Surgery associated with better survival for patients with advanced laryngeal cancer

Patients with advanced laryngeal cancer appear to have better survival if they are treated with surgery than nonsurgical chemoradiation. Approximately 11,000 to 13,000 cases of laryngeal cancer are diagnosed each year and squamous cell carcinoma accounts for the vast majority of these tumors. Prior to 1991, total surgical removal of the larynx with postoperative radiation [...]

For HIV+ patients diagnosed with lymphoma, hepatitis C reactivation does not worsen survival outcomes

More than a quarter of HIV+ patients are also infected with the Hepatitis C virus (HCV), which may complicate treatment and care decisions after a cancer diagnosis. The specifics of those complications haven’t been well-researched in the past. Results from a new Fox Chase Cancer Center study on this patient population may start filling in [...]

Identification of 10-gene biomarker has implications for ovarian cancer discovery, survival outcomes

Researchers in the Women’s Cancer Program at Cedars-Sinai’s Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute have identified a series of 10 genes that may signify a trifecta of benefits for women diagnosed with ovarian cancer and ultimately reflect improved survival outcomes. The research, led by Dong-Joo (Ellen) Cheon, PhD, found that the 10-gene biomarker panel may identify [...]

Patients With Early-Stage Follicular Lymphoma Have Many Options, Good Outcomes

A University of Rochester Medical Center study challenges treatment guidelines for early stage follicular lymphoma, concluding that six different therapies can bring a remission, particularly if the patient is carefully examined and staged at diagnosis. The research underlines the fact that when cancer strikes, modern patients and their oncologists across the United States are taking [...]

African-Americans With Throat Cancer And HPV Have Greater Chance Of Survival

Even though the human papillomavirus (HPV) is a risk factor for certain head and neck cancers, its presence could make all the difference in terms of survival, especially for African Americans with throat cancer, say Henry Ford Hospital researchers. According to their new study, HPV has a substantial impact on overall survival in African Americans [...]
