  • Radiation and immunotherapy combination can destroy both primary and secondary tumors
    The addition of an immune system-strengthening compound to radiation therapy can extend the radiation therapy-induced immune response against the tumor sites and that this response even has an effect on tumors outside the radiation field.

  • New cancer drugs could treat lethal resistant prostate cancers
    Men with aggressive prostate cancer that has stopped responding to conventional treatment could potentially benefit from a new class of cancer drug designed to overcome drug resistance, a new study suggests. Researchers found that the drugs, called Hsp90 inhibitors, specifically target and inactivate a mechanism commonly used by prostate cancer cells to evade the effects of standard treatment.

  • Failure to publish trial results exposes patients to risks without providing benefits
    Although the publication of results of clinical trials carried out in the USA within 12 months of their completion has been mandatory since 2007, an astoundingly high number of Phase III radiotherapy trials did not do so, according to new research. An analysis of 802 trials with a primary completion date of before Jan. 1, 2013, showed that 655, or 81.7 percent, did not publish even a summary result.

  • Is breast conserving therapy or mastectomy better for early breast cancer?
    Young women with early breast cancer face a difficult choice about whether to opt for a mastectomy or breast conserving therapy (BCT). New research has shown young women, who had early stage breast cancer that had not spread to the lymph nodes and who opted for BCT with radiation therapy, had a 13 percent higher risk of developing a local recurrence of their disease over a 20-year period than women who had a mastectomy and no radiation therapy.

  • Diluted apple juice, preferred fluids for treating mild gastroenteritis in kids
    Children with mild gastroenteritis and minimal dehydration experienced fewer treatment failures such as IV rehydration or hospitalization when offered half-strength apple juice followed by their preferred fluid choice compared with children who received electrolyte maintenance solution to replace fluid losses, according to a new study.
