G-CSF Prophylaxis May Modestly Reduce Neutropenia-related Hospitalization

G-CSF Prophylaxis May Modestly Reduce Neutropenia-related Hospitalization

Primary prophylaxis with G-CSF may modestly reduce neutropenia-related hospitalization in patients with breast cancer receiving docetaxel and cyclophosphamide or docetaxel, carboplatin, and trastuzumab.

Bioimpedence Spectroscopy Improves Early Detection of Breast Cancer-Related Lymphedema in At-Risk Patients

Bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS) effectively assesses for subclinical breast cancer-related lymphedema in patients at risk, and accurately assess patients for response to treatment.

Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy Use on the Rise in Ovarian Cancer Treatment

Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy Use on the Rise in Ovarian Cancer Treatment

NeoadjuvantcChemotherapy (NACT) use went up from 2003 to 2012; linked to shorter overall survival in stage IIIC but not stage IV disease.

Chemotherapy-Induced Dormancy Improves Immunotherapy for Breast Cancer

Chemotherapy-Induced Dormancy Improves Immunotherapy for Breast Cancer

Inducing quiescent dormancy with conventional chemotherapy makes cancer cells more susceptible to immunotherapy, thereby minimizing potential for tumor recurrence.

Artificial Intelligence Method Improves Mammography Readings

Artificial Intelligence Method Improves Mammography Readings

Natural language processing (NLP) software correlated key characteristics expressed verbally in mammography reports with pathologic findings, providing an accurate indication for biopsy referral.

Experimental Drug Improves Immunotherapy Activity in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

Experimental Drug Improves Immunotherapy Activity in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

An experimental drug, AMPI-109, shows promise as an immunotherapy that sensitizes triple-negative breast cancer cells, enhancing the effectiveness of the drug.
