PORTOS: a gene signature that predicts salvage radiation success

Salvage radiation is curative in roughly half of all cases. There are many factors that contribute to an unfavorable prognosis, including waiting too long, high PSA and rapid PSA doubling time, adverse post-surgery pathology (stage, Gleason score, positive margins), and high Decipher or CAPRA-S scores. 1,754 more words

Does adding an aspirin improve outcomes to treatment for localized prostate cancer?

The clinical research community in the UK (with access to relevant government funding) still appears to be able to do the types of trial of older drugs that would rarely if ever get done here in America today. 477 more words

[♠頭髮♠] 瘋狂試洗髮水系列 之 日本醫學抗敏品牌ADJUVANT「電」「糖」系列


「髮頭因為又電又染而變得毛燥…」- 看見這段立刻對Adjuvant這個品牌充滿期待!


頭髮經常以一個非常毛燥的狀態示人的我,基本上見到可以讓頭髮變得柔順的產品就會失控 – 超想試! 這次的Adjuvant據稱可以解決毛燥問題之外,還可以解決頭皮容易痕癢、有油膩感,頭皮屑及頭髮容易脫落的問題!

話說有時候頭髮不夠健康,除了是因為染燙得太頻密之外,還可能是因為洗髮護髮產品阻塞了頭皮上的毛孔,令頭髮不能健康生長!(尤其是含矽的頭髮產品傷害很大!)

想知自己的頭髮健康程度有幾高? Adjuvant有提供頭髮及頭皮測試,可以讓大家了解自己的頭皮和頭髮的現況。以下是很多人都有的頭皮問題,而有些是光看頭髮表面根本不能察覺的!(最後一張圖片好噁心啊~~~~)


那大家覺得不噁心的話那我來給大家看一下我當天到ADJUVANT做的頭皮測試圖片- 自問沒有上面的問題頭皮般觸目驚心!


給我做測試的staff都說我的頭皮還可以沒什麼大問題,YAY! (偷笑)


(圖1) 是頭頂位置。一般一個毛孔有2-3條頭髮為之健康,而頭髮油油的是好的,因為沒有油亮感的話就代表頭髮太乾了。

另外如果一直有用含矽洗髮水的話,(一定)會看見在頭髮根部積聚了超多「一餅餅」的膠質,而這些膠質是用水沖不走的!我一直強調要用無矽頭髮產品就是這個原因!沒有用無矽洗髮水的朋友們去做個頭皮測試吧,保證有驚喜!(是只有驚沒有喜才對 XP)


(圖2/3) 是髮枕位置。因為睡覺時會壓一整晚有些人會有頭皮輕微發炎的問題。如果有的話頭皮位置會有紅點。


(圖4) 是耳側位置。可以看到圖中右下角有微微的帶紅,是頭皮敏感或發炎的表現 (我是側睡者..)


大家想知道自己的頭皮到底健康不健康,可以到文末的link預約做這個頭皮測試啊。



再來就是髮絲本身的健康問題了。頭髮中的蛋白質到底充不充足,就是決定髮絲健康的元素!像下圖最頂頂的每一條頭髮都是中間都有綠色一整條的蛋白質線,表示蛋白質很充足,頭髮很健康!越往下的頭髮質素越差!



至於我的,算是一般吧,局部的頭髮會缺少了點蛋白質。(這就是毛燥的原因?!) 81 more words

Urinary and sexual healing improved by waiting to start salvage radiation
