Last year alone, GameSense Advisors had approximately 55,000 interactions with players at B.C. casinos. The majority of patrons who have visited GameSense Information Centres and have interacted with GameSense Advisors agree they are more educated and equipped for informed play, suggesting the effectiveness of having an interaction with staff onsite when it comes to player education, based on a BCLC patron survey.The Fort St John Chances is one of several Community Gaming Centres to welcome a GameSense Advisor and Information Centre this month as part of BCLC’s expansion of the program to every gambling facility across B.C. by fall 2019. In addition to the expanded GameSense Advisor presence, BCLC has also invested in new GameSense Information Centres, which are welcoming spaces that encourage players to visit and learn more about how games work, talk with a GameSense Advisor or just take a break. “I am proud of our efforts to invest in and enhance player health supports here in Kelowna,” said Dr. Jamie Wiebe, BCLC Director of Player Health. “Research shows that on-site advisors are a valuable resource in the promotion of responsible play and reduction of gambling-related harms.” Player health is a key strategic priority for BCLC. GameSense is the cornerstone for engaging and informing players while removing the stigma that may be associated with accessing responsible and problem gambling resources. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The BCLC has announced a new GameSense Advisor as a resource to support players with healthy-play habits.Karma Rondeau, GameSense Advisor for Chances Fort St. John also has the ability to refer players that are experiencing challenges with their gambling to the support resources they need.“I’m excited to get to know our local players, discuss the odds of winning different games, and share how strategies like sticking to a time and spend budget can keep gambling fun,” said Karma Rondeau, GameSense Advisor, Chances Fort St John. “My role is to support player health by sharing information as well as key resources for those who recognize they need help.”last_img read more

Recent attacks by militias and the Sudanese army on four villages in West Darfur that left at least 115 people dead and some 30,000 displaced violated international humanitarian and human rights law, a United Nations report released today has found. The report, issued by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), in cooperation with the United Nations–African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID), describes attacks on four villages north of El Geneina, the regional capital. The attacks on the villages of Saraf Jidad, Sirba, Silea and Abu Suruj were carried out as part of a push by the Sudanese Government in late January and early February to drive back an insurgent group, the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM). The 8 February attacks involved aerial bombardments by helicopter gun ships and fixed-wing aircraft, accompanied by ground offensives by soldiers and armed militia on horses and camels, the report says. The report describes extensive looting during and after the attacks, and catalogues “consistent and credible accounts” of rape committed by armed men in uniform. “These actions violated the principle of distinction stated in international humanitarian law, failing to distinguish between civilian objects and military objective,” the report concludes. “Moreover, the scale of destruction of civilian property, including objects indispensable for the survival of the civilian population, suggests that the damage was a deliberate and integral part of a military strategy,” it adds. UNAMID human rights staff were unable to investigate reports that similar ground and air offensives carried out on Jebel Moon and nearby areas on 18, 19 and 22 February also resulted in the killing of civilians, as the Government denied the UN access to Jebel Moon until 1 March. According to the report, this was “in breach of its obligation to allow UNAMID officials freedom of movement under the Status of Forces Agreement signed between the UN and the Sudanese Government in February 2008.” The attacks of the JEM rebel group, which precipitated the Government offensive, had previously been determined by the Darfur Ceasefire Commission to be in violation of the 2004 N’Djamena Ceasefire Agreement. Meanwhile, UNAMID Deputy Joint Special Representative Henry Anyidoho travelled to one of the villages, Silea, to assess the security situation on the ground and to look at the possibility of the mission’s deployment there. “The protection of civilians is our priority,” Mr. Anyidoho told community elders. “We will not abandon you. The UN will continue working to improve your living conditions,” he said, affirming that UNAMID would soon have a permanent presence in the area. Currently, UNAMID conducts daily patrols from El Geneina to the conflict-affected areas, allowing humanitarian agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) access to the population. UNAMID took over from a previous AU force at the beginning of the year in a bid to quell the fighting and humanitarian suffering in Darfur, where more than 200,000 people have been killed in the past five years and at least 2.2 million displaced. 20 March 2008Recent attacks by militias and the Sudanese army on four villages in West Darfur that left at least 115 people dead and some 30,000 displaced violated international humanitarian and human rights law, a United Nations report released today has found. read more

