Borchers The PI3-kinase/AKT/mTOR pathway plays a central role in cancer signaling. While p110 α is the catalytic α-subunit of PI3-kinase and a major drug target, PTEN is the main negative regulator of... The content of this RSS Feed (c) The Royal Society of Chemistry
ConclusionsWe established the feasibility of initiating and managing patients in a monthly text-based symptom-monitoring program. The provision of smartphones and patient navigation were unique and vital components of this program.
ConclusionPatients recovering at home following major cancer surgery regarded electronic symptom-monitoring and feedback as acceptable and beneficial. Patients perceived that the system enhanced information provision and provided a direct link to their care team. Patients felt that the system provided reassurance at a time of uncertainty and isolation, enabling them to feel in control of their symptoms and recovery.
ConclusionElectronic patient-reported outcomes are perceived as valuable for variable reasons by Black and White cancer populations, with greater perceived value for communicating with clinicians reported among Blacks. To optimize equitable uptake of ePROs, oncology practices should offer several ePRO options (e.g., web-based, phone-based), as well as paper-based options, and consider the e-health literacy needs of patients during implementation.
I don’t do Twitter cause social media is cancer so I will post here instead: 1. Social justice - we need more diversity in the specialty and need to stop the white male micro aggressions and unconscious biases. 2. Burnout - this needs to improve. What better way to do this than academic expansion and consolidation? As we all know physicians in academic satellites are deliriously happy, content and have a major say in what their RN/MBA overlords wish to do. 3. Jobs - Potters tweeted... Read more
Suicide risk significantly elevated for survivors alive beyond the age of 28 years; risk was lower for women than men
PANCREATIC cancer develops when cancerous cells in the pancreas - an organ in the top part of your tummy - divide and multiply uncontrollably. One telltale sign of this process can surface immediately after having a poo.
Leah Wyrick believes bras should aid in post-operative recovery following breast cancer and cosmetic surgeries, rather than create complications, and she aims to achieve that goal with Three Strands Recovery Wear.
Long-term survivors of childhood cancer are at higher risk for suicide compared with the general public, though their risk for suicide remains low, a study published Monday by the journal Cancer found.
ConclusionsThis is the first report of non-invasive radioablation of the left atrium with demonstration of successful electrical isolation. Although STAR may be safe and effective in delivering ablative energy to the left atrium, further evaluation is warranted regarding effectiveness.
If the current trend continues, researchers say pancreatic cancer among women aged 15 to 34 could grow to 400% of that experienced by men of the same ages by 2040.
