, Seattle Children’s Hospital in Seattle. Dr. Pourmoghadam is a professor of surgery at the University of Central Florida College of Medicine, practicing congenital cardiac surgery for over twenty years and has been active in clinical research. He has extensive experience in neonatal and infant cardiac surgery and has special interest in the repair of single ventricle physiology patients and research in univentricular hearts.

CCHR Documentary Exposes Psychiatric Profit Driven Mental Illness Strategy

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights is a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the eradication of abuses committed under the guise of mental health.

The documentary reveals the true insanity in our psychiatric health care system – profit-drive marketing at the expense of patients, families and communities.

This documentary is detailing how the psychiatric industry is attempting to penetrate into nearly every aspect of American life.”

— Citizens Commission on Human Rights

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, April 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Marketing of Madness is a closely researched film that documents a growing psychiatric strategy to label children and adults with mental disorders, which lack any medical basis of diagnosis, and to place them on powerful psychiatric drugs that are often addictive and have dangerous side effects.

Exposing the questionable ethics of the psychiatric profession's close marketing ties with pharmaceutical corporations, the documentary reveals the true insanity in our psychiatric health care system – profit-drive marketing at the expense of patients, families and communities.

The National Institute of Mental Health asserts that tens of millions of people in the USA alone have mental illnesses and that the number has been constantly growing for decades. This mysterious modern-day plague is explained by the profits generated by a “diagnosis” of mental illness lacking any physical test. The more that are diagnosed, the more profit for pharmaceutical supply chains and for psychiatrists who promote and prescribe these habit-forming drugs.

Additionally, the rationale that “he shot those school children because he had a mental illness” is exposed by this documentary as a red herring designed to focus attention away from the real cause of sudden and unexplained violence – psychiatric drugs with homicidal and suicidal side effects.

There is growing evidence of the link between psychotropic drugs prescribed to children, and epidemics of school violence. Seven out of the ten drugs linked to violence are either anti-depressants or ADHD drugs. Prescribing those labeled as mentally ill with hazardous drugs sends the disturbing message that commercial profits are more important than the safety of children and families. [1]

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights of Florida (CCHR), announced recently that they will be hosting a showing of the psychiatric documentary, The Marketing of Madness, in their downtown facility. The full-screen showing will be presented to visitors at no charge. To find out when the next screening of The Marketing of Madness will be held, please call CCHR at (727) 442-8820.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969.

Insurance is a long-term fixed contract. The new article by insurance law attorney Jared Stolz highlights a few things you should consider and do before buying.

Stolz & Associates, LLC (N/A:N/A)

Buying insurance is one of the most important financial decisions of your life, so it is wise to take every possible measure to ensure you don’t regret it later.”

— Jared Stolz, insurance lawyer in New Jersey

FLEMINGTON, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, April 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Buying insurance is a major investment and you want to make sure to take a wise decision. While you can ask around and take suggestions from your friends and family members regarding the company and the product, relying solely on them is a huge mistake, which unfortunately is more common than we think.

When it comes to buying an insurance policy, you need to understand that it is a long-term contract that usually cannot be amended or changed. Insurance law attorney Jared Stolz, Esq. provides his view in a new article. The complete article will be available on Mr. Stolz’ blog at https://jaredstolz.law.blog/

So, you want to make sure that it offers exactly what you are looking for. No matter what kind of insurance you are planning to buy – life, health, house, car, funeral, liability – here are a few things you should consider and do before taking the decision:

1. Understand Your Needs

Just because there are many different types of insurance available or your friend has bought ten different types of plans doesn’t mean you have to buy them as well. The purpose of insurance is to protect you from a huge financial loss in case of any unfortunate incident. So, it is wise to start from things that are most precious or expensive, like your house, life, health and business. You can always buy more, if you can afford, but it is better to get your basics and most valuable things covered first.

2. Do Your Research and Shop Around

The first rule of buying insurance is that no matter how attractive the policy looks, do not buy from the first insurance provider you come across. Always do research and explore your options before taking a decision. There are many insurance companies out there with different plans, coverage options, and terms. Evaluate and compare your options to make sure you take the best decision.

