Effective systemic therapy for the treatment of stage III melanoma has emerged. Whether this influences treatment choice in stage III melanoma patients with in-transit metastases is the subject of this review.
The combination of bortezomib and dexamethasone with 160 mg daily ricolinostat, a selective histone deacetylase 6 inhibitor, was well tolerated and active in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.
Participation in a training program increased levels of self-confidence for both patients and their partners in performing skin self-examinations to detect melanoma.
In this interview we discuss a recent study that found that more than half of patients with locally advanced cervical cancer in the United States did not receiving standard of care.
The addition of clofarabine to standard induction therapy for newly diagnosed acute myeloblastic leukemia reduced the probably of relapse but increased toxicity and had no effect on survival.
Here we review the role of interim PET/CT in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), and also explore the question of whether new approaches to quantitative assessment improve the prognostic value of interim PET scans in both Hodgkin lymphoma and DLBCL.
Here we critically analyze the role of PET/CT in the early assessment of Hodgkin lymphoma.
Here we outline the most promising novel cellular immune strategies for patients with multiple myeloma. In addition, we highlight combinatorial approaches that, it is hoped, will further optimize cellular immunotherapies for myeloma and lead to deep and durable responses and, possibly, even cures.
The journal ONCOLOGY includes a cartoon at the end of each issue. Here are the collected cartoons to date.
