David Henry's JCSO podcast, August 2016


 

In the August podcast for The Journal of Community and Supportive Oncology, Dr David Henry discusses recent approvals by the Food and Drug Administration – for uridine triacetate as an antidote for 5-fluorouracil overdose and toxicity, and for two therapies for multiple myeloma, the monoclonal antibody elotuzumab and the proteasome inhibitor ixazomib. Also in this month’s line-up are study findings on abnormal vaginal bleeding and contraception counseling in women who are undergoing chemotherapy; the effects of IV iron treatment with ferumoxytol on health-related quality of life of patients with iron deficiency anemia; and on mindfulness-based cancer recovery in survivors recovering from chemotherapy and radiation. Two Case Reports focus on gastrointestinal cancers, one in a patients with high-grade leiomyosarcoma of the transverse colon and who presented with bowel perforation, and another on 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D hypercalcemia and imatinib hepatotoxicity in a patient with GIST, and the New Therapies feature provides a detailed examination of recent advances in managing gynecologic cancers.
