PURPOSE The Institute of Medicine recommends that cancer patients receive survivorship care plans (SCP) summarizing information important to the individual's long-term care. The various components of SCPs have varying levels of evidence supporting their impact. We surveyed medical oncologists to better understand how they perceived the relative value of different SCP components. METHODS Medical oncologists caring for patients in diverse US practice settings were surveyed (357 respondents; partic...
Homcology is a project that represents both an opportunity for patients who may benefit from chemotherapy so far, but present physical and social problems that prevent day-hospital access, and a model of "no-profit" contribution to the Public Health System. Our medical oncology department conducted the project from May 2014 to January 2019. We included frail patients (G-8 < 14), with advanced disease, treated with oral, subcutaneous, or parenteral biological agents, with limitations to day-hospi...

Bone-modifying agents (BMAs) for bone metastases are commonly prescribed for many years even though randomized clinical trials are only 1–2 years in duration. A systematic review on the risk-benefit of BMA use for > 2 years in breast cancer or castrate-resistant prostate cancer was conducted. MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane databases were searched (1970–February 2019) for randomized and observational studies, and case series reporting on BMA efficacy (skeletal-related events and quality of life) a...

PURPOSE To characterize cancer care provider perceptions of the role of religion and spirituality (RS p = 0.02). All providers were equally as likely to believe that RS IQR 0.9-2.0) compared with physicians (median 1.0; IQR 0.9-2.0) or other providers (median 1.4; IQR 1.0-2.1) (p < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS There were differences between providers in beliefs regarding the role of R&S in the clinical cancer encounter. Of note, nurses and other provider types were more likely than physicians to inquire ...
BACKGROUND Head and neck cancer patients have the second highest malnutrition prevalence, when compared with other oncological patients. They experience significant weight loss before diagnosis, during and after treatment, and even during the first year of follow-up. However, the prognostic value of weight loss depends on body mass index, and this may be associated with low skeletal muscle mass, masking its loss. Thus, weight loss itself poorly predicts outcome in head and neck cancer patients w...

BACKGROUND Digital health provides solutions that capture patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and allows symptom monitoring and patient management. Digital therapeutics is the provision to patients of evidence-based therapeutic interventions through software applications aimed at prevention, monitoring, management, and treatment of symptoms and diseases or for treatment optimization. The digital health solutions collecting PROs address many unmet needs, including access to care and reassurance, inc...

BACKGROUND Breast cancer (BC) is the most common cancer among women in developed countries. Several types of surgical interventions are commonly used in BC, such as mastectomy and quadrantectomy, followed by radiation or not. Today, BC rehabilitation can help survivors obtain and maintain the highest physical, social, psychological, and vocational functioning possible, within the limits that are created by cancer and its treatments. OBJECTIVE To verify, before and after a specific rehabilitation...

AIM The objective was to evaluate the diagnostic value of salivary biomarkers in breast cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS A prospective study was carried out of 91 consecutive breast cancer patients and 60 controls without neoplastic disease. Demographic data were recorded, along with the Hospital Anxiety Depression (HAD), risk for development periodontal diseases questionnaire and Mini-Nutritional Assessment (MNA) scores, and the TNM classification and stage of the primary tumor. Unstimulated basal...

BACKGROUND An incidence of cisplatin-induced acute kidney injury (AKI) of 34% has been reported in patients with locally advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (LA-HNSCC). However, delayed cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity and long-term renal outcomes remain poorly studied. METHODS Patients with LA-HNSCC who underwent definitive or postoperative cisplatin-based chemoradiotherapy (CRT) were included. Acute kidney disease (AKD) was defined as newly developed estimated glomerular filtration ...

Fear of cancer recurrence (FCR) is one of the most common and distressing issues affecting cancer survivors. This study examined (1) the association between modifiable cognitive, behavioral, and social characteristics and FCR, (2) the association between non-modifiable characteristics and FCR, and (3) the relative contributions of modifiable and non-modifiable characteristics to FCR. Participants (n = 120) had been diagnosed with colorectal cancer and completed cancer treatment in the past 6 to ...
