A mass spectrometry technique used for analysis of nonvolatile compounds such as proteins and macromolecules. The technique involves preparing electrically charged droplets from analyte molecules dissolved in solvent. The electrically charged droplets enter a vacuum chamber where the solvent is evaporated. Evaporation of solvent reduces the droplet size, thereby increasing the coulombic repulsion within the droplet. As the charged droplets get smaller, the excess charge within them causes them to disintegrate and release analyte molecules. The volatilized analyte molecules are then analyzed by mass spectrometry.
A mass spectrometry technique using two (MS/MS) or more mass analyzers. With two in tandem, the precursor ions are mass-selected by a first mass analyzer, and focused into a collision region where they are then fragmented into product ions which are then characterized by a second mass analyzer. A variety of techniques are used to separate the compounds, ionize them, and introduce them to the first mass analyzer. For example, for in GC-MS/MS, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY is involved in separating relatively small compounds by GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY prior to injecting them into an ionization chamber for the mass selection.
A mass spectrometric technique that is used for the analysis of large biomolecules. Analyte molecules are embedded in an excess matrix of small organic molecules that show a high resonant absorption at the laser wavelength used. The matrix absorbs the laser energy, thus inducing a soft disintegration of the sample-matrix mixture into free (gas phase) matrix and analyte molecules and molecular ions. In general, only molecular ions of the analyte molecules are produced, and almost no fragmentation occurs. This makes the method well suited for molecular weight determinations and mixture analysis.

Screening for cervical cancer: a review of women's attitudes, knowledge, and behaviour. (1/10392)

The United Kingdom (UK) cervical screening programme has been successful in securing participation of a high proportion of targeted women, and has seen a fall in mortality rates of those suffering from cervical cancer. There remains, however, a significant proportion of unscreened women and, of women in whom an abnormality is detected, many will not attend for colposcopy. The present work reviews the psychological consequences of receiving an abnormal cervical smear result and of secondary screening and treatment, and examines reasons for women's non-participation in the screening programme. Psychological theories of screening behavior are used to elucidate women's reactions and to suggest methods of increasing participation, of improving the quality of the service, and of reducing women's anxiety. A literature search identified studies that examine factors influencing women's participation in the screening programme, their psychological reaction to the receipt of an abnormal cervical smear result, and experiences of colposcopy. Reasons for non-participation include administrative failures, unavailability of a female screener, inconvenient clinic times, lack of awareness of the test's indications and benefits, considering oneself not to be at risk of developing cervical cancer, and fear of embarrassment, pain, or the detection of cancer. The receipt of an abnormal result and referral for colposcopy cause high levels of distress owing to limited understanding of the meaning of the smear test; many women believe the test aims to detect existing cervical cancer. The quality of the cervical screening service can be enhanced by the provision of additional information, by improved quality of communication, and by consideration of women's health beliefs. This may result in increased participation in, and satisfaction with, the service.  (+info)

The PRIME study: classical risk factors do not explain the severalfold differences in risk of coronary heart disease between France and Northern Ireland. Prospective Epidemiological Study of Myocardial Infarction. (2/10392)

We are studying the contribution of risk and genetic factors, and their interaction, to the development of ischaemic heart disease (IHD) and other cardiovascular endpoints. The study is prospective, based in three centres in the south, east and north of France and in Northern Ireland. A total of 10,592 men aged 50-59 years were recruited from 1991 to 1993, and examined for evidence of IHD at baseline. Subjects are followed annually by questionnaire. Clinical information is validated from hospital and GP records. Demographic characteristics were similar in all four centres. Body mass index was highest in Strasbourg (mean 27.4 kg/m2 vs. 26.3 kg/m2 in Toulouse and Belfast), but total cholesterol, triglyceride and fibrinogen were highest in Belfast. In Belfast, 6.1% reported having had a coronary angiogram, compared to 3.0% in Toulouse. Conversely, 13.8% in Toulouse reported taking lipid-lowering drugs vs. 1.6% in Belfast. As predicted, a history of myocardial infarction (MI) was highest in Belfast (6.1%) and lowest in Toulouse (1.2%). Some 7.1% of Belfast men reported a medical diagnosis of angina vs. 1.5% in Toulouse. Subjects showing evidence of pre-existing IHD will be studied prospectively but treated in the analysis as an additional variable. These results provide a measure of reassurance that these cohorts are representative of the communities from which they are drawn and provide a reliable baseline for prospective evaluation and cross-sectional comparisons. The levels of the classical risk factors found in this study, particularly when examined in combination, as multiple logistic functions based on previous British studies, are very similar between centres and cannot explain the large differences in the incidence of IHD which exist. Additional risk factors may help explain, at least in part, the major differences in incidence of IHD between these study centres.  (+info)

