According to the U.S. Supreme Court, juveniles are different than adults when it comes to criminal culpability. This has ramifications at sentencing. For example, sentencing a person to death for a capital offense violates the Eighth Amendment's prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment if the person was younger than 18 years old at the time of the offense. But why are juveniles different? That is the topic of this episode. Robert is joined by Dr. Robert Kinscherff, executive director of the Center for Law, Brain, and Behavior at Massachusetts General Hospital, and Judge Jay Blitzman, law professor and interim executive director of the Massachusetts Advocates for Children.

Dr. Beverly Moy is back on the ASCO Guidelines Podcast to discuss the latest guideline rapid recommendation update regarding sacituzumab govitecan for patients with hormone receptor-positive HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer based on recent evidence published in TROPiCS-02. Dr. Moy reviews how this update intersects with the previous rapid recommendation update on trastuzumab deruxtecan and future areas of research that may impact further updates to this evidence-based guideline. Read the latest update, "Chemotherapy and Targeted Therapy for Endocrine-Pretreated or Hormone Receptor–Negative Metastatic Breast Cancer: ASCO Guideline Rapid Recommendation Update" at www.asco.org/breast-cancer-guidelines. TRANSCRIPT Brittany Harvey: Hello and welcome to the ASCO Guidelines podcast, one of ASCO's podcasts delivering timely information to keep you up to date on the latest changes, challenges, and advances in oncology. You can find all the shows, including this one at asco.org/podcasts.   My name is Brittany Harvey and today I'm interviewing Dr. Beverly Moy from Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, lead author on ‘Chemotherapy and Targeted Therapy for Endocrine-Pretreated or Hormone Receptor–Negative Metastatic Breast Cancer: ASCO Guideline Rapid Recommendation Update'. Thank you for being here, Dr. Moy. Dr. Beverly Moy: Thank you for having me, Brittany. I'm glad to be here. Brittany Harvey: Then first, I'd like to note that ASCO takes great care in the development of its guidelines and ensuring that the ASCO conflict of interest policy is followed for each guideline. The full conflict of interest information for this guideline panel is available in line with the publication of the guideline in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. Dr. Moy, do you have any relevant disclosures that are directly related to this guideline topic? Dr. Beverly Moy: I do not have any relevant disclosures. Brittany Harvey: It's great to have you back on the podcast. Last we spoke, we were discussing the July 2022 rapid update of this guideline regarding the use of trastuzumab deruxtecan. What prompted the second rapid update to the guideline? Dr. Beverly Moy: Thank you very much for that question, Brittany. The guidelines committee decided to issue another rapid guideline update because of the second interim analysis results of the TROPiCS-02 trial. This trial showed that sacituzumab govitecan had a significant improvement of over three months in overall survival compared to chemotherapy of physician's choice in patients with pretreated metastatic hormone receptor positive and HER2/neu-negative breast cancer. So we felt that the strength of this data compelled the ASCO guideline ommittee to issue yet another update. Brittany Harvey: Understood. So then, based off this strong data that you just mentioned from TROPiCS-02, what is the updated recommendation from the guideline expert panel? Dr. Beverly Moy: So the guidelines expert panel really wanted to get this information out because we felt compelled that clinicians should be aware that sacituzumab govitecan is another treatment option for patients with endocrine-resistant metastatic hormone receptor- positive and HER2-negative breast cancer. So we felt that clinicians may use this drug in patients who have received at least two prior treatments in a metastatic setting. Brittany Harvey: Okay, you just mentioned this is one of several treatment options. So as this new recommendation is implemented, what should clinicians know? Dr. Beverly Moy: So, I think that clinicians really need to be aware that sacituzumab govitecan, which is a newer drug, as an antibody drug conjugate, it really does have a role in patients with metastatic hormone receptor positive, HER2/neu-negative endocrine-refractory breast cancer. I think clinicians have been used to this drug in the setting of metastatic triple-negative breast cancer, but the results of theTROPiCS-02 trial would show us that it actually has a lot of efficacy and even an overall survival benefit in patients with metastatic hormone receptor-positive breast cancer. So clinicians should be made aware that this is a treatment option that does give an overall survival benefit. Brittany Harvey: Great. It's great to hear that there's an overall survival benefit with this drug. So, in addition to that, how does this rapid update impact patients with hormone receptor-positive HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer? Dr. Beverly Moy: So I think that it's important for clinicians to remember that patients with metastatic hormone receptor-positive HER2/neu-negative breast cancer, the first-line therapies are endocrine therapy and targeted therapies. But when their disease becomes endocrine refractory, we have several treatment options, and usually the standard is sequential single-agent chemotherapy. What this guideline update is telling us is that sacituzumab govitecan, when compared to other treatments of physician's choice, really does improve overall survival and progression-free survival. So it really should be considered. Brittany Harvey:  Excellent. And then finally, are there ongoing research developments that the panel is keeping an eye on for any future updates to this guideline? I know this guideline was last published in 2021 and there's already been two rapid updates to it. Dr. Beverly Moy: Yes, that's a really great question, Brittany, because this is a very active field, and I think that it's important actually to take this guideline update with sacituzumab govitecan in the context of our last guideline update, which, as you said earlier, was with the other antibody drug conjugate trastuzumab deruxtecan. That was our last guideline update in patients who had what we call metastatic HER2 low disease, where trastuzumab deruxtecan had a significant overall survival advantage as well. So what these two guideline updates are really pointing out is that there's this new class of drugs, these antibody drug conjugates, that have so much promise and so much activity in metastatic breast cancer, whether it's hormone receptor-positive or hormone receptor-negative. So future research really has to help us clarify how do we sequence these drugs most appropriately now that we have these two very active treatment options that have a significant overall survival advantage. And then research also has to really guide us into the resistance mechanisms that may be in common or not in common with these two antibody drug conjugates. So I think that we're really looking at results of future trials to see how best to sequence them, if they should be used earlier in treatment in the metastatic setting, and we await the results of those trials. Brittany Harvey: Absolutely. We'll look forward to those future research developments and work with you and the panel to continuously update these guidelines. So I want to thank you so much for your work leading these guideline rapid recommendation updates, and thank you for your time today, Dr. Moy. Dr. Beverly Moy: Thank you, Brittany, for having me. Brittany Harvey: And thank you to all our listeners for tuning in to the ASCO Guidelines podcast series. To read the full guideline, go to www.asco.org/breast-cancer-guidelines.

