Mortality from ovarian cancer may be dramatically reduced with the implementation of attainable prevention strategies. The new understanding of the cells of origin and the molecular etiology of ovarian cancer warrants a strong recommendation to the public and health care providers. This document discusses potential prevention strategies, which include 1) oral contraceptive use, 2) tubal sterilization, 3) risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy in women at high hereditary risk of breast and ovarian cancer, 4) genetic counseling and testing for women with ovarian cancer and other high-risk families, and 5) salpingectomy after childbearing is complete (at the time of elective pelvic surgeries, at the time of hysterectomy, and as an alternative to tubal ligation)...

OBJECTIVES: Although the association between diabetes mellitus (DM) and pancreatic cancer is well described, temporal patterns of changes in fasting blood glucose (FBG) and body mass index (BMI) before pancreatic cancer diagnosis are not known. METHODS: We reviewed the medical records of pancreatic cancer cases seen at the Mayo Clinic from 15 January 1981 through to 9 July 2004 and selected those residing within 120 miles of Rochester, MN and who were seen at the Mayo Clinic within 30 days of the date of cancer diagnosis (index date)...

BACKGROUND: Microwave ablation has emerged as a promising treatment for liver malignancies, but there are scant long-term follow-up data. This study evaluated long-term outcomes, with a comparison of 915-MHz and 2.4-GHz ablation systems. METHODS: This was a retrospective review of patients with malignant liver tumours undergoing operative microwave ablation with or without liver resection between 2008 and 2013. Regional or systemic (neo)adjuvant therapy was given selectively...

BACKGROUND: Intravenous lidocaine infusion has been clearly demonstrated as effective for pain in randomized controlled trials, but the belief that cardiac monitoring is required for safe administration is a barrier to access in the palliative care setting. There are also multiple infusion protocols reported in the literature. We have been administering lidocaine infusions for severe cancer pain at the BC Cancer Agency (BCCA) since 2003, without electrocardiographic (ECG) monitoring. Our simple protocol is for 5 mg/kg to be infused over 1 hour, with the option for subsequent doses to be increased if necessary, up to a maximum of 10 mg/kg...
