What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

101. Interventions to reduce the time to diagnosis of brain tumours. (Abstract)

Interventions to reduce the time to diagnosis of brain tumours. Brain tumours are recognised as one of the most difficult cancers to diagnose because presenting symptoms, such as headache, cognitive symptoms, and seizures, may be more commonly attributable to other, more benign conditions. Interventions to reduce the time to diagnosis of brain tumours include national awareness initiatives, expedited pathways, and protocols to diagnose brain tumours, based on a person's presenting symptoms (...) 2014.We planned to include studies evaluating any active intervention that may influence the diagnostic pathway, e.g. clinical guidelines, direct access imaging, public health campaigns, educational initiatives, and other interventions that might lead to early identification of primary brain tumours. We planned to include randomised and non-randomised comparative studies. Included studies would include people of any age, with a presentation that might suggest a brain tumour.Two review authors

102. Capmatinib in <i>MET</i> Exon 14-Mutated or <i>MET</i>-Amplified Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer. (Abstract)

Capmatinib in MET Exon 14-Mutated or MET-Amplified Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer. Among patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), MET exon 14 skipping mutations occur in 3 to 4% and MET amplifications occur in 1 to 6%. Capmatinib, a selective inhibitor of the MET receptor, has shown activity in cancer models with various types of MET activation.We conducted a multiple-cohort, phase 2 study evaluating capmatinib in patients with MET-dysregulated advanced NSCLC. Patients were (...) assigned to cohorts on the basis of previous lines of therapy and MET status (MET exon 14 skipping mutation or MET amplification according to gene copy number in tumor tissue). Patients received capmatinib (400-mg tablet) twice daily. The primary end point was overall response (complete or partial response), and the key secondary end point was response duration; both end points were assessed by an independent review committee whose members were unaware of the cohort assignments.A total of 364 patients

A woman's risk of getting ovarian cancer during her lifetime is approximately 1 in 78 and her lifetime chance of dying of ovarian cancer is about 1 in 108. Approximately 85%-90% of all ovarian cancers are epithelial in origin, and approximately 70% of all epithelial ovarian cancers are high-grade serous (HGS) adenocarcinoma. Despite initial therapy, usually consisting of surgical cytoreduction and platinum-taxane combination therapy, the majority of women (...) peritoneal cancer (EOC). METHODS Randomized, controlled, and open-labeled trials published from 2011 through 2020 were identified in a literature search. Guideline recommendations were based on the review of the evidence, US Food and Drug Administration approvals, and consensus when evidence was lacking. RESULTS The systematic review identified 17 eligible trials. RECOMMENDATIONS The guideline pertains to patients who are PARPi naïve. All patients with newly diagnosed, stage III-IV EOC whose disease
