Abstract The idiopathic inflammatory myopathies, particularly dermatomyositis, are associated with an increased risk of cancer. Lung, ovarian, breast, colon, prostate, and cervical cancers, and hematologic malignancies, are among the most common associated cancers. Risk stratification for cancer in patients with myositis is based on clinical risk factors/red flags, myositis clinical subtypes, and myositis-specific autoantibodies. Clinical risk factors include older age at disease onset, male gender, dysphagia, acute onset/refractory myositis, cutaneous ulceration, necrosis/vasculitis, and elevated inflammatory mar...

Abstract Systemic lupus erythematosus is associated with a small overall increased cancer risk compared with the general population. This risk includes a 4-fold increased risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, but a decreased risk of other cancers (such as breast cancer). The pathophysiology underlying the increased risk of hematologic cancer is not fully understood, but many potential mechanisms have been proposed, including dysfunction of the tumor necrosis factor and other pathways. A decreased risk of breast, ovarian, and endometrial cancer might be driven by hormonal factors or lupus-related antibodies, but these link...

José Carlos Fernández-García The aim of this study was to determine whether a rowing training program leads to improvements in physical fitness and body composition in women who have survived breast cancer (53.70 ± 7.88 years). The participants (n = 30) completed a twelve-week training program consisting of three sessions per week, with each session lasting from sixty to ninety minutes. An anthropometric and general physical fitness assessment was performed before and after the program. The results showed statistically significant improvements in all the physical fitness tests performe...

This study was to assess these items by conducting an in-person survey in this understudied population. We conducted in-person surveys using a self-administered, structured questionnaire among young women in 2017. Survey questions were adapted from other validated surveys. This study had 677 participants in the final analyses. Data were collected in 2017 and analyzed in 2018 and 2019. Participants had little knowledge about genes or breast cancer risk, but most felt that genetic testing for cancer prevention is “a good idea” (87.0%), “a reassuring idea” (84.0%), and that “everyone should get t...

Purpose: In 2015 [1] and 2016 [2] audits were completed of Ysbyty Gwynedd ’s multidisciplinary team’s (MDT) use of radiological staging in newly diagnosed breast cancer and a local guideline was developed providing clarity to the MDT. Three years later and a re-audit was completed assessing adherence to the guideline.

Purpose: The 10-year mortality benefit of dose-dense over standard-schedule chemotherapy in early breast cancer was established in an EBCTCG meta-analysis published this year [1]. We sought to compare dose-intensity and toxicities in a real-world setting.
