Up to 50 percent of women with advanced-stage ovarian cancer could be cured with 1 treatment model
Up to half of women with advanced-stage ovarian cancer might be cured, compared to the current 20 per cent survival rate, argues Dr. Steven Narod, senior scientist at Women's College Research Institute, who calls for a new standard of treatment for women with late-stage ovarian cancer. View News Article (2016-01-21)


Cardiac arrests in high-rise buildings: Low survival rates above 3rd floor
Residents of high-rise buildings had better survival rates from cardiac arrests if they lived on the first few floors, and survival was negligible for people living above the 16th floor, according to a study published in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal) View News Article (2016-01-19)

Capecitabine improved outcomes for breast cancer patients with disease after presurgery chemo
Treatment with the chemotherapy agent capecitabine increased disease-free survival for women with HER2-negative breast cancer that was not eliminated by presurgery chemotherapy, according to results from the phase III CREATE-X clinical trial presented at the 2015 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, held Dec. 8-12. View News Article (2015-12-09)


Study shows abiraterone acetate is useful even in most aggressive prostate cancers

Depressed head and neck cancer patients three-and-one-half times less likely to survive, have higher recurrence risk
Depression is a significant predictor of five-year survival and recurrence in head and neck cancer patients, according to a new study from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. These findings, published in Pyschosomatic Medicine, represent one of the largest reported impacts of depression on cancer survival. View News Article (2015-12-04)


Lower survival rates in women with breast cancer diagnosed with depression
Women with breast cancer who subsequently had a recorded diagnosis of depression had a 45% higher risk of death from all causes, according to a study led by King's College London. The researchers suggest this finding could help to target and support those women most at risk of depression. View News Article (2015-12-01)