He called on Sri Lankans living abroad to contribute towards moderating the negative narratives propagated against Sri Lanka by clarifying genuine concerns and debunking the falsehoods, a statement by the Permanent Mission of Sri Lanka in Geneva said. The Sri Lankan government says attempts are being made by some Sri Lankans abroad to distort the image of the country.Sri Lanka’s Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva, Ambassador Ravinatha Aryasinha said that there was a need to evolve a consensus among Sri Lankans living abroad to desist from seeking to exploit domestic issues as foreign policy issues. The Ambassador made these observations when he addressed the 35th Independence Day celebrations attended by Sri Lankans living in Geneva and surrounding cities at the ILO Headquarters in Geneva. “These continue to be challenging times for Sri Lanka, as some, particularly living abroad, either mis-guided or with vested interests, continue to seek to distort the image of Sri Lanka,” the Ambassador said.While recognizing that there may be differences of opinion amongst Sri Lankans on some issues, the Ambassador said that it is important to identify and bracket issues Sri Lankans disagree on and work harder to reconcile the disagreements internally and not allow them to adversely affect the image of the country abroad. “Such bracketing is something we constantly do in our daily lives – within our homes, offices and communities, where we close ranks on issues, for a higher purpose. Great nations that have succeeded in forging ahead against many odds, are those that have been able to leave domestic issues at the water’s edge,” the Permanent Mission of Sri Lanka in Geneva quoted the Ambassador as saying.

The Chinese embassy in Sri Lanka released a guidebook offering consular protection and assistance to Chinese nationals visiting the island country.In a ceremony held in Colombo, Chinese Ambassador to Sri Lanka Cheng Xueyuan unveiled the book together with Minister of Tourism, John Amaratunga, the Xinhua news agency reported. Speaking at the ceremony, Ambassador Cheng said due to the Belt and Road Initiative and the China-Sri Lanka friendly and pragmatic cooperation, which has benefited the two countries, more Chinese people were visiting Sri Lanka for tourism, businesses and cultural exchanges.Ambassador Cheng said maintaining the safety and legitimate rights and interests of the Chinese nationals overseas was the duty of the Chinese government and the Chinese embassies and consulates, and the Chinese government had always told Chinese travelers to adhere to local laws and local folklore.He said the guidebook provided useful information to all Chinese travelers and hoped it would become a treasure book for those wanting to have a pleasant and peaceful stay in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is aiming to attract at least 300,000 Chinese tourists to visit the country this year. Speaking at the launch, Amaratunga said that this guidebook will be extremely vital in guiding thousands of Chinese tourists who visit Sri Lanka every year and it is an example for other embassies to follow in providing proper guidance in their respective languages to their citizens when they arrive in the country. The guidebook was then handed over to a group of tourists who had attended the ceremony and to representatives of Sri Lankan and Chinese companies based in Colombo. “As you all are aware China is the second highest source of tourists to Sri Lanka. Last year we welcomed 266,000 Chinese tourists to the country,” Amaratunga said.Amaratunga further said the tourism ministry will extend its fullest cooperation in ensuring that the guidebook is distributed to all Chinese nationals arriving in the country. He said the Sri Lanka Tourism Information Center at the Bandaranaike International Airport will also take measures to distribute this guidebook at the arrivals terminal to the Chinese travelers. read more

Court certifies class action seeking compensation for Bell wireless customers TORONTO – An Ontario court has certified a class-action lawsuit against Bell Mobility alleging that expiry dates on its pre-paid wireless services should not be allowed.The suit argues that the services should be treated like gift cards and not have an expiry date.The decision Friday by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice allows the case, which has not been proven in court, to proceed.The suit was filed on behalf of anyone in Ontario who had bought pre-paid wireless services since May 2010 from Bell Mobility, Virgin Mobile or Solo Mobile — all brands of Bell Canada (TSX:BCE).Bell said it complies with the law and looks forward to addressing the case in court.“Keep in mind that the threshold for class-action certification is quite low and doesn’t address whether the claim has any merit,” Bell spokeswoman Jacqueline Michelis said in a statement. by The Canadian Press Posted Oct 4, 2013 9:31 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

