2. Upper Limit for TSH of First and Second Trimester Pregnancy in Turkey

Sponsor: Bartin State Hospital Information provided by (Responsible Party): Murat Yassa, Bartin State Hospital Study Details Study Description Go to Brief Summary: Physiological changes necessitate the use of pregnancy-specific reference ranges for TSH and FT4 to diagnose thyroid dysfunction during pregnancy. Although many centers use fixed upper limits for TSH of 2.5 or 3.0 mU/L, this may lead to overdiagnosis or even overtreatment. The new guidelines of the American Thyroid Association have

3. Harms of Hepatocellular Carcinoma Surveillance

a multi-center randomized controlled trial assessing screening benefits in a socioeconomically and racially diverse population of 3,000 patients with cirrhosis followed in 3 healthcare settings over a 4-year period, this study aims to: Aim 1: Assess the effect of hepatocellular carcinoma screening on a) physical harms due to follow-up tests, b) financial harms, and c) overdiagnosis in patients with severe liver dysfunction or comorbid illness, through electronic medical record data, manual chart (...) of costs per person. Degree of financial harms will be compared between the hepatocellular carcinoma screening and usual care arms using Student T test, with a secondary analysis stratified by health system. In a secondary analysis, a mixed-effect model approach will be employed to identify patient-, provider- and system-level factors associated with financial harm.

4. A Randomized Trial of Early Detection of Clinically Significant Prostate Cancer (ProScreen)

-based randomised trial of prostate cancer screening will be carried out. A total of approximately 67,000 men aged 50-63 in Helsinki and Tampere are randomised to intervention (screening) or control arm. A reduction in harms of screening in the form of overdiagnosis is sought, while retaining as much as possible of the mortality benefit (reduction in prostate cancer mortality). Novel methods that have been shown to increase specificity for clinically relevant prostate cancer but never tested (...) . The project introduces a novel concept for PC screening that minimises overdiagnosis and overtreatment, while retaining the mortality benefit to shift the balance of screening benefits and harms to a favourable net effect. The strategy for implementation as a randomised screening trial utilises three levels of risk assessment (PSA, kallikrein panel and MRI) before the diagnostic procedure (prostate biopsy), each aimed at eliminating detection of indolent disease. The study hypothesis is that by virtue

chance of experiencing the life prolonging benefits of cancer screening and instead may only experience harm from being screened. The most concerning harm of cancer screening is overdiagnosis - the diagnosis and treatment of cancers that otherwise would not have caused problems in an older adult's lifetime. Despite this, around half of adults >75 years with <10 year life expectancy are regularly screened for cancer. One reason for the overuse of these tests is that PCPs feel uncomfortable discussing

Impairment) can precede AD for 15 years. However, many individuals diagnosed with MCI do not convert to AD, some remaining stable and others even reversing back to normal (with rates of reversion to normal varying from 4.5% to as high as 53%). This over-diagnosis bias, which has been largely overlooked, is at the core of the present project at the interface of human and life sciences. Here, we argue that an important source of overdiagnosis in the prodromal state of AD comes from negative aging

9. Decision-aid on Breast Cancer Screening

Description: Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. In Italy, women are invited to a population-based mammography screening programme for the first time at the age of 45 or 50 years. Results from randomised controlled trials, observational studies, and systematic reviews continuously fuel the debate on the balance on benefits (reducing breast cancer mortality) and harms (overdiagnosis, overtreatment) of mammography screening. Physicians, policy makers, as well as laypeople or patient (...) information and an aid for the decision to be taken. The content is splitted in 16-20 screens; each screen contains the answer to a common question (i.e. What is mammography screening? What are its benefits and harms? What results can be expected from the participation to mammography screening? What is breast cancer?). The information covers also controversial topics as overdiagnosis, overtreatment and the disagreement among scientists about harms and benefits' quantification. Active Comparator: Standard

accurate diagnostic approach that can ensure early detection of aggressive PC while curable, reduce unnecessary prostate biopsies incl. risk of sepsis and reduce overdiagnosis/-treatment of indolent PC. New molecular biomarkers applied in general practice, serving as a pre-selection test for follow-up, and accurate and patient-friendly MR-imaging and MR-targeted biopsy at the hospital may help to solve these problems.
