Oncotarget is an international multidisciplinary journal focusing on potential targets for therapy and the treatment of all cancers. It is a traditional, free-access journal under the leadership of prominent research scientists. The mission of Oncotarget is to link scientific specialties and allow exceptional discoveries to be made widely available as quickly as possible.To maximize the impact of the latest scientific research, Oncotarget publishes papers online every week. These reviews explore new and existing therapies to help advance treatment outcomes and improve the quality of life for patients. To this end, a study by the University of Rochester Medical Center suggests that e-cigarettes cause damage to gum tissue and teeth.
Collaborating with other scientists, Infan Rahman, PhD, professor of Environmental Medicine at the UR School of Medicine and Dentistry published research in November 2016 in Oncotarget.A growing number of younger adults and former smokers favor electronic cigarettes because they are perceived as a healthy alternative to tobacco. However, most e-cigarettes contain a battery-powered device that heats liquid in a cartridge containing nicotine, flavorings and other chemicals that are inhaled by the user.Vapors released from the e-cigarettes could lead to various oral diseases, damage lung cells and cause adverse pollution effects.
Additional studies on cancer research have been published in Research Gate including a September 2016 article focusing on cervical cancer and proteins that may be used as potential markers for diagnosis and treatment. Cervical cancer is one of the most common malignant tumors in women. The structure of the cancer is intricate and has not been fully understood.A study was carried out to detect the difference in proteins between cervical cancer and non-cancer samples in order to find someunusual proteins that could serve as potential targets for research and possible future therapies.