We've been led to believe weight is a simple equation: energy in versus energy out, which implies it's all in our control. We're in charge. We just need the right diet, exercise, and willpower. And while nutrition and physical activity matter a lot, and some maintain their weight through those means, others feel like their bodies have a mind of their own, which is actually true, as this week's guest, obesity medicine scientist, educator, and policy maker Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford explains. That's because the central nervous system, which is governed by the brain, ultimately regulates weight. We dive deep into all the factors that influence how much fat we store, where menopause comes in, and what having a healthy weight really means. It's all a whole lot more complicated than we've been led to believe. Fatima Cody Stanford, MD, MPH, MPA, FAAP, FACP, FTOS is an obesity medicine physician scientist, educator, and policy maker at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

Reporter Allison Williams and producer Beth Faber have filed a lawsuit in Connecticut against ESPN and its parent company, the Walt Disney Company, in which they claim they were fired because they refused to get the COVID vaccine. Both allegedly claimed religious exemptions but were fired in 2021. Will they win the suit? According to U.S. Navy Secretary Carlos Del Toro, the branch faces a challenge that might leave the Navy unarmed due to supply shortages. Within the next six months, America and its leaders will have to choose between continuing to supply Ukraine and supplying American troops. Why are we still funding Ukraine's war with Russia? House Republicans are trying to remove old Biden administration policy by introducing a bill, called the "Old Glory Only Act," that states that ONLY the U.S. flag can be flown at embassies around the world. Harvard medical school is now offering classes on transgender medicine to anyone at Massachusetts General Hospital. The course describes that “many of these patients identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex or asexual (LGBTQIA+).

