Mount Sinai presents treatment trends, vaccine research, prognosis data at ASCO
Date:5/17/2012

Mount Sinai School of Medicine researchers will present several landmark studies, including data on treatment trends in late-stage cancer, a promising multiple myeloma vaccine, and predictive models of soft tissue sarcomas, prostate and bladder cancer, at the 2012 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) meeting June 1-5, 2012 in Chicago.

Highlights of Mount Sinai research at ASCO:

  • Age, Race, Lower Income, and Lack of Insurance Are Associated with Non-Treatment of Patients With Late-Stage Cancer (Abstract #6065, Monday, June 4, 2012, 1:15 PM-5:15 PM CT, S Hall A2)

    Mount Sinai researchers found that 20 percent of 773,233 patients with Stage IV cancer from the National Cancer Database from 2000-2008 did not receive any anticancer treatment. Kidney and lung cancer had the highest rates of non-treatment at 25.5 and 24 percent, respectively, and prostate cancer had the lowest rate at 11.1 percent. Across all tumor types, older age, black race, lack of medical insurance, and lower income were associated with lack of treatment.

    "While we were aware that some patients with advanced cancer do not receive any anticancer treatment based on our own clinical experience, we were very surprised that the proportion of patients receiving no treatment was this high," said Matthew Galsky, MD, Assistant Professor, Hematology and Medical Oncology at Mount Sinai. "Of course, there are multiple reasons for lack of treatment, many of them appropriate. However, we identified some trends to suggest that lack of access to care may play a role in many cases, a finding that warrants concern, and has implications regarding healthcare policy."

  • Pilot Study of Protein-based Vaccine for Multiple Myeloma (Abstract #TPS8111, Monday, June 4, 2012, 1:15 PM-5:15 PM CT, S Hall A2)

    In a poster session at ASCO highlighting research works in progress, Hearn Jay Cho, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor of Hem
