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.

2. Seaweed Consumption and Its Effect on Breast Cancer

Seaweed Consumption and Its Effect on Breast Cancer "Seaweed Consumption and Its Effect on Breast Cancer" by Alyssa MouaLee and Thanita Pradhanang < > > > > > Title Author Date of Graduation Summer 8-10-2019 Degree Type Capstone Project Degree Name Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies Rights . Abstract Background: Breast cancer remains the most common cancer in women worldwide. Interestingly, breast cancer incidence varies dramatically among countries. Japan, in particular, has (...) relatively low breast cancer (BC) rates when compared to those in Western countries. Daily consumption of seaweed has been proposed as one of the factors in explaining the difference in incidence rates of BC. The high concentrations of polysaccharides in seaweed have been reported in many studies to have anti-cancer effects as well as chemoprotective effects. The aim for this review is to look at the potential benefits of seaweed consumption and its effect on breast cancer. Methods: Exhaustive search

4. Association Between Adjuvant Chemotherapy Duration and Survival Among Patients With Stage II and III Colon Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

Association Between Adjuvant Chemotherapy Duration and Survival Among Patients With Stage II and III Colon Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis The results from the recent International Duration Evaluation of Adjuvant Therapy (IDEA) collaboration have led some clinicians to adopt shorter durations of adjuvant chemotherapy for patients with stage III colon cancer. The extent to which these findings are supported by other data is unknown.To conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis (...) of randomized and observational studies investigating the association between the duration of adjuvant chemotherapy and survival among individuals diagnosed as having stage II and III colon cancer (PROSPERO protocol CRD42018108711]).Abstracts published in English between 2003 and 2018 within the MEDLINE, Embase, CENTRAL, and CINAHL databases were reviewed by 2 authors.

6. Clinical and Genomic Risk to Guide the Use of Adjuvant Therapy for Breast Cancer. (PubMed)

Clinical and Genomic Risk to Guide the Use of Adjuvant Therapy for Breast Cancer. The use of adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with breast cancer may be guided by clinicopathological factors and a score based on a 21-gene assay to determine the risk of recurrence. Whether the level of clinical risk of breast cancer recurrence adds prognostic information to the recurrence score is not known.We performed a prospective trial involving 9427 women with hormone-receptor-positive, human epidermal (...) growth factor receptor 2-negative, axillary node-negative breast cancer, in whom an assay of 21 genes had been performed, and we classified the clinical risk of recurrence of breast cancer as low or high on the basis of the tumor size and histologic grade. The effect of clinical risk was evaluated by calculating hazard ratios for distant recurrence with the use of Cox proportional-hazards models. The initial endocrine therapy was tamoxifen alone in the majority of the premenopausal women who were 50

Alpelisib for PIK3CA-Mutated, Hormone Receptor-Positive Advanced Breast Cancer. PIK3CA mutations occur in approximately 40% of patients with hormone receptor (HR)-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative breast cancer. 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 breast cancer 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

15. Medical interventions for the prevention of platinum-induced hearing loss in children with cancer. (PubMed)

Medical interventions for the prevention of platinum-induced hearing loss in children with cancer. Platinum-based therapy, including cisplatin, carboplatin, oxaliplatin or a combination of these, is used to treat a variety of paediatric malignancies. One of the most significant adverse effects is the occurrence of hearing loss or ototoxicity. In an effort to prevent this ototoxicity, different otoprotective medical interventions have been studied. This review is the third update of a previously (...) published Cochrane Review.To assess the efficacy of medical interventions to prevent hearing loss and to determine possible effects of these interventions on antitumour efficacy, toxicities other than hearing loss and quality of life in children with cancer treated with platinum-based therapy as compared to placebo, no additional treatment or another protective medical intervention.We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, MEDLINE (PubMed) and Embase (Ovid) to 8 January 2019.

For radiotherapy treatment planning in patients with anal cancer, FDG PET-CT should be considered as an adjunct to clinical assessment and MRI or CT imaging. It is not possible to provide advice on the use of FDG PET-CT for monitoring of treatment response in patients with anal cancer due to a lack of studies assessing this outcome. There is uncertainty about the balance of costs and benefits of FDG PET-CT for anal cancer due to a lack of published cost effectiveness studies