Coeliac disease detected by screening is not silent--simply unrecognized. (3/10392)

Coeliac disease (CD) is associated with a wide spectrum of clinical presentation and may be overlooked as a diagnosis. There is some evidence that untreated CD is associated with a doubling of mortality, largely due to an increase in the incidence of malignancy and small intestinal lymphoma, which is decreased by a strict gluten-free diet. We studied the clinical features of screening-detected coeliacs compared to age- and sex-matched controls as a 3-year follow-up to a population screening survey, and followed-up subjects who had had CD-associated serology 11 years previously to determine whether they have CD or an increased mortality rate compared to the general population. Samples of the general population (MONICA 1991 and 1983) were screened for CD-associated serology and followed-up after 3 and 11 years, respectively, and assessed by a clinical questionnaire, screening blood tests and jejunal biopsy. Mortality rates for 'all deaths' and 'cancer deaths' were compared in subjects with positive serology in 1983 with reference to the general population. Thirteen coeliacs were diagnosed by villous atrophy following screening, compared to two patients with clinically detected CD, giving a prevalence of 1:122. Clinical features or laboratory parameters were not indicative of CD compared to controls. Subjects with positive serology followed up after 11 years did not have an excess mortality for either cancer deaths or all causes of death. Screening-detected CD is rarely silent and may be associated with significant symptoms and morbidity. In this limited study with small numbers, there does not appear to be an increased mortality from screening-detected CD, although the follow-up may be too short to detect any difference.  (+info)

Faecal occult blood screening and reduction of colorectal cancer mortality: a case-control study. (4/10392)

To estimate the efficacy of screening on colorectal cancer mortality, a population-based case-control study was conducted in well-defined areas of Burgundy (France). Screening by faecal occult blood test prior to diagnosis in cases born between 1914 and 1943 and who died of colorectal cancer diagnosed in 1988-94 was compared with screening in controls matched with the case for age, sex and place of residence. Cases were less likely to have been screened than controls, with an odds ratio (OR) of 0.67 [95% confidence interval (CI) 0.48-0.94]. The negative overall association did not differ by gender or by anatomical location. The odds ratio of death from colorectal cancer was 0.64 (95% CI 0.46-0.91) for those screened within 3 years of case diagnosis compared with those not screened. It was 1.14 (95% CI 0.50-2.63) for those screened more than 3 years before case diagnosis. There was a negative association between the risk of death from colorectal cancer and the number of participations in the screening campaigns. The inverse association between screening for faecal occult blood and fatal colorectal cancer suggests that screening can reduce colorectal cancer mortality. This report further supports recommendations for population-based mass screening with faecal occult blood test.  (+info)

The identification of agreed criteria for referral following the dental inspection of children in the school setting. (5/10392)

AIM: To clarify the function of the school based dental inspection. OBJECTIVE: For representatives of the Community Dental Service, General Dental Service and Hospital Dental Service to identify an agreed set of criteria for the referral of children following school dental inspection. DESIGN: Qualitative research methodology used to establish a consensus for the inclusion of referral criteria following dental screening. SETTING: Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, England. MATERIALS: A Delphi technique was used to establish a consensus amongst the study participants on the inclusion of nine possible criteria for referral following dental screening. All participants scored each criterion in the range 1-9, with a score of 1 indicating that referral of individuals with the condition should definitely not take place, and a score of 9 indicating referral should definitely take place. Referral criteria were accepted only if they achieved a group median score of 7 or more, with an interquartile range of three scale points, with the lower value being no less than 7. RESULTS: Four of the nine possible criteria met the agreed group standard for inclusion: 'Sepsis', 'Caries in the secondary dentition', 'Overjet > 10 mm', and 'Registered & caries in the permanent dentition'. CONCLUSION: It is possible to agree clear criteria for the referral of children following the school dental inspection.  (+info)

