Breast Conserving Surgery-Treatment Decisions-Breast Cancer Care-Treatment Choice

Autonomy and reason: treatment choice in breast cancer

AbstractThe practice of offering choice to those women with breast cancer for whom either breast conserving surgery or mastectomy would be equally beneficial has come to be seen as an important aspect of medical care. As well as improving satisfaction with treatment, this is seen as satisfying the ethical principle of respect for autonomy. A number of studies, however, show that women are not always comfortable with such choice, preferring to leave treatment decisions to their surgeons. A question then arises as to the extent that these women can be seen as autonomous or as exercising autonomy. This paper argues, however, that the understanding of autonomy which is applied in current approaches to breast cancer care does not adequately support the exercise of autonomy, and that the clinic...MedWorm Sponsor Message: Have a look at The Breast Cancer Daily, the new breast cancer portal with all the latest breast cancer news and research powered by MedWorm, updated daily. read more..

Effects Of Exercise-Beneficial Effects-Systematic Review-Exercise Programs-Interventions

Exercise interventions on health-related quality of life for people with cancer during active treatment.

CONCLUSIONS: This systematic review indicates that exercise may have beneficial effects at varying follow-up periods on HRQoL and certain HRQoL domains including physical functioning, role function, social functioning, and fatigue. Positive effects of exercise interventions are more pronounced with moderate- or vigorous-intensity versus mild-intensity exercise programs. The positive results must be interpreted cautiously because of the heterogeneity of exercise programs tested and measures used to assess HRQoL and HRQoL domains, and the risk of bias in many trials. Further research is required to investigate how to sustain positive effects of exercise over time and to determine essential attributes of exercise (mode, intensity, frequency, duration, timing) by cancer type and cancer treatme... read more..

Insulin Receptor Substrate 1 Expression-Growth Factor Receptors-Cancer Pathogenesis

Insulin receptor substrate 1 expression enhances the sensitivity of 32D cells to chemotherapy-induced cell death.

Authors: Porter HA, Carey GB, Keegan AD Abstract The adapters IRS1 and IRS2 link growth factor receptors to downstream signaling pathways that regulate proliferation and survival. Both suppress factor-withdrawal-induced apoptosis and have been implicated in cancer progression. However, recent studies suggest IRS1 and IRS2 mediate differential functions in cancer pathogenesis. IRS1 promoted breast cancer proliferation, while IRS2 promoted metastasis. The role of IRS1 and IRS2 in controlling cell responses to chemotherapy is unknown. To determine the role of IRS1 and IRS2 in the sensitivity of cells to chemotherapy, we treated 32D cells lacking or expressing IRS proteins with various concentrations of chemotherapeutic agents. We found that expression of IRS1, in contrast to IRS2, enh...MedWorm Sponsor Message: Have a look at The Breast Cancer Daily, the new breast cancer portal with all the latest breast cancer news and research powered by MedWorm, updated daily. read more..

Environmental Measurements-Polychlorinated Biphenyls-Local Authorities-Health Effects

Health effects and exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and metals in a contaminated community.

Authors: Helmfrid I, Berglund M, Löfman O, Wingren G Abstract Environmental measurements carried out by local authorities during the 1970s, 80s and 90s in an area contaminated by hundreds of years of industrial activities have revealed high levels of zinc (Zn), copper (Cu), lead (Pb) and cadmium (Cd) in soil, vegetables, root crops, berries and mushrooms. In 1972, a large quantity of oil contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) was accidentally spilled into the river running through the village. To investigate the possible health effects of exposure from local sources, all cancer diagnoses, registered in 1960-2003 for individuals living in the study area, were collected from the regional cancer register of southeast Sweden.

Physical Activity Levels-Physical Inactivity-Ecological Study-Global Impact

Lack of exercise as 'deadly' as smoking

ConclusionThis ecological study estimated the global impact of physical inactivity and models the theoretical lives saved if physical inactivity levels were to be reduced across the globe.This study serves to highlight the large and wide-ranging impact of physical inactivity on global disease levels and death. However the following study limitations should be considered: Physical activity was based on self-reported physical activity levels, which can be misleading. The authors of the research say that this tends to underestimate differences between active and inactive people and so would underestimate the impact of physical inactivity globally. The researchers therefore concluded that their estimates ‘are likely to be very conservative’. Using a more objective measure of physical ... read more..
