Trisomies in multiple myeloma: impact on survival in patients with high-risk cytogenetics.
It is concluded that the presence of trisomies in patients with t(4;14), t(14;16), t (14;20), or p53 deletion abnormalities in MM ameliorates the usual adverse impact associated with these prognostic markers. Expand
Racial disparities in the prevalence of monoclonal gammopathies: a population-based study of 12 482 persons from the National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey
MGUS is significantly more common in blacks, and more often has features associated with higher risk of progression to MM, and a strong geographic disparity in the prevalence of MGUS between the North/Midwest versus the South/West regions of the United States was found, which has etiologic implications. Expand
Disparities in the prevalence, pathogenesis and progression of monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance and multiple myeloma between blacks and whites
The literature on racial disparity in the prevalence, pathogenesis and progression of MGUS and multiple myeloma between blacks and whites is reviewed and it is suggested that the risk may be lower in certain racial and ethnic groups, notably persons from Japan and Mexico. Expand
Clinical course and prognosis of non‐secretory multiple myeloma
- S. Chawla, Shaji K. Kumar, +6 authors S. Rajkumar
- European journal of haematology
- 16 February 2015
To determine the prognosis of patients with non‐secretory myeloma, a large number of patients are diagnosed with at least one type of cancer and the odds of survival are low. Expand
Familial monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance and multiple myeloma: epidemiology, risk factors, and biological characteristics.
The known epidemiology and risk factors for familial MGUS and myeloma, the risk of lymphoproliferative disorders and other malignancies among blood-relatives of patients with MG US and MM are reviewed, and future directions for research are discussed. Expand
Access to Electronic Personal Health Records Among Patients With Multiple Chronic Conditions: A Secondary Data Analysis
- A. Greenberg, Angela L Falisi, +4 authors B. Hesse
- Journal of medical Internet research
- 1 June 2017
It is concluded that ePHRs provide a unique opportunity to enhance MCC patient self-management, but additional effort is needed to ensure that these patients are able to access their e PHRs. Expand
The role of Internet resources in clinical oncology: promises and challenges
Findings from the NCI's Health Information National Trends Survey are reviewed to give insight into how Internet trends related to oncology patients are evolving. Expand
Genome-wide association study identifies variants at 16p13 associated with survival in multiple myeloma patients.
It is found that the minor allele was associated with increased expression of FOPNL and increased expression is associated with higher expression of centrosomal genes and with shorter survival among MM patients. Expand
The health information national trends survey (HINTS): A resource for consumer engagement and health communication research
Suggestions are given for how this ongoing public surveillance mechanism can be used to provide a sentinel view of how the public is interacting with information in the environment to address their health needs. Expand
