NEWS & UPDATES
  • Sure, a healthy lifestyle can lower a person’s risk, but the impact of specific actions is harder to tease out. Diet, exercise, tobacco use, nutritional supplements, alcohol consumption … How important are each of these factors, individually? Does strict adherence to (or rejection of) one get you a pass o...
  • Healthcare decisions are tough. They’re even tougher when you – or loved ones – have to to make them without a plan or a conversation. National Healthcare Decisions Day, on April 16,  is a nationwide initiative to demystify the healthcare decision-making process and encourage families to start talking. Ul...
  • The statistics, direct from the American Cancer Society, are sobering: Cancer death rates among African-American men are 27 percent higher than for white men. The death rate for African-American women is 11 percent higher compared to white women. Hispanics have higher rates of cervical, liver and stomach cancer...
  • “Lucky” is not usually a term used to describe someone diagnosed with cancer.  But that’s how 34-year-old Alex Camargo’s doctor described him when he was diagnosed with thyroid cancer — the disease is one of the most treatable cancers at all stages. That doctor was ultimately proved righ...
  • Geoff Berman, 61, starts his day with the motto: “The sun is up. I’m vertical. It’s a good day.” Ever since he’s been in remission from lymphoma, Berman makes a special point of being grateful for each day, reminding himself that being alive is a gift. “I just enjoy living,” he said. “I give e...
  • Neural stem cells have a natural ability to seek out cancer cells in the brain. Recent research from the laboratories of Michael Barish, Ph.D., and Karen Aboody, M.D., may offer a new explanation for this attraction between stem cells and tumors. Prior to joining City of Hope, Aboody, now a professor in the Dep...
  • The American Society of Clinical Oncology, a group that includes more than 40,000 cancer specialists around the country, recently issued a list of the five most profound cancer advances over the past five decades. Near the top of the list was the introduction of chemotherapy for testicular cancer. To many in th...
  • “The dying, as a group, have been horribly underserved.” So says Bonnie Freeman, R.N., D.N.P., A.N.P.-B.C., A.C.H.P.N., a nurse practitioner in the Department of Supportive Care Medicine at City of Hope. After nearly 25 years, primarily in critical care nursing, Freeman saw that the needs of the dying were ofte...
  • “Are we the only ones who feel this way?” Courtney Bitz, L.C.S.W., a social worker in the Sheri & Les Biller Patient and Family Resource Center at City of Hope, often hears this question from couples trying to cope with a breast cancer diagnosis and still keep their relationship strong. The ques...
  • Diabetes investigators at City of Hope are studying the full trajectory of diabetes and metabolic disorders, as well as complications of the disease. One especially promising approach focuses on proteins known as growth factors. Led by Fouad Kandeel, M.D., Ph.D., chair and professor of the Department of Clinica...
  • Acute myeloid leukemia is the most common form of acute leukemia among adults, accounting for 18,000 diagnoses in 2014. Two decades ago, in 1996, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) published its first guidelines for treatment of acute myeloid leukemia, or AML. Margaret O’Donnell, M.D., assoc...
  • Children diagnosed with cancer are more likely than ever before to survive the disease, but with a potential new set of health problems caused by the cancer treatment itself. Those problems can particularly affect the heart, and as doctors and other health care workers try to assess how best to care for this sp...
  • Karen Reckamp, M.D., M.S., has an office next to my own, and we often see patients at the same time. As such, I’ve gotten to know her quite well over the years, and I’ve also gotten a glimpse of many of her patients. She specializes in lung cancer, and most of her patients have tumors […]
  • Today is National Doctors Day, the official day to recognize, thank and celebrate the tremendous work physicians do each and every day. Launched in 1991 via a presidential proclamation from then-President George Bush, the observance offers a chance to reflect on the qualities that define truly great medical car...
  • When considering cancer risk, categories like “women’s cancers” and “men’s cancers” may not matter. A complete medical history, especially of first-degree relatives, must be considered when evaluating risk. A new study drives home that fact. Published in the journal Cancer, the study found a link between a fami...
