Authors: Musio F Abstract INTRODUCTION: Anemia has and will continue to be a central theme in medicine particularly as clinicians are treating a burgeoning population of complex multi-organ system processes. As a result of multiple randomized controlled trials (RCTs), meta-analyses, and societal recommendations overly restrictive paradigms and under-administration of erythropoiesis stimulating agents (ESAs) have likely been followed by clinicians among all specialties. AREAS COVERED: A review of anemia in the context of chronic kidney disease, hematologic malignancies and cancer is presented with focus on the e...

Authors: Matti B, Zargar-Shoshtari K Abstract Prostate cancer represents a significant health burden worldwide. The cancer incidence had substantially increased since the introduction of prostate specific antigen (PSA) in cancer screening. This had led to considerable debates among health professionals and epidemiologists, since PSA as a screening tool seemed to be far from perfect. In New Zealand, the controversy was quite prominent in the last three decades, with some advocating the benefits of screening, while others concerned regarding the risk of harms. With the absence of an organised screening programme and ...

CONCLUSION: This study found that childhood cancer survivors in New Zealand had a high prevalence of developmental dental abnormalities and it identified potential risk factors related to their cancer treatment. Inequitable access to oral rehabilitation for this patient group argues for a mechanism for consistent improved access to publicly funded dental care across district health boards in New Zealand.

Each year, more people are diagnosed with skin cancer than all other cancers combined [1]. Nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) is the most common. In 2012, the incidence in the United States was near 4.0 million, with 2.5million people treated [2]. Basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma comprised approximately 99% of these tumors, with the remaining 1% including a mix of Merkel cell carcinoma, Kaposi sarcoma, dermatofibrosarcoma, and others [3 –5]. Actinic keratoses are currently considered to be the most common keratinocyte-derived precancerous lesion in humans and the incidence of these lesions is rising in th...

ConclusionsA comprehensive overview of NMSC survival in Germany is provided. The differences between the NMSC subtypes require a more differentiated consideration of patient survival. The survival advantage of patients with BCC may be related to health‐promoting factors related to the BCC diagnosis, such as changes to a healthier lifestyle.
