Along with reducing spleen size, relieving symptom severity is a key objective of the treatment of myelofibrosis (MF). Several questionnaires have been developed for patient self-report of MF symptoms in clinical trials and each includes unique instructions, items, and/or response scales. This variability in questionnaire content increases uncertainty; it is unclear which questionnaire is the most appropriate for assessing MF symptoms and it makes comparisons across trials difficult. The Patient-Reported Outcome (PRO) Consortium's MF Working Group (WG) was established to review existing MF symptom questionnaires and to develop a harmonized, consensus-based PRO questionnaire for use in future MF trials...

BACKGROUND: Maxillary sinus carcinoma is an uncommon malignancy. Most reports on prognosis of this disease are from single institutions and include few patients. We used data from the United States National Cancer Institute's Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) program to construct models and nomograms for predicting outcomes of patients with maxillary sinus carcinomas. METHODS: We used records from 668 patients with primary maxillary sinus carcinomas reported to the SEER program from 2004 to 2013 to build nomograms based on stratified multivariable Cox proportional hazard models for predicting 5-year overall survival (OS) and cause-specific survival (CSS)...
