Analysis of Several Common APOBEC-type Mutations in Bladder Tumors Suggests Links to Viral Infection
Tobacco smoking likely causes one of the most common mutations in bladder tumors (FGFR3-Y375C), while viral infections might contribute to three others (FGFR3-S249C, PIK3CA-E542K, and PIK3CA-E545K). Understanding the causes of these mutations may lead to new prevention and treatment strategies, such as viral screening and vaccination.
Psychosocial Risk Profiles and Colorectal Cancer Screening: A Latent Profile Analysis in a Colorectal Cancer Screening Intervention Setting
This LPA analysis provides some direction for tailoring colorectal cancer educational interventions to improve the benefits and barriers among individuals with high susceptibility scores in hard-to-screen populations such as our border population.
Examining the Barriers and Opportunities for Human Papillomavirus Vaccine Delivery in Cancer Care Settings: A Mixed-Methods Study
This mixed-methods study is the first to investigate and assess barriers and opportunities for HPV vaccine delivery among PAYA cancer healthcare providers. Our findings can serve as an important framework for future implementation research targeted towards HPV vaccine delivery in cancer clinical settings.
