ConclusionsIn patients with RA, the relative increase in etanercept-associated risk of experiencing congestive heart failure, serious infection, non-melanoma skin cancer, or interstitial lung disease was similar between elderly and non-elderly.

In the last two decades, the U.S. has seen a dramatic rise in the rates of both melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers, which are linked to ultraviolet radiation exposure.1 Non-melanoma skin cancer, which include basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, are the most common malignancies in the U.S.. Melanoma is the fifth most common cancer, and it has been projected that nearly 100,000 new cases of melanoma will be diagnosed in this country by the end of 2019.2

The current literature is limited with regards to trends for inpatient head and neck skin cancer reconstruction. Rather, studies have focused primarily on patients treated on an outpatient basis. To gain a better understanding of the effect that reconstructive correction of complex skin cancer defects has on the healthcare system, we examined the existing incidence and reconstructive trends of head and neck melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) in the inpatient setting.

ConclusionsThe use of NSAIDs might reduce the risk of SC, but many factors including study population, drug subtype, and disease subclass affect the significance of the association.Graphical abstract

Lung cancer is the most common cancer in Canada, excluding non-melanoma skin cancers, with an estimated 29,300 new cases in 2019 [1]. It is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality in Canada, accounting for approximately 26% of all cancer-related deaths [1]. Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the most common form, representing approximately 80-85% of all lung cancers [2]. Approximately 50% of NSCLC patients are diagnosed at an advanced stage [3]. The prognosis for patients with advanced NSCLC (aNSCLC) remains poor, with a 5-year survival rate ranging from 2-13% [4 –7].

AbstractThere is a pressing need for monitoring cancerous tissue response to laser therapy. In this work, we evaluate the viability of elastic scattering spectroscopy  (ESS) to monitor malignant transformations and effects of laser therapy of induced skin cancer in a hamster model. Skin tumors were induced in 35 mice, half of which were irradiated with 980 nm laser diode. Physiological and morphological transformations in the tumor were monitored over a period o f 36 weeks using elastic scattering spectroscopy, in the near infrared window. Analytical model for light scattering was used to derive scattering optical pro...

In this report, we analyzed gene expression profiles of paired specimens of keratinocyte carcinomas with their matched normal skin tissues as the control. Among several novel findings, we discovered a significant number of zinc finger encoding genes up-regulated in human BCC. In BCC, a novel link was found between hedgehog signaling, Wnt signaling, and the cilium. While the SCC cancer-stem-cell gene signature is shared between human and mouse SCCs, the hair follicle stem-cell signature of mice was not highly represented in human SCC. Differential gene expression (DEG) in human BCC shares gene signature with both bulge and ...

Authors: Philipp-Dormston WG, Battistella M, Boussemart L, Di Stefani A, Broganelli P, Thoms KM Abstract Introduction: Actinic keratosis (AK) is a chronic skin condition that can be a precursor to cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma. AK can recur and patients are likely to undergo multiple treatments. It is important that AK lesions are managed appropriately, and that patients are involved in treatment decisions. Materials and methods: The Supporting Professional Expertise in AK (SPEAK) program aims to facilitate this patient-centered care by identifying patient needs and aiding healthcare practitioners (HCPs) in sel...

Sven Schneider Indoor tanning is an important risk factor for the development of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer. With our nationally representative monitoring, we aimed at describing tanning bed use, user characteristics, reasons for use, and risk awareness over time. In the framework of the National Cancer Aid Monitoring (NCAM), we collected representative data on 12,000 individuals aged 14 to 45 years in annual waves of n = 3,000 participants in Germany between 2015 and 2018. We used descriptive statistics and chi²-tests to uncover group differences. To compare data from the different waves, we calcu...
