Researchers in China have found that the use of [18F] fluorodeoxyglucose PET/CT detected a greater number of distant metastases than conventional work-up imaging in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services is inviting physicians to comment on a proposal to make individual physician payment data accessible to the public.
Researchers in London have identified a number of new genetic variants that are linked to myeloma, and one specifically linked to a telomerase RNA component gene called TERC, that helps to control the aging process by acting as a cell’s internal clock.
Two separate studies have found direct evidence that F. nucleatum, a bacteria found in the mouth and in periodontal plaques, promotes growth of colorectal tumors.
Researchers in Canada have shown for the first time that the incidence of HPV-related oropharyngeal cancers is increasing among the Canadian population.
A retrospective analysis of the HERA trial indicated that young age was not associated with early recurrence in women with HER2-positive breast cancer, despite previous research suggesting that young age at diagnosis might be a risk factor for recurrence and death.
Researchers found that circulating cell-free DNA could represent a possible predictive marker of response in advanced melanoma patients treated with dabrafenib.
Being offered a brief, dedicated discussion of end-of-life decisions relatively early in the trajectory of advanced cancer led to an earlier placement of do-not-resuscitate orders and decreased the likelihood that patients died in a hospital, a new study showed.
Surgeons saw advantages in robotic, over laparoscopic, ultrasound probes during robotic partial nephrectomy, and similar perioperative outcomes and margin rates.
Dr. Bruce Roth discusses the large Danish study reported at ASCO (abstract 4502) that showed surveillance alone is sufficient after orchiectomy for stage I seminoma, focusing on its impact on post-surgery radiation therapy in this setting.
