Researchers Open Phase I Clinical Trial of Cryoablation with Keytruda
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City has opened a novel clinical trial that combines the immunotherapy drug Keytruda with cryoablation for patients with unresectable malignant mesothelioma. The phase I trial opened in September and will be available at seven Memorial Sloan Kettering locations in the New York City/New Jersey area. Cryoablation, which is also known as cryotherapy or cryosurgery, is a treatment that freezes localized tumors with argon gas or liquid nitrogen. It has been used effectively with liver, kidney and prostate cancers, but its use with mesothelioma has been limited because of ...

MRI frequently underestimates tumor size in prostate cancer
FINDINGSA study led by researchers at theUCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center has found that magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, frequently underestimates the size of prostate tumors, potentially leading to undertreatment.The study authors found that such underestimation occurs most often when the MRI-measured tumor size is small and the PI-RADS score, which is used to classify lesions in prostate MRI analysis, is low.For prostate tumor treatments to be successful, both the MRI size measurement and PI-RADS score must be accurate because they allow physicians to determine precisely where tumors end and where the normal,...

Proposed Legislation Targets a Critical Regulatory-Reimbursement Gap for Medical Devices

He regularly does high-intensity worksouts, enjoys hiking, golf, and can't remember the last time he even had a cold. But a preventative health evaluation incentive program his company offered in 2016 taught him that even the healthiest individuals are not immune to prostate cancer. After twoÂ prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening tests, followed by additional testing, Dye was diagnosed with localized prostate cancer. At first, heÂ was given the choice of active surveillance, als...
