Book Description :

This book is organized into 4 sections, each looking at the question of outcome prediction in cancer from a different angle. The first section describes the clinical problem and some of the predicaments that clinicians face in dealing with cancer. Amongst issues discussed in this section are the TNM staging, accepted methods for survival analysis and competing risks. The second section describes the biological and genetic markers and the rôle of bioinformatics. Understanding of the genetic and environmental basis of cancers will help in identifying high-risk populations and developing effective prevention and early detection strategies. The third section provides technical details of mathematical analysis behind survival prediction backed up by examples from various types of cancers. The fourth section describes a number of machine learning methods which have been applied to decision support in cancer. The final section describes how information is shared within the scientific and medical communities and with the general population using information technology and the World Wide Web. * Applications cover 8 types of cancer including brain, eye, mouth, head and neck, breast, lungs, colon and prostate * Include contributions from authors in 5 different disciplines * Provides a valuable educational tool for medical informatics

Book Description :

There have been extensive studies of classification and prediction of cancer outcome with composite gene features that combine functionally related genes together as a single feature to improve the classification and prediction accuracy. Various algorithms have been proposed for feature extraction, feature activity inference, and feature selection, which all claim to improve the prediction accuracy. However, due to the limited test data sets used by each independent study, inconsistent test procedures, and conflicting results, it is difficult to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the relative performances of these algorithms. In this study, various algorithms for the three steps in using composite features for cancer outcome prediction were implemented and an extensive comparison and evaluation were performed by applying testing to seven microarray data sets covering two cancer types and three different clinical outcomes. Also by integrating algorithms in all three different steps, we aimed to investigate how to get the best cancer prediction by using different combinations of these techniques.

Book Description :

"Prognosis after cancer treatment is a constant concern for physicians, patients and their surrounding friends and family. This is one of the reasons that treatment outcomes prediction is such a critical field of research. The sheer magnitude of data generated within a typical radiation oncology clinic each year facilitates the development and eventual validation of predictive and prognostic models. Furthermore, the technological advances driven by data science have enabled the usage of advanced machine learning techniques which can far exceed the performance of previously used conventional techniques.Most cancer patients follow a standard radiation oncology workflow, which among other things includes medical imaging (CT/PET) and the creation of a radiation therapy treatment plan. As these sorts of data are (in theory) present for every patient, they are ideal variables to input into a predictive model. The goal of this thesis was to investigate these two types of pre-treatment input data (diagnostic imaging and dosimetric data) along with patient characteristics to identify associations and create models capable of predicting a cancer patient's treatment response following radiation therapy. The first objective was to investigate dose-volume metrics as predictors of clinical outcomes in a cohort of 422 non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients who received stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). A correlation between the dose delivered to the region outside the tumor and the occurrence of distant metastasis was revealed. In particular, patients who received above a certain threshold dose were shown to have significantly reduced distant metastasis recurrence rates compared to the rest of the population. This was first shown on 217 patients all of whom were treated with conventional SBRT treatment modalities. Next, a similar analysis was done on 205 patients who were treated with a robotic arm linear accelerator (CyberKnife). It was found that the CyberKnife cohort had both superior distant control and local control, suggesting that under current prescription practices, CyberKnife, as a delivery device, could be superior for treating NSCLC patients with SBRT. The second objective of this thesis was to investigate the usage of a deep learning framework applied to raw medical imaging data in order to predict the overall prognosis of head & neck cancer patients post-radiation therapy. A de novo architecture was built incorporating CT images, resulting in comparable performance to a state-of-the-art study. Furthermore, our model was shown to recognize imaging features (`radiomics') previously shown to be predictive without being explicitly presented with their definition. The final portion of this work was the development of a multi-modal deep learning framework which incorporated CT & PET images along with clinical information. This was compared to the previous architecture built, showing substantial increase in prediction performance for both overall survival and local recurrence. It was also shown to function in the presence of missing data, a common occurrence within the medical landscape.This work demonstrates that pre-treatment prediction of a cancer patient's post-radiation therapy outcomes is possible by learning correlations and building models from readily available data. Future efforts should be put towards data sharing & data curation to enable the creation and validation of models that eventually can be used in the clinic. Ultimately, predictive models should evolve into generative models whereupon one's treatment could be automatically created with the explicit intention of statistically optimizing that patient's outcomes"--

Book Description :

Bioinformatics can be loosely defined as the collection, classification, storage, and analysis of biochemical and biological information using computers and mathematical algorithms. Bioinformatics represents a marriage of biology, medicine, computer science, physics, and mathematics, fields of study that have historically existed as mutually exclusive disciplines. Edited by Gavin Gordon, Bioinformatics in Cancer and Cancer Therapy, the focus of this book is to provide a historical and technical perspective on the analytical techniques, methodologies, and platforms used in bioinformatics experiments, to show how a bioinformatics approach has been used to characterize various cancer-related processes, and to demonstrate how a bioinformatics approach is being used to bridge basic science and the clinical arena to positively impact patient care and management.

Book Description :

This book presents the state of the art of biostatistical methods and their applications in clinical oncology. Many methodologies established today in biostatistics have been brought about through its applications to the design and analysis of oncology clinical studies. This field of oncology, now in the midst of evolution owing to rapid advances in biotechnologies and cancer genomics, is becoming one of the most promising disease fields in the shift toward personalized medicine. Modern developments of diagnosis and therapeutics of cancer have also been continuously fueled by recent progress in establishing the infrastructure for conducting more complex, large-scale clinical trials and observational studies. The field of cancer clinical studies therefore will continue to provide many new statistical challenges that warrant further progress in the methodology and practice of biostatistics. This book provides a systematic coverage of various stages of cancer clinical studies. Topics from modern cancer clinical trials include phase I clinical trials for combination therapies, exploratory phase II trials with multiple endpoints/treatments, and confirmative biomarker-based phase III trials with interim monitoring and adaptation. It also covers important areas of cancer screening, prognostic analysis, and the analysis of large-scale molecular data in the era of big data.