3. Know What the Plan Does Not Cover

When you get in touch with an insurance company or an agent, they will tell you all about what the plan covers. But they usually do not talk about what it does not cover, until you ask them. Make sure to ask the agent you are dealing with to explain all the exclusions, in detail. This is one of the most important factors to consider when buying insurance.

4. Always Read the Papers

We know how tedious it is to read those several pages long insurance papers with countless headings, clauses, and sub-clauses. But it is essential that you read them all so you know what you are paying for.
Even if your insurance agent has explained everything to you, make sure to take your time and read the papers carefully before signing them. Remember to not skim through the insurance papers. Many a times, the tiny clauses that people overlook while buying the insurance create issues later.

5. Make Sure You Can Easily Afford the Premium

For those who do not know, premium is the amount that the buyer has to pay, at regular intervals, throughout the policy period. Depending on the type of insurance and coverage it provides, the premium can range from a hundred to thousands of dollars. Failure to pay the premium amount can get you in trouble. So, always make sure that you can easily pay the premium of the insurance you are planning to purchase.

6. Reliability and Reputation of the Company

Unfortunately, frauds and scams are common in the insurance industry. Therefore, always confirm that the company you are buying insurance from is reliable and has a good reputation. Considering the claim settlement ratio of an insurance provider is a good way to determine its reliability. Low claim settlement ratio is a red flag and you should stay away from such companies. For those who do not know, claim settlement ratio is the ratio between the total number of filed claims and the approved ones.

The Bottom Line

Buying insurance is one of the most important financial decisions of your life, so it is wise to take every possible measure to ensure you don’t regret it later. No matter what type of insurance you are planning to purchase, always evaluate your options, weigh the pros and cons of each, and limit the risks as much as possible, to secure your investment.

What Is Osteoporosis and How to Prevent It? The new article by Leonard Marchinski, MD explains this common condition in layman’s terms.

LEONARD JOSEPH MARCHINSKI, M.D. (N/A:N/A)

Smoking and alcohol are the biggest threat to human health and a major contributor to osteoporosis. So if you are addicted to them, try breaking free from these bad habits.”

— Dr. Leonard J. Marchinski, Pennsylvania, orthopedic surgery

WYOMISSING, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, April 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — “What is Osteoporosis?” With the number of patients suffering from this medical condition on the rise, as 54 million Americans suffer from osteoporosis today, it is understandable why more and more people are interested in finding out the answer of what osteoporosis means, what its causes are, and how to prevent it.

Dr. Leonard J. Marchinski is providing his thoughts on this subject in a new article. The complete article will be available on Dr. Marchinski’s blog at https://leonardmarchinskimd.wordpress.com/ In this article, we’ll deal with all these three crucial components to help you learn about osteoporosis in more detail.

What Is Osteoporosis and How Is It Caused?

Osteoporosis is a health condition in which once-healthy bones become frail and fragile due to various hormonal changes, loss in calcium or vitamin D, or weakening of tissues. Osteoporosis is often known as a “silent disease” as it happens without any apparent or warning signs and symptoms. Strong bone tissues help us to move around without any hindrance. These tissues are regularly replaced through a process called “bone turnover”.

Our body regularly produces cells that are replaced with the dead cells of bone tissues. By the age of 25, bones reach their maximum bone mass, and cell turnover stops and remains stable for upcoming years. However, at the age of 40, these bone cells begin to die more than they are produced. Since these bone cells die away at a staggering speed, there is a dip in bone mass which eventually leads to the development of osteoporosis.However, age is not the only factor that plays a role in developing osteoporosis in an individual. There are many other reasons as well, and some of them are mentioned below along with preventive tips.

