Current Challenges and New Opportunities in Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant

STATEMENT OF NEED Hematopoietic stem cell transplant is a potentially curative therapy for patients with hematologic malignancies. There are 2 primary types of HSCT: autologous, where the cells are taken from the patient, and allogeneic, where the cells come from a matched sibling donor or an unrelated donor. Advances in HSCT include the introduction of reduced-intensity conditioning regimens that allow transplant in older patients and alternative graft sources that afford a donor for nearl...

Current Standards and Best Practices in the Management of Tumor Lysis Syndrome

STATEMENT OF NEED Tumor lysis syndrome (TLS) is a rare, potentially life-threatening oncologic emergency typically associated with chemotherapy-induced tumor cell death in which potassium, phosphate, and nucleic acids are released into the bloodstream. This release of intracellular materials results in severe metabolic abnormalities such as hyperuricemia and hyperphosphatemia, which may cause acute renal injury, and hypokalemia and hypocalcemia, which may cause seizures, neuromuscular sympt...

New Thinking, New Strategies in the Treatment of Advanced NSCLC Without Driver Mutations

STATEMENT OF NEED Of the estimated 228,150 patients diagnosed with lung cancer in the United States each year, 84% have non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Most patients with NSCLC present with advanced disease, which is highly resistant to chemotherapy. The 5-year survival rates remain dismal (18%). Recently, the use of tumor histology in determining optimal treatment strategies and relevant molecular biomarkers to further refine selection of novel therapies has improved outcomes for some ...

Rare Disease Clinical Trials

When caring for an individual with a rare disease who has exhausted standard treatments or for whom there are no treatments available, exploration of clinical trials, and possibly expanded access programs, may be warranted. However, many care team members and their patients may not know where to begin with these options. In addition, a number of barriers to participation may exist for both the patient and the care team. Clinicians caring for people with rare diseases, therefore, would benefit ...

Enhancing Treatment Experiences in Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer: The Nurse's View

STATEMENT OF NEED Prostate cancer is the most common tumor type affecting men in the United States, with an estimated 174,650 new cases reported each year. Typically, androgen deprivation therapy is administered for progressive disease. However, castration resistance or unresponsiveness to androgen deprivation therapy or to antiandrogens frequently develops over time. The transition from castration-sensitive to castration-resistant disease has yet to be understood and represents a significa...

New Thinking, New Strategies in Advanced Urothelial Carcinoma

STATEMENT OF NEED Bladder cancer is the sixth most common malignancy among adults in the United States. Approximately 80,470 new cases are diagnosed annually and 17,670 people die of the disease. More than 90% of patients with bladder cancer have the urothelial carcinoma subtype, which has a high rate of recurrence whether it is low or high grade. Approximately half of all bladder cancers are diagnosed in situ, for which the 5-year relative survival rate is 95%. For tumors diagnosed as a lo...

Optimizing Personalized Care Plans for Patients With Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

STATEMENT OF NEED An estimated 228,150 new cases of lung cancer are reported in the United States annually, and 142,670 people die of the disease. The major subtypes are non-­small cell (84%) and small cell (13%). Most patients with lung cancer are diagnosed at a locally advanced or metastatic stage, making systemic therapy the cornerstone of management. Although 70% of patients receiving first-line classical doublet chemotherapy demonstrate clinical benefit, most develop progressive disea...

Nursing Management of Myelofibrosis: Controlling Symptoms and Optimizing Patient Quality of Life

STATEMENT OF NEED Myeloproliferative neoplasms are a heterogeneous group of hematopoietic disorders that includes myelofibrosis, polycythemia vera (PV), and essential thrombocythemia (ET). These malignancies affect approximately 13,000, 134,000, and 148,000 individuals in the United States, respectively. As symptoms do not typically manifest in early stages, patients with MPNs often present with advanced disease. The presence of comorbidities precludes most from potentially curative allogen...

Multiple Myeloma: Enhancing Treatment Tolerability, Adherence, and Patient-Centered Care

STATEMENT OF NEED Multiple myeloma (MM) is a B-cell neoplasm characterized by aberrant expansion of plasma cells within the bone marrow and extramedullary sites (eg, cortical bone). Approximately 32,270 new cases of MM are diagnosed in the United States annually and 12,830 people die of the disease. Although the tumor cells remain primarily within the bone marrow, they can cause a number of complications, including localized bone destruction, anemia, decreased immunity to infection, and kid...

Survival in MDS ranges from a median of 5.3 years in lower-risk patients to as little as 0.8 years in higher-risk patients. Mortality is usually a result of infection, hemorrhage, and/or iron overload secondary to red blood cell transfusion...

Exploring Novel Treatment Strategies for Metastatic Colorectal Cancer

STATEMENT OF NEED Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third leading cause of cancer death among men and women in the United States. An estimated 145,600 new cases are diagnosed annually and 51,020 people die of the disease. When detected and treated early at a localized stage, the 5-year survival rate is 90%. However, because CRC initially exhibits no symptoms and the use of routine screening is suboptimal, most patients are diagnosed at later stages. Approximately 21% of patients present with m...
