Whole-genome sequencing in triple-negative breast cancer supports the prognostic value of the HRDetect mutational-signature-based algorithm for improving patient stratification in a real-world, population-based clinical diagnostic setting.
Thread by @StoverLab: "This is treatment for : 1) Patient with new metastatic disease. Evidence-based treatment recommended. 2) All documentad and submitted with with published evidence as part of Prior authorization. Aggregate provider time: 35...
A study finds evidence for how to reduce some of it, but also a large blind spot on how to remove the rest.
Daniel Stover, MDThe administrative waste in healthcare costs $billions, gets in the way of timely & effective care, and reduces job satisfaction for providers.
This is a fix we can get behind - Let’s start there.
The Huge Waste in the U.S. Health System
It is difficult to discern the relative contributions of ultraviolet-A (UVA; 320-400nm) and ultraviolet-B (UVB; 280-320nm) radiation to human melanoma development. Here, we compared the tumorigenic consequences of a single UVA or UVB exposure in...
One of the country’s fastest-growing cities has seen a surge in homegrown distilleries that are drawing customers with tasting rooms, restaurants and bottle shops.

High-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) is often sensitive to initial treatment with platinum and taxane combination chemotherapy, but most patients relapse with chemotherapy-resistant disease. To systematically identify genes modulating...
Integrating different types of data, including electronic health records, imaging data, administrative and claims databases, large data repositories, the Internet of Things, genomics, and other omics data, is both a challenge and an opportunity that...
Nancy Brown, MD, Hugh J. Morgan Professor and chair of the Department of Medicine in the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, has been named dean of the Yale School of Medicine. She will join Yale on Feb. 1, 2020.
Daniel Stover, MDHad the honor of serving as Dr. Brown’s Chief Resident in her 1st year as Chair of Medicine @VUMChealth
She is a remarkable intellect, a thoughtful leader, & a dedicated mentor.
@YaleMed made a good choice for their next (1st female) Dean!
A Nature analysis finds that several fields of science are moving away from male-dominated conferences and panels — but it’s easy to slip back into old habits.
Daniel Stover, MDWith important moves away from 'manels' and 'manfrences' (see @nature commentary below), I reviewed our speaker list for our monthly @OSUCCC_James Breast Cancer Research Conference and the results are in:
All great speakers
It took Blake Anderson's wife, Wendy, almost walking out on him for the longtime football coach to prioritize his family. Those values became even more important during her battle with cancer.
Daniel Stover, MDHeartbreaking story of life, love, loss & triple-negative breast cancer.
It's because of stories like this - and my own patients' stories - that @StoverLab & so many colleagues desperately seek new ways to understand and treat #tnbc + all #mbc.
For their invention of Herceptin, the first monoclonal antibody that blocks a cancer-causing protein, and for its development as a life-saving therapy for women with breast cancer
Daniel Stover, MDLasker-Debakey Clinical Award to Shepard/Slamon/Ullrich for development of trastuzumab/Herceptin
-Cured countless women
-Extended lives, improved QOL for innumerable #MBC patients
-Fundamentally changed understanding of HER2 biology
Still more to do!
Direct prospective comparison of circulating tumor DNA and tissue biopsy sequencing shows the superiority of liquid biopsies for capturing clinically relevant alterations mediating resistance to targeted therapies in cancer patients.
