ConclusionsAlthough total nonvertebral fracture risk was higher among AI users, differences in hip fractures were not significant in a large population-based cohort of older women.Implications for Cancer SurvivorsUse of aromatase inhibitors by older women is associated with high risk for nonvertebral fracture that is increased compared with use of tamoxifen. Fracture risk should be assessed among patients taking these medications.

Publication date: Available online 14 December 2017 Source:The Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Author(s): René Maltais, Alexandre Trottier, Jenny Roy, Diana Ayan, Nicolas Bertrand, Donald Poirier The development of a covalent inhibitor of 17β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (17β-HSD1) is a promising approach for the treatment of hormone-dependent breast cancer and endometriosis. After reporting the steroid derivative PBRM as a first potent covalent inhibitor of 17β-HSD1 without estrogenic activity, we are now interested in studying its pharmaceutical behavior. The metabolism...

AbstractThe identification of patients at risk for breast cancer by genetic testing has proven to reduce breast cancer mortality. In 2010, due to a lack of systematization in hereditary cancer assistance in our center, we implemented a multidisciplinary Heredofamilial Cancer Unit (HFCU). We analyze if the HFCU improved the rates of referrals and preventive management of breast cancer patients with genetic risk. We retrospectively compared family history records, referrals of high-risk patients to genetic counseling, and detection and management of patients with BRCA1/2 mutations in two cohorts of breast cancer patients dia...

BOSTON (CBS) – More than 40% of women in the United States have dense breasts which can make it hard to find small cancers on a mammogram, but researchers are testing a new technology that could help. It is a 3-dimensional ultrasound called SoftVue. During the exam, the patient lies on her stomach, and her breast is placed into a warm water bath. In two to four minutes, the machine creates a 3D image using sound waves. SoftVue exam (WBZ-TV) There is no radiation and no compression of the breast. While SoftVue probably would not replace a woman’s annual mammogram, it might be used in conjunction with mammography...

Smith &Nephew has begun selling a handheld imaging device that can detect bacteria in hard-to-heal wounds and instantly measure wound surface area. MolecuLight i:X is already available in Canada, where its inventor stumbled across the idea for the device. Ralph DaCosta, MD, now a principal investigator at Princess Margaret Cancer Center in Toronto, was a PhD student researching fluorescent imaging of gastrointestinal cancer in 2007. The big, expensive device he was using didn’t produce any green images, which would have indicated cancer, but a red image that he couldn’t identify. DaCosta took a photo of th...
