Prevalence of joint symptoms in postmenopausal women taking aromatase inhibitors for early-stage breast cancer.
TLDR
This study suggests that AI-related joint symptoms are more prevalent than what has been described previously in clinical trials and the success of AI therapy depends on patients' ability to adhere to treatment recommendations; therefore, additional studies of interventions that may alleviate these symptoms are needed.

Evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for integrative oncology: complementary therapies and botanicals.
TLDR
The Society for Integrative Oncology is an international organization dedicated to encouraging scientifi c evaluation, dissemination of evidence-based information, and appropriate clinical integration of complementary therapies. Expand
Randomized, blinded, sham-controlled trial of acupuncture for the management of aromatase inhibitor-associated joint symptoms in women with early-stage breast cancer.
TLDR
Women with AI-induced arthralgias treated with TA had significant improvement of joint pain and stiffness, which was not seen with SA, and Acupuncture is an effective and well-tolerated strategy for managing this common treatment-related side effect. Expand
Influence of omega-3 (n3) index on performance and wellbeing in young adults after heavy eccentric exercise.
TLDR
Omega-3 index (N3) is elevated after supplementation versus placebo in healthy young adults, andSubjects with higher N3 index demonstrated reduced DOMS after heavy exercise and better quality of life, and POMS scores were improved in high N3 Index subjects demonstrating better QOL. Expand
Zyflamend in men with high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia: results of a phase I clinical trial.
TLDR
Zyflamend alone and in combination with various dietary supplements is associated with minimal toxicity and no serious adverse events when administered orally for 18 months, and further studies are warranted to evaluate these agents in patients who are at risk for CaP. Expand
Pilot study of acupuncture for the treatment of joint symptoms related to adjuvant aromatase inhibitor therapy in postmenopausal breast cancer patients
TLDR
In this pilot study, acupuncture reduced AI-related joint symptoms and improved functional ability and was well-tolerated, suggesting acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for AI-induced arthralgias. Expand
Complex regulation of human androgen receptor expression by Wnt signaling in prostate cancer cells
TLDR
The data indicate that the hAR gene is a direct target of LEF-1/TCF transcriptional regulation in PCa cells but also show that the expression of the har protein is suppressed by a degradation pathway regulated by cross-talk of Wnt to Akt that is likely mediated by Wnt-directed degradation of the B regulatory subunit of protein phosphatase, PP2A. Expand
Anti-prostate cancer activity of a beta-carboline alkaloid enriched extract from Rauwolfia vomitoria.
TLDR
The Rauwolfia vomitoria extract significantly suppressed the growth and cell cycle progression of LNCaP cells, in vitro and in vivo. Expand
Randomized sham-controlled pilot trial of weekly electro-acupuncture for the prevention of taxane-induced peripheral neuropathy in women with early stage breast cancer
TLDR
In a randomized, sham-controlled trial of EA for prevention of taxane-induced CIPN, there were no differences in pain or neuropathy between groups at week 12, and of concern, subjects on EA had a slower recovery than SEA subjects. Expand
The use of herbal and over-the-counter dietary supplements for the prevention of prostate cancer
TLDR
There is insufficient clinical evidence to support the widespread use of these dietary supplements for chemoprevention of prostate cancer, although ongoing clinical trials of the most promising vitamins and minerals are approaching conclusion. Expand