B.C. signs LNG benefits deals with First Nations on proposed Petronas project by Dirk Meissner, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 15, 2017 3:32 pm MDT Last Updated Feb 16, 2017 at 8:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Lax Kw’alaams Band Mayor John Helin speaks as Premier Christy Clark looks on during a press conference about the province of B.C. and the Lax Kw’alaams Band First Nations announcement of the construction and operation of a liquefied natural gas export industry in Prince Rupert during a press conference in the Legislative Library on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 in Victoria, B.C. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Chad Hipolito VICTORIA – The manager of a proposed liquefied natural gas export plant on British Columbia’s northern coast joined Premier Christy Clark Wednesday in touting two agreements reached with First Nations as important milestones for the project’s future.Clark and Wan Badrul Hisham, Pacific NorthWest LNG’s chief project manager, said the land, cash and environmental agreements are important steps forward.However, neither was prepared to make an official announcement about the project’s future.Malaysian-backed Petronas has yet to make a final investment decision on Pacific NorthWest LNG’s project near Prince Rupert and Clark’s government returned to the legislature Tuesday warning that LNG projects face “unforeseen head winds.”Clark promised billions in liquefied natural gas investments and 100,000 jobs leading up to the 2013 provincial election, but that hasn’t materialized. In November, Woodfibre LNG was the first to announce it was proceeding with a $1.6 billion development near Squamish.The federal government announced in September that after a rigorous environmental review it had approved Pacific NorthWest LNG’s project. It would include an $11 billion plant and pipeline for a total capital investment of $36 billion. The approval came with 190 legally binding conditions that would lessen the environmental impacts of the project.Despite government concerns about downturns in energy markets, Clark said the benefits deals with the Lax Kw’alaams Band and the Metlakatla First Nation mark the co-operative spirit required to pave the way for the project.“All great relationships are founded on trust and respect,” she said. “This is another major step forward for LNG in B.C.”The agreements with the Lax Kw’alaams Band and the Metlakatla First Nation are tied to the project proceeding and include the transfer of about 3,000 hectares of land and almost $145 million.If it goes ahead, the project would create up to 4,500 construction and 350 permanent jobs.Hisham, who attended a signing ceremony at the B.C. legislature, said the benefit deals build long-lasting relationships between the First Nations, the province and his company.“The agreements between Pacific NorthWest LNG and the Metlakatla First Nation and the Lax Kw’alaams First Nation, together with the agreements between the government of B.C. and the First Nations communities will serve as a foundation for a long-term beneficial partnership,” he said.Mayor John Helin of Lax Kw’alaams said their agreement marks the first time his people have been included in developments in their traditional territories.Last month, the two First Nations and the federal and B.C. governments signed an environmental monitoring deal that outlines how the levels of government will oversee environmental issues over the lifetime of the proposed LNG project. read more

However, 72 per cent disagree with the view that “it is a man’s job to earn money and a woman’s job to look after the home and family”, a rise from 58 per cent in 2008.The research also found that while almost one in three 18 to 34-year-olds are very or extremely worried about climate change, they are the group least likely to report that they are doing things to save energy. The study also looked at nationalism in the wake of Brexit, with just 13 per cent of people in England describing themselves as English, not British – the lowest level since 1997. The most popular category is “Equally English and British” at 41 per cent. Women are more likely than men to think cat-calling is acceptable, the British Social Attitudes survey has found. Figures from the study show that while 61 per cent of men think it is “always” or “usually” wrong for a man to comment on a woman’s appearance in the street, just 52 per cent of women agree. When the genders are reversed, around the same proportion of women think it is wrong for a woman to comment on a man’s appearance, while just 35 per cent of men agree. The study, carried out by the National Centre for Social Research, also found that middle-aged men were more likely than men aged 18-34 to say that telling a woman in the street that she looked gorgeous was wrong. Among men aged 55 to 64, 66 per cent said this was wrong, compared to 59 per cent of 18 to 34-year-olds. “In general people are more strongly opposed to comments about women’s appearance than comments about men’s, and this is particularly true of men and younger women. “This may reflect women’s more frequent exposure to remarks about their appearance, especially for young women. “It might also be indicative of heightened awareness of the issues among men and/or a view that women are more likely to feel threatened and so to deserve protection,” the study concluded. The research also found that a majority of people thought mothers of young children should not work full time, with 38 per cent saying they should work part-time and one in three believing they should stay at home.  read more

