BACKGROUND: Annual computed tomography (CT) scans are a component of the current standard of care for the posttreatment surveillance of survivors of colorectal cancer (CRC) after curative-intent resection. The authors conducted a retrospective study with the primary aim of assessing patient, physician, and organizational characteristics associated with the receipt of CT surveillance among veterans. METHODS: The Department of Veterans Affairs Central Cancer Registry was used to identify patients diagnosed with AJCC collaborative stage I to III CRC between 2001 and 2009...

BACKGROUND: The dual-probe fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) assay for human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) gene amplification in breast cancer provides an HER2:CEP17 (centromere enumeration probe for chromosome 17) ratio. Copy number alteration (CNA) in CEP17 may skew this ratio. The authors analyzed the impact of the 2013 American Society of Oncology/College of American Pathologists (ASCO/CAP) guidelines and an alternative chromosome 17 probe on HER2 status in tumor specimens with CEP17 CNA...

BACKGROUND: The incorporation of genomic testing to identify targetable somatic alterations and predisposing germline mutations into the clinical setting is becoming increasingly more common. Despite its potential usefulness, to the authors' knowledge physician confidence with regard to understanding and applying genomic testing remains unclear, particularly within the realm of pediatric oncology. METHODS: Before initiating an institutional feasibility study regarding the integration of clinical genomic testing, the authors surveyed pediatric oncologists regarding their confidence around understanding of genomic testing, perceived usefulness of test results, preferences around the disclosure of germline test results, and possible risks and benefits of testing...

Background: The American College of Surgeons and American Geriatrics Society recommend performing a geriatric assessment (GA) in the preoperative evaluation of older patients. To address this, we developed an electronic GA, the Electronic Rapid Fitness Assessment (eRFA). We reviewed the feasibility and clinical utility of the eRFA in the preoperative evaluation of geriatric patients. Methods: We performed a retrospective review of our experience using the eRFA in the preoperative assessment of geriatric patients...

CONTEXT: College of American Pathologists (CAP) and the American Society of Clinical Oncology have emphasized the need to reduce preanalytic variables for evaluating predictive biomarker expression in breast cancer. Postoperative x-ray of excised breast tissue is commonplace, yet is a variable that has not been investigated previously. We asked whether such radiation affects expression of relevant biomarkers. DESIGN: A previous study found that human breast cancers grown in mice demonstrate the same immunohistochemical and molecular profiles as the original tumors...

BACKGROUND: The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) provide guidelines regarding axillary nodal evaluation in ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), but data regarding national compliance with these guidelines remains incomplete. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB) analyzing all surgical approaches to axillary evaluation in patients with DCIS. Logistic regression analysis was used to assess the multivariate relationship between patient demographics, clinical characteristics, and probability of axillary evaluation...

CONTEXT: -Metagenomic sequencing can be used for detection of any pathogens using unbiased, shotgun next-generation sequencing (NGS), without the need for sequence-specific amplification. Proof-of-concept has been demonstrated in infectious disease outbreaks of unknown causes and in patients with suspected infections but negative results for conventional tests. Metagenomic NGS tests hold great promise to improve infectious disease diagnostics, especially in immunocompromised and critically ill patients...

Purpose Molecular testing of colorectal cancers (CRCs) to improve patient care and outcomes of targeted and conventional therapies has been the center of many recent studies, including clinical trials. Evidence-based recommendations for the molecular testing of CRC tissues to guide epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) -targeted therapies and conventional chemotherapy regimens are warranted in clinical practice. The purpose of this guideline is to develop evidence-based recommendations to help establish standard molecular biomarker testing for CRC through a systematic review of the literature...

BACKGROUND: Clinically lymph node-positive (cN+) prostate cancer (PCa) is an often-fatal disease. Its optimal management remains largely undefined given a lack of prospective, randomized data to inform practice. We sought to describe modern practice patterns in the management of cN+PCa and assess the effect of adding radiation therapy (RT) to androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) on survival using the National Cancer Data Base. METHODS: Patients with cN+PCa and without distant metastases diagnosed between 2004 and 2011 were included...

BACKGROUND: An estimated 200 patients have been reported with breast implant associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BI-ALCL), a rare T-cell lymphoma developing around breast prostheses. The purpose of this study was to review federal database submissions relating to BI-ALCL in 37 countries representing the majority of breast implant markets worldwide with available adverse event reporting. METHODS: Database queries were performed for Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Columbia, Japan, Mexico, National Competent Authorities of the European Member States, New Zealand, South Korea, and United States...

: 105 Background: Radiation oncologists are frequently involved in providing palliative and supportive care (PSC) for patients with advanced cancers through delivery of palliative radiation. Whether they are confident in their ability to assess and initiate treatments for pain, non-pain, and psychosocial distress is unknown. The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) surveyed its practicing members in the United States on self-assessment of their primary PSC skills, and access to continuing medical education on PSC...

: 121 Background: Longitudinal palliative care has demonstrated benefits for cancer patients, and the American Society for Clinical Oncology recommends that palliative care be used along with standard anti-cancer therapy at the diagnosis of serious disease. However, studies have shown that oncologists still often refer to palliative care within days of the end of life, or not at all. This indicates that oncologists face barriers, systems-based or self-imposed, to palliative care referral...

: 124 Background: We aim to compare what attributes are important to hematology/oncology (hem/onc) physicians (MD) and patients (pts). METHODS: IRB approval obtained. Pts and MDs at an academic tertiary care medical center were enrolled to complete a survey. Demographics include: age, gender, race, and ethnicity. Clinical info collected: cancer subtype and treating MD. Survey consisted of 5 questions assessing opinions on physician attributes. Patients were asked: "It is important that my doctor" is friendly, is empathetic, is knowledgeable, well dressed, and engaged in research...

: 154 Background: The integration of oncology with palliative care (PC) has been endorsed by the American Society of Clinical Oncology. Starting in 2012, Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC) began introducing Oncology Supportive Care Clinics (OSCCs) to better provide integrated oncology and PC services. We evaluated the impact of OSCCs on outpatient PC referrals among patients diagnosed with advanced cancers. METHODS: We included all adult patients diagnosed with incidental stage IV cancer from 2010-2014 from 19 medical centers within KPNC...

: 168 Background: Research inpalliative care has shown improvements in overall survival, quality of life, symptom management, care satisfaction and reductions in the cost of care. Therefore, the American Society of Clinical Oncology has recommended early concurrent palliative care in patients with advanced cancer and with high symptom burden. Despite this recommendation, integrating palliative services at our NCI-designated cancer center has been challenging. The aims of this project were to quantitatively describe the symptom burden of patients in ambulatory oncology clinics; facilitate the establishment of an effective referral system by detecting discrepancies between symptom burden and referral practices; and improve the integration of palliative care services by implementing the Edmonton Symptom Assessment System (ESAS) tool into 5 of our oncology clinics...
