AbstractPurposesThe spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has affected socioeconomic and healthcare systems in many countries. Accordingly, many individuals may have canceled their annual health-check programs, including esophagogastroduodenoscopy, which would have resulted in lower numbers of newly diagnosed patients with gastric cancer in comparison to other times.MethodsQuestionnaires were distributed to 62 hospitals every week from May 2020 to August 2020 (total 744) through mailing lists of the Stomach Cancer Study Group of the Japan Clinical Oncology Group. The number of patients with gastric cancer and hospi...

ConclusionsHealthcare screening rates were reduced during the early part of the COVID-19 pandemic and did not fully recover to pre-pandemic rates by July 2020. Future research should aim to clarify the long-term impacts of delayed health screenings. New interventions should be considered for expanding remote preventative health services.

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTHealth care settings, including nuclear medicine (NM) departments promptly adjusted their standard operating procedures to cope with the unprecedented crisis caused by COVID-19 pandemic. Nuclear thyroidology has adopted changes, predicated on a careful risk-benefit analysis, in order to prevent a potential spread of the virus while being at the same time effective, safe and preserving their quality of essential services. Since most thyroid nodules are benign, and malignant neoplasms are characterized by an indolent natural ...

ConclusionOur findings indicated that ICI treatment should not be adjourned nor terminated during the current pandemic. Rather, COVID-19 vigilance should be increased in such patients. Further studies with larger cohorts and higher quality of evidence are required to substantiate our findings.Trial registration numberThis project has been prospectively registered at PROSPERO (registration ID: CRD42020202142) on 4 August 2020.

In this study, we collected 3,508 nasopharyngeal swab samples from 3,249 patients who visited the Yamanashi Central Hospital in Japan from March 1, 2020 to February 28, 2021. We performed multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using the FilmArray Respiratory Panel and singleplex quantitative reverse transcription PCR targeting SARS-CoV-2 to detect respiratory disease-associated pathogens. At least one pathogen was detected in 246 (7.0%) of the 3,508 samples. Eleven types of pathogens were detected in the samples collected from March-May 2020, during which non-pharmaceutical interventions were not well implemented. In co...

CONCLUSION: COVID-19 pandemic caused a decrease in the number of patients who applied to our clinic and increased patient-related delay time due to fear of transmission and lockdown. The rate of de novo stage IV breast cancer was also significantly increased.PMID:35059596 | PMC:PMC8734528 | DOI:10.4274/ejbh.galenos.2021.2021-11-5
