1721. Clinical practice guidelines for the management of early breast cancer

demonstrate a reduction in DCIS recurrence and invasive breast cancer if radiotherapy is performed after local excision for DCIS (Level II). 38,41,42 Axillary lymph node dissection is not necessary in the management of most patients with DCIS. 43 Chemotherapy has never been investigated or used in the treatment of DCIS. Recent evidence indicates that the use of tamoxifen in women with DCIS in the adjuvant setting reduces the risk of DCIS recurrence and invasive breast cancer (Level II). 44 Women should (...) as the only abnormality following a surgical breast biopsy. Close surveillance, including frequent clinical examination and bilateral mammography, supplemented by ultrasound if indicated, appears to be the best management option currently available. Atypical hyperplasia (AH) refers to the proliferation of atypical cells in the breast epithelium. AH has been further sub-classified into atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH) and atypical lobular hyperplasia (ALH). The cells in ADH are similar to those in DCIS

especially when these pose emotional stress. Participation in communication skills training also appears to be a valuable strategy, given evidence that those health professionals who feel insufficiently trained in communication and management skills have higher levels of stress. 35 It may be necessary for health professionals to challenge unrealistic expectations of professional performance. Investing in interpersonal relationships is likely to improve coping ability, since supportive relationships

Evaluation of nutritional intake in Canadian high-performance athletes. To determine the nutritional intake of Canadian high-performance athletes.Prospective survey study.Canadian sport center athletes.Three hundred twenty-four high-performance athletes (114 males and 201 females; mean age 21.3 +/- 13 years) from 8 Canadian sport centers participated in the study.Subjects prospectively completed 3-day dietary records, reporting all food, fluid, and supplement consumption.Dietary records were (...) daily carbohydrate and protein intake was 5.1 +/- 1.8 and 1.8 +/- 0.6 g/kg body weight, respectively. Protein intake, but not carbohydrate intake, met recommendations. Supplementation significantly increased athletes' energy, total carbohydrate, protein, and fat intake.

evaluation should be performed on an obese patient starting a weight loss regimen if this has not been done within the past year. The medical history and physical exam should focus on causes and complications of obesity. BMI should be calculated and waist circumference measured to better assess risk and to offer measures of outcome in addition to weight loss. Although the causes of obesity are not fully known, certain factors clearly play a role. Family history is important because of the strong (...) - stimulating hormone, or full thyroid function tests. A recent baseline electrocardiogram should be available; if not, it should be performed. Other laboratory studies should be performed on the basis of findings from the initial evaluation.

1732. Creatine Treatment in Psychiatric Disorders

Study Details Study Description Go to Brief Summary: Creatine plays a pivotal role in brain energy homeostasis. Creatine supplementation is widely used in enhancing sports performance, and has been tried in the treatment of neurological, neuromuscular and atherosclerotic disease with a paucity of side effects. Dechent et al (1999) studied the effect of oral creatine supplementation for 4 wk demonstrating a statistically significant increase of mean concentration of total creatine across brain (...) regions. These findings suggest the possibility of using oral creatine supplementation to modify brain high-energy phosphate metabolism in subjects with various brain disorders, including schizophrenia and major depression. Recently, Rae et al (2003) reported that creatine supplementation for 6 weeks had a significant positive effect on both working memory and Raven matrices. Several independent lines of evidence suggest the possible involvement of altered cerebral energy metabolism in schizophrenia

Creatine use and exercise heat tolerance in dehydrated men. Creatine monohydrate (CrM) use is highly prevalent in team sports (eg, football, lacrosse, ice hockey) and by athletes at the high school, college, professional, and recreational levels.

1736. An exercise protocol that simulates the activity patterns of elite junior squash. (PubMed)

An exercise protocol that simulates the activity patterns of elite junior squash. Squash is a popular racket sport that requires intermittent activity with frequent bursts of near maximal-intensity exercise. Consequently, effective physiological and thermoregulatory responses are important contributors to performance during squash match-play. Controlled field-based simulation protocols have been introduced in a growing number of sports, which allow sports scientists to investigate changes (...) in physiology and the efficacy of various interventions in sport-specific contexts. This study aimed to develop an exercise protocol that simulates the physiological requirements of elite squash match-play. Eight elite junior squash players (age 16.2+/-0.8 years, height 1.76+/-0.06 m, body mass 61.3+/-5.9 kg; mean+/-s) completed the following in a randomized order: (1) a squash match against a player of similar standard and (2) a squash-specific incremental exercise protocol (multistage squash test [MST
