High-functioning individuals with autism have been found to favor visuospatial processing in the face of typically poor language abilities. We aimed to examine the neurobiological basis of this difference using functional magnetic resonance imaging and diffusion tensor imaging. We compared 12 children with high functioning autism (HFA) to 12 age- and(More)
179 Background: Obesity is an established risk factor for postmenopausal breast cancer. Though women with high BMI tend to develop less aggressive molecular subtypes, previous studies have shown that they still have a higher risk of recurrence and worse prognosis. The biological mechanisms for this difference in outcome have yet to be identified. The(More)
COPBLAM III, a polychemotherapy regimen consisting of cyclophosphamide, infusional vincristine, prednisone, infusional bleomycin, doxorubicin, and procarbazine, was administered to 51 patients with diffuse large-cell lymphoma. Ninety-six percent of patients age 60 or younger achieved a complete response (CR); none have relapsed. Overall, 88% of patients are(More)
Individuals who are given a preventive exam by a primary care provider are more likely to agree to cancer screening. The provider recommendation has been identified as the strongest factor associated with screening utilization. This article provides a framework for breast cancer risk assessment for an advanced practice registered nurse working in primary(More)
INTRODUCTION We performed the present study to better understand the practices and preferences of women with an elevated risk of breast cancer by merging the registries from 2 separate institutions and comparing the clinical characteristics and outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS The data from women enrolled in institutional review board-approved registries(More)
160 Background: Triple-negative breast cancers (TNBC) represent 10%-20% of invasive breast cancers. Current guidelines recommend genetic testing for women who are diagnosed with TNBC. Studies have shown that BRCA1 mutations are associated with TNBC, but there is little information on the relationship of BRCA2 mutations and TNBC. The purpose of this study(More)
Oncotype DX recurrence score (ODX) can predict risk of invasive breast cancer recurrence and benefit of chemotherapy. Literature is limited on the relationship of ODX and race in women with hormone receptor positive and node negative/positive disease. Our study examines the relationship between race and clinical characteristics within a population of highly(More)
Breast cancer survivors often turn to complementary health approaches (CHAs) to address the effects of treatment. Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) is a type of CHA that uses attentional and meditative exercises to minimize stress and increase awareness of the present. This article aims to determine whether adequate evidence-based research with(More)
112 Background: Maintaining a healthy weight after breast cancer diagnosis has been associated with improved survival outcomes. Lifestyle interventions are particularly important in overweight women who are at an increased risk of overall and breast-cancer specific death compared to non-overweight women. The purpose of this study is to examine the barriers(More)
PURPOSE The purpose was to evaluate the relationship between body mass index (BMI), mammographic breast density, magnetic resonance (MR) background parenchymal enhancement (BPE), and MR fibroglandular tissue (FGT) in women with breast cancer. METHODS Our institutional database was queried for patients with preoperative mammography and breast MR imaging.(More)