As we enter the years beyond midlife, our quest for an approach to aging takes on added urgency and becomes even more relevant in our daily lives. Empowering a new generation of seekers to view aging as a spiritual path, authors Robert Weber and Carol Orsborn reveal that by engaging with the difficult questions about loss, meaning, and mortality -- questions, we can no longer put off or ignore --that we continue to grow. In fact, the realization of our full spiritual potential comes about not by avoiding the challenges aging brings our way but by working through them.In this episode, you'll discover:The spiritual path is wide, and the spiritual tent is very large. If religion assists your spiritual growth in aging, be grateful. If you are spiritual but not religious, be grateful and continue to seek the path of spiritual opportunities inherent in your aging.You, readers and listeners, are invited to grapple with the same 25 questions as the authors and to "live the questions" until you live your way through to your own answer, hopefully, encouraged by Bob and Carol's conversational and candid style, their insightful and compassionate guidance, and their anecdotes, inspirational readings, and spiritual exercises.Grow whole and resilient, learning not only learn to cope--but also to soar - by engaging deeply with both the shadow and light sides of your own aging experience and by discovering that the spiritual opportunities of your life occur, not in spite of, but because of what you are facing and living.About Bob Weber:Recipient of the American Society on Aging's 2014 Religion, Spirituality, and Aging Award, Robert L.

Today on the show, host Dr. Ron Hirschberg chats with friend and colleague Dr. Eddie Phillips, Whole Health Medical Director at the Boston VA, and Associate Professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at Harvard Medical School, about asking not what's the matter with you - but what matters to you, about Eddie's "Bike Desk" that keeps him moving while working, moderate and vigorous intensity exercise, and learning while laughing with his cohost Juna Gtata on PRX's Food, We Need To Talk.___I first met Dr. Eddie Phillips back in… 2003 (gasp), which is officially now 20 years ago when I was a resident, training at Spaulding Rehab Hospital and he was an attending physician. Eddie was then in the process of essentially grass roots education to not only patients but all healthcare workers - that exercise is medicine. Something was catching on in looking at not only exercise, but patient lifestyle more than before - such that in 2007 he founded the Institute of Lifestyle Medicine at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. Before long, Eddie and team were developing multiple Harvard CME courses around the world… So it was no surprise to me that in 2016 Dr. Phillips was approached by WBUR the NPR Boston affiliate to host The Magic Pill along with cohost WBUR's Carey Goldberg – This show won an Edward R. Murrow Award which is basically like getting an Emmy for broadcasting. Very cool. Fast-forward a couple years and Eddie joined the very talented Juna Gjata – on a fantastic new podcast produced with PRX call Food We Need to Talk – essentially educating and entertaining us all about nutrition and food and how it relates to our lives - Make sure to check out this show, perhaps as your New Year's resolution (and hint-hint that's the topic of their episode this week – all you need to know about New Years' resolutions, including the science behind it)…-Cheers all and Happy New Year! - Ron____If you are your loved one is experiencing any emotional, mental health struggles, you are not alone and please contact Home Base at (617) 724-5202, or visit www.homebase.org.Theme music for Home Base Nation: "Rolling the tree" by The Butler FrogsFollow Home Base on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedInThe Home Base Nation Team is Steve Monaco, Army Veteran Kelly Field, Phebe Garver, Justin Scheinert, Chuck Clough, with COO Michael Allard, Brigadier General Jack Hammond, and Peter Smyth.Producer and Host: Dr. Ron HirschbergAssistant Producer, Editor: Chuck CloughChairman, Home Base Media Lab: Peter SmythTo Donate to Home Base where every dollar goes to the care of veterans and military families that is cost to them, go to: www.homebase.org/donate.Home Base Nation is the official podcast of Home Base Program for Veterans and Military Families, a partnership of the Massachusetts General Hospital and the Red Sox Foundation.

Rajani LaRocca is a physician and award-winning author of books for young people. She was born in Bangalore, India, immigrated to the U.S. as a baby, and spent most of her childhood in Louisville, Kentucky.

