Surgical Treatment Options For Patients With Prostate Cancer
Patient Care

Surgery restores weight-bearing ability for patients with periacetabular tumors

Orthopedic surgeons use team-based protocols and highly porous metal components such as cups and augments reinforced with cages to help patients who require reconstruction surgery after oncological tumor resections.

Rehabilitation medicine offers pain management strategies without unwanted side effects

Heat and cold, desensitization, and gait aids and assistive devices that reduce the load on joints and limbs may be particularly beneficial to patients with cancer who have movement-associated pain.


Epigenomic fingerprint in late-stage cancers suggests a common pathway
A test based on H3K36me3 loss, a newly identified epigenomic fingerprint, may help providers improve diagnosis and treatment of advanced disease across a wide variety of cancer types.

Molecular data helps to better classify patients with glioma
A new approach that categorizes brain tumors according to the presence of three genetic alterations 1p/19q codeletion, IDH mutation and TERT mutation can be used to sort gliomas into five categories, each with different clinical features and outcomes.

New regimen offers longer disease control and a decreased risk of relapse for patients with CLL
Ibrutinib and chemotherapy (bendamustine and rituximab, known as BR) reduced the risk of death or cancer progression by almost 80 percent in patients with previously treated CLL or SLL compared with use of BR alone.

Studies tackle Cologuard questions
Cologuard, a noninvasive multitarget stool screening test for colorectal cancer, has been found to have a sensitivity for cancer equal to colonoscopy. But questions remain about the test's role in the colorectal cancer screening algorithm.