Special medical examination program reform proposal in Korea. (6/10392)

We are at a time when reform in the special medical examination program in keeping with the changing times is desperately needed because the common perception of workers, employers, and medical examination facilities is "special medical examination is merely ritualistic and unproductive." Therefore, we have tried to set forth the basic structure for reforming the special medical examination program by taking a close look at the management status of the current program and analyzing its problems. The specifics of the special medical examination program reform proposal consist of three parts such as the types, health evaluation based on occupational medicine, and the interval, subject selection, items and procedure. Pre-placement medical examination and non-periodic medical examinations-as-necessary are introduced newly. Health evaluation based on occupational medicine consists of classification of health status, evaluation of work suitability, and post-examination measure. Details regarding the medical examination interval, subject selection, items and procedure were changed.  (+info)

Screening Mammography Program of British Columbia: pattern of use and health care system costs. (7/10392)

BACKGROUND: The use of mammography for screening asymptomatic women has increased dramatically in the past decade. This report describes the changes that have occurred in the use of bilateral mammography in British Columbia since the provincial breast cancer screening program began in 1988. METHODS: Using province-wide databases from both the breast cancer screening program and the provincial health insurance plan in BC, the authors determined the number and costs of bilateral mammography services for women aged 40 years or older between Apr. 1, 1986, and Mar. 31, 1997. Unilateral mammography was excluded because it is used for investigating symptomatic disease and screening abnormalities, and for follow-up of women who have undergone mastectomy for cancer. RESULTS: As the provincial breast cancer screening program expanded from 1 site in 1988 to 23 in 1997, it provided an increasing proportion of the bilateral mammographic examinations carried out each year in BC. In fiscal year 1996/97, 65% of bilateral mammographic examinations were performed through the screening program. The cost per examination within the screening program dropped as volume increased. Thirty percent more bilateral mammography examinations were done in 1996/97 than in 1991/92, but health care system expenditures for these services increased by only 4% during the same period. In calendar year 1996, 21% of new breast cancers were diagnosed as a result of a screening program visit. INTERPRETATION: Substantial increases in health care expenditures have been avoided by shifting bilateral mammography services to the provincial screening program, which has a lower cost per screening visit.  (+info)

Pap screening clinics with native women in Skidegate, Haida Gwaii. Need for innovation. (8/10392)

PROBLEM ADDRESSED: First Nations women in British Columbia, especially elders, are underscreened for cancer of the cervix compared with the general population and are much more likely to die of the disease than other women. OBJECTIVE OF PROGRAM: To develop a pilot program, in consultation with community representatives, to address the Pap screening needs of First Nations women 40 years and older on a rural reserve. MAIN COMPONENTS OF PROGRAM: Identification of key links to the population; consultation with the community to design an outreach process; identification of underscreened women; implementation of community Pap screening clinics; evaluation of the pilot program. CONCLUSIONS: We developed a Pap screening outreach program that marked a departure from the usual screening approach in the community. First Nations community health representatives were key links for the process that involved family physicians and office staff at a local clinic on a rural reserve. Participation rate for the pilot program was 48%, resulting in an increase of 15% over the previously recorded screening rate for this population. More screening clinics of this type and evaluation for sustainability are proposed.  (+info)

The United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) has recently issued recommendations for the screening of colorectal cancer. These recommendations were published in the Archives of Internal Medicine.. Recommendations for the screening of colorectal cancer include screening initiation at the age of 50 years for all individuals, or younger for those at a high risk for developing the disease. ?Because colorectal cancer is a type of cancer that is highly curable in early stages, universal screening of individuals remains of utmost importance in order to improve overall outcomes for the disease.. The USPSTF is a panel of general care experts who provide recommendations for treatment and prevention of certain diseases. For the first time, the USPSTF has recommended changes to screening for colorectal cancer as well as additions to the historic recommendations.. ...

