The Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care, a Harlem-based cancer prevention and treatment program, is expected to more closely align with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) in 2019 pending the approval of the New York State Department of Health and other state agencies. The filing deepens the longstanding partnership between MSK and the Ralph Lauren Center.
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) has announced that Kreg Koford has been named MSK's Senior Vice President of Supply Chain and Sustaining Care Services. Mr. Koford assumes his new role at MSK on July 9, 2018.
After more than two decades of providing outstanding cancer care to the people of New Jersey, Memorial Sloan Kettering announced today that its newest outpatient treatment center, in Bergen County, will welcome new patients in the coming weeks. In recognition of its debut, MSK’s leadership, joined by members of the community and local elected officials, gathered at the Montvale site to unveil MSK Bergen, a sleek, modern, technology-filled 110,000-plus-square-foot clinical program located on Summit Avenue, mere minutes from the Garden State Parkway.
The combination of taselisib and fulvestrant has shown to slow the growth of cancer in post-menopausal women with estrogen receptor (ER)-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER2) negative, PIK3CA-mutant, inoperable, locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer. Researchers from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) presented this data, from the SANDPIPER trial, in a press conference at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. This combination of a mutant-selective PI3K inhibitor and a selective estrogen receptor degrader halted the growth of advanced breast cancer for two months longer than hormone therapy alone and decreased the chance of cancer worsening by 30 percent.
Microsatellite instability (MSI) and DNA mismatch repair (MMR) deficiencies can predict Lynch syndrome (LS) across tumor types, according to researchers from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK), who presented this retrospective data analysis in a press conference at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. This finding suggests that LS is linked to more types of cancer than previously thought, prompting a call for germline testing for LS in all individuals with MSI-high (MSI-H)/mismatch repair deficient (MMR-D) tumors.
Researchers at Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) reported results, which were highlighted at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) press cast, that eight weeks of acupuncture or cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) decreased the severity of insomnia in cancer survivors. While both acupuncture and CBT-I resulted in clinically meaningful and durable effects among this group, CBT-I was more effective, especially among people with mild insomnia symptoms.
Researchers at Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) report that firefighters at the World Trade Center (WTC) scene in September 2001 were nearly twice as likely as the general population to have a multiple myeloma precursor condition called monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS). This new research was published online today in JAMA Oncology.
