Programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) expression status is inadequate for indicating nivolumab in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Because the baseline advanced lung cancer inflammation index (ALI) is reportedly associated with patient outcomes, we investigated whether the pretreatment ALI is prognostic in NSCLC patients treated with nivolumab. We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of all patients treated with nivolumab for advanced NSCLC between December 2015 and May 2016 at three Japanese institutes...

PURPOSE: Radiation therapy is complex and demands high vigilance and precise coordination. Radiation therapists (RTTs) directly deliver radiation and are often the first to discover an error. Yet, few studies have examined the practices of RTTs regarding patient safety. We conducted a national survey to explore the perspectives of RTTs related to quality and safety. METHODS AND MATERIALS: In 2016, an electronic survey was sent to a random sample of 1500 RTTs in the United States...

INTRODUCTION: At the end of life of cancer patients, sedation is sometimes needed, in order to palliate unbearable symptoms that other treatments fail to relieve. Midazolam is currently recommended for sedation and its prescription is guided by national guidelines. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the practices of midazolam prescription in a department of medical oncology and to compare the results with French national recommendations in order to improve the midazolam use in case of sedation...

Cancer is a disease of the elderly as demonstrated by the epidemiological evolution of Western countries. Indeed, two third of cancers newly diagnosed occur over 65 years. However, older cancer patients have been often excluded from clinical trials in oncology and the extrapolation of cancer treatments in this population remains difficult in practice. Scientific societies recommend that a comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) be performed in patients aged 70 and over and selected using screening tools for frailty such as the G8 index...

Nowadays, fast and sensitive methods for biomarkers detection exist, but the performance of most of them still rely in centralized laboratory testing. The development of small, fast and simple to use medical device that can help in making diagnosis accurate and with low-invasiveness is now a major challenge for nanotechnology. To develop diagnostic devices for cancer detection, nanomaterials-based systems have significant advantages over current conventional approaches in terms of simplicity, sensitivity, specificity and rapidity...

BACKGROUND: Although an association between hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and oropharyngeal cancers (OPCs) has been reported, to the authors' knowledge the clinical significance of this epidemiological finding remains unknown. Therefore, the authors analyzed the oncologic outcomes of HCV-infected patients with OPCs. METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, all patients with OPCs who were seen at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center between January 2004 and December 2015 were reviewed...

The fields of medicine and oncology made substantial progress between 1800 and 1885. The first half of this period was dominated by the spectacular progress in physiology, cytology, histology, histopathology, and diagnostic microscopy. In the second half of the period, advancements in surgical techniques, anesthesia, asepsis, and laboratory medicine, including bacteriology, chemistry, and biochemistry, led to the development of medical specialties, including surgical pathology and surgical oncology. Although wars, revolutions, and socioeconomic upheavals interrupted the daily life of the populace, distinguished artists, scientists, and physicians continued, against all odds, to advance their field of interest...

BACKGROUND: In January 2014, a national bowel cancer screening program started in the Netherlands. The program is being implemented in phases until 2019. Due to this program, an increase in patients referred for a colorectal resection for benign, but endoscopically unresectable polyps, is expected. So far, most resections are performed according to oncological principles despite no pre-operative histological diagnosis of malignancy. The aim of this study was to analyze the increase in referred patients during the first year of the screening program and to compare pathological results and clinical outcome of resections of patients undergoing resection for benign polyps before and after implementation of screening...

Purpose: To validate a clinical risk prediction score (Ammann score) to predict adverse events (AEs) in paediatric febrile neutropenia (FN). Patients and methods: Patients <16 years of age were enrolled. A risk prediction score (based on haemoglobin ≥ 9 g/dl, white cell count (WCC) < 0.3 G/l, platelet count <50 G/l and chemotherapy more intensive than acute lymphoblastic leukaemia maintenance therapy) was calculated and AEs were documented. Results: In total, 100 FN episodes occurred in 52 patients, male:female ratio was 1...

The Oncology Nursing Society is the steward of seven patient-centered, symptom-focused custom quality measures that have been codified into electronic format to facilitate extraction of data from the electronic health record. Because quality measurement is the cornerstone of the Quality Payment Program for providers in the pay-for-value framework, oncology nurses must be engaged in the quality measurement and improvement activities within their practice sites.

In life, meeting someone who truly possesses the gift of teaching is a blessing. As an exceptional mentor and role model, this person will inspire us to be the best that we can be and make us want to be better human beings. As oncology nurses, we have the honor of caring for patients who have been devastated by the diagnosis of cancer. Establishing deep connections with some of these patients will enrich and give more meaning to our own lives.

Genetic testing for hereditary cancer syndromes is an integral component of oncology care. Various types of common errors that occur in the genetic testing process are presented in this article with actual clinical case examples and commentary. Genetic errors are expensive and may result in poor outcomes for the patient and his or her family. Oncology nurses need to be aware of potential sources of error and advocate for comprehensive genetic care.