Professors are also concerned that a huge increase in student numbers will mean they will be expected to spend more time teaching, leaving less time to pursue their research interests.“The essence of a university is that it’s a place of creative thought. If you spend all your time rushing around to give lectures you become like a technical college,” the academic said.“If we are being used to teach – to increase the income of the university – our creative activities are going to be massively compromised.” Professors are concerned that a huge increase in student numbers will mean they will be expected to spend more time teaching The university consulted widely on plans to develop the UCL East campus through a series of town hall meetings, academic board and council votes, he said. A UCL spokesman said they “firmly reject” the suggestion that the expansion is driven by “greed”, adding that they accept all the recommendations of the Visitor’s report and are considering how to implement them.  “We are pleased that he has found no breach of UCL’s constitution and that decisions reached by use of Chair’s actions met the relevant criteria and are valid,” a spokesman said.“We consider the matter now closed and will move on together to improve channels of communication with all parts of our academic community.” Professors at one of the country’s top universities are in open revolt at plans for a major expansion, amid fears that it is driven by institutional “greed” and will lead to a decline in academic standards.The dispute at University College London (UCL) has escalated to such an extent that the most senior civil judge in the country, the Master of the Rolls, has been called in to mediate.The institution is planning its largest expansion since it was founded nearly 200 years ago which will see a multi-million pound investment in building a new campus on the former site of the Olympic Park in Stratford east London.But the proposed UCL East campus has been met with a fierce backlash from some academics who fear the development, which will see thousands more students enrolled, are motivated by financial gain and could see the university reduced to a mere “technical college”.  “We are extremely worried about standards dropping,” one academic told The Sunday Telegraph. “There are only a limited number of really good students. Once you expand you have to drop your standards, then your reputation falls and you are going to be less attractive. These are very dangerous things for an organisation that depends absolutely on its intellectual quality and capabilities.” UCL is one of many universities to undergo massive expansion projects in recent years. The lifting of student number controls in England in 2015 gave universities free rein to recruit as many undergraduates as they see fit.But the move has led to accusations that they now act like businesses, seeking to maximise their revenue by recruiting as many students as possible.  Academics at UCL feel their misgivings about the expansion have been overlooked by the university’s council and management team, with one saying complaining that they have been “marginalised in the pursuit of profit”One professor took the rare step of petitioning the Master of the Rolls, Sir Terence Etherton, who serves as the Visitor to UCL, meaning he can be called in to preside over disputes between academics and the university. Professors are concerned that a huge increase in student numbers will mean they will be expected to spend more time teaching Prof Anthony Regal, UCL’s Dent Professor of Medicine and the director of the Centre for Molecular Medicine, wrote to the Visitor in 2017, asking him to investigate whether the plans had been pushed through “without proper consultation” of the Academic Board.  Sir Terence, who is president of the Civil Division of the Court of Appeal and Head of Civil Justice in England and Wales, commissioned Charles Bourne QC to carry out an independent inquiry into the issues raised by the Petition.The Visitor’s report, submitted to UCL last month, found that there has been no “sustained or intentional infringement” on the university’s constitution.The report noted that it “appears to be a minority” of academics who are concerned, but added that the opposition and “loss of trust and morale among a significant number cannot be simply ignored”.Prof Michael Arthur, the president and provost of UCL, said: “There is absolutely no indication whatsoever that academic standards are being adversely affected.”He said that there is “no question” that the sector is changing, adding: “The increased marketisation is an issue across the whole sector. We no longer receive very much in the way of direct funding for education, and obviously the student tuition fee is a major source of income. There is a really good rational for what we are doing.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

first_img TV and Movies Culture,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not.

