Efficacy of management strategies for aromatase inhibitor-induced arthralgia in breast cancer patients: a systematic review.

Efficacy of management strategies for aromatase inhibitor-induced arthralgia in breast cancer patients: a systematic review. Asia Pac J Clin Oncol. 2018 Jan 30;: Authors: Nahm N, Mee S, Marx G Abstract Aromatase inhibitors are the gold standard in the treatment of hormone receptor-positive breast cancer, but lead to an arthralgia syndrome which is implicated in 13-22% of noncompliance. This is the first systematic review of the efficacy of existing management strategies for this side effect. Eligible studies were retrieved from computer searches of Medline, Cochrane and Embase and the significant intervention groups were identified. The risk of bias of selected studies was evaluated and the relevant data items were extracted, summarized and analyzed. A total of 21 studies were discussed in this review representing 12 different interventions. While several trials had positive findings, the major methodological limitations of the studies meant that no definitive evidence could be found supporting any of the interventions. Future trials are needed which address the methodological problems identified in this review. Exercise holds promise for future research based on its proven benefit in breast cancer.

From time to time I have commented on the controversies over cancer screening. Most people assume that screening is an unqualified good, that early detection of cancer saves lives. Whenever some panel proposes recommending less screening, we hear screaming and yelling from advocates who claim they are trying to " ration " health care to save money at the expense of people's lives.In fact,as a bunch of Australians and a Minnesotan explain in BMJ, there are a few conditions called " cancer " that you are better off not treating, or perhaps treating very conservatively. These include what is called ductal ...

(Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard) A research team reports a new kind of genome analysis that could identify large fractions of the population who have a much higher risk of developing serious common diseases, including coronary artery disease, breast cancer, or type 2 diabetes. These tests, which use information from millions of places in the genome to ascertain risk for five diseases, can flag greater likelihood of developing the potentially fatal conditions well before any symptoms appear.
