Sepsis is a healthcare condition with “incredible unmet need,” Ajay Shah, cofounder and CEO of Cytovale, tells MD+DI. “More people die from sepsis than from breast cancer, prostate cancer, and AIDS combined each year, and it costs more than $20 billion a year to treat sepsis in the United States.” Complicating matters is that sepsis “is challenging to diagnose early in the emergency department,” he added. Cytovale is hoping to tackle sepsis through early diagnosis. The company is developing a diagnostic test that cou...

AbstractBackgroundPredictive online calculators are used by clinicians as decision aids in early breast cancer (EBC). While use statistics for these calculators have not been published, as of 2017 NHS Predict was being accessed more than 20,000 times a month. These predictive tools have not had accuracy&benefit of use prospectively confirmed in EBC, yet use of calculators has been encouraged in EBC guidelines. It is important to understand the populations informing model development&validation, to understand how data bias may impact predictions in under-represented subpopulations. This work sought to elucidate the ...

CONCLUSIONS: Improvement of supportive care quality for women with breast cancer who are undergoing chemotherapy in Thai culture should include: 1) access to supportive care needs assessment, 2) proactive dissemination of necessary information for better management of their lives, 3) aids to daily living and psychosocial support, and 4) facilitation of easy access to welfare and finance help.

Daniella Kaligorsky, a student at the Technological University Dublin, won the 2019 Design Innovation in Plastics competition for her kit that shows how to conduct a selfexamination for breast cancer. A student at the Technological University Dublin has won the 2019 Design Innovation in Plastics (DIP) competition for CHEKKIT, a kit that shows how to conduct a self examination for breast cancer. Third-year student Daniella Kaligorsky developed the kit, which includes models that simulate the breast and the physical symptoms of breast cancer. It includes a brochure that explains what to do and how to recognize 12 possible sy...

Tremendous advances have been made in the treatment of many other subtypes of breast cancer, but treatment of triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) has remained challenging. However, recent developments suggest that we are on the brink of a new era in TNBC therapy that now brings the novel class of cancer immunotherapies to this population of patients. In this activity, based on a recent live satellite symposium held in Dallas, Texas during the 20th Annual Meeting of The American Society of Br...