first_imgBut her strongest opponent, former El Paso school board president Dori Fenenbock, is also a fundraising heavy weight. She began raising money earlier this year and – between her fundraising and self-funding – sits on $405,462 in cash on hand against Escobar’s $297,056.With Escobar and Fenenbock, both women, appearing to dominate in their primary race to replace O’Rourke, the Democratic-leaning seat will likely produce the first freshman woman from Texas elected to a full term in Congress in 22 years. EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock noted the potential historical nature of Escobar’s campaign. “Poised to be the first Latina from Texas to be elected to Congress, Veronica is an experienced leader who will fight tirelessly to expand economic opportunity for El Paso’s hardworking families and dynamic border communities, and make sure their voices are heard in Washington. EMILY’s List is proud to stand with her,” Schriock said in a statement. Escobar’s first month of campaigning saw other local and national establishment figures support her campaign. O’Rourke endorsed her early on.And in the last month, two members of U.S. House Democratic leadership, U.S. Reps. Linda Sanchez of California and Joe Crowley of New York, donated to her campaign, as did state Sen. José R. Rodríguez, D-El Paso. And Thursday’s endorsement from EMILY’s List comes a day after two other national groups – Latino Victory Fund and End Citizens United – also formally endorsed Escobar.Escobar’s campaign has much more institutional support than the last Texas Latina to make a serious run for a U.S. House seat. Democrat Dolly Elizondo narrowly missed the 2016 Democratic runoff in a bid to represent parts of South Texas in Congress. Vicente Gonzalez, a McAllen Democrat, ultimately won that race.EMILY’s List endorsed Elizondo as well but spent very little on the race. Elizondo earned plenty of attention for her campaign, but most local and Washington power brokers either aligned with her male opponents or ignored her campaign altogether. “I could not be prouder to have the support and encouragement from EMILY’s List for this campaign,” Escobar said in a statement. “The current administration has placed El Paso in a spotlight and I am determined to fight for the people of this community – including our DREAMers – to ensure their rights are protected. EMILY’s List continues to endorse strong, Democratic women who ignite change and I am honored to call them a partner.” TwitterFormer El Paso County Judge Veronica Escobar.Former El Paso County Judge Veronica Escobar just picked up a consequential endorsement in her bid to replace U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, the El Paso Democrat who is making a run for U.S. Senate.Escobar, a Democrat, earned the endorsement of EMILY’s List on Thursday. The organization, which backs female Democratic candidates who support abortion rights, can prove pivotal in Democratic primaries. EMILY’s List – whose acronym stands for “Early Money Is Like Yeast” – focuses on raising money through a vast network of individual donors for candidates it has endorsed. The group also has a massive operation in Washington and can lend organizational support to individual campaigns as well as, in some races, further boost a candidate through spending by a related super PAC.Escobar, who only launched her congressional bid in August, had a solid first quarter in fundraising, with a $332,836 haul. center_img Sharelast_img read more

The image of Bones waving his tricorder in front of some poor redshirt afflicted with an alien plague gave us the fantasy of a non-invasive form of treatment without all those icky fluids and needles.While we’re not quite there yet, the world of medical science is advancing in crazy ways right now. One of the coolest things on the market is the harnessing of the natural world into technology. Instead of making machines from wafers of silicon and wire, we’re creating unique organisms that can serve humanity. Enter the biosensor.Magic InkEssentially, what these things do is take a synthetic biological element – that can be tissue, enzymes, cell receptors, you name it – and bind them to a mechanically engineered component. The biological element reacts to the thing you’re trying to measure in the human body and the other piece translates it into a form we can understand. It’s truly the best of both worlds.MIT and Harvard recently worked together to develop a biosensor tattoo that can detect blood glucose levels in type 1 diabetics. Glucose is a pretty easily measurable substance, but this opens the door to more subtle and unusual tests. Imagine having all of your body’s vitals displayed on