1. Among patients with high-risk prostate cancer receiving guideline-concordant multimodal therapy, prostate cancer-specific mortality outcomes were equivalent among radical prostatectomy, external beam radiotherapy alone, and external beam radiotherapy plus brachytherapy. 2. Novel treatment and research strategies should be focused on minimizing distant metastasis in patients with high-risk prostate cancer, particularly...
1. 3-year event-free survival rates were significantly greater in the 18F-fluciclovine-PET group compared to conventional imaging. 2. Adverse reactions and toxicity levels were similar between the two groups. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: In patients with prostate cancer, prostatectomies are often followed with adjuvant or salvage radiotherapy. Postprostatectomy radiotherapy has...
1. Targeted intraoperative radiotherapy for breast cancer has comparable long-term cancer-related outcomes as whole breast post-operative radiotherapy, and lower mortality from other causes. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers worldwide, with 2 million diagnoses and 626 000 deaths in 2018 alone. The treatment...

1.  Chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy may provoke significant declines in CD4 counts in HIV patients as compared to other treatments, which in turn are associated with increased mortality. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Treating cancer in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection can be problematic due to the immunosuppressive effects of certain...
