Could Switching to Interferon Avoid an Abnormal Ovarian Response in CML?

Among female patients with CML, fertility preservation with ovarian stimulation can be challenging if patients require continuation of TKIs until HSCT.

Pancreatitis and the Risk of Cancer

Some patients diagnosed with HP or AP have a significantly increased risk of developing pancreatic cancer.

Does Immune Checkpoint Inhibition Have A Dark Side?

Does Immune Checkpoint Inhibition Have A Dark Side?

Careful research is needed to ensure that immunotherapies activating T cells do not inadvertently fuel progression of T cell malignancies.

Locoregional Breast Cancer Recurrence: Advances Are Outpacing Strategies

Locoregional Breast Cancer Recurrence: Advances Are Outpacing Strategies

Treatment advances over recent years render much of the previously used evidence outdated.

Exercise May Improve Lymphoma-specific Survival

Exercise May Improve Lymphoma-specific Survival

Patients who indicated a decreased level of physical activity at 3 years after diagnosis had a worse overall and lymphoma-specific survival compared with those who did not report a change.

Colorectal Cancer Screening: Utility of Septin-9 Assays

Colorectal Cancer Screening: Utility of Septin-9 Assays

While colonoscopy is considered the gold standard screening method for CRC, it can be burdensome to patients; blood tests, while less burdensome, are not necessarily as sensitive.

Prostate Cancer and Radiation Colitis

Prostate Cancer and Radiation Colitis

Up to 20% of patients with prostate cancer treated with radiation therapy — external or internal via brachytherapy — will develop radiation colitis.

The Potential of Radium-223 in Modern Prostate Cancer Treatment

The Potential of Radium-223 in Modern Prostate Cancer Treatment

More evidence may be needed to understand the safety and efficacy of radium-223 in combination with abiraterone or enzalutamide.

Potentially Inappropriate Medications May Shorten Survival Among Elderly Patients With Lymphoma

Potentially Inappropriate Medications May Shorten Survival Among Elderly Patients With Lymphoma

PIMs may cause drug-drug interactions, which can lead to treatment-related toxicities and consequently affect outcomes.

Comprehensive Smoke-free Ordinances Reduce Risk of Lung Cancer

Comprehensive Smoke-free Ordinances Reduce Risk of Lung Cancer

People living in counties with strong smoke-free policies were 7.9% less likely to be diagnosed with lung cancer compared with those living in counties with no protection.

Metastatic Breast Cancer: What To Look For

Metastatic Breast Cancer: What To Look For

As breast cancer can be asymptomatic or have a series of different symptoms and physical exam findings, standard procedure is hard to define.

Monitoring for Post-organ Transplant Skin Cancer: Patients and Physicians Both Play A Vital Role

Monitoring for Post-organ Transplant Skin Cancer: Patients and Physicians Both Play A Vital Role

As post-transplant medications are used to reduce the body's immune reaction to a foreign organ, they may also reduce the body's ability to accurately survey for malignant cells.

Toward An Understanding of Molecular DLBCL Subtypes

Toward An Understanding of Molecular DLBCL Subtypes

Continued, deliberate exploration of the molecular pathways involved in different subsets of the disease is crucial to achieve clinical advances in the future.

Overexpression of CKAP4 Linked With Poor Prognosis in Renal Cell Carcinoma

Overexpression of CKAP4 Linked With Poor Prognosis in Renal Cell Carcinoma

Overexpressed CKAP4 was significantly associated with tumor, nodal, and metastasis stages, as well as Fuhrman grades.

Can Targeting Inflammatory Microenvironments Improve Cancer Therapy Effectiveness?

Can Targeting Inflammatory Microenvironments Improve Cancer Therapy Effectiveness?

Targeting tumor and extracellular LPA could help deny tumors their inflammatory habitat and improve the efficacy of radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and possibly immunotherapies.
