CONCLUSION: Guideline adherence is suboptimal. Although survivor SCP possession is associated with better adherence, few survivors and PCPs have one. New strategies to improve adherence are needed. PMID: 32142393 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Imko-Walczuk B, Roskosz-Stożkowska M, Szymańska K, Kadylak D, Dębska-Ślizień A Abstract Skin cancer is the second most common complication of organ transplantation in children. The frequency of skin cancer incidence after organ transplantation is different in paediatric and adult populations. The post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease is the most common group of malignancies after organ transplantation in paediatric population. The majority of researchers who examined children with kidney, liver, heart or lungs grafts observed that the risk of skin cancer was three times higher than in the genera...

This study provides strong evidence that following a healthy lifestyle can substantially extend the years a person lives disease-free." Commentary on Recent Evidence for Cognitive Decline to Precede Amyloid Aggregation in Alzheimer's Disease I can't say that I think the data presented in the research noted here merits quite the degree of the attention that it has been given in the popular science press. It is interesting, but not compelling if its role...

AbstractPredispositional genetic testing of children for adult-onset health risks is typically only used when prevention and screening measures have utility during childhood. Little is known about how children and their parents may use predispositional risk information, including whether it changes their interactions around risk-reducing prevention and screening behaviors. The current study examined perspectives on family interactions around skin cancer prevention and control practices through 1  year after test reporting and counseling among children who received melanoma predispositional genetic testing and their pa...

ConclusionsPTC risk was elevated after a range of first primary adult cancers but was not clearly related to treatment. Although surveillance may contribute to elevated short-term risks of PTC, longer-term elevations in regional/distant PTC may be attributable to shared risk factors.

CONCLUSIONS: The incidence rates of several childhood cancer types steadily increased during 1983-2015. Although the reasons for these rises are largely unknown, our findings provide a foundation for health service planning for meeting the needs of children who will be diagnosed with cancer until 2035.

This study shows that CA are released from periventricular and subpial regions to the cerebrospinal fluid and are present in the cervical lymph nodes, into which cerebrospinal fluid drains through the meningeal lymphatic system. We also show that CA can be phagocytosed by macrophages. We conclude that CA can act as containers that remove waste products from the brain and may be involved in a mechanism that cleans the brain. Moreover, we postulate that CA may contribute in some autoimmune brain diseases, exporting brain substances that interact with the immune system, and hypothesize that CA may contain brain markers that m...

Abstract Melanoma develops as the result of complex interactions between sun exposure and genetic factors. Data on these interactions from prospective studies are scant however. We aimed to quantify the association between ambient and personal ultraviolet (UV) exposure and incident melanoma in a large population-based prospective study of men and women residing in a high ambient UV setting, and to examine potential gene-environment interactions. Among participants with genetic data (n=15,373), 420 (2.7%) developed cutaneous melanoma (173 invasive, 247 in situ) during a median follow-up time of 4.4 years. Country o...

ConclusionsThis is the first sun protection accreditation program developed for Spanish schools. Studies are needed to evaluate how this program is received and how it affects students’ sun protection behaviors.ResumenIntroducciónLa exposición solar en la infancia es el principal factor de riesgo para el desarrollo de cáncer de piel en la vida adulta. Las intervenciones basadas en programas y políticas de fotoprotección escolar han demostrado ser las estrategias más eficaces y coste-efectivas para la prevención del cáncer de piel.ObjetivosElaborar un modelo de c...

BOSTON (CBS) — Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, but a new study published in JAMA Dermatology finds melanoma rates are actually dropping, at least in young people. Melanoma is linked to exposing skin to ultraviolet light (UV), most notably through sunburns during childhood. Researchers looked at data from almost a million cases of invasive melanoma between 2006 and 2015, and found that while the rates ticked up in adults over 40, they dropped 23% among adolescents and adults under 30. They say this suggests that public health efforts to get people to use sun protection and avoid excessive UV exposure is working.
