What was your experience with the financial costs of cancer treatment?

This study, conducted by researchers at the University of Louisville, is about the impact of cancer treatment on the financial well-being and quality of life of cancer survivors.

We are inviting volunteers who have been diagnosed with breast cancer or blood (Leukemia, Lymphoma, or Myeloma) cancer within the past five years to participate in this study.

This study is open to men and women 18 years and older. It involves taking a 20-30 minute online survey and it is completely anonymous.

By better understanding your experiences we may be able to help others navigate the financial terrain of cancer.

If interested in participating follow this link to the survey.

The Psycho-Oncology Research Group of NUI Galway (Ireland) are carrying out a study that explores men's experience of prostate cancer. Completing this 10-minute anonymous survey will help us to better understand the changes men might experience following the difficult time of prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment. A better understanding of this experience will enable us to help future patients manage the impact of the illness. 

 If you have experienced prostate cancer, please consider completing this short survey. The questionnaire is completed entirely online in one session and gathers information about mens personal experience of prostate cancer. Further information about the study and contact information for the researchers can be found at this link:

Dear Prostate Cancer Patients:

If you are gay or bisexual man, between the age of 18 and 75, and have been previously treated for prostate cancer, we would like to invite you to participate in our current research study.

Twenty minutes to one hour of your time may influence treatment of future patients.

There is a significant knowledge gap concerning sexual function for prostate cancer patients in the men who have sex with men (MSM) community, because all of the existing assessment tools are designed for the heterosexual population. The goal of this study is to develop a survey to assess sexual function after prostate cancer treatment specific for MSM. Increased knowledge in this area can help guide future patients in treatment decisions.

Your participation will involve completion of a set of questions online. Your response can help us refine this list and develop the survey. No personal information will be collected in the survey and all your response will be kept confidential. This study is being supported by the UBC British Columbia Cancer Agency Research Ethics Board.

Please consider participating in this important study by following the link:

If you need any further information, please contact our study coordinator Dr. Erik Wibowo at erik.w@dal.ca

We look forward to hearing from you.

A study to bank blood and tissue samples for future evaluation to identify genetic mutations and other biomarkers that predispose inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients to developing Hepatosplenic T-Cell Lymphoma (HSTCL). Samples will be obtained from patients who have Crohn's Disease (CD) or Ulcerative Colitis (UC), who have been treated with adalimumab and diagnosed with HSTCL. 

Inclusion Criteria:

1. Male or female who has received a single dose of HUMIRA prior to a confirmed diagnosis of HSTCL.

2. Confirmed diagnosis of CD or UC as documented by a Gastroenterologist or physician who diagnosed the CD or UC.

3. Confirmed diagnosis of HSTCL as determined by a biopsy performed on a specimen taken from the patient.

4. Patients 18 years old and older must voluntarily sign and date an IRB/EC approved Informed Consent Form. For patients younger than 18 years old, a parent or legal guardian is required to voluntarily sign and date an IRB/EC approved Informed Consent Form. Pediatric patients will be included in all discussions if possible, in order to obtain their assent.

Exclusion Criteria:

1.  Male or female who has not received at least a single dose of adalimumab prior to a confirmed diagnosis of HSTCL.

2. Unconfirmed diagnosis of HSTCL, CD or UC, respectively.

3. The patient or the patient's HCP is unwilling to participate in this study. 

4. The parents or legal guardians (in the case of patients younger than 18 years of age), who are unable and/or unwilling to consent to the patient's participation in this study.
