Global cancer statistics, 2012
TLDR
A substantial portion of cancer cases and deaths could be prevented by broadly applying effective prevention measures, such as tobacco control, vaccination, and the use of early detection tests.
Cancer incidence and mortality patterns in Europe: estimates for 40 countries in 2012.
TLDR
Up-to-date estimates of the cancer burden in Europe alongside the description of the varying distribution of common cancers at both the regional and country level provide a basis for establishing priorities to cancer control actions in Europe.
International variation in prostate cancer incidence and mortality rates.
TLDR
PCa incidence rates increased in nearly all countries considered in this analysis except in a few high-income countries, and the increase in PCa mortality rates mainly occurred in lower resource settings, with declines largely confined to high-resource countries.
Global burden of human papillomavirus and related diseases.
TLDR
Cervical cancer is the third most common female malignancy and shows a strong association with level of development, rates being at least four-fold higher in countries defined within the low ranking of the Human Development Index (HDI) compared with those in the very high category.
Worldwide trends in incidence rates for oral cavity and oropharyngeal cancers.
TLDR
OPC incidence significantly increased during 1983 to 2002 predominantly in developed countries and at younger ages, underscore a potential role for HPV infection on increasing OPC incidence, particularly among men.
Global, regional, and national disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) for 306 diseases and injuries and healthy life expectancy (HALE) for 188 countries, 1990–2013: quantifying the epidemiological
TLDR
Patterns of the epidemiological transition with a composite indicator of sociodemographic status, which was constructed from income per person, average years of schooling after age 15 years, and the total fertility rate and mean age of the population, were quantified.
Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 301 acute and chronic diseases and injuries in 188 countries, 1990–2013: a systematic analysis for the Global
TLDR
The results can guide future health initiatives through examination of epidemiological trends and a better understanding of variation across countries.
Global, regional, and national comparative risk assessment of 79 behavioural, environmental and occupational, and metabolic risks or clusters of risks in 188 countries, 1990–2013: a systematic
TLDR
The challenge for governments and the health development community more broadly is to heed knowledge about the comparative effect of health risks, according to the World Health Organization.
Global burden of cancer in 2008: a systematic analysis of disability-adjusted life-years in 12 world regions
TLDR
Age-adjusted DALYs lost from cancer are substantial, irrespective of world region, and consistently larger proportions of YLLs in low HDI than in high HDI countries indicate substantial inequalities in prognosis after diagnosis, related to degree of human development.
Global, regional, and national comparative risk assessment of 79 behavioural, environmental and occupational, and metabolic risks or clusters of risks in 188 countries, 1990–2013: a systematic
TLDR
The Global Burden of Disease, Injuries, and Risk Factor study 2013 is the first of a series of annual updates of the GBD and six new risk factors have been added: handwashing practices, occupational exposure to trichloroethylene, childhood wasting, childhood stunting, unsafe sex, and low glomerular filtration rate.
