In his April podcast for The Journal of Community and Supportive Oncology, Editor-in-Chief Dr David Henry discusses Original Reports on olanzapine compared with fosaprepitant for the prevention of concurrent chemotherapy radiotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting and an analysis of patient-reported outcomes in prostate cancer after treatment with abiraterone acetate. Also among the line-up of Original Reports are studies looking at the diagnostic work-up for the detection of malnutrition in hospitalized cancer patients and at the use of video-conferencing to deliver cancer genetic counseling to high-risk underserved individuals. The Case Reports include an unusual case of non-small-cell lung cancer presenting as spontaneous cardiac tamponade, another of severe eosinophilia associated with cholangiocarcinoma, and a third on acute benzodiazepine toxicity exacerbated by concomitant oral olanzapine. The Community Translations column features approvals of nivolumab approval for metastatic renal-cell carcinoma. Dr Henry also discusses a feature article on new therapies for multiple myeloma that are redefining the condition as a chronic disease.
