1. Whilst the number of Covid-19 cases increases, fewer patients present with appendicitis to the emergency department, and those who do, present with more advanced disease. 2. These findings are consistent with the hypothesis of a pre-hospital selection, with high rates of successful resolution of uncomplicated appendicitis following patients self...

Cancer is first a localized tissue disorder, whose soluble and exosomal molecules and invasive cells induce a host response providing stromal components of the primary tumor microenvironment (TME). Once TME is developed, cancer-derived molecules and cells can more efficiently spread out and a whole-body response takes place, whose pathophysiologica...
