OncoReview 1, March 2018
in the first OnCOReview issue of this year you will traditionally find papers presenting interesting findings and clinical experiences in the fields of cardiooncology, haematology and oncological endocrinology.
In the section dedicated to cardiooncology, we present a case of acute coronary syndrome treatment in a patient with metastatic prostate cancer and advanced urinary bladder carcinoma. The authors have analysed their therapeutic actions in the context of the recent findings from international literature.
In the haematology section, you will find a review of the most recent findings on the treatment of anaemia, which is one of the most significant factors reducing the patients’ quality of life, and restricting the anti-cancer therapeutic options. A special emphasis has been placed on the issues related to longer patient survival.
Endocrinology is the prevailing theme of the following two papers published in this issue of the journal. Based on a case study, palliative therapy in hormone receptor-positive breast cancer has been discussed. In the second paper, on the other hand, the role of endoscopic ultrasound in the detection and assessment of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours is presented.
As tradition has it, we close this issue with a section dedicated to the quality of life, presenting a case of advanced clear-cell sarcoma, focusing on the treatment and the ways of accomplishing the most favourable prognosis possible in that difficult group of patients.
