Alzheimer's Disease

  • Creator:   Chinese Medical Journal
  • Updated:   3/23/2021
  • Contains:  7 items
Alzheimer's disease (AD) refers to a particular onset and course of cognitive and functional decline associated with age together with a particular neuropathology. Metabolic, vascular, and inflammatory changes, as well as comorbid pathologies are key components of the disease process. The clinical diagnosis may be difficult, but diagnostic methods have been introduced and proven to be accurate in supporting the clinical diagnosis. Application of these methods increases, partly due to improved awareness of cognitive symptoms and the relevance of early detection and diagnosis, in particular when more efficient disease-modifying drugs become available.

Intestinal Microbiota

  • Creator:   Chinese Medical Journal
  • Updated:   3/23/2021
  • Contains:  9 items
The digestive tract harbours the largest and most complex microbial community of the human body, the intestinal microbiota, including about 800 different bacteria species. Bacterial colonization of human gut by environmental microbes, beginning immediately after birth, becomes more complex with increasing age, with a high degree of variability among human individuals. The gastrointestinal tract is the main site where environmental microorganisms and antigens interact with the host, through intensive cross-talks. Gut microbiota is essential for intestinal development, homeostasis and protection against pathogenic challenge.

Lymphoma

Lymphoma is cancer that begins in infection-fighting cells of the immune system, called lymphocytes. These cells are in the lymph nodes, spleen, thymus, bone marrow, and other parts of the body. When somebody has lymphoma, lymphocytes change and grow out of control. There are two main types of lymphoma:1.Non-Hodgkin: Most people with lymphoma have this type.2.Hodgkin. Non-Hodgkin and Hodgkin lymphoma involve different types of lymphocyte cells. Every type of lymphoma grows at a different rate and responds differently to treatment.

Cerebral Small Vessel Disease

  • Contains:  9 items
Cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD) is composed of several diseases affecting the small arteries, arterioles, venules, and capillaries of the brain, and refers to several pathological processes and etiologies. Increasing small vessel disease burden is associated with risk of incident stroke and dementia, as well as other neuropsychiatric symptoms. Cerebral small vessel disease is common in aging adults and represents a major risk factor for multiple acute and chronic neurologic diseases. Increased awareness of cerebral small vessel disease as a modifiable risk factor holds potential for reducing neurologic disease morbidity and mortality across diverse populations worldwide.

Lung Cancer

  • Creator:   Chinese Medical Journal
  • Updated:   4/25/2021
  • Contains:  8 items
Lung cancer is among the most common malignant tumors that cause serious harm to humans. Despite the successes of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and targeted therapy, the prognosis of lung cancer remains unsatisfactory. Fortunately, patients with lung cancer have found hope in immunotherapy, particularly, in immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs). ICIs in immunotherapy for lung cancer have shifted from back-line treatment to first-line treatment, from palliative treatment to consolidation treatment, from advanced lung cancer therapy to early neoadjuvant therapy, and towards precise individualized treatment. However, immunotherapy involves many problems that should be considered and resolved. This collection focuses on the recent advancements and challenges of ICIs in patients with lung cancer.

  • Updated:   4/25/2021
  • Contains:  8 items
This collection is dominated by a range of epidemiological studies, including oncology epidemiology, chronic non-communicable disease epidemiology and infectious disease epidemiology, covering a range of important public health issues. We particularly recommend the first paper, which provides a detailed interpretation of changes in the global and Chinese cancer spectrum based on Globocan 2020 data, and provides a basis for the development of cancer prevention strategies in China.

Gastric cancer

  • Creator:   Chinese Medical Journal
  • Updated:   6/18/2021
  • Contains:  9 items
Gastric cancer (GC) is a common malignancy and is the third leading cause of cancer-related death. At present, there is no simple and effective screening method for early-stage GC, and the treatment results and prognosis are poor.

HIV-AIDS

  • Creator:   Chinese Medical Journal
  • Updated:   6/22/2021
  • Contains:  8 items
Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a chronic, potentially life-threatening condition caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). By damaging your immune system, HIV interferes with your body's ability to fight infection and disease. HIV is a sexually transmitted infection (STI). It can also be spread by contact with infected blood or from mother to child during pregnancy, childbirth or breast-feeding. Without medication, it may take years before HIV weakens your immune system to the point that you have AIDS. There's no cure for HIV/AIDS, but medications can dramatically slow the progression of the disease.
