Solid cancer development in solid organ transplant recipients within the Swiss Transplant Cohort Study. Swiss Med Wkly. 2019 May 06;149:w20078 Authors: Lengwiler E, Stampf S, Zippelius A, Salati E, Zaman K, Schäfer N, Schardt J, Siano M, Hofbauer G, The Swiss Transplant Cohort Study Abstract In solid organ transplant recipients (sOTRs), 5 years after transplantation cancer is a relevant cause of death. We aimed to report cancer incidence in the Swiss Transplant Cohort Study (STCS) between 2008 and 2014 and conducted a prospective cohort study of kidney, heart, lung, pancreas and liver transplant recipients enrolled into the STCS by retrospective analysis of collected data. The STCS provided data on 2758 solid organ transplants. In total, 134 cases of cancer were observed (30 liver, 21 prostate, 18 lung, 13 kidney, 52 other cancers). Standardised incidence ratios (SIRs) were highest for liver cancer, kidney cancer, thyroid cancer, gastric cancer, bladder cancer, cancer of the oral cavity and the pharynx and for lung cancer. Cancer occurrence differed according to the transplanted organ. Cancers were mainly diagnosed at World Health Organisation (WHO) stages I and IV. Treatment received was mainly surgery and, in some cases, included also radiation and/or chemotherapy. Bladder, kidney, liver, lung and prostate cancer were detected at a younger age compared with the general population. Cumulative hazards for death were increased for transplant recipien...

ABSTRACT Objective To assess the outcome of an educational nutritional intervention in the quality of diet of women with breast cancer in adjuvant treatment. Methods Women with breast cancer and admitted for surgical treatment were divided in an intervention group (n=18) and a comparison group (n=78), and participated in a nonrandomized clinical trial. Participants were assessed before and after the treatment and/or intervention. A food frequency questionnaire was applied and the quality of diet was calculated using the Brazilian Healthy Eating Index Revised. The educational nutritional intervention lasted 12 months and wa...

This study aimed to analyze clinical and laboratory parameters and their association with long-term outcomes in patients who underwent liver transplantation for hepatocellular carcinoma treatment, according to the etiology of the underlying chronic liver disease, in order to identify predictors of response to this therapeutic modality. METHODS: Demographic, clinical, and laboratory data from a cohort of 134 patients who underwent orthotopic liver transplantation for hepatocellular carcinoma treatment at a referral center in Brazil were retrospectively selected and compared according to the etiologic group of the underlying...

Despite the advances in the treatment and management, esophageal cancers continue to carry a dismal prognosis with an overall 5-year survival rate ranging from 15 to 25%. Delayed onset of symptoms and lack of effective screening methods and guidelines for diagnosis of the early disease contribute to the high mortality rate of esophageal cancers. Detection of esophageal cancer at their early stage is really a challenge for physicians including primary care physicians, gastroenterologists and oncologists. Although imaging, endoscopy and biopsy have been proved to be useful diagnostic tools for esophageal cancers, their diagn...
