"Circulating tumor cells in newly diagnosed inflammatory breast cancer" - James M.Reuben, Department of Hematopathology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, USA - Michal Mego,Comenius University and National Cancer Institute, Bratislava, Slovak Republic - "Patients with stage III IBC had lower CTCs compared to metastatic IBC patients. Our study shows that patients with =1 CTC and =5 CTC had significantly inferior progression-free and overall survival compared to patients with <1 CTC and <5 CTC and suggests a strong prognostic value of CTCs in patients with newly diagnosed IBC"
"Radiotherapy for women with a DCIS" - Fredrik Warnberg, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden. "Today in Sweden, according to our national guidelines we do not give radiotherapy to women with a DCIS, grade 1 or 2, smaller than 15mm. We know that we can reduce the number of local recurrences even in this group but the absolute benefit is very low and we think the disadvantage is larger than the gain"
"Circadian disruption on breast cancer risk in women" - Sara Wagner Robb, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, College of Public Health, University of Georgia, Athens, GA, USA - "In our comprehensive analysis of 28 observational studies, we found that circadian disruption, including shift work, exposure to light at night, and employment as a flight attendant, was associated with an increased risk of breast cancer in women. Findings from this study should prompt future research to confirm the causal relationship between circadian disruption and breast cancer"
