Priorities on rare cancers’ policy in National Cancer Control Plans (NCCPs): a review conducted within the framework of EU-JARC Joint-Action

ConclusionsThe scarce presence of RCs in most of NCCPs may indicate low visibility and limited political understanding of their specificities. The critical issues emerging from the analysis are intended to improving the national policy frameworks addressing RC challenges and to place the NCCPs as strategic documents that must play a key role in this process.

Authors: Quaglino F, Manfrino L, Cestino L, Giusti M, Mazza E, Piovesan A, Palestini N, Lauro C, Castellano E Abstract Parathyroid carcinoma (PC) is a rare disease responsible for about 1% of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) cases. PC usually has an indolent course, tough to differentiate from the benign causes of PHPT, and the only certain diagnosis is histologic. The gold standard surgical treatment is the en bloc resection associated with the homolateral thyroid loboistmectomy. The aim of this study was to underline the main differences between PC and benign PHPT, along with gathering epidemiological knowledge...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewSinonasal squamous cell carcinoma (SNSCC) is a rare disease with considerable histologic diversity. Currently, there is a poor understanding of the etiology and pathogenesis of SNSCC. Here, we review recent literature to summarize what is known regarding (1) the etiology of SNSCC, (2) the role of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) in SNSCC, and (2) the molecular underpinnings of SNSCC.Recent Findings1. High risk HPV appears to play a role in the pathogenesis of a subset of SNSCCs. SNSCCs with high risk HPV have improved survival compared with those without HPV and occur in patients who are younger, simila...

Maurine Stuart credits the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for saving her family. In 2014, Stuart was diagnosed with HELLP syndrome, a rare disease that causes heart, liver and lymphatic problems. As a result, she was unable to continue working full time—which meant losing her employer-sponsored health insurance. But thankfully, she says, that same year, her home state of West Virginia opted in to the 2010 Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid-coverage expansion, and she qualified. Over the next few years, as bad news kept rolling in, ACA protections continued to keep Stuart’s family afloat. When Stuart was diagnosed ...
