1. In this observational study involving women aged 70 to 84 years with a life expectancy of at least 10 years, continuing screening past the age of 75 offered no survival benefits versus stopping screening. 2. Participants in the “stop screening” group were, on average, more likely to be diagnosed...
1. Certain dietary supplements, including vitamin B12, iron and omega-3 fatty acids, may negatively impact disease-free survival and overall survival in breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) While the use of dietary supplements during cancer treatment is not uncommon, there is little data available to support current...
Association of prehospital plasma transfusion with survival in trauma patients with hemorrhagic shock when transport times are longer than 20 minutes: A post-hoc analysis of the PAMPer and COMBAT clinical trials 1.
