Following the success of the first two years, which has resulted in 38 UAE Nationals having completed the course and begun work as EMTs with National Ambulance, a record 43 Emiratis were accepted as candidates and will now begin their studies at the University of Sharjah's College of Medicine before later undertaking practical experience under the National Ambulance Operations Team.
Because laparoscopic minimally invasive surgery cannot completely remove small, deep and atypical lesions in EMT patients, residual lesions can recur in a short period of time under hormone stimulation, seriously affecting clinical efficacy and treatment compliance.14 In recent years, the importance of drug-assisted treatment after laparoscopic surgery in EMT patients has been widely confirmed.

Carcinoma cells within primary tumors activate a previously latent cell-biological program termed the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), which enables them to acquire many of the attributes of the cells associated with high-grade malignancy, including motility, invasiveness, an ability to disseminate, and a heightened resistance to various forms of therapy.
