Thyroid cancer is typically more aggressive in men than women and becomes increasingly lethal in those older than age 40 (NCCN, 2016). There are three primary subtypes: differentiated (including papillary, follicular, and Hürthle), medullary, and anaplastic. The differentiated subtype is the most c...

New Treatments and Targets for Axial Spondyloarthritis: A Personalized Approach to Improve Outcomes

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is an immune-mediated chronic inflammatory disease that typically affects the sacroiliac (SI) joints. Patients with AS suffer from debilitating pain and joint fusion that severely limits their mobility and functional capacity.

The goals of treatment are to minimize symptoms, mai...

Managing Psoriatic Arthritis to Improve Patient Outcomes

Many psoriatic arthritis (PsA) patients are not receiving medical treatment for their condition, even though they experience a poor quality of life due to the symptoms of PsA. Reasons for this undertreatment include physicians underestimating the systemic nature and psychosocial impact of PsA, a lack of physician knowledge of the current treatment goals and recommendations, and a lack of patient-centered approaches to manage PsA. A recent survey of rheumatologists revealed that only 23% of ...

Treatment Strategies in Chronic Leukemias and Introduction to CAR-T Therapy

Chronic lymphocytic (CLL) and chronic myelogenous (CML) leukemia are commonly diagnosed and treated by community oncologists. Whereas, in the past, these hematologic malignancies were considered incurable, new therapies have challenged that notion. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) annihilated the concept of CML as a poorly controlled disease, and most patients are now expected to live a normal life, with good quality of life. New testing procedures have suggested that some patients may be ...
