The goal of this research project is to identify and characterize potentially novel antineoplastic agents that could specifically degrade conformational mutP53 protein in cancer cells. We concluded that treatment of cancer cells with curcumin or PLINH compounds inhibit proliferation of cancer cells in a DNAJA1-misfolded mutp5-dependent manner. Delineation of the exact mechanism through which curcumin and PLINH exert their anti-cancer effects could pave the way for promising novel preventive and therapeutic modalities for cancer.

This presentation describes a quality improvement project to develop a multi-disciplinary standardized approach for prompt surgical intervention to establish a diagnosis of anterior mediastinal mass. The aim was to decrease the time from presentation to surgical diagnostic procedure to <24 hours for all patients with newly diagnosed AM masses. An Anterior Mediastinal Mass Recommended Pathway was developed to improve communication and reduce time to diagnosis and>treatment.

Evaluating the Consistency and Quality of Search Strategies and Methodology in Cochrane Urology Group Systematic Reviews
Jennifer A. Lyon, Carrie Price, Jamie Saragossi, and Clara Y. Tran
The Cochrane Urology Working Group has undergone multiple administrative and personnel changes over its history. Presently, there are nearly a dozen Information Specialists volunteering from several institutions and two countries. To identify areas for quality and consistency improvement, we evaluated the search methodologies in 64 Urology Group Reviews/Protocols.
64 published Urology Group Cochrane Systematic Reviews (CSR) and Protocols (CSP) were downloaded from the Cochrane Library on September 15, 2016. A data form was created using Qualtrics consisting of several sections including expanded PRESS (Peer-Review of Electronic Search Strategies) elements, database selection, search methodology reporting, & consistency. Four librarians, including two Cochrane Urology Assistant Information Specialists, evaluated 20 CSR/Ps each, allowing overlap to verify data extraction reliability.
Librarian reviewers noted high variability in CSR/P search methods including selection of databases searched, full search strategies reporting, and use of publication filters, clinical trial registries, conference proceedings, and journal TOCs. Within search strategies, common errors included wrong line numbers, misspellings, inappropriate syntax, and duplicated lines.
Cochrane Reviews are frequently viewed as the "gold standard" of systematic reviews, therefore the CSR/Ps should have high quality search methodology. This retrospective analysis represents a historical overview of search method reporting in CSR/Ps from the Cochrane Urology Group. Our results demonstrate a need for improved standardization including complete documentation of all strategies, more consistent database selection, less variation in strategy construction, increased use of peer-review and inclusion of the PRISMA Flow Diagram, and tighter adherence to the Cochrane Handbook/MECIR Standards.
