Patients with localized prostate cancer treated with primary androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) without radiation therapy or surgery derived no survival benefit, according to the results of a large study.

A new pilot study demonstrates the ability of a blood-based test to detect metastatic breast cancer recurrence with high sensitivity and specificity.

This slide show includes highlights from the 2014 Society of Gynecologic Oncology annual meeting, including one study showing bariatric surgery could lower the risk of uterine cancer, and another that found a PARP inhibitor active in BRCA-positive ovarian cancer.

GlaxoSmithKline has stopped a phase III trial of a novel lung cancer immunotherapeutic agent, after determining that it may not be possible to identify which genetic subgroups may benefit from the treatment.

Using both clinical and molecular markers, researchers have created a simple prognostic index for patients with cytogenetically normal acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

The addition of gemcitabine to a cisplatin- and ifosfamide-containing drug regimen resulted in a complete response rate of greater than 50% in patients with relapsed metastatic germ cell tumors, results of a phase II study indicated.

Although uncommon in women less than 40 years old, breast cancer in younger women may have unique biologic and treatment implications. The purpose of this study was to evaluate treatment of breast cancer in young women with respect to previously established clinical predictors of local therapy choice.

There are over 3.0 million cases of nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) diagnosed each year in the United States. Multiple treatment options exist for the treatment of these patients. We describe the outcomes of patients treated at a large private dermatology practice with electronic brachytherapy (eBx) who had a minimum follow-up duration of 1 year.

The World Health Organization predicts that 26.4 million new cancer cases will be reported in 2030 alone. It is necessary to establish an effective mentoring paradigm in radiological science, not just for medical students (MS) but also for high school (HS) and college undergraduate (UG) students, to promote a greater general awareness of the study of oncology as well as its therapeutic implementation.

Intriguing data suggest that clinical complete response following neoadjuvant chemoradiation (CRT) may obviate the need for definitive resection in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer.