Among the 517 patients with lung cancer who were admitted to our hospital over a 10-year period up to December 2001, 83 (16.1%) were detected by mass-screening. We reviewed medical records of the 83 patients and determined the intervals from the mass-screening to the pathological diagnosis with clinical staging. Time from the mass-screening to the date of hospital visit was ...
This study reports the outcome of active surveillance in men with PSA screening-detected prostate cancer (PC), and PSA doubling time (PSADT) was evaluated as a predictor of selecting patients to active treatment or surveillance. On December 31, 1994, 10,000 men were randomized to biennial PSA testing. Through to December 2004, a total of 660 men were diagnosed with PC, of whom 270 managed with initial surveillance. Of these 270 patients, 104 (39%) received active treatment during follow-up, 70 radical prostatectomy, 24 radiation and 10 endocrine treatment. Those who received active treatment during follow-up (mean 63 months) were significantly younger (62.6 vs. 65.5 years, p | 0.0001) and had a shorter PSADT (3.7 vs. 12 years, p | 0.0001). PSA relapse was observed in 9 of 70 patients who received RRP during a mean follow-up of 37 months. Seven of these nine PSA relapses were in the patients with preoperative PSADT | 2 years. None of the 37 operated patients with a PSADT | 4 years had a PSA relapse. In a

Lung cancer is usually asymptomatic until it has reached an advanced stage, when the treatment outcome is poor. Five-year survival for all stages is 11-14% for Stage I it is 42-47%.1 Under optimal conditions, survival can be higher.10,12,13 Early detection of Stage I cases through screening might be expected to improve survival, but the small amount of available evidence does not show that screening reduces lung cancer mortality.. The efficacy of chest radiographic screening for lung cancer was first investigated in the 1960s. A controlled prospective study involving over 55,000 persons found that those receiving chest x-rays every 6 months had a larger proportion of resectable tumors, but mortality for lung cancer remained the same when compared with controls who received examinations only at the beginning and end of the trial.14 Similar findings were reported in the Philadelphia Pulmonary Neoplasm Research Project15 and, more recently, in a case-control study.16 In addition, the results of one ...

Background Celiac disease (CD) is a chronic disorder in genetically predisposed individuals in which damage to the small intestine is caused by eating foods containing gluten. The prevalence has been shown to vary from around 1-3%, but most people with CD are undiagnosed. An option for finding those with unrecognized CD would include screening the general population, i.e., mass screening. However, screening identifies a pre-disease or disease condition in people who are presumed healthy and have not sought help. Therefore, the impacts of the screening process and being diagnosed through screening should be explored before such a public health intervention is considered. A population-based CD screening study involving 12-year-olds was undertaken in Sweden and provided an opportunity to explore these issues related to CD screening.. Aims To make inferences about the potential impacts mass screening for CD can have on participants by exploring experiences and outcomes for participants involved in ...
See related article, pp 1142-1147. It has been clear for decades that elevated blood pressure in adults is strongly associated with adverse cardiovascular disease outcomes,1 including myocardial infarction, cerebrovascular disease, and congestive heart failure. It has been harder to establish a direct association between elevated blood pressure in children and adolescents and cardiovascular disease in adulthood. This has, in part, led the United States Preventive Services Task Force to report an I statement,2 indicating that there is insufficient evidence for or against blood pressure screening in pediatric patients. Such direct evidence would be valuable to have in hand; however, because these relationships develop longitudinally, this evidence is difficult, if not impossible, to obtain. To evaluate the direct link between childhood risk factors such as hypertension and adult cardiovascular outcomes requires studies with a high level of follow-up that take place over many decades.. Despite this ...

