Initial experience with genomic profiling of heavily pretreated breast cancers.
Ann. Surg. Oncol.
PUBLISHED: 04-30-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Rapidly evolving advances in the understanding of theorized unique driver mutations within individual patient's cancers, as well as dramatic reduction in the cost of genomic profiling, have stimulated major interest in the role of such testing in routine clinical practice. The aim of this study was to report our initial experience with genomic testing in heavily pretreated breast cancer patients.

Hide Abstract
While the use of quality of life (QoL) assessments has been increasing in oncology, few studies have examined the prognostic significance of QoL in breast cancer. We investigated the association between QoL at presentation and survival in breast cancer. We examined 1,511 breast cancer patients treated at two single-system cancer centers between January 2001 and December 2008. QoL was evaluated using the validated survey instrument EORTC-QLQ-C30. Patient survival was defined as the time interval between the date of first patient visit and the date of death from any cause/date of last contact. Univariate and multivariate Cox regression analyses were performed to evaluate the prognostic significance of QoL after controlling for the effects of age, tumor stage, and prior treatment history. Mean age at presentation was 52.5 years. There were 590 analytic and 921 non-analytic patients. Patient stage of disease at diagnosis was I, 335; II, 591; III, 290; IV, 159; and 136 indeterminate. Median overall survival was 32.8 months (95% CI: 27.6-38.0). On univariate analysis, QoL function and symptom scales that were predictive of survival were physical (p < 0.001), role (p < 0.001), cognitive (p = 0.003), social (p < 0.001), fatigue (p < 0.001), nausea/vomiting (p < 0.001), pain (p < 0.001), dyspnea (p < 0.001), loss of appetite (p < 0.001), and constipation (p < 0.001). On multivariate analyses, only role function (degree of impairment of work and/or leisure/hobby related activities) was significantly associated with survival. This study suggests that baseline QoL (in particular, the role function) provides useful prognostic information in breast cancer.

Effect of naturopathic and nutritional supplement treatment on tumor response, control, and recurrence in patients with prostate cancer treated with radiation therapy.
J Altern Complement Med
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Use of naturopathic and nutritional supplements (NNS) with antioxidant activity is controversial in patients receiving radiation therapy. The effects of concomitant use of NNS with antioxidant activity during radiation therapy for prostate cancer were investigated in terms of clinical tumor responsiveness, kinetics, and durability.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
