This article reports the current landscape of biomarkers in breast cancer, focusing on patients using comprehensive genomic profiling and PD‐L1 immunohistochemistry in addition to the previous standard of care diagnostics for hormone receptor and human epidermal receptor 2 identification. The relationship between different immunotherapy biomarkers in patients with triple‐negative breast cancer is examined.
COVID-19 has changed the way patients experience cancer care. Don Dizon and Anne Marie Mercurio discuss the impact of the pandemic on patients and their families.
In this month's blog post, Don Dizon discusses cooperative groups, social media, and conducting clinical trials during the COVID-19 pandemic with Wendy Lawton from SWOG.
Don Dizon learns about Ginny Mason's experiences as a breast cancer survivor, patient advocate, and nonprofit leader in this month's blog post.
Immunotherapy enhances a cancer patient’s immune system to fight an array of cancers. Immune checkpoint blockade can, however, induce inflammatory side effects known as immune-related Adverse Events (irAE). Because these rare but serious complications need to be quickly detected and properly treated, The Oncologist is devoting a new series designed to enhance the care of patients who may well benefit from therapeutic strategies that involve one or more these powerful immunotherapies.
Precision Medicine Clinic: Molecular Tumor Board is a case-based series designed to help clinicians optimize molecular testing for their patients. The Editors of The Oncologist encourage institutions to share their findings and experiences to help improve the precision of genomic oncology and fulfill its promise of improved outcomes for patients. This collection highlights a diverse set of patients exhibiting a range of tumor types and mutations.
Opioids form the cornerstone of pain management in cancer patients, but the crisis of opioid addiction has resulted in significant challenges facing patients, physicians, lawmakers, and communities across the nation. This series is focused to help clinicians manage the opioid crisis while ensuring adequate pain management for their patients.
