This study aims to investigate the long-term risk of a SPM attributable to the radiation therapy in patients with the initial lung cancer.METHODS: Patients initially diagnosed with lung cancer between January 1975 and November 2011 were identified from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database. SPM was defined as the occurrence of a second cancer at least five years after the diagnosis of the initial lung cancer. Age- and propensity score matching (PSM)-adjusted competing risk analyses were performed to compare the risk of SPM.RESULTS: Of 47,911 patients, 9,162 (19.1%) underwent radiotherapy for the i...

September 11, 2021 (RARITAN, N.J.) – The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson &Johnson today announced new data demonstrating robust prostate-specific antigen (PSA) response and strong adherence rates in patients with non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (nmCRPC) treated with ERLEADA® (apalutamide) in the real-world clinical setting. The strong PSA response was also seen in a separate post-hoc analysis that showed a correlation between rapid and deep PSA response and prolonged survival in both metastatic castration-sensitive prostate cancer (mCSPC) and nmCRPC. The post-hoc analysis also ...
