Survival With Second Cancer After Stem Cell Transplant Tied to Cancer Type Survival With Second Cancer After Stem Cell Transplant Tied to Cancer Type

The outcome of second solid cancers following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is strongly related to cancer type, with pancreatic and lung cancer being among those with the poorest outcome, according to European researchers.Reuters Health Information

AbstractTyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) that target epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) have dramatically improved progression-free survival in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients who carry sensitizing EGFR-activating mutations and in patients with breast and pancreatic cancers. However, EGFR-TKIs are associated with significant and disabling undesirable effects that adversely impact on quality of life and compliance. These effects include dermatological reactions, diarrhoea, hepatotoxicity, stomatitis, interstitial lung disease and ocular toxicity. Each individual EGFR-TKI is also associated with additional ...

(CBS Local) — The nation’s cancer death rate dropped a whopping 27 percent during the last quarter century, according to a new report by the American Cancer Society. That translates to about 2.6 million fewer cancer deaths than would have been expected if rates stayed at their peak, which was seen in 1991. “The decline in deaths is largely driven by reductions in smoking and improved treatment, as well as earlier detection for some cancers,” said lead researcher Rebecca Siegel, scientific director of surveillance research at the cancer society. The drop was driven by huge strides made in treating mo...

Patients with cancer are at an increased risk of suicide in the first year after diagnosis compared with the general population,according to areport in the journalCancer. The risk differs by type of cancer, with pancreatic and lung cancer having the highest risk.“After the diagnosis, it is important that health care providers be vigilant in screening for suicide and ensuring that patients have access to social and emotional support,” wrote Anas M. Saad, M.D., of Ain Shams University, Cairo, and colleagues.Using data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program, the researchers calculated ...

Cancer is the second-leading cause of death among Americans, behind only heart disease. But there’s good news: the cancer death rate has drastically declined over the past 25 years, according to a new report from the American Cancer Society (ACS). Overall, the cancer death rate dropped by 27% between 1991 and 2016, according to the report’s data, which came from the National Center for Health Statistics. Steadily declining cancer mortality rates saved about 2.6 million lives between 1991 and 2016. Significant reductions in lung cancer mortality explain a large part of the overall trend. Smoking rates have falle...

AbstractNeuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) most commonly arise in the gastroenteropancreatic system and lungs. The incidence of NEN is increasing globally, with improved diagnostic techniques identifying patients with early‐stage disease. The number of approved therapies for the treatment of advanced disease has grown substantially in the past decade. The treatment algorithm for advanced NEN is evolving from one that is directed by primary site–specific classification to one that is directed by biologic classification, as evidenced by overlapping systemic treatments across the primary tumor sites. Commonalities in biol...

Abstract Rapid advance in oncology leads to increasing survival of oncologic patients. More and more of them live long enough to reach either the natural age of menopause or, as a side effect of their oncotherapy, experience the cessation of gonadal function, leading to premature ovarian insufficiency, with disturbing vasomotor symtoms and long-term negative cardiovascular and skeletal effects. Thus, an ever increasing number of cancer survivors search endocrinologic help in the form of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). The misinterpretation of the WHI (Women's Health Initiative) Study has lead to an irrational f...

(CNN) — A breathalyzer designed to detect multiple cancers early is being tested in the UK. Several illnesses are known to create signature smells from the body, including typhoid fever reported to smell like baked bread and the aroma of acetone, said to be similar to rotten apples, on the breath of diabetics. Recent research has also shown that a person’s breath could also indicate the presence of cancer. To test this theory, Cancer Research UK have launched a two-year trial into a clinical device, called the Breath Biopsy, to find out if exhaled airborne molecules can be useful for cancer detection.
