BACKGROUND Insulin resistance is associated with higher all-cause and cancer-specific mortality in postmenopausal women. However, to the authors' knowledge, information regarding insulin resistance and breast cancer mortality risk is limited. Therefore, the authors examined associations between insulin resistance and breast cancer incidence and mortality in a subsample of Women's Health Initiative participants. METHODS A total of 22,837 postmenopausal women with fasting baseline glucose and insu...

BACKGROUND: Understanding how older patients with chronic illnesses use the internet to obtain health information is relevant for the design of digital interventions aimed at improving the health and well-being of adults aged 65 years and older; this cohort represents the sickest, most expensive, and fastest-growing segment of the US population. OBJECTIVE: The objective of our study was to describe online health information-seeking behavior among older patients with chronic illnesses and to comp...

BACKGROUND: To optimize breast cancer care, the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer developed quality measures regarding receipt and timing of adjuvant radiotherapy (RT). Nationwide compliance with these measures and its impact on overall survival (OS) are evaluated herein. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients (n = 285,291) diagnosed with invasive breast cancer from 2004 to 2012 were identified from the National Cancer Database. Compliance with RT administration within 365 days from diag...

Background: In postmenopausal women, use of hormone therapy is associated with a lower incidence of diabetes (DM). The association of adjuvant endocrine therapy (AET) with DM has not been well studied among women treated for early stage breast cancer. The objective of this study was to examine the association of AET with risk of developing DM among postmenopausal women who developed breast cancer. Methods: 5,013 postmenopausal women from the Women’s Health Initiative diagnosed with non-metastati...

INTRODUCTION: Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) is a subtype of breast cancer associated with poor clinical outcome. Patients diagnosed with TNBC may experience many treatment-associated changes, including weight gain, reduced physical activity levels, and worsening metabolic profiles. We sought to identify the association between baseline metabolic syndrome (MetS) components with survival outcomes in WHI participants diagnosed with TNBC. METHODS: The WHI comprises 161,308 post-menopausal wom...

BACKGROUND: Insulin resistance has been proposed as a mediator of the increased cancer incidence and mortality associated with obesity. However, prior studies included limited cancer deaths and had inconsistent findings. Therefore, we evaluated insulin resistance and cancer-specific and all-cause mortality in postmenopausal women participating in the Women's Health Initiative (WHI). METHODS: Eligible were a subsample of 22 837 WHI participants aged 50-79 years enrolled at 40 US clinical centers ...

The Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Program (BCCTP) Act, passed by Congress in 2000, provides time-limited coverage to uninsured breast or cervical cancer patients. We examine survival differences between BCCTP cases and insured controls. Stage I–III breast cancer patients, covered under California’s BCCTP from 2005 to 2009 (N = 6343), were 1:1 matched with California Cancer Registry controls on age, race/ethnicity, and cancer stage. Overall and disease-specific (OS and DSS) survival were c...

Background Loss of monoubiquitination of histone H2B (H2Bub1) was found to be associated with poor differentiation, cancer stemness, and enhanced malignancy of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Herein, we investigated the biological significance and therapeutic implications of ubiquitin-specific protease 22 (USP22), an H2Bub1 deubiquitinase, in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

BACKGROUND: Anal adenocarcinoma is a rare malignancy with a poor prognosis, and no randomized data are available to guide management. Prior retrospective analyses offer differing conclusions on the benefit of surgical resection after chemoradiotherapy (CRT) in these patients. We used the National Cancer Database (NCDB) to analyze survival outcomes in patients undergoing CRT with and without subsequent surgical resection. METHODS: Patients with adenocarcinoma of the anus diagnosed in 2004 through...