your skin like a living display so you can monitor your mental and physical state in real time.One of the most promising directions that biosensors can help in is in cancer detection and treatment. The single most important factor in cancer patients across all types of the disease is how early it’s detected. Given time, it’s more likely to metastasize to other parts of the body. Catching it at its point of origin makes surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy significantly more successful.The Walnut Of LifeFor men, prostate cancer is one of the scariest forms of the disease. The prostate is a walnut-sized gland that sits below the bladder and produces the fluid that your sperm swim around in. It’s an important organ but hard to monitor due to its position.Cancer of the prostate is the second most common cancer in men (after only the skin). One in seven men will be diagnosed with it during their lifetime. Unfortunately, the testing process has traditionally been significantly invasive, requiring rectal exams and blood tests. Rectal exams are typically done with a gloved finger and aren’t 100% effective, being dependent on the doctor’s sense of touch. Blood tests are better, but an enlarged prostate for other reasons can give false positives. The final step is usually a combination of a biopsy and an ultrasound. Most doctors don’t advise even having that discussion until the age of 50 unless the patient has a family history of the disease or is of African descent (a population which for some reason seems vulnerable earlier).In The BloodThe presence of the EN2 protein in the urine can be a sign of prostate cancer, but the most reliable way to spot it early is a blood test for prostate-specific antigen (PSA). Previously, this required a visit to the doctor that could be expensive and time-consuming. The blood in your body is a complex ecosystem host to hundreds of different chemicals and proteins in varying quantities, and PSA only shows up in a fraction of it.One recent experiment from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne looked to simplify that process using biosensors with custom-coded DNA. The prostate cancer test involved a silicon nanowire coated with engineered DNA that trapped only the biomarkers that indicate the presence of the disease. The nanowire has to be placed in a blood sample for an hour to give it enough time to accrete molecules, then it’s dried and an electrical current is run through it. The resistance on that current can be translated into the density of PSA. Sure, the response time isn’t great, but it’s significantly faster and potentially more cost-effective than existing tests.A lab at Rutgers is working on a technology that could lead to a “lab on a chip” that uses synthesized biomarkers to detect a wide variety of things. One of the potential uses mentioned by the doctors responsible is the creation of a portable PSA test kit that could be used at home with a small blood draw, like the kind from a fingerprick glucose kit.Nature’s BiosensorInterestingly enough, nature has actually developed its own biosensor for cancer – a dog’s nose. We all know that the sense of smell in a canine is several orders of magnitude higher than a human’s, but scientists are starting to learn that they can use that trait for more than finding weed in people’s carry-on luggage. Trained dogs have a 95% success rate in sensing prostate cancer. In addition to having significantly more smell sensors, dogs are also equipped with something called a Jacobson’s organ, which runs a separate, parallel system of molecule recognition for substances that have no detectable odor.That kind of molecular sensing and filtering is exactly what manufactured biosensors are trying to accomplish – taking the delicate biological detection mechanisms that evolution has had tens of thousands of years to develop and turning them into precision analytic devices. Couple this with new treatment modalities like Zytiga (a recently-unveiled drug from Johnson & Johnson that works on advanced prostate cancer that has proven resistant to other methods) and you have a more positive prognosis than ever before.While we’re still a ways off from the Tricorder, being able to screen for diseases with a finger prick is a lot easier than heading to the clinic and having your blood drawn. And as biosensors become more subtle and specialized, it won’t be long before new and different ways of deploying them become common practice. Like the tattoo that displays your blood glucose, it’s feasible that at birth infants will be outfitted with a whole panel of skin sensors for their health, sending visible warnings about cancer and a host of other diseases.

