In the current study, researchers report on a new class of drug-like molecules that exploit our increasingly nuanced understanding of another facet of apoptosis regulation to specifically target cell death in cancer cells--work which has the potential to further expand our armamentarium of drugs to fight neoplastic disease.
In the past decade, attention has turned to pepsin (a protein-digesting enzyme produced in the stomach), which can injure laryngeal/esophageal epithelium and produce inflammatory disorders and neoplastic disease.
The psychological distress, fear, anxiety about the results of diagnostic tests, postoperative complications, the body image of the patient after surgery, changes in their body and generally in their quality of life, are issues that affect the psychology of a patient with neoplastic disease after surgery.
