March 2016—Reproducibility of residual cancer burden for assessing breast cancer after neoadjuvant chemotherapy: The residual cancer burden index was developed to quantify residual disease ranging from pathological complete response to extensive residual disease. The authors conducted a study to evaluate inter-pathologist reproducibility in the residual cancer burden index score and category and in their long-term prognostic utility.

March 2016—Enhancing tumor selectivity of a picornavirus virotherapy: Oncolytic viruses that selectively target tumor cells are a promising cancer therapy and are thought to work not only via direct lysis and destruction of tumor cells but also through recruitment and activation of the host’s anti-tumor immune response. While there are a number of naturally occurring viruses that preferentially replicate in cancer cells and have otherwise limited effects in human tissue, the real therapeutic promise lies in genetically engineered viruses.

March 2016—Impact of add-on laboratory testing at an academic medical center: Clinical laboratories are often asked to perform additional laboratory tests after the original sample is received and testing per the original order is complete. It is well known that this significantly increases laboratory workload and impacts turnaround time.

February 2016—Link between a liberal transfusion strategy and patient survival: Guidelines support using a restrictive strategy for blood transfusion management in various clinical settings. However, randomized controlled trials in cardiac surgery, oncology, and hip fracture surgery suggest that a more liberal transfusion strategy may benefit survival.

February 2016—Subtype classification of lung adenocarcinoma in patients undergoing complete resection: The classification for invasive lung adenocarcinoma by the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer, American Thoracic Society, European Respiratory Society, and World Health Organization is based on the predominant histologic pattern—lepidic, papillary, acinar, micropapillary, or solid—present in the tumor.
