Despite advances in treatment and increased screening, female breast cancer survival is affected by race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status (SES). The purpose of this study was to substantiate disparities in breast cancer mortality in a large and unique dataset containing 7 distinct racial groups, 31 comorbidities, demographic and clinical/pathological(More)
Background. Haitian immigrant women residing in Little Haiti, a large ethnic enclave in Miami-Dade County, experience the highest cervical cancer incidence rates in South Florida. While this disparity primarily reflects lack of access to screening with cervical cytology, the burden of human papillomavirus (HPV) which causes virtually all cases of cervical(More)
The selection of a method for estimating treatment effects in an intent-to-treat analysis from clinical trial data with missing values often depends on the field of practice. The last observation carried forward (LOCF) analysis assumes that the responses do not change after dropout. Such an assumption is often unrealistic. Analysis with completers only(More)

BACKGROUND There is growing evidence that human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected women might have a different human papillomavirus (HPV) type distribution in cervical dysplasia specimens as compared to the general population. This has implications for primary prevention. OBJECTIVE We aimed to obtain preliminary data on the HPV genotypes prevalent in(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine if marital status, including specific types of single status categories, is associated with length of survival in lung cancer patients. METHODS Data from the 1996-2007 Florida Cancer Data System were linked with Agency for Health Care Administration data and U.S. Census data. Patients with both small cell(More)
BACKGROUND Photodynamic therapy (PDT) involves excitation of sensitizer molecules by visible light in the presence of molecular oxygen, thereby generating reactive oxygen species (ROS) through electron/energy transfer processes. The ROS, thus produced can cause damage to both the structure and the function of the cellular constituents resulting in cell(More)
INTRODUCTION Contralateral prophylactic mastectomy (CPM) is an option for women who wish to reduce their risk of breast cancer or its local recurrence. There is limited data on demographic differences among patients who choose to undergo this procedure. METHODS The population-based Florida cancer registry, Florida's Agency for Health Care Administration(More)
PURPOSE Despite the established guidelines for breast cancer treatment, there is still variability in surgical treatment after neoadjuvant therapy (NT) for women with large breast tumors. Our objective was to identify predictors of the type of surgical treatment: mastectomy versus breast-conserving surgery (BCS) in women with T3/T4 breast cancer who(More)
We evaluated associations of race, primary payer at diagnosis, and survival among patients diagnosed in Florida with lung cancer (n = 148,140) and breast cancer (n = 111,795), from 1996 through 2007. In multivariate models adjusted for comorbidities, tumor characteristics, and treatment factors, breast cancer survival was worse for Native American women(More)
