The Idiots At the TSA in LAX
Did you hear the story about the woman who was basically groped and abused by the TSA at LAX? Sure it made a tiny story on CNN and now they just show the video with the title "Breast Cancer Patient Livid After TSA Screening' . Then I went and read the full story on thewoman's blog. The TSA has issued a small apology but apparently they don't get it. Even their supervisor in the video is pretty darn useless.Seriously Deborah, the woman in the video, told the TSA agents she had breast cancer and they still didn't get it. Really? She is undergoing cancer treatment and you treat her like a piece of crap.
ConclusionsIn summary, this study provides the first characterization of fusion genes in a cohort of TNBC and HGSOC patients. An improved mechanistic understanding of fusion genes will support the future identification of innovative therapeutic approaches for these challenging diseases.
ConclusionsAchieving pCR after neoadjuvant chemotherapy was associated with clinically meaningful improvements in survival parameters in a real-world setting. The cumulative data support pCR as a valid surrogate endpoint in both clinical trials and population-based settings.

ConclusionWe developed a 12-gene prognostic signature, providing novel insights into the identification of breast cancer with a high risk of death and assessment of the possibility of immunotherapy incorporation in personalized breast cancer management.
Clinicians should be prepared to discuss limited data for benefit of endocrine tx in ER - low positive cases
Conclusion: it was difficult to experience and accept changes in work activities. The support of family, friends and coworkers was paramount to cope with this process, which should also be taken into account by the health team, especially nursing.RESUMO Objetivo: compreender o significado das atividades de trabalho para mulheres jovens com c âncer de mama.

Undergoing earlier menopause is a sign of a greater burden of age-related damage and dysfunction, so it should not be surprising to see that this correlates with a greater incidence of chronic disease in the years thereafter. People with a greater burden of cell and tissue damage tend to exhibit all of the manifestations of aging earlier than their less damaged peers. These variations in damage burden and consequences from individual to individual are near all the results of lifestyle choices, particularly smoking, weight, and exercise, and environmental factors such as exposure to chronic viral infection. Genetics plays o...
