A new analysis of FAB/LMB 96 looked into factors associated with shortened OS among children and adolescents with B-NHL.
Approval was granted for the treatment of patients with unresectable or metastatic BRAF V600E or V600K mutation-positive melanoma.
Study data indicate that checkpoint inhibitors combined with radiation could improve survival for patients with melanoma-related brain metastases.
Although involved-field radiotherapy (IFRT) has a high level of disease control in patients with follicular lymphoma, relapse frequently occurs; therefore, researchers sought to determine if adding chemotherapy would improve progression-free survival.
Greater reproducibility and higher concordance for melanoma staging observed with implementation of AJCC 8.
In this study, researchers investigated the effects of exercise on physical and psychological recovery after autoHSCT for multiple myeloma.
Researchers employed a literature search and in-person qualitative interviews to determine the key elements to successful NP-physician comanagement.
Although corticosteroids are frequently used to manage adverse effects (AEs), data on AEs related to these agents are lacking. Therefore, these researchers sought to determine if better reporting of corticosteroid-related AEs would be of benefit.
In a randomized study, researchers sought to determine the effect of IV injections of coix seed oil, a Chinese CAM, on pain and quality of life measures for patients with advanced cancer.
Researchers sought to determine if handgrip force could provide objective measures of CRF in patients with cancer.
The effectiveness of a novel intervention intended to reduce and/or prevent depression in patients with advanced cancer at the end of life was investigated in a randomized study with more than 300 patients.
Higher rate of recall, lower sensitivity, larger tumor diameter, and more lymph node-positive disease observed in women with dense breasts.
Using a comparator group, researchers sought to determine the impact of a diagnosis of solid tumor on outcomes among postsurgical ICU admissions in patients with cancer vs those without cancer.
Mindfulness-based interventions are proven effective in helping patients with cancer manage distress and other psychological symptoms. In this study, researchers sought to determine if Internet-based MBCT can be as effective as face-to-face interventions.
Post-traumatic stress symptoms are linked to a greater symptom burden in hospitalized cancer patients.
In this retrospective study, researchers sought to determine the effectiveness of fentanyl for dyspnea in dying patients with advanced cancer.
A retrospective study sought to evaluate outcomes for patients with CLL who were treated with FCR, a highly effective treatment, and initially had refractory disease, experienced relapse early, or were unable to complete therapy due to toxicity.
Researchers examine the possible impact that opioid products marketed by the pharmaceutical industry may have on clinician prescribing rates.
In a retrospective study, researchers used established tools to measure the nutritional status of patients with head and neck cancer before, immediately after, and at 2 follow-up points after radiotherapy.
Researchers report on a study to determine the relationship between BMI and risk for breast cancer among younger women, particularly those 18 to 24 years old.
Three-drug regimen twice a week achieved good response and long-term outcomes in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma; however, regimen has higher toxicity than once weekly dose.
In a poster presentation at the 23rd Congress of EHA, researchers described a study of the efficacy of romiplastim in achieving a platelet response in pediatric patients with immune thrombocytopenia.
