PROBLEM/CONDITION: As a result of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, millions of U.S. adults attained health insurance coverage. However, millions of adults remain uninsured or underinsured. Compared with adults without barriers to health care, adults who lack health insurance coverage, have coverage gaps, or skip or delay care because of limited personal finances might face increased risk for poor physical and mental health and premature mortality. PERIOD COVERED: 2014...

OBJECTIVE: Mindfulness meditation reduces psychological distress among individuals with cancer. However, mechanisms for intervention effects have not been fully determined. This study tested emotion regulation strategies as mediators of intervention effects in a sample of younger women treated for breast cancer, a group at risk for psychological distress. We focused on two distinct strategies targeted by the intervention-rumination and self-kindness-and further examined the broader construct of mindfulness as a potential mediator...

Little is known about out-of-pocket (OOP) costs incurred for medical and health needs by rural breast cancer survivors and what factors may be associated with higher OOP costs and the associated economic burden. Data were examined for 432 survivors participating in the Rural Breast Cancer Survivor Intervention trial. OOP costs were collected using the Work and Finances Inventory survey at baseline and four assessments every 3 months. Mean and median OOP costs and burden (percent of monthly income spent on OOP costs) were reported and factors associated with OOP costs and burden identified with generalized linear models fitted with over-dispersed gamma distributions and logarithmic links (OOP costs) and with beta distributions with logit link (OOP burden)...

PURPOSE: A relationship of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and breast cancer etiology and outcome may have clinical utility and potential to enhance understanding of tumor biology. Research to date has yielded variable results, likely reflecting differing virus detection assays and unaddressed epidemiologic heterogeneity across studies. METHODS: Applying our novel, five-target assay detection strategy in an exploratory study, we examined demographic, clinical, and tumor characteristics, and overall survival, associated with EBV positivity in breast adenocarcinomas from 59 non-Hispanic white and 68 Hispanic women sampled by age (<50, 50+) and stage (localized, regional/remote) and examined associations based on single assay targets...

INTRODUCTION: Breast cancer has long-term effects on health-related quality of life (HRQOL) of cancer survivors after treatment. Few research studies have focused on the association between health behaviors and HRQOL of Chinese breast cancer survivors (BCS). The aim of this study was to examine the separate and combined influence of physical exercise, vegetable and fruit intake on health-related quality of life of BCS. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted among BCS from April to July 2013, in Shanghai, China...

A computer-aided detection (CADe) algorithm for clustered microcalcifications (MCs) in reconstructed digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) images is suggested. The MC-like objects were enhanced by a Hessian-based 3D calcification response function, and a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) enhanced image was also generated to screen the MC clustering seed objects. A connected component segmentation method was used to detect the cluster seed objects, which were considered as potential clustering centers of MCs. Bounding cubes for the accepted clustering seed candidate were generated and the overlapping cubes were combined and examined...

RATIONALE: The occurrence of primary cutaneous diffuse large B cell lymphoma-other (PCDLBCL-O) has been rarely reported in the literature. Its diagnosis is based on histopathological and immunohistochemical examinations. To improve the clinical diagnosis and treatment for PCDLBCL-O, we report a case of PCDLBCL-O successfully treated by the combination of R-CHOP (A chemotherapy protocol consists of cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone plus Rituximab) chemotherapy and surgery...

BACKGROUND: Many cancer survivors feel unprepared for the physical and psychosocial challenges that accompany the post-treatment care transition (i.e., re-entry phase), including management of cancer-related symptoms. Few studies have investigated personal and contextual factors associated with the extent of preparedness for re-entry or how they are related to cancer-related symptom management. PURPOSE: Data from the American Cancer Society's Cancer Survivor Transition Study examined (1) characteristics of breast, prostate, and colorectal cancer survivors (n = 1188) within the first year of completing treatment who are most and least prepared for re-entry; and (2) how preparedness level and other characteristics are related to cancer-related symptom management...

Tenascin C (TNC) is a key of extracellular matrix glycoprotein and highly express in numerous human malignancies. Herein, we attempted to clarify the clinicopathological significance of TNC as a prognostic determinant of breast ductal carcinoma. Then, we investigated TNC immunohistochemical expression in 150 breast ductal carcinomas and 27 normal breast tissue samples. Clinical relevance of TNC expression and the association TNC expression with other factors related to cancer-associated fibroblasts were also examined...

BACKGROUND: Breast cancer is currently the most common type of cancer in Japanese females. Unlike most other types of cancer, breast cancer develops more frequently in middle-aged females than in elderly females. METHODS: Of all Japanese female breast cancer patients aged ≥20 years whom the BioBank Japan Project originally enrolled between 2003 and 2008, 2034 were registered within 90 days after their diagnosis. We described the lifestyle and clinical characteristics of these patients at study entry...

BACKGROUND: Mechanisms underlying the inverse association between physical activity and survival after breast cancer are unresolved, but DNA methylation may play a role. We hypothesized that promoter methylation of breast cancer-related genes, as well as global methylation, may modify the association between prediagnostic recreational physical activity (RPA) and breast cancer mortality. METHODS: Using a population-based sample of 1254 women diagnosed with first primary breast cancer, we examined modification of the RPA-mortality association by gene-specific promoter methylation and global methylation...

PURPOSE: The influence of extracellular matrix components like glycosaminoglycans (GAG) or adhesive proteins on the migration of cancer cells and the progression of tumorigenesis remains a challenging task. Therefore, this study aims to give insight into the interaction of cancer cells exhibiting different metastatic potential (MDA-MB-231, MDA-MB-468) with surface immobilized GAG interacting with serum proteins like fibronectin. METHODS: Model substrata were covalently coated with different thiolated GAG (hyaluronan (HA), chondroitin sulfate (CS), heparin (Hep)) and investigated for the adsorption of fibronectin (FN) with surface plasmon resonance...

BACKGROUND: African American (AA) women are more likely to be given a diagnosis of breast cancer at an early age, experience morbidity after treatment, and exhibit disparities in survivorship. Although psychosocial well-being is largely studied among breast cancer survivors, data are sparse regarding young AA survivors. OBJECTIVE: This integrative review examined psychosocial concerns in survivorship among young AA survivors using a quality-of-life framework. METHODS: PubMed, CINHAL, EMBASE, PsychINFO, and Scopus were searched for articles exploring psychosocial well-being in young AA survivors...

BACKGROUND: Health literacy enables effective communication, participation, and cooperation with clinicians of patients with breast cancer in healthcare processes. The European Health Literacy Survey Questionnaire (HLS-EU-Q) comprehensively assesses multiple conceptual domains of health literacy in a diverse range of health contexts. However, the HLS-EU-Q has not been validated in women with breast cancer. OBJECTIVES: We examined the psychometric properties, particularly the factorial validity, of the HLS-EU-Q in women with breast cancer...

A breast cholesterol granuloma is a rare benign condition that can be a pitfall in diagnosing breast cancer. We describe a cholesterol granuloma in the breast mimicking breast cancer on sonography. The mass was confirmed to be a cholesterol granuloma through a core needle biopsy, but an excisional biopsy was eventually performed due to suspicious sonographic appearance and histopathological examination of the specimen confirmed the diagnosis. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
