First, thank you so much for the article "Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor (MPNST)- An overview with emphasis on pathology, imaging and management strategies", it already turned to be very helpful in treatment and examination approach choosing for a 13-year patient with MPNST (proved by biopsy) and NF1.
I'm working as an oncologist in Moscow pediatric clinic (Russia - actually I haven't found my country in country-choosing list :), and this is one of my patients, the tumor is unresectable (involving near half of his neck with CA and VUI inside), so now we are trying to find out optimal non-surgical treatment tactics, but the information is rather poor and not really promising.
So actually I'm looking for an experience share, as the tumor is rather rare and the methods of treatment are still not very effective.

Comments: I have a website of my historic hometown, Yorkship Village (Fairview), Camden, NJ (www.yorkshipvillage.com
I am inspired by Jefferson's commitment to history by making yearbooks available online in digital form. Jefferon's fine website encourages me to continue with my own website on the history of Yorkship Village, Camden, NJ and the associated Shipyard for which the town was built c. 1918.
On a personal note, Dr. Kaigh (also M.S. in Math from Temple before going to med school) taught me tensor analysis c. 1970. I would like to honor my former teachers such as Dr. Kaigh in my teaching both in class at my university and through making theoretical physics material available online in the spirit of educational and non-commercial "Creative Commons" dissemination of knowledge.

Comments: Wow! Crazy to think that they could regulate bed tanning in the United States when only a few years ago it was one of the most promoted ways to tone your skin. Looking at our history of regulations with the induction of smoking, tanning almost doesn't make sense. It doesn't affect other people besides yourself which makes this a really controversial topic. Smoking can affect those around you which makes sense why they had to regulate it. I know that spray tanning is a great alternative which is why I started my own company. Even then, it will be curious to see how the health problems with that stack up as DHA is a prevalent additive that isn't good to ingest. Good article and thank you for posting!

Comments: Thank you for the alumni listing which enabled me to learn that my great grand uncle James R. Pepper (1831-1860)graduated in 1857 from Jefferson Medical College. He practiced for only about three years when, at the age of 28, he passed away from either typhoid or yellow fever. Without this website I doubt if I could have ever discovered which medical school he was graduated from. Referring Page: listing of alumni 1857

Role: Military Surgeon in War
Comments: Thank you for making this manual available by open access. The responsibilities and attributes of a military surgeon that Dr. Gross "hastily" characterized in this manual are as relevant and poignant today as they were in the opening days of the American Civil War. These words have inspired a new generation of military surgeons and resolve us to our purpose, service, and calling.

Comments: We would like to thank Jefferson Digital Commons for making articles accessible to Local Public Health Agencies. As you may know, not being affiliated with an academic institution 8 results in lack of access to free peer reviewed journal articles that are essential to our work. Having free access is important since Local Public Health Agencies do not have funding to pay for articles, in addition, access to the latest literature provides opportunities to learn new ways of improving our work. We commend you for providing this incredible resource. Thank you.

There are not many free to read and download articles in the internet and buying my access to all the articles I need to read is too expensive. It is very helpful that you do not do that and so now I have found a very useful article.
