  1. Psychological, social, and behavioral issues for young adults with cancer.

    Cancer 117(10 Suppl):2289 (2011) PMID 21523748

    Theories of human development suggest that, although all cancer patients experience a common set of life disruptions, they experience them differently, focus on different issues, and attach different levels of importance to different aspects of the experience depending on the time in life at whi...
  2. Chromosomal aberrations +1q21 and del(17p13) predict survival in patients with recurrent multiple myeloma treated with lenalidomide and dexamethasone.

    Cancer 117(10):2136 (2011) PMID 21523726

    In the era of novel agents such as lenalidomide and bortezomib, risk stratification by chromosomal abnormalities may enable a more rational selection of therapeutic approaches in patients with multiple myeloma (MM). The authors analyzed the prognostic value of deletion del(13q14), del(17p13), +1...
  3. Treatment of cancer in adolescents and young adults: is affordability a concern?

    Cancer 117(10 Suppl):2258 (2011) PMID 21523743

    Progress in the treatment of cancers in young people has resulted in an increasing success rate in curing the different forms of malignant diseases. The mission of the CPAC/C(17) Task Force on Adolescents and Young Adults (AYA) with cancer is to ensure prompt, equitable access to the best care; ...
  4. Screening for cancer in children, adolescents, and young adults: questions--and more questions.

    Cancer 117(10 Suppl):2275 (2011) PMID 21523746

    Cancer screening interventions offer the potential for both risk and benefit. Research related to screening and cancer in children or adolescents/young adults (AYA) can approach any of several questions. One question to be addressed is whether population-based screening tests can be developed th...
  5. The cancer is over, now what?: Understanding risk, changing outcomes.

    Cancer 117(10 Suppl):2250 (2011) PMID 21523742

    About 26,000 adolescents and young adults ages 15 to 29 years are diagnosed with invasive cancer each year. Although >80% will survive beyond 5 years from their cancer diagnosis, many will develop serious morbidity or die prematurely secondary to health problems in part related to their cancer t...
  6. Concomitant ABCG2 overexpression and FLT3-ITD mutation identify a subset of acute myeloid leukemia patients at high risk of relapse.

    Cancer 117(10):2156 (2011) PMID 21523728

    ABCG2 protein overexpression and FLT3 internal tandem duplication (ITD) correlate with higher relapse rate and shorter disease-free survival (DFS) in acute myeloid leukemia (AML), but no data are available on the possible effect of concomitant presence of these 2 factors. The authors analyzed th...
  7. Cancer genome variation in children, adolescents, and young adults.

    Cancer 117(10 Suppl):2262 (2011) PMID 21523744

    This mini-review describes the rapid changes in genome technologies that are leading to comprehensive views of genetic alterations in cancer, and presents high-level thoughts on ways to accelerate translation into clinical medicine. Issues that are more relevant to children, adolescents, and you...
  8. Phase 2 study of dasatinib in the treatment of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.

    Cancer 117(10):2112 (2011) PMID 21523723 PMCID PMC3117018

    Treatment options for patients with advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) are scarce. This phase 2 study was conducted to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and efficacy of dasatinib in this setting. Patients with recurrent and/or metastatic HNSCC after platinu...
  9. Critical issues in transition and survivorship for adolescents and young adults with cancers.

    Cancer 117(10 Suppl):2335 (2011) PMID 21523755

    The majority of children, adolescents, and young adults diagnosed with cancer will become long-term survivors with many potential years of life ahead of them. Their journey from health through diagnosis and treatment to survivorship involves multiple transitions. Transitional services that shoul...
  10. Oncofertility and preservation of reproductive capacity in children and young adults.

    Cancer 117(10 Suppl):2301 (2011) PMID 21523750

    With increasing numbers of survivors from cancer at a young age, the issue of fertility preservation has assumed greater importance. This review describes normal ovarian and testicular function and summarizes what is known about the effect of chemotherapy and radiotherapy on the gonads and uteru...