Several organizations including the FDA, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the United State Preventive Services Taskforce have suggested that direct access testing can be used effectively in a few screening scenarios (12). These tests include lipid panels, glucose, HIV testing, and Hemoglobin A1c. The CDC does emphasize that these tests are not to be used for diagnostic purposes and to be used in conjunction with a medical provider.. DAT has been increasingly used for the detection of STD pathogens. DATs developed utilizing non-invasive, easy-to-collect specimens have been successful in detection of HIV as well as other STD pathogens. HIV self-test kits have the potential to increase testing rates around the globe and thereby lead to reductions in HIV morbidity and mortality (13). Several studies assessed the feasibility and acceptability among women of self-collecting cervicovaginal samples at home, returning samples by mail for HPV testing, and receiving HPV results by ...

We performed a pilot RCT to learn how best to use HE4 in a staged multimodal screening protocol, to inform the design of future screening protocols. To assess safety, we chose trial size to yield primary outcome estimation (for both arms combined) of a 95% CI for surgical PPV; we had 80% power to rule out inclusion of PPV of 10% or lower. We observed fewer surgeries and malignancies than expected, and observed an overall surgical PPV of 33%, with 95% CI of 4%-78%. The trial was not large enough to test the difference in PPV between arms, and no statistically significant difference was seen. Both screening protocols were found to be feasible and acceptable to women and physicians; neither resulted in excessive imaging, surgical consults, or surgical procedures.. Positive screens were more frequent when HE4 was included in the primary screen. Consistent with retrospective analysis of Prostate, Lung, Colorectal, and Ovary Cancer Screening Trial (PLCO) data (21), these data suggest that HE4 may be ...

Interval cancers are tumors arising after a negative screening episode and before the next screening invitation. They can be classified into true interval cancers, false-negatives, minimal-sign cancers, and occult tumors based on mammographic findings in screening and diagnostic mammograms. This study aimed to describe tumor-related characteristics and the association of breast density and tumor phenotype within four interval cancer categories. We included 2,245 invasive tumors (1,297 screening-detected and 948 interval cancers) diagnosed from 2000 to 2009 among 645,764 women aged 45 to 69 who underwent biennial screening in Spain. Interval cancers were classified by a semi-informed retrospective review into true interval cancers (n = 455), false-negatives (n = 224), minimal-sign (n = 166), and occult tumors (n = 103). Breast density was evaluated using Boyds scale and was conflated into: |25%; 25 to 50%; 50 to 75%; |75%. Tumor-related information was obtained from cancer registries and clinical
Racial and ethnic minorities, low-income persons, and those who are uninsured or insured by Medicaid are more likely to have poor cancer outcomes. This may be due, in part, to lower use of screening tests. The Cancer Screening Office Systems program--a low-cost, non-computerized program--increased the use of screening tests in primary care practices serving these groups. The program focused on 3 cancer-screening tests: mammograms, Pap smears, and fecal occult blood tests (a test for digestive system problems including colon cancer). As part of the program, patients completed a checklist about when they last received cancer-screening tests. The medical office used a series of stickers on medical records to show whether cancer-screening tests were due, ordered, or completed. In addition, office staff members were assigned specific roles in carrying out the program. ...

