It is estimated that the global burden of gastric cancer could be reduced by up to 50% by dietary changes that included an increased intake of fruit and vegetables. Expand
Factors predictive of preferred place of death in the general population of South Australia
Multivariable analyses indicate that predictors of preferred home death include younger age, male, born in the UK/Ireland or Italy/Greece, better physical health, poorer mental health, and fewer concerns about dying at home. Expand
Review Paper: The Health Status of Migrants in Australia: A Review
It was found that the majority of migrants enjoy better health than the Australian-born population in the conditions that are part of the NHPAs, with the exception of diabetes. Expand
Risk of cancer in patients with scleroderma: a population based cohort study
Evidence is provided that scleroderma is associated with cancer, and in particular, lung cancer, in South Australia and both diffuse and limited forms of sclerosis are associated with a similarly increased risk of cancer. Expand
A cost-effectiveness analysis of adding a human papillomavirus vaccine to the Australian National Cervical Cancer Screening Program.
It is suggested that adding an HPV vaccine to Australia's current screening regimen is a potentially cost-effective way to reduce cervical cancer and the clinical interventions that are currently associated with its prevention via screening alone. Expand
Clinical characteristics and outcomes of bilateral breast cancer in an Australian cohort.
The results confirm international findings indicating worse outcomes from bilateral compared with unilateral breast cancer, as well as investigating disease-specific outcomes investigated using Cox regression modelling. Expand
Population screening and intensity of screening are associated with reduced breast cancer mortality: evidence of efficacy of mammography screening in Australia
Participation in screening was associated with a breast-cancer mortality reduction of between 30 and 41%, depending on assumptions about screening self-selection bias, and a downward mortality risk by recency of last screen prior to cancer diagnosis, and frequency of recent screening, is consistent with a screening effect.

Cancer epidemiology in the pacific islands - past, present and future.
Overall, the major cancers in males are oral and liver in Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands, and lung and prostate elsewhere, whereas in females it is breast and either cervix or lung, depending largely on whether cervical cancer screening program is active. Expand
Factors predictive of corneal graft survival. Report from the Australian Corneal Graft Registry.
Key predictors of graft failure were an indication for graft other than keratoconus or corneal dystrophy; a failed previous graft; aphakia; inflammation at the time of graft; presence of an anterior chamber or iris-clip intraocular lens; graft size outside the range of 7.0 to 7.9 mm diameter.

Trends in the terminal care of cancer patients: South Australia, 1981-1990.
Investigation of trends in the place of death of South Australian cancer patients between 1981 and 1990 found a decline in the proportion of deaths which occurred in major metropolitan public hospitals, but there was no significant change in theportionWhich occurred in country hospitals or nursing homes.
