Benefits and harms of erythropoiesis-stimulating agents for anemia related to cancer: a meta-analysis
Benefits and harms of erythropoiesis-stimulating agents for anemia related to cancer: a meta-analysis -- Tonelli et al., 10.1503/cmaj.090470 -- Canadian Medical Association Journal
Webcasts: "More than 90 hours of selected Annual Meeting talks will be made available as free online webcasts approximately 10 business days* after the AACR 100th Annual Meeting 2009 and will remain accessible for two years. Sessions that are to be webcast will include audio and, if available, slides from the talks.
Note: Only individual talks within a session that AACR has received permission to webcast will be included. For example, if there are four talks in a session and only two speakers give their permission to be webcast, then only those two talks will be made available.
*The Opening Plenary and the Spotlight on Breakthroughs in Cancer Research session will both be available as webcasts approximately 24 hours after they conclude."
this link above is previous research (2008) regarding chromosome 8q24 region and it's wider scope of impact:
The authors' analysis suggests that there may be five distinct subregions within 8q24, separated by sites of frequent recombination, and each associated with different types of cancer. The first subregion is associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer but not with risk of breast, colorectal, or ovarian cancer. The second is associated only with an increased risk of breast cancer. The third subregion is associated with the risk of prostate, colorectal and ovarian cancers, but not breast, and subregions four and five were associated with prostate cancer, but not with the other three malignancies.
"We have shown there are at least five independent loci within this gene desert with different associations with particular cancers," the authors write. "Further studies of the region may identify additional loci associated with specific cancers and possibly refine our understanding of the mechanisms underlying the associations reported here."
