  • Cancer
  • This article reviews epidemiologic studies of cancer among agricultural populations to identify possible associations and to provide a focus for future investigations. (ilo.org)
  • We disagree with the conclusion of the "panel of experts" reported by Choi that a HWE is unlikely to be present in cancer studies and, therefore, can be ignored (one of the panel members also did not agree with this position). (cdc.gov)
  • Brazil is one of the countries with the highest incidence of penile cancer, although epidemiological studies are rare. (urotoday.com)
  • The objective of this study is to know the clinical and epidemiological data on new cases of penile cancer in the state of Pernambuco, located in the northeast region of Brazil, and contribute to the national study of the Brazilian Society of Urology. (urotoday.com)
  • Interviews were conducted with a clinical, epidemiological questionnaire adapted from the questionnaire used by the SBU in the first epidemiological study of penile cancer. (urotoday.com)
  • In 11 months of the study, 32 new cases of penile cancer were enrolled and analyzed in 5 referral hospitals in Pernambuco. (urotoday.com)
  • Statin use and risk of prostate cancer: results from a population-based epidemiologic study. (nih.gov)
  • Epidemiologic studies of statin use in relation to prostate cancer risk have been inconclusive. (nih.gov)
  • The authors conducted a population-based study of 1,001 incident prostate cancer cases diagnosed in 2002-2005 and 942 age-matched controls from King County, Washington, to evaluate risk associated with statin use. (nih.gov)
  • 2013;177(1):3-13) report on the association of 7 markers of inflammation, adiposity, and endothelial function with risk of overall cancer and breast and prostate cancers in a nested case-control study carried out within the SU.VI.MAX cohort (France, 1994-2007). (ovid.com)
  • Future studies of inflammation and cancer should be able to capitalize on emerging multiplexed methods for the simultaneous detection of larger numbers of inflammatory markers in low-volume specimens. (ovid.com)
  • Given that many large prospective cohort studies have already collected and banked serum/plasma samples, rapid gains in our understanding of chronic inflammation and its role in cancer etiology are possible. (ovid.com)
  • In one study, 45% of the dogs that reached 10 years of age or older died of cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • In March 2015 the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer classified glyphosate as "probably carcinogenic in humans" (category 2A) based on epidemiological studies, animal studies, and in vitro studies. (wikipedia.org)
  • cohort
  • Steenland and Stayner saw evidence for a HWE for all cancers (SMR = 0.91) in a combined analysis of 10 NIOSH cohort mortality studies, and the extent of the bias appeared to be related to the percentage of inactive person-time in the studies. (cdc.gov)
  • Paper I was a retrospective cohort study investigating the correlation between in-hospital surgical delay and the risk for perforated appendicitis. (avhandlingar.se)
  • observational studies
  • A decision to institute compulsory preregistration of protocols for observational studies-to be enforced by editors and reviewers as sometimes suggested 1 - 3 -is not to be taken lightly, and should not be endorsed solely on the basis of an analogous system instituted for randomized trials. (lww.com)
  • public
  • We define instances in which preregistration would be useful, and we support a counter-proposal: a public registry containing descriptions of collected epidemiologic data. (lww.com)
  • Such a registry would better accomplish some of the stated goals of protocol preregistration, such as securing public knowledge about ongoing epidemiologic research and providing a means to identify all potentially available evidence about a research topic. (lww.com)
  • What are the public health implications of the study? (epidemiolog.net)
  • symptoms
  • Several research studies have found the CES-DC to be a reliable and valid measure of depressive symptoms in children. (wikipedia.org)
  • relation
  • His concepts are still considered in current scientific research in relation to Traditional Chinese Medicine studies (see: http://apps.who.int/medicinedocs/en/d/Js6170e/4.html). (wikipedia.org)
  • mortality
  • A retrospective study of SIDS rates and mortality rates attributable to excessive environmental heat in relationship to climatologic temperature was performed. (aappublications.org)
  • Results
  • The results from the unadjusted analyses also supported the conclusion of our analyses that the negative results from the Kodak study are not statistically inconsistent with predictions from the animal- based risk assessment model. (cdc.gov)
  • incidence
  • A rapidly declining incidence rate of childhood appendicitis was identified in Sweden over the study period, with significantly different trends comparing non-perforated and perforated appendicitis. (avhandlingar.se)
  • 1 Although the relationship between climatic temperature and SIDS incidence has been examined carefully, the studies were performed predominantly in nations without extreme temperature variations, such as Great Britain, Tasmania, and New Zealand. (aappublications.org)
  • 3 In contrast, a cross-cultural study found comparatively weak relationships between climatic temperature and SIDS incidence in communities in the United States. (aappublications.org)
  • qualitative
  • Such sources are often only mentioned via qualitative caveats, perhaps under the heading of 'study limitations. (mdpi.com)

  • In a study involving over 10,000 people from 37 cultures, Buss (Psychology/Univ. (google.com)
  • We prospectively studied cultures obtained from all 100 patients hospitalized from 1 December 1985 through 23 January 1986 on the surgical and thoracic intensive care units and a general medical floor. (annals.org)

  • Nosocomial acquisition and interhospital spread of gentamicin-resistant enterococci was shown to have occurred when plasmid content was used as an epidemiologic marker. (annals.org)
