Research presented at SABCS 2017 demonstrated the effect of refining the linear predictor for determining which patients with breast cancer would potentially benefit from adjuvant chemotherapy.
An analysis of an intervention arm of the PLCO Cancer Screening Trial evaluated the risk of prostate cancer relative to dietary consumption of isoflavones, a dietary compound found in some plant foods.
Populating a microsimulation of model of HIV disease, researchers investigated the the likelihood of lung cancer-related morbidity and mortality among patients with HIV who smoke, based on smoking intensity.
Study presented at the AASLD The Liver Meeting 2017 demonstrated the effect of regular aspirin use on risk of hepatocellular carcinoma in patients with chronic HBV.
Results of a recent study found that the effectiveness of the 9-item Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS-D) in screening for major depressive disorder (MDD) in patients with cancer was limited compared to the standardized diagnostic interview.
Risk assessment study for carriers of the BRCA1/2 mutation identified the factors that influence their risk of developing breast cancer, ovarian cancer, or contralateral breast cancer.
Regular aspirin use is associated with a lower risk of breast cancer among women with diabetes, a recent study from Taiwan has shown.
Presence of JAK2 mutation and leukocytosis are strong predictors for thromboembolic events in patients with essential thrombocythemia (ET).
Predisposition genes for familial polycythemia vera were identified via exome sequencing in a Finnish family with 4 patients.
A review of the updated NCCN Guidelines is presented with a look at the newly published Guideline for Patients.
Limited use of genetic counselors and high rate of double mastectomy in women at average risk with early-stage breast cancer illustrate that understanding of genetic testing results is limited.
Study finds patients are not more likely to report dissatisfaction, seek a second opinion, or change doctors due to physician recommendations against CPM.
Genetic testing for BRCA gene mutation is increasingly undertaken by women unaffected by breast and/or ovarian cancers.
Hodgkin lymphoma survivors are at higher risk of second cancers, and that risk is even higher in those with a first-degree relative with cancer.
Predictive risk model shows that lifestyle choices have a greater influence on risk for colorectal cancer than does genetic factors.
Presence of 1 risk factor or 2 or more risk factors is associated with non-home discharge after hysterectomy for gynecologic malignancy.
Annual lung cancer screening of only high-risk smokers more cost-effective than current methods.
Discovered link between inflammation and overexpression of CCL2 hints at potential of anti-inflammatory medications as a breast cancer preventive in women with dense-tissue breasts.
The recurrence score assay stratifies early stage, estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer by recurrence risk. This study assessed how clinicians use the recurrence score to recommend adjuvant systemic therapy or patients' experiences with testing decision-making.
Risk of ovarian cancer is higher in African American women with lower socioeconomic status, the opposite of trends seen in breast cancer.
Prophylactic Gynecologic Resections Increase Risk for Aggressive Uterine Cancer in BRCA Gene Mutation CarriersJuly 19, 2016
Women who carry the BRCA1 mutation are at increased risk for serous/serous-like endometrial carcinoma after risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy. Yet uncertainty exists over the need to perform a full hysterectomy in these women.
Sleep patterns and habits should be a part of oncology nurses' routine patient assessment, as sleep disorders can be a significant challenge for cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy.
Screening PSA levels at midlife could identify men who are at greater risk of developing prostate cancer later in life and who should be monitored more closely.
Biochemical Marker Is a Better Predictor of Adverse Effects in Patients with Non-small Cell Lung CancerJune 13, 2016
Albumin concentration with an established cutoff point is proven a better predictor of both chemotherapy toxicity and survival in patients with advanced lung cancer.
Prognostic Index Will Improve Clinical Practice Management of Patients With CLL and in Clinical TrialsJune 10, 2016
An international consortium devised an international prognostic index for chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL-IPI) that combines genetic, biochemical, and clinical parameters into a prognostic model to enable more targeted management of patients with CLL.
Reasons for the continuing increase in cases of young-onset colorectal cancer, despite a decline in the overall rate of the disease in recent years, are unclear.