TUESDAY, Aug. 18, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Women smokers already have one bad habit. A new study finds another: Theyre less likely than others to go for cancer screenings.. Moreover, theyre more likely to have spreading cancer when diagnosed, according to findings. For the report, researchers collected data on more than 89,000 postmenopausal women who took part in a long-running U.S. study. More than half had never smoked; 41% were former smokers; and 6% were current smokers, although nearly half of these women quit smoking by the end of the study. Over an average of nine years of follow-up, more than 7,000 women developed breast cancer, 1,600 had colon cancer and 61 had cervical cancer. Compared with nonsmokers, former smokers were more likely to have regular cancer screenings, but current smokers were much less likely to do so. The report was published online Aug. 13 in the journal BMJ Open. Concern for personal health is the most common reason given for smoking cessation among former ...
Mammography is effective in the early detection of breast cancer, especially among women 50 years and older. Detection and treatment of breast cancer at an early stage of disease can improve survival and yield substantial savings in medical care costs. This manual is a source of basic information on mammography and the intervention strategies and tools that health plans may use to help increase the screening rates. The manual is designed to be user-friendly, practical and adaptable to the needs and capacity of different health plans and will assist health plans to: 1. assess existing barriers to mammography; 2. identify the characteristics of members, providers and health care delivery systems for use in tailoring intervention strategies to increase their effectiveness; 3. identify the population(s) and providers(s) to target for intervention as well as the missed and untapped opportunities to increase mammography rates; 4. select and implement appropriate intervention strategies including those ...
Theres a bit of controversy among doctors and researchers over whether annual physicals are actually necessary for healthy patients, but new research has identified one distinct benefit of routine visits with a primary care physician: increased colon cancer screenings.. Colon cancer is the third most common cancer among men and women in the United States. Current screening guidelines recommend that most individuals begin routine screening at the age of 50 and every 10 years thereafter. However, despite these recommendations, reports by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicate that only 65.1 percent of eligible individuals are current with colon cancer screenings ...
Ji Young Bang MBBS MPH, Azeem Majeed MD FRCGP FFPH Department of Primary Care & Public Health, Imperial College Faculty of Medicine, London, W6 8RP, UK July 5, 2012 Screening for Cervical Cancer: U.S. Preventive Services Task Force Recommendation Statement As in the USA, cervical cancer incidence and mortality have fallen in England since the introduction of cervical screening.[1,2] For the full benefits of screening to be achieved, uptake of screening should be as high as possible. However, despite the evidence about its effectiveness and even though the health system in England offers universal health care through the National Health Service (NHS) that is free at the point of delivery to all its residents, including preventive programs, cervical screening coverage varies widely among English primary care organizations. Standardized collection of data on cervical screening nationally and the availability of other data on primary care trusts (the organizations in Englands NHS responsible for ...
Recently, health screening recommendations have gone beyond screening for early-stage, asymptomatic disease to include screening for presently experienced health problems and symptoms using self-report questionnaires. We examined recommendations from three major national guideline organizations to determine the consistency of recommendations, identify sources of divergent recommendations, and determine if guideline organizations have identified any direct randomized controlled trial (RCT) evidence for the effectiveness of questionnaire-based screening. We reviewed recommendation statements listed by the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care (CTFPHC), the United Kingdom National Screening Committee (UKNSC), and the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) as of 5 September 2016. Eligible recommendations focused on using self-report questionnaires to identify patients with presently experienced health problems or symptoms. Within each recommendation and accompanying evidence ...

Cancer prevention, screening and early detection programs have been among the most beneficial health care practices implemented in the United States, saving countless lives every year. Cancer screenings are tests performed on healthy individuals without any symptoms. The tests either prevent cancer or detect it early, when the chances for successful treatment are highest. With March being Colon Cancer Awareness Month, it is important to highlight the progress, as well as issues, surrounding

