Promoting scientist-advocate collaborations in cancer research: why and how.

Advocates bring unique and important viewpoints to the cancer research process, ensuring that scientific and medical advances are patient-centered and relevant. In this article, we discuss the benefits of engaging advocates in cancer research and underscore ways in which both the scientific and patient communities can facilitate this mutually beneficial collaboration. We discuss how to establish and nurture successful scientist-advocate relationships throughout the research process. We review opportunities ...

A scoping review of trials of interventions led or delivered by cancer nurses.

Advances in research and technology coupled with an increased cancer incidence and prevalence have resulted in significant expansion of cancer nurse role, in order to meet the growing demands and expectations of people affected by cancer (PABC). Cancer nurses are also tasked with delivering an increasing number of complex interventions as a result of ongoing clinical trials in cancer research. However much of this innovation is undocumented, and we have little insight about the nature of novel interventions...

Integrating value of research into NCI Clinical Trials Cooperative Group research review and prioritization: A pilot study.

The Institute of Medicine has called for approaches to help maximize the return on investments (ROI) in cancer clinical trials. Value of Research (VOR) is a health economics technique that estimates ROI and can inform research prioritization. Our objective was to evaluate the impact of using VOR analyses on the clinical trial proposal review process within the SWOG cancer clinical trials consortium.

Strategies used and lessons learned by community assistants in organising regional forums for cancer education in Iowa, USA.

Cancer prevention efforts at the community level are essential in the fight against cancer. Understanding community dynamics provides insights into building meaningful relationships between researchers and community organizations. In this study, community assistants were hired to organize and host forums to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration, with the goal of strengthening and transforming relationships between a university academic health center and communities. A 19-item questionnaire was developed...

Chemotherapy induces breast cancer stemness in association with dysregulated monocytosis.

Preoperative or neoadjuvant therapy (NT) is increasingly used in patients with locally advanced or inflammatory breast cancer (BC) to allow optimal surgery and aim for pathological response. However, many BCs are resistant or relapse after treatment. Here, we investigated conjunctive chemotherapy-triggered events occurring systemically and locally, potentially promoting a cancer stem-like cell (CSC) phenotype and contributing to tumor relapse.

Comprehensive analysis of differentially expressed non-coding RNAs and mRNAs in gastric cancer cells under hypoxic conditions.

Hypoxia commonly occurs in solid cancers, especially in gastric cancer due to its rapid growth. The ability of gastric cancer cells to survive and progress under hypoxic conditions has been known for decades, but the mechanisms underlying this characteristic remain poorly understood. As cancer cells undergo changes in their genetic profile under certain conditions, we investigated the expression profile of non-coding RNAs (circRNAs, lncRNAs, and miRNAs) and mRNAs in gastric cancer MKN-28 cells under hypoxic...

What incentives increase data sharing in health and medical research? A systematic review.

The foundation of health and medical research is data. Data sharing facilitates the progress of research and strengthens science. Data sharing in research is widely discussed in the literature; however, there are seemingly no evidence-based incentives that promote data sharing.

Retractions in cancer research: a systematic survey.

The annual number of retracted publications in the scientific literature is rapidly increasing. The objective of this study was to determine the frequency and reason for retraction of cancer publications and to determine how journals in the cancer field handle retracted articles.

Cancer-free aging: insights from Spalax ehrenbergi superspecies.

Cancer and ageing can be regarded as two different manifestations of the same underlying process-accumulation of cellular damage-and therefore both are closely linked. Nowadays, the ageing of populations worldwide is leading to an unprecedented increase in cancer cases and fatalities, and therefore the understanding of links between cancer and ageing is more important than ever. Spalax is considered an excellent model for ageing and, additionally, for cancer research, due to not show clear age-related pheno...

New Foundation Revives Debate About Health Research Funded by Big Tobacco.

Non-participation in breast cancer screening among previous cancer patients.

Breast cancer can be detected at early stages through organised screening. This study explored reasons for non-participation in breast cancer screening among previous cancer patients, who have high risk of developing a new primary cancer.

