CONCLUSIONS: HL- and HPV-related neoplasms are the commonest NADC in a cancer referral hospital from a middle-income country with universal access to cART since year 2005. Screening for early anogenital lesions should be emphasized in patients with HIV. It is essential to establish multidisciplinary groups involving Hemato-oncologists, Oncologists, Gynecologists, and HIV Specialists in the treatment of these patients.

With Monday marking the beginning of October’s annual Breast Cancer Awareness Month observance, supporters will be donning their pink ribbons as a show of support for ongoing research for a cure. It’s a ritual that repeats itself for any number of causes, such as teal ribbons for ovarian cancer to red ribbons for AIDS awareness. But when did ribbons begin to be used as symbols for various causes? The Library of Congress’s Folklife Center has studied the history of such awareness ribbons in American culture, and found that many citizens assume that the tradition is older than it is. Among the most frequen...

This article reports on patient feedback of a newly developed breast cancer patient education program, which integrates the VERT system as the focal education tool. The education program content included RT immobilisation, simulation, planning and treatment components, along with an introduction to the VERT system. Nineteen breast cancer patients (n = 19) completed an evaluation questionnaire at the completion of their VERT education program. Open-ended questions were used to detect the least and most useful aspects of the education session. Patient feedback indicated a high regard for the comprehensiveness of th...

AbstractVenous thromboembolism (VTE) is a major public health issue; deep vein thrombosis (DVT) affects about 1/1000 patients. Each year, VTE kills more patients in Western Europe than breast cancer, prostate cancer, acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) and road traffic accidents combined and is responsible for the deaths of approximately 370,000 European citizens (Cohen et al. in Thromb Haemost 98:756 –764,2007; B ĕlohlávek et al. in Exp Clin Cardiol 18(2):129–138,2013). The recently published ATTRACT trial (Acute Venous Thrombosis Thrombus Removal with Adjunctive Catheter-directed Thrombolysis) ...
