    8. Impact of shared care program in follow-up of childhood cancer survivors: An intervention study

      With the growing rate of childhood cancer cure and the risks of sequelae, long-term follow-up (FU) of survivors is a central issue. Several models have been proven far from satisfactory. Shared care FU is the result of collaboration between general practitioners (GPs) and cancer centers. We sought to demonstrate the feasibility of setting up a shared care program based on the patient-centered education of GPs and to evaluate the impact of this model in an intervention study.

    12. Pregnancy in survivors of childhood cancer may confer elevated risk for cardiotoxicity

      Pregnancy may be linked to an increased risk for cardiotoxicity in patients who survived cancer in childhood, according to a research letter published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.Using data from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Kara A. Thompson, MD, from the department of cardiology at the University of Texas, Houston, and colleagues evaluated the cardiac outcomes of childhood cancer survivors who were pregnant and who were previously exposed to anthracyclines and/or chest radiation.

    15. Risk and impact of pulmonary complications in survivors of childhood cancer: A report from the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study.

      "By the age of 45 years, the cumulative incidence of any pulmonary condition was 29.6% (95% CI, 29.1%-30.0%) for cancer survivors and 26.5% (95% CI, 24.9%-28.0%) for siblings. Fewer survivors reported ever smoking (23.6% vs 36.4%, P < .001), but survivors were more likely to report chronic cough (rate ratio [RR], 1.6; 95% CI, 1.4-1.9), oxygen need (RR, 1.8; 95% CI, 1.5-2.2), lung fibrosis (RR, 3.5; 95% CI, 2.3-5.4), and recurrent pneumonia (RR, 2.0; 95% CI, 1.4-3.0).

    16. Transition and transfer of childhood cancer survivors to adult care: A national survey of pediatric oncologists

      "Of 347 respondents, 50% are male, median years in practice 10 (range 5–22), 37% practice in freestanding children's hospitals. Almost all care for survivors up to age 21 years (96%), 42% care for survivors over age 25 years, and only 16% over age 30 years. While 66% of oncologists reported providing transition education to their patients, very few (8%) reported using standardized transition assessments. The most frequent barriers to transfer were perceived attachment to provider (91%), lack of adult providers with cancer survivor expertise (86%), patient's cognitive delay (81%), or unstable social situation (80%). Oncologists who continue ...

    17. Pediatric quality of life in long-term survivors of childhood cancer treated with anthracyclines.

      "Eighty survivors participated and were characterized by cardiotoxicity risk status (high: 12; moderate: 23, low: 24, no risk: 21) as defined by the Children's Oncology Group (COG). Measures in all PedsQL domains tended to be slightly lower for survivors exposed to anthracyclines as compared to the unexposed. The largest difference in unadjusted mean scores was for social functioning (96.0% for unexposed vs. 91.3% for exposed, P = 0.0068). There was also an inverse dose-response relation between adjusted PedsQL scores and increasing anthracycline cardiotoxicity risk; this association was not modified by physical activity level."
