Impact of United States Preventive Services Task Force Recommendations on Utilization of Prostate-specific Antigen Screening in Medicare Beneficiaries.

Previous studies assessing the impact of United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendations on utilization of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening have not investigated longer-term impacts of 2008 recommendations nor have they investigated the impact of 2012 recommendations in the Medicare population. This study aimed to evaluate change in utilization of PSA screening, post-2008 and 2012 USPSTF recommendations, and assessed trends and determinants of receipt of PSA screening in the M...

Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor Nivolumab and Radiotherapy in Pretreated Lung Cancer Patients: Efficacy and Safety of Combination.

In the last decade, the discovery of immune checkpoint inhibitors such as the PD-1 inhibitor, nivolumab, has revolutionized the treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Concurrent radiotherapy (RT) is of particular interest in showing the potential role of the combination.

Patterns of Care and Outcomes of Hypofractionated Chemoradiation Versus Conventionally Fractionated Chemoradiation for Glioblastoma in the Elderly Population.

This study evaluated practice patterns, outcomes, and predictors of survival for elderly patients with glioblastoma (GBM) receiving definitive chemoradiotherapy (CRT) with either hypofractionated radiotherapy or conventionally fractionated radiotherapy.

Cardiopulmonary Aerobic Fitness Assessment During Maximal and Submaximal Exercise Testing in Pediatric Oncology Patients After Chemotherapy.

The cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) is a valuable tool to assess cardiopulmonary exercise capacity in pediatric oncology patients after chemotherapy. In addition, few studies on the utility of submaximal testing have been performed, which could be important as some patients are unable to complete a maximal effort test secondary to deconditioning by both disease and treatment.

Treatment Patterns Among Women Diagnosed With Stage I-III Triple-negative Breast Cancer.

To examine contemporary treatment patterns for women diagnosed with stage I-III triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) in the United States.

Induction Therapies Plus Surgery Versus Exclusive Radiochemotherapy in Stage IIIA/N2 Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC).

In spite of the growing body of data from prospective randomized clinical trials (PRCTs) and meta-analyses, the optimal treatment approach in patients with stage IIIA non-small cell lung cancer remains unknown. This review focuses on the available data directly confronting induction chemotherapy or induction radiochemotherapy (RT-CHT) when followed by surgery with exclusive RT-CHT. Seven PRCTs and 4 meta-analyses investigated this issue. In addition, numerous retrospective studies attempted to identify pote...

Diagnosis of Axillary Web Syndrome in Patients After Breast Cancer Surgery: Epidemiology, Risk Factors, and Clinical Aspects: A Prospective Study.

Axillary web syndrome (AWS) is a complication after breast cancer surgery associated with the axillary approach. We defined a diagnosis tool as well as evaluated cord frequency, characteristics, and risk factors.

Patterns of Failure in Patients With Adult Medulloblastoma Presenting Without Extraneural Metastasis.

The objective of this study is to evaluate long-term outcomes, specifically patterns of tumor recurrence, in patients with adult medulloblastoma treated with radiotherapy.

Dose Escalation Study of Concurrent Chemoradiotherapy With the Use of Involved-field Conformal Radiotherapy and Accelerated Hyperfractionation in Combination With Cisplatin and Vinorelbine Chemotherapy for Stage III Non-small Cell Lung Cancer: The Final Report.

A phase I study to determine a recommended dose of thoracic radiotherapy using accelerated hyperfractionation for unresectable non-small cell lung cancer was conducted.

Travel Distance as a Barrier to Receipt of Adjuvant Radiation Therapy After Radical Prostatectomy.

Following radical prostatectomy (RP), adjuvant radiation therapy (RT) decreases biochemical recurrence and potentially improves metastasis-free and overall survival for patients with high-risk pathologic features. Since adjuvant RT typically occurs daily over several weeks, the logistical challenges of extensive traveling may be a significant barrier to its use. We examined the association between distance to treatment facility and use of adjuvant RT.

"Lost to Follow-up" Among Adult Cancer Survivors.

Follow-up cancer care is important for patients who have received IV chemotherapy but some patients discontinue their care and are lost to follow-up (LFU) at the cancer center where they were treated. The purpose of this study was to determine what proportion of cancer survivors are LFU at 5 years after treatment, the timing of LFU, and the characteristics of those who do not continue survivorship care.

Clinical Characteristics of Patients Experiencing Pathologic Complete Response Following Neoadjuvant Therapy for Borderline Resectable/Locally Advanced Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma.

The purpose of this study is to describe clinical characteristics and outcomes of patients with borderline resectable pancreatic cancer (BRPC) or locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC) who achieved pathologic complete response (pCR) following neoadjuvant therapy.

Phase I/II Study of S-1 Plus Cisplatin Alternating With S-1 Plus Docetaxel in Patients With Advanced Gastric Cancer.

To investigate the usefulness of S-1 plus cisplatin alternating with S-1 plus docetaxel as first-line treatment in patients with advanced gastric cancer, we conducted a phase I/II study to determine the maximum tolerated dose and recommended dose, and evaluate efficacy and toxicity.

A Phase1b Dose Escalation Study of Recombinant Circularly Permuted TRAIL in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma.

Circularly permuted tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (CPT), or CPT, is a novel antitumor drug candidate. This phase 1b study evaluated the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), and efficacy of single-agent CPT in patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM), and aimed to identify the recommended dose for the phase 2 study.

Hypoalbuminemia is a Predictive Factor for Fistula Formation in Recurrent Cervical Cancer.

Antivascular endothelial growth factor monoclonal antibodies inhibit tumor angiogenesis, consequently impeding the recruitment of new vasculature to existing and new tumor lesions. We sought to evaluate toxicities in women with recurrent cervical cancer after receiving bevacizumab combination chemotherapy.

Six-Year Results From a Phase I/II Trial for Hypofractionated Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation Using a 2-Day Dose Schedule.

To report 6-year outcomes from a phase I/II trial using balloon-based brachytherapy to deliver APBI in 2 days.

Advanced Age is Not a Contraindication for Treatment With Curative Intent in Esophageal Cancer.

The objective of this study is to compare long-term outcomes between younger and older (70 y and above) esophageal cancer patients treated with curative intent.

Surgical Intervention in Gastric Carcinoid is Associated With Improved Survival in Local and Regional Disease.

Gastric carcinoid is a rare entity with complex management options. This study aims to determine if surgical intervention in patients with local, regional, and metastatic gastric carcinoid is associated with prolonged survival.

Efficacy of Modified Dose-dense Paclitaxel in Recurrent Cervical Cancer.

To examine survival outcomes of women with recurrent cervical cancer who received salvage chemotherapy with modified dose-dense paclitaxel (MDDP) monotherapy (paclitaxel 80 mg/m, administered on day 1, 8, and 15 without day 22).
