Cancer is an ailment that always invokes feelings of fear and hopelessness in the minds of people. This needn’t be the case. Much of the tragedy due to cancer is because of late diagnosis making the cure impossible. The good news is that today we have ex...

TRIBUTE Dr.Mario Sideri 1953- 2014

It is with deep sadness that I write to inform of the death of Dr. Mario Sideri following a tragic motor vehicle accident in Italy in June 2014.

He was the past President of the International Society for the Study of Vulvar Disorders (ISSVD) and was recently nominated as President Elect of the International Federation for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (IFCPC). Dr. Mario Sideri had been Director of the Preventive Gynecology Unit in the Division of Gynecology of the European Institute of Oncology in Milan, since 2002.

Born in Milan in April 1953, he graduated from the University of Milan in 1978. A great gynecological oncologist, he worked extensively on vulvar diseases and HPV test for cervical cancer screening and triage.  He had a great interest in colposcopy, was a prominent member of the IFCPC Nomenclature Committee, and contributed significant changes to the IFCPC Colposcopic Classification.

He was gracious to accept our invitation to be a Course Director for the IFCPC approved  Workshop on Colposcopy organized by the Department of Gynecology of Mazumdar Shaw Cancer Center and Narayana Health Multispecialty Hospital, Bangalore in March 2011. His lectures on vulval intraepithelial disease and vulval cancer were stimulating and well received and highly appreciated by the audience. A true gentleman, he accepted our invitation without charging a penny, and traveled at his own expense. We were hoping to have him amongst us again for another academic event, but sadly, God took him under his shelter.

We, at the Mazumdar Shaw Cancer Center and Narayana Health Hospital in Bangalore, pray to God to rest his soul in peace and grant courage to his family members to bear this great loss.

Furthemore CT,NH and MSCC will work together to: 

1. significantly reduce the cost of the BMT 

2. do research in the field of BMT both for matched donor and haploidentical BMT 

A joint co-ordination committee,whose chairman is Dr. Devi Shetty (NH and MSCC Founder and Chairman),consisting of executive of both the institutions has been formed which will oversee the overall functioning of the BMT Unit.

Cure Thalassemia is a Social Business which provides affordable Bone Marrow Transplantation through the cross-subsidization model.

Smoking strongly associated with non-melanoma skin cancer in women

Women who have non-melanoma skin cancers are more likely to have smoked cigarettes as compared to women without skin cancer, a new study has claimed. 

Researchers investigated the relationship between cigarette sipants were recruited through Limoking and non-melanoma skin cancers, including basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinomas (SCC).
Smoking histories were assessed and compared between patients diagnosed with either BCC or SCC, or both, and a group of controls comprised of patients who were screened for skin cancers, but who were not diagnosed with and had no history of skin cancer. Read more…
