CANCER patients could be boosted in their fight against the condition by cutting back on sugary foods, scientists have revealed.
Daisy O'Leary Pye, 12, from Lee, south-east London, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma, a type of cancer that develops in the lymphatic system, after shooting billboard and television ads.
Authors: Johnson DR, Omuro AMP, Ravelo A, Sommer N, Guerin A, Ionescu-Ittu R, Shi S, Macalalad A, Uhm JH Abstract OBJECTIVE: Glioblastoma (GBM) is an aggressive disease with limited therapeutic options. While bevacizumab was approved in 2009 for the treatment of patients with progressive GBM, its impact on overall survival (OS) remains unclear. Using US population-based cancer registry data (SEER), this study compared OS of patients diagnosed with GBM before and after bevacizumab approval. METHODS: Adult patients from SEER with a GBM diagnosis were divided into two cohorts: patients diagnosed in 2006-2008 (Pre-...

Professor Kefah Mokbel, of the Princess Grace Hospital in central London, found that women who colour their hair are 14 per cent more likely to suffer breast cancer.
[New Times] Haston Charlotte talks with a calm and confident endearing voice, sharing her story of how she survived one of the deadliest diseases, cancer. The 50-year old mother of one from Kagugu in Gasabo District was able to beat breast cancer, thanks to early diagnosis and treatment which was administered when the disease was still in its first stage. "I was lucky to get early diagnosis and treatment before the disease had spread and in its first stage, before the worst could happen," she says.

CONCLUSION: Performance rates of DRE and PSA testing by doctors who are not urologists are very low, which may have significant clinical implications. It is recommended that SA prostate cancer screening guidelines are necessary to change practice with regard to this condition. PMID: 29025456 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: HIV-infected patients were younger than those who were not infected, and presented at a more locally advanced stage of disease. HIV infection was an independent predictor for CIN. HIV-infected patients had an almost two-fold increased risk of developing CIN and developed neutropenia at a much faster rate. A high baseline white cell count and ANC were protective against CIN.

CONCLUSION: The study demonstrated a marked inconsistency between recall and recognition of signs of childhood cancer, with signs of CNS malignancies being least recognised. However, the majority of students could recognise enough early warning signs to meet the university pass standard. Although this study demonstrated acceptable recognition of early warning signs of childhood cancer at one university, we suggest that long-term recall in medical practitioners is poor, as reflected in the low age-standardised ratios of childhood cancer in SA. We recommend increased ongoing exposure to paediatric oncology in medical school ...
