CONCLUSION: Guideline adherence is suboptimal. Although survivor SCP possession is associated with better adherence, few survivors and PCPs have one. New strategies to improve adherence are needed. PMID: 32142393 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractThe involvement of the right ventricle (RV) in various cardiovascular pathologies is usually explored and demonstrated after thorough research of the left ventricle (LV). This is also true in cardio-oncology, where multimodality imaging with cardiac magnetic resonance and nuclear imaging is essential, but echocardiography plays pivotal role in everyday clinical practice. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy effect on RV has been studied mainly in breast cancer patients and survivors from childhood cancer. Right ventricular geometry and shape limit the ability of classical echocardiographic indices like RV ejection fractio...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: The aim was to understand the processes of therapeutic changes in Meaning-Centered Group Psychotherapy (MCGP) in a Portuguese sample. METHOD: Adult cancer patients with distress motivated to participate in MCGP were identified; descriptive and narrative analyses were performed on the session content. RESULTS: The sample had 24 participants (mean age: 63.43 years); the majority were females (75%), with a median academic degree (54%). Breast cancer was most frequent (67%) at the localized stage (71%). The narrative analysis defined seven categories according to the MCGP themes. In "...

Abstract Despite the enormous success of childhood prophylactic vaccination against diseases caused by pathogens, there is currently no similar preventive vaccine program against diseases confronted with age like breast cancer and ovarian cancer. With the exception of the annual influenza vaccine, current recommendations for adult vaccination are for either primary vaccines not received during childhood or for booster vaccinations to maintain the immunity against pathogens already induced during childhood. Here we describe a strategy to provide prophylactic pre-emptive immunity against the development of adult ons...

Conclusion.Early diagnosis strategies should address barriers during all three intervals contributing to late presentation in LMICs. Standardization in studying and reporting delay intervals in LMICs is needed to monitor progress and facilitate comparisons across settings.Implications for Practice.This review draws the attention of cancer implementation scientists globally. The findings highlight the significant delays that occur throughout the cancer care continuum in low‐ and middle‐income countries and describe common barriers that cause them. This review will help shape the global research agenda by proposing metri...

on LM Abstract Quantification of radiation dose to normal tissue during radiotherapy is critical for assessing risk for radiotherapy-related late effects, including subsequent neoplasms (SNs). Case-control studies of SNs typically reconstruct absorbed radiation dose to the specific SN location using individual treatment parameters. A simplified method estimates the maximum prescribed target dose to the body region in which the SN arises. We compared doses and risk estimates from these methods using data from case-control studies of subsequent brain tumors (64 cases, 244 controls) and breast cancer (94 cases, 358 c...
