Authors: Schuler PJ, von Witzleben A, Doescher J, Wollenberg B, Dietz A, Hoffmann TK Abstract In recent years, immunotherapy has been shown to be a promising approach for the treatment of various tumor entities. Due to further pharmacological developments and new studies, the checkpoint inhibitors have now arrived in the clinic. To date, patients with cancers in the head and neck region have benefited from these agents as part of a palliative therapy. Current clinical trials are testing other indications for the checkpoint inhibitors as monotherapy or in combination with other therapeutic approaches. The ...

ConclusionsA small subset of pulmonary adenocarcinomas shows immunoreactivity for ER clones 6F11 and 1D5 in FNA samples (18.2% and 9.1%, respectively). The absence of immunoreactivity for ER‐SP1 clone indicates higher specificity of this clone in non‐breast tissue. The differential diagnostic value of all ER clones in malignant PEs appears to be secure. Larger studies are necessary to validate this observation.

Last night ’s CNN duel between Senators Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz on the future of Obamacare was pretty illuminating for a recent arrival to the United States, with Senator Sanders’ playbook all-too-familiar to those of us from the UK.Sanders wants a single-payer socialized healthcare system in the United States, just as we have in Britain. Any objection to that is met with the claim that you are “leaving people to die.” The only alternatives on offer, you would think, are the U.S. system as it exists now, or the UK system. Sanders did not once acknowledge that the UK structure, which is free at t...

Chelsea German While a “cure for cancer,” is not yet in hand, it is probably not as far away as you think. As an article in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal shows, we are making tremendous strides in the fight against cancer. Let us take a moment to look at the data and rejoice in the many lives saved by medical innovation. We focus on gains made against the top four deadliest cancers: lung cancer, bowel cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancer. Consider how the lung cancer death rate per 100,000 men has decreased since the 1980s: While the decline is global, the greatest gains can be seen in weal...

Conclusion This opinion piece discusses the evidence related to whether exposure to electrical light night is a health risk. Much of the article considers various experimental studies where small numbers of participants were exposed to different light levels at night, as well as observational studies reportedly linking night-shift work with cancer, including breast and colon cancer. The researchers also identified some studies linking self-reported or measured light in the bedroom with depression and obesity. But this study has two prominent limitations. It does not appear to have been a systematic review. No methods are...

The NHS fails to inform patients that health screening often leads to unnecessary and risky treatmentsThere was some good news shortly before the Christmas break: the Parliamentary Science and Technology Committeeannounced an enquiry into health screening.The need for a review is pressing. Screening always sounds good – catch disease early, while it can still be treated – but the reality is more complex and screening has side effects. The problem is that doctors and researchers have known about these downsides of screening for decades, but the message hasn't got through to patients.Continue reading...
