Global surveillance of trends in cancer survival 2000–14 (CONCORD-3): analysis of individual records for 37 513 025 patients diagnosed with one of 18 cancers from 322 population-based registries in
TLDR
For most cancers, 5-year net survival remains among the highest in the world in the USA and Canada, in Australia and New Zealand, and in Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden, while for many cancers, Denmark is closing the survival gap with the other Nordic countries.
Factors associated with initial treatment and survival for clinically localized prostate cancer: results from the CDC-NPCR Patterns of Care Study (PoC1)
TLDR
Overall survival was related to younger age, being married, Gleason score under 8, radical prostatectomy, and state of residence, but true regional differences probably exist in how physicians and patients select treatment options.
Influence of socioeconomic status and hospital type on disparities of lymph node evaluation in colon cancer patients
TLDR
The influence of both socioeconomic status (SES) and hospital type on compliance with this colon LN dissection guideline is assessed and the time trend for ≥12 LNs dissected is examined.
Population-Based Lynch Syndrome Screening by Microsatellite Instability in Patients ≤50: Prevalence, Testing Determinants, and Result Availability Prior to Colon Surgery
TLDR
Despite frequently abnormal MSI/IHC results, LS screening in young, high-risk patients is low and provider education and disparities in access to specialized services, particularly in underserved populations, are possible contributors.
Treatment patterns for stage III colon cancer and factors related to receipt of postoperative chemotherapy in Louisiana.
TLDR
The percentage of patients who received chemotherapy decreased with advancing age, and patients who were diagnosed at COC hospitals had a higher likelihood of receiving chemotherapy than their counterparts diagnosed at non-COC hospitals.
Racial and Ethnic Disparities in the Incidence and Trends of Soft Tissue Sarcoma Among Adolescents and Young Adults in the United States, 1995-2008.
TLDR
The incidence rates of STS histological types in AYAs vary among racial/ethnic groups, and the declining trends of STs are due mainly to decreasing incidence of Kaposi sarcoma in all races/ethnicities.
Trend and survival benefit of Oncotype DX use among female hormone receptor-positive breast cancer patients in 17 SEER registries, 2004–2015
TLDR
ODX use has increased significantly since 2004, nonetheless disparities remain, especially for racial/ethnic minorities and Medicaid insured patients, and Administering chemotherapy based on ODX results has been improved among N0 patients.
Impact of chemotherapy relative dose intensity on cause-specific and overall survival for stage I–III breast cancer: ER+/PR+, HER2- vs. triple-negative
TLDR
Higher RDI of chemotherapy is associated with better survival for ER+/PR+, HER2- patients and TNBC patients, and RDI should be maintained to optimize survival benefits.
Patterns of treatment for ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast in Louisiana, 1988-1999.
TLDR
Despite the increase in use of lumpectomy among female DCIS patients, its utilization remained approximately 10% lower than in the SEER areas throughout the study period and a similar deficit was observed for post-lumpectomy radiation therapy.
Childhood cancer in Louisiana 1988-1996.
TLDR
Cancer incidence among children younger than 15 years of age is presented by major cancer type, according to the primarily histology-based International Classification of Childhood Cancer scheme, using data from the Louisiana Tumor Registry.
