AbstractImmunotherapy is now widely established as a potent and effective treatment option across several types of cancer. However, there is increasing recognition that not all patients respond to immunotherapy, focusing attention on the immune contexture of the tumor microenvironment (TME), drivers of the immune response and mechanisms of tumor resistance to immunity. The development of novel immunotherapeutics and their use in combination with checkpoint inhibitors and other standard of care and novel treatment modalities is an area of particular attention across several tumor types, including melanoma, lung, ovarian, br...

Now Available at Dermatology Specialists of Mississippi in Biloxi Biloxi, MS – Dermatology Specialists of Mississippi is now offering Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT) as a treatment option for patients with non-melanoma skin cancer. This advanced technology is offered in less than 1% of dermatology clinics and has a 95%+ cure rate for non-melanoma skin cancer. There are four million new cases of basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma diagnosed in the United States each year... DermRads

Authors: Phan K, Oh LJ, Goyal S, Rutherford T, Yazdabadi A Abstract BACKGROUND: Basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) remain one of the most common non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSCs). Surgical options include primary excision with predetermined margins, frozen section controlled excision and Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS). There is no randomized study comparing recurrence rates between different surgical techniques for periocular BCCs. METHODS: A meta-analysis of proportions was conducted for recurrence rates. Meta- regression was used for subgroup analysis to compare results in those undergoing MMS versus FSE or paraff...

CONCLUSIONS: Although our meta-analysis showed statistically significant increased risks of either cancer incidence or mortality of certain cancers in association with firefighting, a number of important limitations of the underlying studies exist, which, precluded our ability to arrive at definitive conclusions regarding causation.

Conclusions: Buparlisib was well tolerated, however efficacy was limited despite selection of PI3K pathway aberrations. Future studies may provide insight into buparlisib efficacy by refining the molecular selection of different tumor types. PMID: 31741715 [PubMed]

This article is one of a series discussing cancer prevention and detection in primary care. Here we focus on the most common types of skin cancer: melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma. We describe the main risk factors and prevention advice. We summarise key guidance on the sy mptoms and signs of skin cancers and their management, including their initial assessment and referral. In addition, we review emerging technologies and diagnostic aids which may become available for use in primary care in the near future, to aid the triage of suspicious skin lesions.

This study does not provide evidence for an increased skin cancer risk in patients treated with NB-UVB phototherapy. However, we have detected the occurence of 10 cases of solar lentigines. Still, definitive prospective longitudinal studies with a greater number of patients and prolonged follow-up are required to specifically address skin cancer risk in relation to NB-UVB phototherapy.

Malignant mesothelioma has become the latest deadly cancer linked directly to the rescue, recovery and cleanup efforts following the 9/11 terrorist attack on New York City in 2001. The long-running threat has come to fruition. Eighteen years after Manhattan was engulfed in the asbestos-laced, toxic cloud of dust — caused primarily by the World Trade Center destruction — the first death from pleural mesothelioma attributed to 9/11 has been recorded. Nick Ursta, 52, from the southwestern part of Pennsylvania, died after a year-long battle with the rare cancer. Ursta, a construction worker and fireman by trade, w...