Credit: UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research Center/Nature Communications News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more May 10, 2019 — Patients with advanced Hodgkin’s lymphoma who have large tumors at the time of diagnosis may benefit from radiotherapy after chemotherapy, even when all traces of the cancer appear to have gone. These findings are according to late-breaking results presented at the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) 38 conference, April 26-30 in Milan, Italy.Approximately 65-70 percent of patients with advanced stage Hodgkin’s lymphoma can be cured by receiving six cycles of ABVD chemotherapy — which includes doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine and dacarbazine — with or without subsequent radiotherapy. Currently, however, the addition of radiotherapy is controversial.In a statement before the conference, Mario Levis, M.D., a co-author of the study, who is a radiation oncologist at the University of Turin, Italy, explained: “These patients can often have four or five decades of life expectancy ahead of them but, given this cure rate, the cancer treatment can result in a high risk of complications for many long-term survivors. For this reason, it’s important that we give patients the most effective treatment for curing their cancer, while, at the same time, trying to keep the toxic side effects to a minimum.”To investigate whether radiotherapy after ABVD chemotherapy provided any benefit to these patients, researchers in several centers in Italy, led by Prof. Pier Luigi Zinzani, of the Institute of Haematology at the University of Bologna, and Prof. Umberto Ricardi, head of the Department of Oncology at the University of Turin and president of ESTRO, recruited 512 patients between 2008 and 2013 to a randomized clinical trial, HD0801.Patients who had been treated successfully in the earlier, phase II part of the trial, and in whom positron emission tomography (PET) scans showed no trace of cancer both during and at the end of chemotherapy, were randomized to the phase III part of the trial to receive either radiotherapy in order to mop up any remaining cancer cells, or no further treatment.In total, 354 patients had PET scans showing they were clear of cancer after the initial treatment. Of these, 116 (32.7 percent) had had large lesions (greater than 5cm in diameter) at the time of their diagnosis, and they were assigned to radiotherapy or no further treatment.Levis and Ricardi found that more patients were alive three and five years later without their disease getting worse (known as progression-free survival) if they had been treated with radiotherapy than those who did not receive it.Ricardi told the conference, “We found that three years later 92 percent of patients who received radiotherapy were still alive without disease progression compared to 82 percent of patients who did not receive it. After five years, these figures were 89 percent and 82 percent respectively. This suggests that patients with large tumors, who have responded to six cycles of ABVD chemotherapy, may still benefit from the addition of radiotherapy, with a survival benefit ranging from 7  to 10 percent at three and five years.”This is something that should be considered carefully when deciding whether or not to give radiotherapy to these patients. The omission of radiotherapy would guarantee the prevention of radiation-induced toxic side effects, but, on the other hand, it exposes 10 percent of our, frequently young, patients to an increased risk of relapse and of even higher toxicity due to the heavy salvage therapies required when the disease returns,” concluded Ricardi.Nine patients who had been enrolled in the radiotherapy arm of the trial did not actually receive radiation treatment due to decisions made by their doctors, and the disease returned in five of them. This meant that when the data on the 116 patients were analyzed according to “intention to treat” (i.e. regardless of whether or not they had actually received the radiotherapy), there was little difference between the two groups in progression-free survival at three and five years. It was only when the researchers analyzed the data according to the treatments the patients had actually received (a “per protocol” analysis) that it was possible to see the benefit on survival for those treated with radiotherapy, although this was not statistically significant. This was mainly because of the small number of patients in whom the disease returned: five in the radiotherapy arm and 13 in the ‘no further treatment’ arm of the trial.”The results of this trial do not provide definitive evidence on the role of radiotherapy after chemotherapy for patients with advanced Hodgkin’s lymphoma and large tumors. However, the improvement in survival among those who did receive radiotherapy is not negligible. We think that the next step is for a meta-analysis of this and similar randomized trials in order to increase the robustness of the information we have on the best way to treat this disease,” concluded Ricardi.Prof. Yolande Lievens, past-president of ESTRO and head of the department of radiation oncology at Ghent University Hospital, Belgium, said, “As physicians our main aim is to treat our patients effectively while keeping any adverse side-effects from the treatment to the minimum. This is especially important for patients with a disease such as Hodgkin’s lymphoma, many of whom can expect to be cured and live long after their treatment has finished. The results from this trial provide us with additional, important information to take into account when advising our patients on what might be the best treatment.”For more information: www.estro.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content News | Patient Positioning Radiation Therapy | August 07, 2019 Qfix kVue One Proton Couch Top Validated by Mevion Medical Systems Qfix and Mevion Medical Systems announced that a special version of the kVue One Proton couch top is now both validated… read morelast_img read more
