Vitamin D and androgen receptor-targeted therapy successfully reduced growth and induced death of cancerous cells in a cell culture model of triple-negative breast cancer.
The 2016 consensus statement from the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) describes how to best manage EGFR-mutation-positive NSCLC.
The National Cancer Moonshot needs to target proteins that are driving cancer rather than focusing only on genomics, a new paper suggests.
Radiation therapy delivered to the critical vessels surrounding the prostate can result in erectile dysfunction and bladder and renal irritation. Vessel-sparing radiation and an improved understanding of the anatomy of the prostate can reduce these effects.
Training Patients With Breast Cancer to Achieve Prolonged Breath Holds Could Improve Targeted Radiotherapy
Patients with breast cancer can be trained to achieve a breath hold lasting more than 5 minutes, allowing for targeted administration of radiotherapy with a single dose per daily session that can minimize damage to surrounding tissues.
A new drug candidate reduced the growth of tumors in a mouse model of triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) by targeting the RNA, or expression, of a gene only expressed in the diseased cells.
To improve patient comfort during full-body skin cancer screenings, dermatologists should respect patients' preferences for the gender of the examining clinician and for how the genital area is examined.
Including Quality Measures In Treatment Regimens Increases Survival in Stage IIIA Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
When more quality measures are incorporated into patient care, survival rates for patients with stage IIIA non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) increase, but only 13% of eligible patients actually receive all 4 recommended quality measures.
New research results favor testing for prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels for detection of prostate cancer. PSA tests can reduce the number of fatal cases of prostate cancer by detecting disease early.
Genetic Biomarker Predictive of Peripheral Neuropathy in Patients Receiving Docetaxel for Prostate Cancer
Docetaxel-induced neuropathy may be predicted by single nucleotide polymorphisms in VAC14.
Patients with stage IIA testicular cancer gain a survival advantage from treatment with radiation therapy compared with chemotherapy.
Increased Risk of Noncancer Deaths Associated with Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy for Lung Cancer
High doses of SBRT, particularly to the left atrium of the heart and the superior vena cava, are associated with a small but increased risk of death from noncancer causes in patients with early stage NSCLC.
Adding an immune system-strengthening compound to radiation therapy can extend the immune response that the radiation therapy induces, so that both irradiated tumor sites and tumors outside the radiation field are affected.
The immunotherapy drug nivolumab conferred a survival benefit in patients with head and neck cancer over standard chemotherapy.
Combining trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1) and pertuzumab before surgery was more beneficial than the combination of paclitaxel plus trastuzumab for patients with HER2-positive invasive breast cancer.
