BACKGROUND Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a significant side effect of taxane and platinum-based chemotherapy. Several studies have supported the potential benefit of glutathione for the prevention of platinum-induced CIPN. The current trial was designed to determine whether glutathione would prevent CIPN as a result of(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the delivery of procedural sedation and analgesia (PSA) in an urban teaching hospital Emergency Department (ED) over a 2-year period, and identify factors associated with complications. METHODS Consecutive ED patients requiring PSA were prospectively enrolled onto the Registry of Emergency Procedural(More)

DESIGN Retrospective study of registry data from a large UK teaching hospital ED. Consecutive adult patients(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the incidence of fosaprepitant-associated infusion site adverse events (ISAEs) among a cohort of breast cancer patients receiving doxorubicin/cyclophosphamide (AC) chemotherapy. A retrospective review of electronic medical record (EMR) data was performed for all patients who were initiated on AC from January 2011(More)
There are few studies examining complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) use and beliefs among non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) survivors. Seven hundred and nineteen patients with NHL from the University of Iowa/Mayo Clinic Molecular Epidemiology Resource who completed the 3-year post-diagnosis questionnaire were included in this study. Altogether 636 (89%)(More)
Translocation (9;22)(q34;q11.2) resulting in BCR/ABL1 fusion at the molecular level is the hallmark of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). Variants of the Philadelphia translocation and complex translocations involving BCR have been reported in myeloproliferative disorders (MPD). A rare translocation, t(9;22)(p24;q11.2), resulting in a novel BCR-JAK2 fusion(More)
Fosaprepitant is an antiemetic used for chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. We recently reported increased infusion site adverse events (ISAE) in a cohort of breast cancer patients receiving chemotherapy with doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide (AC). In this current study, we evaluated the venous toxicity of fosaprepitant use with non-anthracycline(More)
Classical myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) are composed of essential thrombocythemia (ET), polycythemia vera (PV) and myelofibrosis (MF), the etiology of which is largely unknown. We investigated the role of anthropometric, medical and lifestyle factors with risk of MPN in a prospective cohort of 27,370 women aged 55-69 years at enrollment. After(More)
This study aimed to determine the prevalence of patient recall and its relationship between sedation depth, pain and patient satisfaction in a sample of patients receiving procedural sedation in the emergency department. Recall, pain and patient satisfaction were measured on a scale of 0-10 and sedation depth a scale of 1-4 (American Society of(More)
