These findings are reported in the March issue of Psychology of Addictive Behaviors, published by the American Psychological Association (APA).

‘Dose Dense’ Chemo Improves Survival in Breast Cancer Patients

A new clinical trial has shown that reducing the interval between successive doses of a commonly used chemotherapy regimen improves survival in women whose breast cancer has spread to the lymph nodes. While previous research has evaluated the use of various forms of "dose dense" chemotherapy, this is the first major controlled study to show a clear survival benefit for women with node-positive breast cancer.

Pre-term infants slower at processing information

New research shows this deficit in processing speed is already present in the first year of life and the gap in performance does not narrow with age. The research is published in the November issue of Developmental Psychology, a journal of the American Psychological Association (APA).
