Fertility Preservation and Treatment Options for Women Diagnosed with Cervical Cancer

with  Dr. Julie Lamb 
January 28, 2019, 5:30 PM EST LISTEN
Nearly 13000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer in the United States each year and about 68% of all invasive cervical cancer cases diagnosed involve women of childbearing age. Advanced treatments available today allow women to live longer but the same treatments impact their fertility negatively, decreasing their quality of life severely. This makes it important that these women be given options to preserve their fertility before going for cervical cancer treatments. January is Cervical Cancer awareness month, and in honor we are addressed the issue of fertility preservation in cervical cancer patients with Dr Julie Lamb, reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist at Pacific NW Fertility in Seattle and clinical faculty at the University of Washington. Morgan and Lauren, Cervical cancer ambassadors for Cervivor.org and Allison Pozzi, a Cervical cancer survivor who successfully built her family via IVF (In vitro fertilisation) also share their experiences and informed the panel.

The treatment paradigm for myeloma patients has changed in the last decade with important advancements such as proteasome inhibitors, IMiDS, antibodies and risk-adapted maintenance. How a patient responds to therapy can be used to determine how long the maintenance or follow-up therapy should be. This is called risk-adapted therapy and personalizes myeloma care. The myeloma panel talked to Dr. Sagar Lonial of Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, to learn how he uses genetic and disease risk factors to personalize maintenance strategies after stem cell transplants for his patients with multiple myeloma.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a health condition that affects 1 in 10 women of childbearing age. Women with PCOS have hormonal imbalance & metabolism problems that may lead to obesity, CVD, type 2 diabetes, infertility, endometrial cancer and more. In the absence of a complete cure, efficient management of the condition gains importance and information is the key. We talked to a panel of experts from the University of Pennsylvania - Dr. Anuja Dokras, Dr. Anastassia Amaro & Dr. Kelly Costello Allison to understand the condition, available treatments, and best ways to manage symptoms. The discussion also touched upon the details of the PCOS-COMET study being conducted by Penn PCOS Center to compare the effects of medications on metabolic risk factors such as weight, blood pressure, glucose, & cholesterol levels in overweight/obese women.