Diet

Your overall diet has a huge impact on your bone health. There are certain food items and nutrients that promote healthy bone growth. Some of which include milk, cheese, soya beans, tofu, nuts, etc. and nutrients like calcium and vitamin D. If your daily food intake is deprived of these food items and nutrients then you are at risk of developing osteoporosis. Therefore, it is important that your daily diet plan includes calcium or vitamin D-based foods. Also, avoid the high intake of caffeine and consumption of too much sodium as both of them contribute to the depletion of calcium in your body.

Exercise

Exercise is a crucial defense mechanism against osteoporosis. It helps in building and maintaining strong bones. People who do not exercise regularly tend to become lazy and inactive, resulting in weaker bone health. Weak bones are more prone to fractures and injuries than strong and able bones. This is why people should consider exercising on a daily basis. You don’t have to engage in heavy forms of exercises to become strong. As simple as walking, jogging, running, or cycling can do a world of good to make your body tissues stronger than ever.

Menopause and Testosterone

As women enter menopause, their estrogen levels drop drastically. Estrogen is essential in producing new bones in your body as it supports osteoblasts – cells that produce new bones. In the absence of estrogen, osteoblasts are unable to produce new hormones. As a result, osteoclasts – cells that absorb bones overpower them. This is the reason why menopausal women are at a greater risk of developing osteoporosis. On the other hand, in men, testosterone keeps the bones protected. When the levels of testosterone drop, it can cause bone loss, and ultimately osteoporosis. The intake of a prescribed drug – biphosphonates – slows down the breaking of bones in your body. This helps maintain the bone mass and lower the risk of fracture. There are several bisphosphonates that you can get such as alendronate, risedronate, ibandronate, and zoledronic acid. These are often given in the form of a tablet or an injection.

Certain Medications

There are some medications that can cause osteoporosis such as glucocorticoids, anti-seizure medications, Coumadin, PPIs, and aromatase inhibitors.

Excessive Smoking and Alcohol

There are certain chemicals in cigarettes that can make it exceedingly difficult for your body to consume calcium. These chemicals also hinder estrogen from functioning as it helps protect bones from weakening. Similarly, excessive consumption of alcohol also prevents bones from absorbing calcium, resulting in a loss in bone mass. Smoking and alcohol are the biggest threat to human health and a major contributor to osteoporosis. So if you are addicted to them, try breaking free from these bad habits.

Osteoporosis can develop in your body due to a number of reasons, but fortunately, many of the contributing factors of osteoporosis can be avoided with the preventive measures mentioned above.

Recognized for low infections, low readmissions, low complications, high patient satisfaction, and high value by The SafeCare Group®

Congratulations to Natchitoches Regional Medical Center on achieving 100 SafeCare Hospitals for the second consecutive year”

— Yisrael M Safeek, MD, MBA, Chairman & CEO of The SafeCare Group

LEXINGTON, KY, USA, April 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — For the second consecutive year Natchitoches Regional Medical Center was recognized a 100 SafeCare Hospitals® by The SafeCare Group® for low infections, low readmissions, low complications, high patient satisfaction, and high value.

“Congratulations to Natchitoches Regional Medical Center on achieving 100 SafeCare Hospitals for the second consecutive year,” Yisrael Safeek, MD, MBA, CEO, The SafeCare Group. “The organization is being faithful to its motto of ‘inspiring excellence everyday’ as it is one of 100 hospitals joining Cleveland Clinic and Mayo Clinic which are at the top of the 2019 list.”

100 SafeCare Hospitals has become synonymous for Recognizing Healthcare Excellence® from its holistic, evidence-based metrics that reflect a balanced scorecard of healthcare excellence. Recognizing Healthcare Excellence refers to 100 SafeCare Hospitals that excel in evidence-based metrics of the hospital value based (HVBP), hospital readmissions reduction (HRRP), and hospital acquired conditions reduction (HACRP) programs.

100 SafeCare Hospitals is truly disruptive to the healthcare status quo as hospitals that performed poorly on these evidence-based metrics receive a financial penalty from the CMS. The 100 SafeCare Hospitals listings have the two-pronged goal of giving objective transparency to consumers and incentivizing hospitals to improve care and reduce unnecessary errors that harm patients.