Novel evaluation scale for QOL (QOL-ACD-BP) in preoperative chemotherapy for breast cancer.

Quality-of-life (QOL) has been reported to affect the prognosis of many types of cancer, and several studies used various QOL assessment tools to determine the relationship between QOL and cancer prognosis. In this study, QOL-Questionnaire for Cancer Patients Treated with Anti-Cancer Drugs-the Breast (QOL-ACD-B) was modified to be suitable for preoperative chemotherapy (POC) and was named the QOL-ACD-BP.

A comparison of metacognitive factors among patients with cancer and the control group.

Research examining the relationship between metacognitions and cancer has only recently begun to emerge. This study attempted to compare the metacognitions of the patients with and without cancer. The effects of stage of cancer, type of cancer, treatment modality (chemotherapy, radiotherapy, operation) on metacognitions were investigated. Patients with cancer were hypothesized to have higher levels of negative metacognitions.

The complex interplay between neutrophils and cancer.

Neutrophils are the most abundant type of white blood cell, and are an essential component of the innate immune system. They characteristically arrive rapidly at sites of infection and injury, and release a variety of cytokines and toxic molecules to eliminate pathogens and elicit an acute inflammatory response. Research into the function of neutrophils in cancer suggest they have divergent roles. Indeed, while most studies have found neutrophils to be associated with cancer progression, others have also do...

Development of the Cancer Survivor Profile-Breast Cancer (CSPro-BC) app: patient and nurse perspectives on a new navigation tool.

Despite advancements in care, cancer survivors continue to report unmet needs following active cancer treatment. The Cancer Survivor Profile-Breast Cancer (CSPro-BC) application (app) was developed to help address these needs, using breast cancer survivors (BCS) as a pilot group. This paper describes the app development, BCS and nurse perceptions of the app, and changes made based on this feedback.

Reciprocal Network between Cancer Stem-Like Cells and Macrophages Facilitates the Progression and Androgen Deprivation Therapy Resistance of Prostate Cancer.

Cancer stem-like cells (CSCs) contribute to the progression and androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) resistance of prostate cancer. Since CSCs depend on their specific niche, including tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs), elucidating the network between CSCs and TAMs may help to effectively inhibit the progression and ADT resistance of prostate cancer.

Metformin targets Mitochondrial Glycerophosphate Dehydrogenase (mGPDH) to control Rate of Oxidative Phosphorylation and growth of thyroid cancer in vitro and in vivo.

Mitochondrial glycerophosphate dehydrogenase (mGPDH) is the key enzyme connecting oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) and glycolysis as well as a target of the antidiabetic drug metformin (MF) in the liver. There are no data on the expression and role of mGPDH as a metformin target in cancer. In this study, we evaluated mGPDH as a potential target of metformin in thyroid cancer and investigated its contribution in thyroid cancer metabolism.

Social factors matter in cancer risk and survivorship.

Greater attention to social factors, such as race/ethnicity, socioeconomic position, and others, are needed across the cancer continuum, including breast cancer, given differences in tumor biology and genetic variants have not completely explained the persistent Black/White breast cancer mortality disparity. In this commentary, we use examples in breast cancer risk assessment and survivorship to demonstrate how the failure to appropriately incorporate social factors into the design, recruitment, and analysi...

Role of Immunotherapy in the Treatment of Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Anal Canal.

Anal cancer is a rare malignancy for which cisplatin with 5-fluorouracil is the recommended treatment for patients with metastatic disease. Because most cases of anal cancer are linked to prior infection with oncogenic strands of the human papillomavirus, immunotherapeutic approaches have been of great interest in the development of new treatments for this virally driven tumor. This article reviews the early successes of anti-PD-1 therapies and adoptive T-cell therapies for metastatic anal cancer as a poten...

Diversity of brain metastases screening and management in non-small cell lung cancer in Europe: Results of the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer Lung Cancer Group survey.

Brain metastases (BM) are frequent in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients, but there is a lack of evidence-based management of this patient group. We aimed to capture a snapshot of routine BM management in Europe to identify relevant research questions for future clinical trials.
