Predictors of emotional distress a year or more after diagnosis of cancer: A systematic review of the literature
ConclusionsThis review supports current clinical guidance advising early assessment of distress as a marker of vulnerability to persistent problems. Additionally, neuroticism is also indicated as a useful marker of vulnerability. However, the review also highlights that more sophisticated research designs, capable of identifying the psychological processes that underlie the association between these marker variables and persistent distress, are needed before more effective early interventions can be developed.
One month after stepping down as head of research and development at Gilead Sciences, Norbert Bischofberger has taken the helm of a new cancer drug startup in Cambridge. Kronos Bio formally announced its launch on Wednesday. The company is operating out of LabCentral, and has collected $18 million in seed financing from various venture funds and individual investors.

You are probably familiar with the Mediterranean diet, which emphasizes fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains and olive oil. The diet has been associated with a lower incidence of cardiovascular disease, cancer and Type 2 diabetes, as well as a reduced risk of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. But there's another diet that has its roots overseas, and it appears to offer similar health benefits.

Authors: Kubo K, Kimura N, Mabe K, Nishimura Y, Kato M Abstract The endoscopic and pathological features of early gastric mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinoma (MANEC), as well as its carcinogenesis, remain largely unclear. Screening esophagogastroduodenoscopy was performed on an 80-year-old man, revealing 3 superficial elevated lesions. Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) was performed, and the patient was diagnosed with intramucosal gastric cancer comprising mixed adenocarcinoma and neuroendocrine tumor, well-differentiated adenocarcinoma and well-differentiated adenocarcinoma, with negative margins. To our know...
In this report, we present an atypical FMF case with E148Q/L110P mutations in MEFV. The patient experienced periodic episodes of systemic pain originating from prostate cancer bone metastases. The pain attacks were prevented by continuous prophylactic therapy with colchicine. In this case, the presence of atypical FMF may have modulated the clinical manifestations of cancer bone metastases. To our knowledge, this is the first report to demonstrate the potential modulatory effect of MEFV mutations on cancer manifestations. PMID: 29780113 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