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in Texas - more than breast, prostate, and colorectal cancers combined. The good news is that annual lung cancer screening with low-dose computed tomography, or LCS with LDCT, allows for lung cancer to be diagnosed at earlier stages than in the past. Most importantly, up to 80% of people with screen-detected lung cancer can be cured. Despite United States Preventive Services Task Force recommendations for LCS with LDCT in high-risk individuals and CMS coverage since 2015, Texas ranks below average for LCS among high risk individuals, with only 1.7% of those eligible receiving screening with LDCT, according to the American Lung Association.. Provider discussion and referral can have a tremendous impact on screening participation. In one study, 82% of patients reported that they would undergo LDCT lung screening if recommended by their physician. Another study found that approximately 85% of LCS-adherent patients reported trust in their provider ...
I am so happy to have found this article, which states so clearly many of the points that I have been trying to get across to family and friends on the issue of mammograms (as well as health/medical issues in general). Also, I find many of the readers comments just as valuable. I will be passing along the article and comments to many -- including my sister, who is an OB/GYN doctor and needs to hear this.. Hopefully, more and more women are questioning the risks/benefits of mammograms, especially in light of the new guidelines presented by the United States Preventive Services Task Force last year. Interestingly for me, my time to start yearly mammograms at age 40 came a few years ago, before the new guidelines. Being the type of person that I am -- doing research for myself, rather than trusting someone elses position, regardless of that persons title -- I started reading up on mammograms. Even without the data, as another reader commented, the process (compression of the breasts, radiation ...
The screening assessments were positive in 5,805/14,561(39.9%) for alcohol and 2,454/14,494 (16.9%) for drugs. We collapsed the free-text chief complaints into 50 usable categories. To identify 75% of all ED patients having positive assessments using the first strategy would require including 19 chief complaints for alcohol screening and 20 chief complaints for drug screening. Adapting the second strategy, we would need to screen at least 71% and 68% of all ED patients for alcohol and drugs respectively to identify 75% of those having positive assessments. Among all ED patients screening positive for unhealthy alcohol or drug use. N=6,698 (46.0%), Figures 1 and 2 show the cumulative proportion of positive screens detected for each strategy when presenting complaints are used to select a subset of patients to screen. The horizontal axis adds complaints one at a time in descending order of complaint sensitivity in detecting positive screens (Strategy 1), and proportion positive screens when the ...

In 2012, the United States Preventive Services Task Force recommended that men of all ages should not be routinely screened for levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA). These are the blood tests to detect the possibility of prostate cancer.. That group now recommends that men ages 55 to 69 should talk with their doctors and make well-informed individual decisions about the potential harms and benefits of PSA screening, as well as treatment if cancer is found.. ...
The findings of the present study show that women who receive opioid prescriptions are no less likely to report undergoing recommended cancer screenings than those who do not receive such prescriptions. In models that did not account for their greater health care utilization, the results suggested a greater likelihood of breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screenings among women prescribed opioids compared to women who were not. Adjusting for total doctors office visits showed attenuation of this effect. These fully adjusted models showed little relation between opioids and cancer screenings. This suggests that the key driver of whether women receive recommended cancer screenings is simply how often they see their doctor.. The opioid-preventive care relation was consistent in sensitivity analyses that examined different categories of opioid prescription use. These findings counter prevailing concerns that addressing pain and managing prescription opioid therapy might be detrimental to ...

In the wake of these reports, some groups are reviewing their current guidelines, which recommend aspirin to prevent coronary heart disease but not colorectal cancer. Were all aware of this issue, said Virginia Moyer, MD, MPH, who chairs the United States Preventive Services Task Force. The Task Force, which reviews all its guidelines on a rotating schedule, will be looking at this one, though no date has been set. It remains on the active topic list, Dr. Moyer wrote in an e-mail, and will be updated, but unfortunately, its waiting in line with a number of other important updates.. In the meantime, analysis continues in two large studies that did not show any benefit for aspirin in colorectal cancer after 10 to 12 years follow-up. Both the Womens Health Study and the Physicians Health Study looked at aspirin taken every other day rather than daily. New data from these large and rigorous studies, when available, are expected to have a substantial influence on the evolution of future ...

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has released a proposed decision memo for adding hepatitis B screening as a covered Medicare preventive service. CMS is proposing to cover hepatitis B screening at no cost to Medicare beneficiaries who are at high risk as defined by the United States Preventive Services Task Force. To be covered by Medicare, the test would need to be ordered by the beneficiarys primary care physician or practitioner within the context of a primary care setting and performed by an eligible Medicare provider. CMS is now accepting public comments in response to its proposed decision. The deadline to submit comments is August 6, 2016. You can read this decision memo here.

Vitamin D and calcium are dietary requirements, but its unclear how much is best for us. New draft findings by the United States Preventive Services Task Force conclude that for healthy, postmenopausal women, daily supplementation with low levels of vitamin D - up to 400 international units - combined with 1,000 milligrams of calcium, does not reduce fracture risk.

