In this companion piece to our November column, we discuss the unique challenges to preserving the fertility of female patients with cancer and current options.
A phase 2, randomized study investigated the effectiveness of oral curcumin, a component of turmeric, in reducing radiation dermatitis severity in patients undergoing radiation therapy for breast cancer.
Biomarker analysis revealed markers for cardiotoxicity enabling early initiation of heart failure therapy in patients with breast cancer who were treated with chemotherapy.
Researchers injected Ewing sarcoma cells into mice to determine the effects of exercise on doxorubicin efficacy and treatment-related cardiotoxicity.
Researchers investigated the incidence of lymphedema on patients with breast cancer treated with TAC after axillary lymph node dissection (ALND), with or without radiotherapy, and its impact on quality of life for patients.
Increasing survival rates for AYA patients with cancer have heightened the importance of discussing fertility preservation options. In this column, we review the options for male patients and the significance of including a discussion of them as part of treatment planning.
Data on psychosocial and psychiatric variables of patients with HNC prior to treatment was analyzed to determine the extent of cognitive impairment and quality of life for patients with head and neck cancer, and its impact on patient outcomes.
Nurses' critical thinking perspective is key to recognizing and managing adverse effects in patients with lymphoma, and staying ahead of the curve in a rapidly changing clinical setting.
Investigators randomly assigned 100 adolescents and young adults with cancer ages 12 to 25 years old 1:1 to the PRISM intervention or to non-directive usual psychosocial care.
Investigators conducted a study involving more than 1000 patients with advanced cancer to assess the factors that contribute to prolonged hospital stays and increased risk for readmissions.

Results of the double-blinded and initial open-label phases of the ELECT Study demonstrate the effectiveness of lanreotide in controlling diarrhea and flushing in patients with NETs presenting with carcinoid syndrome.
Despite its high response rate, researchers are finding that patients with endothelial activation prior to lymphodepletion chemotherapy are at greater risk of neurologic adverse events after undergoing CAR T-cell therapy for relapsed/refractory B-ALL, CLL, or NHL.
A survey followed up with an assessment via validated tools determined that patients with prostate cancer who experienced regret after radical prostatectomy were more susceptible to depression-associated sleep disorders.

A cross-sectional survey revealed the impact of symptoms and economic burden on quality of life for survivors of gastrointestinal cancer.
Opioids are an effective option for managing cancer pain; however, opioid-induced constipation (OIC) detracts from their effectiveness. In this study, investigators sought to determine if naldemedine use improved OIC without reducing pain relief.
This case demonstrates that, although rare, spontaneous TLS can occur even in the absence of chemotherapy, and a high index of suspicion for the effect should be maintained when patients with malignancies demonstrate the classic symptom of laboratory abnormalities.
