BACKGROUND: Progress in cancer biomarker discovery is dependent on access to high-quality biological materials and high-resolution clinical data from the same cases. To overcome current limitations, a systematic prospective longitudinal sampling of multidisciplinary clinical data, blood and tissue from cancer patients was therefore initiated in 2010 by Uppsala and Umeå Universities and involving their corresponding University Hospitals, which are referral centers for one third of the Swedish population...

BACKGROUND: Few risk factors for sporadic vestibular schwannoma (VS) are known. Several studies have proposed an increased risk with occupational noise exposure, whereas no studies have investigated residential traffic noise exposure as a risk factor. The present study investigated if residential traffic noise was associated with vestibular schwannoma in a large, population-based Danish case-control study. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We identified 1454 VS cases, age above 30 years at diagnosis, between 1990 and 2007...

BACKGROUND: Although symptoms of depression and anxiety are linked to health-related quality of life (HRQoL), the nature of this relationship remained unclear. We therefore aimed to examine, in a prospective study, both possible directions of impact in this relationship. To avoid conceptual and measurement overlap between depressive and anxiety symptoms, on the one hand, and HRQoL, on the other hand, we focused on the physical functioning component of HRQoL. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We conducted a secondary analysis of a prospective cohort study with 436 female breast cancer patients (mean age 51 years)...

BACKGROUND: Validation studies of the Danish Breast Cancer Group (DBCG) registry show good agreement with medical records for adjuvant treatment data, but inconsistent recurrence information. No studies have validated changes in menopausal status or endocrine therapy during follow-up. In a longitudinal study, we validated DBCG data using medical records as the gold standard. MATERIAL AND METHODS: From a cohort of 5959 premenopausal women diagnosed during 2002-2010 with stage I-III breast cancer, we selected 151 patients - 77 estrogen-receptor-positive and 74 estrogen-receptor-negative - from three hospitals...

Peter Strang, Jenny Bergqvist
BACKGROUND: The possible chemotherapy effects on symptoms in late stages of palliative chemotherapy are seldom registered in clinical practice or investigated as primary outcomes. The aim was therefore to study physicians' opinions and experiences about chemotherapy effects on symptoms. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Thirty-five physicians (mainly oncologists) with variation as regards age, gender and experience were included in a qualitative study with semi-structured interviews...

INTRODUCTION: We review the current knowledge of CT screening for lung cancer and present an expert-based, joint protocol for the proper implementation of screening in the Nordic countries. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Experts representing all the Nordic countries performed literature review and concensus for a joint protocol for lung cancer screening. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: Areas of concern and caution are presented and discussed. We suggest to perform CT screening pilot studies in the Nordic countries in order to gain experience and develop specific and safe protocols for the implementation of such a program...

BACKGROUND: Recent trends in the end-of-life (EOL) cancer care have suggested that the levels of treatment are becoming more aggressive. The aim of this single-center study was to evaluate the time from the last intravenous (IV) chemotherapy treatment to death and identify factors correlating with treatment closer to death. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study included all patients diagnosed with cancer at Turku University Central Hospital between the years 2005 and 2013 (N = 38,982) who received IV chemotherapy during the last year of life (N = 3285)...

BACKGROUND: Admittance to specialized palliative care (SPC) has been discussed in the literature, but previous studies examined exclusively those admitted, not those with an assessed need for SPC but not admitted. The aim was to investigate whether admittance to SPC for referred adult patients with cancer was related to sex, age, diagnosis, geographic region or referral unit. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A register-based study with data from the Danish Palliative Care Database (DPD)...

