Consider Breast Cancer Histology When Imaging Bone Metastases
The appearance of bone metastases on FDG PET/CT was influenced by breast cancer histology, with non-FDG-avid lesions more common in invasive lobular carcinoma patients.
TRAIL-R2 May Promote Bone Metastases in Breast Cancer
In a mouse model, researchers found that TRAIL-R2 inhibition prevented bone metastases, suggesting a possible therapeutic strategy for breast cancer patients.
Urinary Markers May Predict Response to Re-irradiation of Bone Metastases
In a recently published study, patients who did not respond to initial radiation or re-irradiation of symptomatic bone metastases had significantly higher urinary markers of bone turnover at baseline and follow-up.
Breast Cancer Subtype Associated With Metastasis Pattern, Survival
A recent retrospective study elucidates the correlation between breast cancer subtype and metastasis site, time to relapse, and patient survival.
Bone Metastases in Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors
The risk of bone metastases from GISTs, though rare, should be considered during long-term follow-up of patients, especially in those with liver metastases.
Radiation Response in Breast Cancer Bone Metastases
Researchers were able to demonstrate response to radiotherapy in breast cancer patients with osteolytic metastases by measuring increases in bone density.
RT Effective for Palliation of Bone Metastases From HCC
A recent study found that radiation therapy was effective for the palliation of painful spinal metastases in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma.
Slide Show: Bone Metastases
This slide show features images of diffuse osteoblastic bone metastases in a 70-year-old advanced prostate cancer patient, bone metastases in the vertebral column of a kidney cancer patient, and more.