Plasma Growth Hormone in HCC as Biomarker of Response to Atezolizumab & Bevacizumab

A new research paper was published in Oncotarget's Volume 13 on December 6, 2022, entitled, “Plasma growth hormone is a potential biomarker of response to atezolizumab and bevacizumab in advanced hepatocellular carcinoma patients.” Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has limited systemic therapy options when discovered at an advanced stage. Thus, there is a need for accessible and minimally invasive biomarkers of response to guide the selection of patients for treatment. In this new study, researchers Yehia I. Mohamed, Dan G. Duda, Muhammad O. Awiwi, Sunyoung S. Lee, Lina Altameemi, Lianchun Xiao, Jeffrey S. Morris, Robert A. Wolff, Khaled M. Elsayes, Rikita I. Hatia, Aliya Qayyum, Shadi M. Chamseddine, Asif Rashid, James C. Yao, Armeen Mahvash, Manal M. Hassan, Hesham M. Amin, and Ahmed Omar Kaseb from MD Anderson Cancer Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Michigan State University, University of Pennsylvania, and Perelman School of Medicine investigated the biomarker value of plasma growth hormone (GH) level as a potential biomarker to predict outcome in unresectable HCC patients treated with current standard therapy, atezolizumab plus bevacizumab (Atezo/Bev). “The present study was designed to investigate the association between GH levels and overall survivals (OS) and progression free survival (PFS) in HCC patients treated with current standard, atezolizumab plus bevacizumab.” The study included unresectable HCC patients scheduled to receive Atezo/Bev. Patients were followed to determine progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS). Plasma GH levels were measured by ELISA and used to stratify the HCC patients into GH-high and GH-low groups (the cutoff normal GH levels in women and men are ≤3.7 μg/L and ≤0.9 μg/L, respectively). The Kaplan-Meier method was used to calculate median OS and PFS and Log rank test was used to compare survival outcomes between GH-high and -low groups. Thirty-seven patients were included in this analysis, of whom 31 were males and 6 females, with a median age of 67 years (range: 37–80). At the time of the analysis, the one-year survival rate was 70% (95% CI: 0.51, 0.96) among GH low patients and 33% (95% CI: 0.16, 0.67) among GH high patients. OS was significantly superior in GH-low compared to GH-high patients (median OS: 18.9 vs. 9.3 months; p = 0.014). PFS showed a non-significant trend in favor of GH-low patients compared to the GH-high group (median PFS: 6.6 vs. 2.9 months; p = 0.053). “Plasma GH is a biomarker candidate for predicting treatment outcomes in advanced HCC patients treated with Atezo/Bev. This finding should be further validated in larger randomized clinical trials in advanced HCC patients.” DOI: https://doi.org/10.18632/oncotarget.28322 Correspondence to: Ahmed Omar Kaseb - akaseb@mdanderson.org Keywords: growth hormone, hepatocellular carcinoma, immunotherapy, atezolizumab, bevacizumab About Oncotarget: Oncotarget (a primarily oncology-focused, peer-reviewed, open access journal) aims to maximize research impact through insightful peer-review; eliminate borders between specialties by linking different fields of oncology, cancer research and biomedical sciences; and foster application of basic and clinical science.

Medicine Is Failing Disabled Patients. Meet The Doctors Pushing For Change “More than sixty-one million Americans have disabilities, and increasing evidence documents that they experience health care disparities.” That's the conclusion of a series of studies, in which researchers pulled back the curtain on how doctors perceive disabled patients. A study from last year found that more than half of surveyed physicians do not feel fully confident that they can provide disabled and non-disabled patients the same level of care. And in another paper, some doctors went as far to say that if you have a disability then “I am not the doctor for you.” So how do we change that? Ira talks with two researchers, who are disabled themselves, about how the medical field needs to better serve the disabled community. He hears from Dr. Lisa Iezzoni, an author on those studies and a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, who is based at the Health Policy Research Center at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Also joining Science Friday is Dr. Feranmi Okanlami, a physician and assistant professor at the University of Michigan Medical School, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. To Stop Whale Strikes, Ships Were Asked to Slow Down. It Worked. The Santa Barbara Channel is like an underwater national park with marine mammals, seabirds, fish and even shipwrecks. Ocean currents from the north and south meet and mix here to create an ideal feeding grounds for marine life. “Just the other day I was flying over the channel and we counted over 40 humpback whales in a rather small region feeding on fish,” said Sean Hastings, the Policy Management and Information Officer for the Channel Islands Marine Sanctuary—part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration or NOAA. We met at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, close to his office, and sat in the museum's library which is filled with books that are different shades of blues and greens—the colors you'd expect books about the ocean to be. Hastings continues his story about a recent flight over the channel spotting all those whales.

