SAN FRANCISCO — Among patients undergoing chemoradiation therapy (CRT) for localized esophageal cancer, the dose of radiation that reaches the lung, but not that reaching the heart, has been shown to be an independent predictor of survival. Specifically, lung V20, or the volume of the lung receiving a dose of at least 20 Gy, was a significant predictor of overall survival, noted lead author, Patrick Oh, a second-year medical student at Stony Brook University School of Medicine in New York.
Two recent papers shine a light on monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined signiﬁcance (MGUS), a premalignant condition that is prevalent in the general population, affecting about 3% of individuals aged 50 years and older and 5.3% of those 70 years or older. It is associated with a modest but persistent lifetime risk for progression to incurable cancer, including multiple myeloma.
SAN FRANCISCO — Adding the antiangiogenesis agent ramucirumab (Cyramza, Eli Lilly) to first-line chemotherapy conferred a significant reduction in the risk for disease progression or death among patients with metastatic gastric or gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma, according to results of the RAINFALL trial. The study met its primary endpoint of progression free survival (PFS), said lead author, Charles S. Fuchs, MD, MPH, director of Yale Cancer Center, New Haven, Connecticut.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