Getting regular medical checkups (e.g. by a service like Werlabs) is not something that everyone does. Even when they have the health insurance that covers them.. These five reasons to get regular medical checkups, however, could prove to you why this is important and why you should be getting them every year.. Prevention is important - If most illnesses are caught early enough, curing them is relatively simple. The longer you wait to see a doctor, however, the more likely it is that any illness you have has developed to the extent that it could be difficult to cure.. Get regular medical checkups and worrying about an illness developing could be a thing of the past.. Cancer screenings - Various types of cancer screenings will be included in any regular medical checkup. As cancers that are caught early are much easier to cure than those that are not, it is important to have regular cancer screenings.. Annual EKGs - Many people have heart problems yet do not know that they do. An annual EKG done ...
Two studies help clarify the risks and benefits of breast cancer-screening strategies, and explain the USPSTF final recommendation.
The earlier breast cancer is found, the easier it is to treat. And mammogram, X-rays of the breast, can detect tumors before they are large enough to feel. The American Cancer Society recommends yearly mammogram beginning at age 40 for women at average risk. While the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends a screening mammogram every two years from age 50 to 74. It also notes that before age 50, each woman should check with a doctor to find out what screening schedule is right for her, considering the potential benefits and harms from screening. ...

Most screen-detected breast cancer survivors have been either overdiagnosed or diagnosed early without effect on mortality risk, a probability modeling study suggested.
The U.S. Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) approved annual screening with low-dose CT for individuals at high risk for lung cancer.. The task force recommended annual scans for adults aged 55 to 80 who have a smoking history of 30 pack-years (= 1pack/day for 30 years, 2 packs/day for 15 years) and who currently smoke or who have quit within the past 15 years and who have no symptoms of lung cancer.. The recommendations are in large part based on the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) in the United States, which compared lung cancer screening methods (chest xray vs. CT scans) in current and former smokers. The results showed that people who received low-dose CT scans had a lower risk of dying from lung cancer than people who received standard chest X-rays.. The USPSTFs recommendation is on par with previous recommendations for screening for breast, colon and cervical cancers - for which survival has increased dramatically following wide-spread screening programs. it is felt that the ...
Breast cancer screening saves live and is worth the cost, despite findings released by the Department of Health and Cancer Research UKs review.
The main goal of this analysis was to generate estimates of self-report accuracy for specific cancer-screening procedures that could then be applied to national survey data to improve the accuracy of national prevalence estimates for colorectal cancer screening and screening for other cancers, estimates that are largely based on self-reports. We examined sensitivity as a measure of underreporting and examined both specificity and positive predictive value as measures of overreporting.. We found that estimates of self-report accuracy varied substantially from study to study, making it difficult to arrive at stable estimates of self-report accuracy for different procedures and accuracy measures. Study heterogeneity could be the result of many different factors related to sample socioeconomic and cultural characteristics, the context in which self-reports were elicited (e.g., survey mode and location, wording of question), and the completeness and accuracy of documentation of true screening ...

A federal government task force recommended Monday that women do not get routinely screened for ovarian cancer because doing so can put them at increased risk for unnecessary harm, such as major surgery.
Pap test every 3 years for women ages 21-29; for women 30-65, Pap test and HPV test every 5 years or Pap test alone every 3 years. Women at average risk should not be screened more than once every 3 years. Testing may be stopped at age 65 or 70 for women who have 3 or more normal Pap tests in a row and no abnormal test results in 10 years. If you have had your cervix and uterus removed, ask your health care provider if you need to continue screening ...

Scientists have been trying to find a quick, noninvasive cancer-screening test for years. Most doctors now rely on blood tests to detect cancer-and usually only if they suspect you have the disease. Even then, it can take as long as two weeks to get results back.. That could be changing soon. Researchers from the University of California at Los Angeles announced at a conference that theyve developed a new test that can detect cancer in a single drop of saliva. With just one mouth swab, doctors would be able to detect traces of cancer cells in 10 minutes. Quick results would mean faster treatment, which could be life-saving for such types of deadly conditions as pancreatic cancer. ...
