This study was undertaken to establish the presence and characteristics of receptors for [D-Trp(6)]LH-RH on the membranes of human ovarian cancer. Specific binding of [I-125, D-Trp(6)]LH-RH was found in 29 of 37 (78.4%) ovarian cancers and in 6 of 11…

Objectives. To prospectively evaluate quality of life (QoL), use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), and diet/exercise changes in ovarian cancer patients during the first 6 months following diagnosis. Methods. Patients with newly…

Context. Women diagnosed with ovarian cancer are at risk for reduced quality of life (QOL). It is imperative to further define these declines to interpret treatment outcomes and design appropriate clinical interventions. Objectives. The primary…

Objective(s). The objective was to determine whether there were changes in the pattern and nature of hospitalizations during the last year that could be used in the assessment of whether chemotherapy should be continued. Methods. Retrospective data…

BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to assess which quality-of-life (QOL) line items on the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Ovarian (FACT-O) were associated with low QOL in women who were receiving chemotherapy for ovarian cancer.…

`Deficiency of alkaline and acid DNase is a hallmark in all non-necrotic cancer cells in animals and humans. These enzymes are reactivated at early stages of cancer cell death by vitamin C (acid DNase) and vitamin K-3 (alkaline DNase). Moreover, the…

Purpose Lymph node (LN)-negative breast cancer tumors >= 5 cm occur infrequently, and their optimal management is not well defined. In this study, we assess patterns of locoregional failure (LRF) in LN-negative patients who underwent mastectomy,…

Purpose National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) Protocol B-18 was designed to determine whether four cycles of doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide (AC) administered preoperatively improved breast cancer disease-free survival (DFS)…

This paper presents an empirical case study to illustrate, corroborate, and perhaps extend some key generalizations about resilient performance in complex adaptive systems. The setting is a pediatric hematology/oncology pharmacy, a complex system…

Background. The development of multigene assays has proved useful in the clinical management of early-stage breast cancer. The 21-gene recurrence score (RS) assay has been shown to quantify risk of distant recurrence and predict chemotherapy benefit…

Adjuvant hormonal therapy and adjuvant chemotherapy have contributed significantly to the falling rates of breast cancer mortality. The introduction of taxanes and aromatase inhibitors in the adjuvant setting represents recent important improvements.…

In patients with operable breast cancer, adjuvant hormonal therapy and adjuvant chemotherapy result in significant and long-term reductions in the rates of disease recurrence and death. These reductions are evident in both patients with node-negative…

BACKGROUND: Brain cancer from metastasized breast cancer has a high mortality rate in women. The treatment of lesions is hampered in large part by the blood-brain barrier (BBB), which prevents adequate distribution of anti-cancer compounds to brain…

Adjuvant hormonal therapy and adjuvant chemotherapy have contributed significantly to the falling rates of breast cancer mortality. The introduction of taxanes and aromatase inhibitors in the adjuvant setting represents recent important improvements.…

Breast-conserving surgery (BCS) is an attractive option for many patients with early-stage breast cancer, because it provides a better cosmetic outcome than modified radical mastectomy, while reducing surgical morbidity. In patients with large,…

When patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) fail to respond after initiation of empirical therapy, it is necessary for the physician to consider a number of possibilities. The diagnosis should be reviewed, with consideration given to both…
