Authors: Alexander W Abstract We review key findings in the areas of prostate cancer, non-small-cell lung cancer, breast cancer, esophageal cancer, pancreatic cancer, leukemias, metastatic colon cancer, and one session on molecular profiling guidance of therapy. PMID: 30100691 [PubMed]
Authors: Froelich MF, Stintzing S, Kumbrink J, Grünewald TGP, Mansmann U, Heinemann V, Kirchner T, Jung A Abstract Skin toxicity (ST) is a frequent adverse effect (AE) in anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-targeted treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) resulting in decreased quality of life and problems in clinical management. We wanted to identify biomarkers predicting ST in this setting and focused on 70 DNA polymorphisms associated with acne, the (immunoglobulin fragment crystallizable region) Fcγ-receptor pathway, and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) applying next-generation-se...
The objective of this study was to validate the NCCN Distress Thermometer (DT), including the accompanying Problem List (PL), in a Swedish population of patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer (CRC). Methods: A total of 488 patients diagnosed with CRC completed the DT/PL and EORTC core quality-of-life questionnaire (QLQ-C30) before surgery. Construct validity of the PL was analyzed using a confirmatory factor analysis. Internal consistency reliability (ICR) was tested using Cronbach's alpha coefficient. Correlations between the reported PL areas and QLQ-C30 function scales were used to explore convergent validity. Discri...

The NCCN panel meets at least annually to review comments from revi...

Feeding mice a diet rich in a compound that results from the digestion of cabbage and other brassicas protected their gut from inflammation and cancer.
ConclusionsDVH parameters and post-radiotherapy HRQoL appear to be closely correlated, underscoring the importance of assessing DVH values prior to initiating EBRT to determine the risk of developing HRQoL related adverse effects. Advanced treatment modalities may be appropriate in high risk cases to minimize treatment-related toxicity and to improve treatment outcomes and HRQoL. Future studies are needed to better elucidate the association between pre-treatment DVH parameters in organs at risk and subsequent HRQoL.
