NYU Langone Medical Center's tip sheet to the 44th annual meeting of ASCO
Date:5/16/2008

initial results from an early clinical trial investigating the safety and efficacy of a chemotherapy mixture for advanced melanoma. Chemotherapy-nave patients with metastatic melanoma received a therapy that combined oblimersen (OBL), abraxane (ABX) and temozolomide (TMZ). All 14 enrolled patients belonging to the first cohort have undergone at least one cycle of treatment. Thus far, one patient has had a confirmed complete response, five patients have exhibited a partial response (at least a 30 percent tumor reduction) lasting longer than two 56-day treatment cycles; three have stabilized for three cycles of chemotherapy; and five exhibited disease progression after 1 cycle. Both tumor and serologic biomarker assessments correlate with a positive clinical response and progressive disease.


How Women Perceive Their Risk of Getting Breast Cancer

Abstract # 1542: Breast cancer risk perception in a high-risk population
NYU Cancer Institutes Freya Schnabel M.D., professor of surgery and director of breast surgery at NYU Langone Medical Center

NYU School of Medicine researchers announce findings from a study that evaluated how women perceive their chances of getting breast cancer. The study was open to women regardless of risk and excluded those with a prior history of breast cancer. The study demonstrates that educational efforts significantly increased the accuracy of womens perception of breast cancer risk. Thirty-eight women filled out questionnaires before and after an educational seminar on breast cancer risk and provided information that included family history, reproductive history, and prior benign breast disease. The study identifies the need to increase womens awareness of their actual lifetime risk of developing breast cancer and highlights misperceptions about interventions that can reduce their risk.
