- N. Howlader, S. Altekruse, +4 authors K. Cronin
- Journal of the National Cancer Institute
- 1 May 2014
BACKGROUND In 2010, Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) registries began collecting human epidermal growth factor 2 (HER2) receptor status for breast cancer cases. METHODS Breast… Expand
Spectrum of cancer risk among US solid organ transplant recipients.
CONTEXT Solid organ transplant recipients have elevated cancer risk due to immunosuppression and oncogenic viral infections. Because most prior research has concerned kidney recipients, large studies… Expand
Increasing burden of melanoma in the United States.

It is controversial whether worldwide increases in melanoma incidence represent a true epidemic. Dramatic increases in incidence in the setting of relatively stable mortality trends have also been… Expand
Diet and risk of ovarian cancer in the California Teachers Study cohort.
Dietary phytochemical compounds, including isoflavones and isothiocyanates, may inhibit cancer development but have not yet been examined in prospective epidemiologic studies of ovarian cancer. The… Expand
Long-term recreational physical activity and risk of invasive and in situ breast cancer: the California teachers study.
- C. Dallal, J. Sullivan-Halley, +12 authors L. Bernstein
- Archives of internal medicine
- 26 February 2007
BACKGROUND Long-term physical activity may affect breast cancer risk. Few prospective studies have evaluated in situ or invasive breast cancer risk, or breast cancer receptor subtypes, in relation to… Expand

PURPOSE Lung cancer is a leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Although smoking remains the predominant cause of lung cancer, lung cancer in never smokers is an increasingly prominent public… Expand
Proposed classification of lymphoid neoplasms for epidemiologic research from the Pathology Working Group of the International Lymphoma Epidemiology Consortium (InterLymph).
Recent evidence suggests that there is etiologic heterogeneity among the various subtypes of lymphoid neoplasms. However, epidemiologic analyses by disease subtype have proven challenging due to the… Expand
Etiologic heterogeneity among non-Hodgkin lymphoma subtypes: the InterLymph Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Subtypes Project.

BACKGROUND Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) comprises biologically and clinically heterogeneous subtypes. Previously, study size has limited the ability to compare and contrast the risk factor profiles… Expand
Hidden breast cancer disparities in Asian women: disaggregating incidence rates by ethnicity and migrant status.
OBJECTIVES We estimated trends in breast cancer incidence rates for specific Asian populations in California to determine if disparities exist by immigrant status and age. METHODS To calculate… Expand
Lifetime risks of specific breast cancer subtypes among women in four racial/ethnic groups
IntroductionBreast cancer comprises clinically distinct subtypes, but most risk statistics consider breast cancer only as a single entity. To estimate subtype-specific lifetime breast cancer risks,… Expand
