Failure to publish trial results exposes patients to risks without providing benefits

Is breast conserving therapy or mastectomy better for early breast cancer?
Young women with early breast cancer face a difficult choice about whether to opt for a mastectomy or breast conserving therapy (BCT). New research has shown young women, who had early stage breast cancer that had not spread to the lymph nodes and who opted for BCT with radiation therapy, had a 13 percent higher risk of developing a local recurrence of their disease over a 20-year period than women who had a mastectomy and no radiation therapy.

Inadequate Financial Savings Tied to Increased Childhood Health Risks
Newswise imageThe connection between a family's income and childhood health has been well-established, with lower income linked to poorer health and a greater likelihood of more chronic conditions. Now a new study by UCLA researchers shows that the size of the paycheck is not all that matters when it comes to children's health risks. So does the amount that a family has tucked away in savings.
