Review of Cisplatin and Oxaliplatin in Current Immunogenic and Monoclonal Antibodies Perspective
Platinum-based chemotherapy made a paradigm shift in the treatment of different cancers initially; however, the success of these agents may have reached the peak as researchers have tried different combination regimes in different trials without having major differences in the end results. New frontiers of research were opened up firstly with this discovery that conventional chemo-radiation therapy can induce immunological cell death by recruiting high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) protein which triggers the T cell immunity and secondly monoclonal antibodies agents which were regrettably not effective as “monotherapy”; however, the combination with conventional chemotherapy had demonstrated good results.

Relationship of Gender and Smoking History in the Development of Hypothyroidism From Exposure to External Beam Radiation for Head and Neck Cancers
Patients with head and neck cancers (HNCs) are often treated with external beam radiation therapy (XRT). Unfortunately this therapy is not without its unintended consequences. One of these side effects includes the development of radiation-induced hypothyroidism. Our study is designed to pay special attention to variables like gender and smoking history and analyze their relationship with the development of hypothyroidism. Full Text

Pulmonary Embolism as an Initial Presentation of Adrenocortical Carcinoma
Adrenocortical carcinomas (ACCs) are rare and often aggressive with more than 50% of the cases already in stage III-IV (ENSAT) at the time of diagnosis. Nearly 60% of ACCs present with hormone overproduction syndromes (Cushing’s syndrome and/or virilization), while the rest present with abdominal mass or incidental finding. Aggressive surgical resection is the mainstay of treatment usually followed by adjuvant mitotane monotherapy. For the advanced stage, adjuvant radiotherapy and combined chemotherapy with mitotane therapy can be added for survival benefit. Here, we would like to report a case of stage III high-grade ACC without syndromes of hormone overproduction, initially presented with pulmonary embolism. Full Text
