Use of treatment for breast cancer is dependent on the patient's cancer characteristics and willingness to undergo treatment and provider treatment recommendations. Receipt of breast cancer treatment varies by insurance status and type. It is not clear whether different benefit types and care sources differ in breast cancer.
Despite dramatic advances in cancer treatment that lead to long-term survival, there is an increasing number of patients presenting with clinical manifestations of cerebral metastasis in breast cancer, for whom only palliative treatment options exist.
Cervical cancer remains the second most common cancer amongst female aged 15 to 44 years old in Vietnam. We estimated medical costs for the treatment of cervical cancer patients. We employed the standard costing approach and healthcare provider perspective. We first computed the unit cost of 22 medical services related to cervical cancer treatments and then, based on standard cervical cancer treatment protocols, we estimated the cost of nine treatment scenarios for cervical cancer patients. We found that t...
Pregnancy-associated breast cancer is defined as invasive breast cancer diagnosed during gestation, within 1 year postpartum, or during lactation. Of particular interest is the treatment of invasive breast cancer during gestation; standard treatment protocols must take into account the health of the fetus. This article reviews the literature and emerging data regarding the treatment of pregnancy-associated breast cancer. Existing staging and treatment practices need slight modification in the setting of pre...
Treatment for oesophageal cancer has evolved due to developments including the centralisation of surgery and introduction of neoadjuvant treatment. Therefore, this study evaluated trends in stage distribution, treatment and survival of oesophageal cancer patients in the last 26 years in the Netherlands.
The current study was performed to characterize the employment status of survivors of hematological cancer who have an informal caregiver from the time of diagnosis through the first 6 months of treatment.
The following chapter details diagnosis, treatment, and aftermath from a head and neck cancer patient's point of view. It illustrates the potential daily challenges of undergoing treatment while coping with the diagnosis of cancer. The toxicities of treatment and recovery from them are described to better inform treating physicians, as well as counsel future patients on the preparation needed for a successful outcome. We acknowledge each patient has a unique story to tell. This is one patient's story.
The potential predictive value of genetic polymorphisms in ovarian cancer first-line treatment is inconsistently reported. We aimed to review ovarian cancer pharmacogenetic studies to update and summarize the available data and to provide directions for further research.
Cancer is a disease associated with ageing. Increased life expectancy means that cancer in older adults is becoming an increasingly common problem. There are unique issues to consider when making decisions about cancer treatment in older populations. Unfortunately, however, this group is still under-represented in clinical trials for new cancer therapies meaning there are less evidence-based data to guide management. This article aims to look at how we can optimise the cancer treatment for older patients wi...
Immunotherapy has become a treatment option for lung cancer. The utility of nivolumab as second-line treatment for non-small cell lung cancer has been proven, but predictive biomarkers influencing its efficacy remain unknown.
Precision medicine in cancer care uses specific information about a person's tumor to help diagnose, plan treatment, prognosticate, and surveil throughout the cancer trajectory. Applications exist for cancer prevention, early detection, cancer treatment, and supportive care. Several national initiatives (e.g., National Cancer Moonshot Initiative) support these efforts to accelerate this science forward. .
Because of the physiological decline and the diversity of preferences, treating older patients with cancer is challenging. Given the insufficient evidence applicable to treating cancer in older patients, some clinical guidance is necessary. This study provides a description of current treatment practices in Japan, which may shed light on possible treatment options.
The decision-making process for treatment of prostate cancer should not be based on a single parameter such as patient age but should account for cancer characteristics, life expectancy, comorbidities, and patient expectation. Local treatment might be beneficial in selected elderly men with aggressive disease and a long life expectancy.
The research on cancer treatment decision-making focuses on dyads; the full "triad" of patients, oncologists, and caregivers remains largely unstudied. We investigated how all members of this triad perceive and experience decisions related to treatment for advanced cancer.
Breast cancer is a common cancer in women of worldwide. Cancer cells with stem-like properties played important roles in breast cancer, such as relapse, metastasis and treatment resistance. Micro-RNA-155 (miR-155) is a well-known oncogenic miRNA overexpressed in many human cancers.
Racial disparities in cancer treatment-related symptom burden are well documented and linked to worse treatment outcomes. Yet, little is known about racial differences in patients' treatment-related symptom management experiences. Such understanding can help identify modifiable drivers of symptom burden inequities. As part of the Cancer Health Accountability for Managing Pain and Symptoms (CHAMPS) study, we examined racial differences in symptom management experiences among Black and White breast cancer sur...
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) T790M mutation serves as an important predictor of osimertinib efficacy. However, little is known about how it works among patients with various timings of T790M emergence and treatment.
Treatment decisions in localized prostate cancer are complicated by the available choices. A rapid-access cancer clinic (RAC) has been unique to Calgary, AB, since 2007. This RAC offers multidisciplinary prostate cancer education by a urologist, medical oncologist, and radiation oncologist. It is hypothesized that treatment utilization data from decisions taken at RAC may serve to benchmark the appropriateness of treatment decisions on a population level.
The transition out of acute cancer treatment has been identified as a time of stress and uncertainty for cancer survivors, but little is known about how caregivers fare during this period. In this paper, we discuss caregiving work up to and including transition from initial care and the needs of caregivers during transition and beyond.
Cancer cachexia negatively impacts cancer-related treatment options, quality of life, morbidity, and mortality, yet no established therapies exist. We investigated the anabolic properties of testosterone to limit the loss of body mass in late stage cancer patients undergoing standard of care cancer treatment.
Several studies have reported disparities in the care management and survival of older cancer patients. The aim of our study was to identify determinants of treatment administration in this population of cancer patients aged over 65 years taking into account competing risks of death.
Pancreatic cancer is considered as one of the most lethal types of cancer due to its poor prognosis and lack of effective therapeutic approaches. Although many studies have been done on pancreatic cancer, the current treatment methods did not exhibit successful results. Hence, novel strategies are needed for treatment of pancreatic cancer. The microenvironment of pancreatic cancer contains many factors such as inflammatory cytokines and tumor associated macrophages (TAMs), which influence the tumor's status...
Background: Beliefs about cancer risk and experience of early detection and treatment can impact on willingness to engage with these initiatives. This study describes changes in perceptions of cancer mortality, early detection and treatment among adult New Zealanders (NZ) between two cross-sectional studies conducted in 2001 and 2014/5. Methods: Data was collected via telephone interviews conducted by trained interviewers in 2001 (231 females and 207 males, 64% response rate) and 2014/5 (588 females and 476...
Androgen deprivation therapy remains the backbone of prostate cancer treatment given its pivotal role in the pathogenesis of prostate cancer. The growing knowledge of androgen receptor-independent (i.e. AR-null) prostate cancer cells, however, might advance the treatment paradigm of prostate cancer particularly in castration resistance stage by targeting these pathways. Here, we examined the results of two recent studies, published in Cancer Cell by Bluemn and Shukla et al., and possible clinical impact of ...
Cancer is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in the USA. While the association between venous thrombosis and malignancy is well established, arterial thrombosis has more recently been recognized as a serious complication of cancer and certain chemotherapeutic agents. This review aims to summarize the most recent literature regarding the incidence and risk factors for cancer-related arterial thrombosis, understand the pathophysiologic mechanisms of thrombosis, and highlight the specific diagnostic and...
