Department of Urology/Institute of Urology, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu 610041, China. Electronic address:

The purpose of this umbrella review was to evaluate the quality of evidence, validity and biases of the associations between red and processed meat consumption and multiple cancer outcomes according to existing systematic reviews and meta-analyses. The umbrella review identified 72 meta-analyses with 20 unique outcomes for red meat and 19 unique outcomes for processed meat. Red meat consumption was associated with increased risk of overall cancer mortality, non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), bladder, breast, colorectal, endometrial, esophageal, gastric, lung and nasopharyngeal cancer.

Comparisons of postoperative outcomes after breast cancer surgery in patients with and without renal replacement therapy: a matched-pair cohort study using a Japanese nationwide inpatient database.

Breast Cancer 2021 Apr 10. Epub 2021 Apr 10.

Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Health Economics, School of Public Health, The University of Tokyo, 7-3-1 Hongo, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, 113-8655, Japan.

Background: Although patients receiving renal replacement therapy (RRT) have more comorbidities and higher mortality and morbidity risks than the general population, surgery during breast cancer treatment is crucial because of limitations in anticancer agents for patients with renal insufficiency. We aimed to compare the short-term postoperative outcomes between patients with and without RRT.

Methods: Patients who underwent surgery for stages 0-III breast cancer between July 2010 and March 2017 were retrospectively identified in a Japanese nationwide inpatient database and divided into those with RRT (RRT group, n = 1547) and those without RRT (control group, n = 364,047). Read More

Predictors of the Provision of Mother's Milk Feedings in Newborns Admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Breastfeed Med 2021 Apr 8. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

Division of Neonatology and Pulmonary Biology, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.

Breast milk reduces morbidity and mortality in infants admitted to neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). We determined predictors of procuring mother's own milk (MOM) among NICU-admitted newborn-mother dyads: (1) initiation of any milk expression; (2) initiation of milk expression within 6 hours of birth; (3) MOM as the first enteral feeding; (4) colostrum for oral care within 36 hours of birth if not yet orally fed; and (5) provision of MOM at 21 days of life or discharge, whichever occurred first. We performed a retrospective chart review of NICU-admitted newborn-mother dyads at an urban medical center from June 1, 2018-May 31, 2019. Read More

The Impact of Premastectomy Versus Postmastectomy Radiation Therapy on Outcomes in Prepectoral Implant-Based Breast Reconstruction.

Ann Plast Surg 2021 Mar 18. Epub 2021 Mar 18.

From the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group, Garden City, NY Temple University School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA Keck School of Medicine of University of Southern California, Los Angeles Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA Yale New Haven Health/Bridgeport Hospital, Bridgeport, CT.

Breast 2021 Mar 25;57:118-122. Epub 2021 Mar 25.

Center of Expertise on Gender Dysphoria, Amsterdam UMC, VU University Medical Center, De Boelelaan 1117, 1081 HV, Amsterdam, the Netherlands; Department of Endocrinology, Amsterdam UMC, VU University Medical Center, De Boelelaan 1117, 1081 HV, Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Electronic address:

No literature is available on the benign versus malignant breast lesion ratio in trans women (male sex assigned at birth, female gender identity).

The beneficial role of Asian-based RecurIndex test in the prognostic prediction in Chinese male breast cancer patients.

Sci Rep 2021 Apr 7;11(1):7657. Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Breast Center, The Fourth Hospital of Hebei Medical University, No.12 Jiankang Road, Shijiazhuang, 050011, Hebei, China.

RecurIndex, a multigene profiling assay, can predict the risk of local recurrence and distant metastasis in female breast cancer (FBC), but its role in male breast cancer (MBC) remains unclear. In this study, the clinicopathological data of 43 consecutive MBC patients undergoing surgeries between 2009 and 2018 were retrospectively analysed. Their paraffin-embedded tissue sections were examined by RecurIndex test which comprised 2 models: recurrence index for local recurrence (RI-LR) and recurrence index for distant recurrence (RI-DR).

Predicting cell invasion in breast tumor microenvironment from radiological imaging phenotypes.

BMC Cancer 2021 Apr 7;21(1):370. Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Department of Radiology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, 4200 Fifth Ave, Pittsburgh, PA, 15260, USA.

Background: The abundance of immune and stromal cells in the tumor microenvironment (TME) is informative of levels of inflammation, angiogenesis, and desmoplasia. Radiomics, an approach of extracting quantitative features from radiological imaging to characterize diseases, have been shown to predict molecular classification, cancer recurrence risk, and many other disease outcomes. However, the ability of radiomics methods to predict the abundance of various cell types in the TME remains unclear. Read More