BACKGROUND: The causes and effects of anastomotic leakage after anterior resection are difficult to study in small samples and have thus been evaluated using large population-based national registries. To assess the accuracy of such research, registries should be validated continuously. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Patients who underwent anterior resection for rectal cancer during 2007-2013 in 15 different hospitals in three healthcare regions in Sweden were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate local control (LC), survival and toxicity in anal cancer patients treated with intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and concurrent chemotherapy at a single institution. MATERIAL AND METHODS: From August 2010 to May 2015, 26 patients were treated at our institution with IMRT and concurrent 5-fluorouracil/mitomycin-C (5-FU/MMC) for localized squamous cell carcinoma of the anal canal (SCCAC). Radiotherapy (RT) with 50.4-60 Gy was delivered with a sequential boost in 31%, and a simultaneous-integrated boost (SIB-IMRT) in 69% of cases...

BACKGROUND: A subset of patients with metastatic GIST become long-term survivors, and a more precise prediction of outcome could improve clinical decision-making. MATERIAL AND METHODS: One-hundred and thirty-three patients diagnosed with metastatic GIST from 1995 to 2013 were identified from the sarcoma database at Oslo University Hospital. Clinical data prospectively registered in the database were supplemented with retrospective review of medical records. Factors associated with survival were analyzed using Kaplan-Meier curves, log-rank test, univariate and multivariate Cox regression analyses...

BACKGROUND: In 2016, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has announced that avoiding body fatness (i.e. overweight and obesity) contributes to prevent meningioma occurrence, but considered the available evidence for glioma inadequate. The association of body fatness with other CNS tumor subgroups is largely unknown. OBJECTIVES: To assess whether body fatness or body height are associated with risk for meningioma, glioma, pituitary adenoma (PA) or nerve sheath tumor (NST) in a large population-based Norwegian cohort...

BACKGROUND: The introduction of adjuvant chemotherapy following surgery for early breast cancer (BC) and its integration into routine clinical practice has consistently improved clinical outcomes. Since the addition of other agents to the contemporary standard of care containing an anthracycline, cyclophosphamide and a taxane has not lead to further prolongation of survival, subsequent efforts concentrated on escalating the administered doses and reducing the time interval between chemotherapy cycles...

BACKGROUND: PET-guided dose painting (DP) aims to target radioresistant tumour regions in order to improve radiotherapy (RT) outcome. Besides the well-known [(18)F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG), the hypoxia positron emission tomography (PET) tracer [(18)F]fluoroazomycin arabinoside (FAZA) could provide further useful information to guide the radiation dose prescription. In this study, we compare the spatial distributions of FDG and FAZA PET uptakes in lung tumours. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Fourteen patients with unresectable lung cancer underwent FDG and FAZA 4D-PET/CT on consecutive days at three time-points: prior to RT (pre), and during the second (w2), and the third (w3) weeks of RT...

BACKGROUND: For women with metastatic breast cancer, late lines of chemotherapy might be beneficial but also harmful. Ongoing chemotherapy late in life increase the risk of late or absent discussions of palliative care and access to symptom relief by other options than chemotherapy. Our aim was, therefore, to investigate breast cancer patients' motives, perceptions, and experiences of late lines of palliative oncologic treatment. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A qualitative study with semi-guided face-to-face interviews with 20 women on at least their second line of palliative chemotherapy (second-eighth line)...

BACKGROUND: The new American Joint Committee on Cancer eighth edition (AJCC8) staging is the first to describe separate clinical and pathology staging systems, but still has low performance to predict prognosis in patients with oesophageal/gastroesophageal junction (O/GOJ) adenocarcinoma, who are candidates for surgery. Recent studies have demonstrated that O/GOJ cancer patients with 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) avid regional lymph nodes (RLNs) may have poor prognosis. The aim of our study was to examine whether the baseline assessment of the FDG uptake of RLN improves the prognostic accuracy of the new AJCC8 staging...

BACKGROUND: Miliary metastases are characterized by metastatic nodules that are diffuse, innumerable and small. The purpose of this study was to examine the incidence, prognostic significance and impact of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations for miliary metastases from non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Patients were identified from a Provincial cancer registry (British Columbia, Canada) for the period 2010-2012. Inclusion criteria were stage IV NSCLC at presentation and conclusive EGFR mutation testing...
