- ... The review discusses the effects of Epigallocatechin-3-gallate Gallate (EGCG) on glioma as a basis for future research on clinical application of EGCG. Epidemiological studies on the effects of green tea or EGCG on the risk of glioma is inconclusive due to the limited number of studies, the inclusion of all tea types in these studies, and the focus on caffeine rather than EGCG.

- ... The prognostic nutrition index (PNI), calculated based on serum albumin and lymphocyte counts, predicts the prognosis of several cancers, including operated esophageal cancers. In this study, we determined whether PNI could predict the occurrence of severe adverse events by chemotherapy and chemoradiotherapy, and overall survival in esophageal cancer. We collected data from 191 patients with esoph ...