Some call it the greatest invention of the 20th century. That first transistor was a clunky looking thing, with two gold contacts on a plastic wedge pressed against a crystal of germanium. But that early device had a magical property: A voltage in one part of the device could control the flow of electrons in another part of the transistor. It could be a switch, or an amplifier. That device and the ones that followed and improved on it would become an essential part of modern life. From the first transistor radios to modern computers, hearing aids, and more, transistors are everywhere, in great numbers. An ordinary cell phone today likely has billions of transistors in it. In fact, the transistor has become so ubiquitous that one estimate puts the number of transistors on the planet as about three million per square foot. The three researchers credited with the invention of the transistor, William Shockley, John Bardeen, and Walter Brattain, went on to share the Nobel Prize in Physics—but they saw limited financial gain from their creation, and had a rocky personal relationship. Michael Riordan, a physicist, science historian, and coauthor of “Crystal Fire: The Invention of the Transistor and the Birth of the Information Age,” joins Ira to look back on the invention, the scientists who got credit for the device, and where transistor technology has gone since 1947. Transcripts for each segment will be available the week after the show airs on sciencefriday.com.

In this episode, Dr. Michael Maddaus talks with Haytham Kaafarani, MD, MPH, associate professor of trauma and critical care at Massachusetts General Hospital and chief patient safety officer and medical director for The Joint Commission. They discuss Second Victim Syndrome, the often-dramatic psychological impact of an adverse event on the physician—typically operative and one for which the surgeon often feels directly responsible. Dr. Kaafarani is an international expert on second victim due to his direct personal experience with the psychological impact of adverse events, as well as his role in two seminal studies of Second Victim Syndrome in surgeons.  Listen as Drs. Maddaus and Kaafarani share insights on the emotional toll that an adverse event can take on the life of a surgeon and talk about the importance of peer support for a better recovery. They explore how Dr. Kaafarani became an expert regarding Second Victim Syndrome and how he developed his 5-step peer support program. This discussion will help listeners reflect on their own experiences with major adverse events and understand their part in boosting institutional support.  “The Resilient Surgeon” is a program from the Society designed to inspire cardiothoracic surgeons to be their best selves, in and out of the OR, using scientifically proven tools and recovery strategies of the world's top performers.

Learn about how Dr. Susan Swick is challenging the paradigm of mental health, redesigning the future of behavioral health facilities and why every community needs a gym for building our mental health resilience.  Susan Swick, MD, MPH is the Executive Director of Ohana, designing and leading the development of this Center for Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health at the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula in Monterey, California. In addition to evaluation and treatment programs that are evidence-based and family-focused. Ohana programs will also emphasize the cultivation of mental health at the individual, family and community level. This Center is being created with the support of a landmark $100 million gift from a single donor in the hospital's community, reflecting a recognition on both the hospital's and the community's part that the resources available to families seeking care for their children's mental health challenges were sorely lacking. Dr. Swick has a long-standing interest in how adversity affects children and families, and in how well-timed interventions can make a critical difference. Prior to relocating to California in 2018, Dr. Swick served as the Chief of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Newton Wellesley Hospital for five years. While at Newton-Wellesley Hospital, she created a new community health initiative called “The Resilience Project,” partnering with local High Schools to promote the mental health and well-being of youth and their families. She also directed the Parenting At a Challenging Time (PACT) program at Newton-Wellesley, a parent guidance program available to cancer patients who were still raising young children. She was an Instructor in Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and at Massachusetts General Hospital, where she created and ran a course on Parent Guidance for the Child Psychiatry fellows. She attended Medical School at Columbia University, where she also received a Masters in Public Health. She, her husband and their four children are all east-coasters originally, but are happy to call California home.
