What is Trip?
Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.
Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.
As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

Phthalate Exposure and BreastCancer Incidence: A Danish Nationwide Cohort Study Phthalate exposure is ubiquitous and especially high among users of drug products formulated with phthalates. Some phthalates mimic estradiol and may promote breastcancer. Existing epidemiologic studies on this topic are small, mostly not prospective, and have given inconsistent results. We estimated associations between longitudinal phthalate exposures and breastcancer risk in a Danish nationwide cohort, using (...) then fit multivariable Cox regression models to estimate associations between phthalate exposures and incident invasive breast carcinoma according to tumor estrogen receptor status.Over 9.99 million woman-years of follow-up, most phthalate exposures were not associated with breastcancer incidence. High-level dibutyl phthalate exposure (≥ 10,000 cumulative mg) was associated with an approximately two-fold increase in the rate of estrogen receptor-positive breastcancer (hazard ratio, 1.9; 95% CI, 1.1

Alpelisib for PIK3CA-Mutated, Hormone Receptor-Positive Advanced BreastCancer. PIK3CA mutations occur in approximately 40% of patients with hormone receptor (HR)-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative breastcancer. The PI3Kα-specific inhibitor alpelisib has shown antitumor activity in early studies.In a randomized, phase 3 trial, we compared alpelisib (at a dose of 300 mg per day) plus fulvestrant (at a dose of 500 mg every 28 days and once on day 15 (...) ) with placebo plus fulvestrant in patients with HR-positive, HER2-negative advanced breastcancer who had received endocrine therapy previously. Patients were enrolled into two cohorts on the basis of tumor-tissue PIK3CA mutation status. The primary end point was progression-free survival, as assessed by the investigator, in the cohort with PIK3CA-mutated cancer; progression-free survival was also analyzed in the cohort without PIK3CA-mutated cancer. Secondary end points included overall response
Breastcancer risk in transgender people receiving hormone treatment: nationwide cohort study in the Netherlands. To investigate the incidence and characteristics of breastcancer in transgender people in the Netherlands compared with the general Dutch population.Retrospective, nationwide cohort study.Specialised tertiary gender clinic in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.2260 adult trans women (male sex assigned at birth, female gender identity) and 1229 adult trans men (female sex assigned at birth (...) , male gender identity) who received gender affirming hormone treatment.Incidence and characteristics (eg, histology, hormone receptor status) of breastcancer in transgender people.The total person time in this cohort was 33 991 years for trans women and 14 883 years for trans men. In the 2260 trans women in the cohort, 15 cases of invasive breastcancer were identified (median duration of hormone treatment 18 years, range 7-37 years). This was 46-fold higher than in cisgender men (standardised

10-year performance of four models of breastcancer risk: a validation study Independent validation is essential to justify use of models of breastcancer risk prediction and inform decisions about prevention options and screening. Few independent validations had been done using cohorts for common breastcancer risk prediction models, and those that have been done had small sample sizes and short follow-up periods, and used earlier versions of the prediction tools. We aimed to validate (...) the relative performance of four commonly used models of breastcancer risk and assess the effect of limited data input on each one's performance.In this validation study, we used the BreastCancer Prospective Family Study Cohort (ProF-SC), which includes 18 856 women from Australia, Canada, and the USA who did not have breastcancer at recruitment, between March 17, 1992, and June 29, 2011. We selected women from the cohort who were 20-70 years old and had no previous history of bilateral prophylactic
Palbociclib Plus Letrozole as First-Line Therapy in Postmenopausal Asian Women With Metastatic BreastCancer: Results From the Phase III, Randomized PALOMA-2 Study. In PALOMA-2, palbociclib plus letrozole significantly improved progression-free survival (PFS) as initial treatment of estrogen receptor-positive/human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative advanced breastcancer. We assessed the benefit of palbociclib plus letrozole in Asians.Of 666 enrolled postmenopausal women with estrogen (...) receptor-positive/human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative advanced breastcancer (no prior treatment of advanced disease), 95 were Asian. Patients were randomly assigned 2:1 to receive palbociclib plus letrozole or placebo plus letrozole. The primary end point was investigator-assessed PFS. Secondary end points were overall survival, objective response, patient-reported outcomes, pharmacokinetics, and safety.Median PFS was significantly longer in Asian patients who received palbociclib plus

Risk-reducing medications for primary breastcancer: a network meta-analysis. Breastcancer is the most frequently occurring malignancy and the second cause of death for cancer in women. Cancer prevention agents (CPAs) are a promising approach to reduce the burden of breastcancer. Currently, two main types of CPAs are available: selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs, such as tamoxifen and raloxifene) and aromatase inhibitors (AIs, such as exemestane and anastrozole).To assess (...) the efficacy and acceptability of single CPAs for the prevention of primary breastcancer, in unaffected women, at an above-average risk of developing breast cancer.Using a network meta-analysis, to rank single CPAs, based on their efficacy and acceptability (an endpoint that is defined as the inverse of CPA-related toxicity).We searched the Cochrane BreastCancer Specialised Register, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), MEDLINE, Embase, World Health Organization's International
Screening for BreastCancer in Average-Risk Women: A Guidance Statement From the American College of Physicians. The purpose of this guidance statement is to provide advice to clinicians on breastcancer screening in average-risk women based on a review of existing guidelines and the evidence they include.This guidance statement is derived from an appraisal of selected guidelines from around the world that address breastcancer screening, as well as their included evidence. All national (...) is all clinicians, and the target patient population is all asymptomatic women with average risk for breast cancer.In average-risk women aged 40 to 49 years, clinicians should discuss whether to screen for breastcancer with mammography before age 50 years. Discussion should include the potential benefits and harms and a woman's preferences. The potential harms outweigh the benefits in most women aged 40 to 49 years.In average-risk women aged 50 to 74 years, clinicians should offer screening
