1. Cardiac Risk Higher for Women Getting Radiation. Women undergoing radiation therapy for esophageal cancer appear to be at greater risk of cardiac complications than men.
2. Gastric Ca Survival Rates Down, Chemo Use Up. A decline in survival rates in stage IV gastric cancer coincides with the increased use of chemotherapy rather than radiation and surgery.
3. FDA Warnings Not Heeded Equally. The attention paid to FDA notices about drug risks appears to be highly variable, with some notices having a wide impact and others garnering a delayed response or none at all.
