Highlights in Nurse Practitioner

CHD7 associated with survival in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma patients receiving gemcitabine

As reported in Cancer Research, low CHD7 expression is associated with increased RFS and OS in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma patients receiving gemcitabine. There was no association between CHD7 expression and RFS or OS in patients who were not treated with gemcitabine.

High expression of MUC1 + HER3 is associated with favorable outcome in bladder cancer patients

As reported in BJU International, elevated co-expression of MUC1 + HER3 was associated with improved survival in patients with bladder cancer. MUC1 alone, or elevated MUC1 + non-elevated HER3, had no prognostic value. Moreover, MUC1 was not predictive of survival, tumor stage, or tumor grade.

Muscle strength in adolescence decreases CVD risk

As reported in BMC Medicine, adolescents (n=38588) with the highest tertile of muscle strength had a decreased risk of CVD (HR=0.88) compared to adolescents with the lowest tertile of muscle strength after 42 y of follow-up. Of note, low muscle strength in adolescence by itself had no effect on CVD risk in middle age (HR=0.99). In contrast, high muscle strength in adolescence significantly decreased the risk of CVD in middle age (HR=1.31).
