Follow-up of American Cancer Society Special Postdoctoral Research Fellowship recipients. (1/79)

A follow-up study of the 44 recipients of American Cancer Society, Inc., Special Postdoctoral Research Fellowship from 1962 to 1973 revealed that 11 of 21 M.D. candidates obtained their second (Ph.D.) degree at the end of training. By contrast, all but one among the 23 Ph.D. candidates were awarded the second (M.D.) degree. A great majority of either group remain in active research, regardless of whether or not they obtained the second degree. A very high percentage of their research is cancer related.  (+info)

Annual report to the nation on the status of cancer, 1973-1996, with a special section on lung cancer and tobacco smoking. (2/79)

BACKGROUND: The American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), including the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), provide the second annual report to the nation on progress in cancer prevention and control, with a special section on lung cancer and tobacco smoking. METHODS: Age-adjusted rates (using the 1970 U.S. standard population) were based on cancer incidence data from NCI and underlying cause of death data compiled by NCHS. The prevalence of tobacco use was derived from CDC surveys. Reported P values are two-sided. RESULTS: From 1990 through 1996, cancer incidence (-0.9% per year; P = .16) and cancer death (-0.6% per year; P = .001) rates for all sites combined decreased. Among the 10 leading cancer incidence sites, statistically significant decreases in incidence rates were seen in males for leukemia and cancers of the lung, colon/rectum, urinary bladder, and oral cavity and pharynx. Except for lung cancer, incidence rates for these cancers also declined in females. Among the 10 leading cancer mortality sites, statistically significant decreases in cancer death rates were seen for cancers of the male lung, female breast, the prostate, male pancreas, and male brain and, for both sexes, cancers of the colon/rectum and stomach. Age-specific analyses of lung cancer revealed that rates in males first declined at younger ages and then for each older age group successively over time; rates in females appeared to be in the early stages of following the same pattern, with rates decreasing for women aged 40-59 years. CONCLUSIONS: The declines in cancer incidence and death rates, particularly for lung cancer, are encouraging. However, unless recent upward trends in smoking among adolescents can be reversed, the lung cancer rates that are currently declining in the United States may rise again.  (+info)

Great expectations: historical perspectives on genetic breast cancer testing. (3/79)

Women who test positive for a genetic breast cancer marker may have more than a 50% chance of developing the disease. Although past screening technologies have sought to identify actual breast cancers, as opposed to predisposition, the history of screening may help predict the societal response to genetic testing. For decades, educational messages have encouraged women to find breast cancers as early as possible. Such messages have fostered the popular assumption that immediately discovered and treated breast cancers are necessarily more curable. Research, however, has shown that screening improves the prognosis of some--but not all--breast cancers, and also that it may lead to unnecessary interventions. The dichotomy between the advertised value of early detection and its actual utility has caused particular controversy in the United States, where the cultural climate emphasizes the importance of obtaining all possible medical information and acting on it. Early detection has probably helped to lower overall breast cancer mortality. But it has proven hard to praise aggressive screening without exaggerating its merits. Women considering genetic breast cancer testing should weight the benefits and limitations of early knowledge.  (+info)

Intentional weight loss and mortality among overweight individuals with diabetes. (4/79)

OBJECTIVE: To estimate the effect of intentional weight loss on mortality in overweight individuals with diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: We performed a prospective analysis with a 12-year mortality follow-up (1959-1972) of 4,970 overweight individuals with diabetes, 40-64 years of age, who were enrolled in the American Cancer Society's Cancer Prevention Study I. Rate ratios (RRs) were calculated, comparing overall death rates, and death from cardiovascular disease (CVD) or diabetes in individuals with and without reported intentional weight loss. RESULTS: Intentional weight loss was reported by 34% of the cohort. After adjustment for initial BMI, sociodemographic factors, health status, and physical activity, intentional weight loss was associated with a 25% reduction in total mortality (RR = 0.75; 95% CI 0.67-0.84), and a 28% reduction in CVD and diabetes mortality (RR = 0.72; 0.63-0.82). Intentional weight loss of 20-29 lb was associated with the largest reductions in mortality (approximately 33%). Weight loss >70 lb was associated with small increases in mortality CONCLUSIONS: Intentional weight loss was associated with substantial reductions in mortality in this observational study of overweight individuals with diabetes.  (+info)

Passive smoking exposure and female breast cancer mortality. (5/79)

BACKGROUND: Several studies have reported positive associations between environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) and increased risk of breast cancer. However, studies of active smoking and risk of breast cancer are equivocal and in general do not support a positive association. To try to resolve this paradox, we examined the association between breast cancer mortality and potential ETS exposure from spousal smoking in an American Cancer Society prospective study of U.S. adult women. METHODS: We assessed breast cancer death rates in a cohort of 146 488 never-smoking, single-marriage women who were cancer free at enrollment in 1982. Breast cancer death rates among women whose husbands smoked were compared with those among women married to men who had never smoked. Cox proportional hazards modeling was used to control for potential risk factors other than ETS exposure. RESULTS: After 12 years of follow-up, 669 cases of fatal breast cancer were observed in the cohort. Overall, we saw no association between exposure to ETS and death from breast cancer (rate ratio [RR] = 1.0; 95% confidence interval [CI] = 0.8-1.2). We did, however, find a small, not statistically significant increased risk of breast cancer mortality among women who were married before age 20 years to smokers (RR = 1. 2; 95% CI = 0.8-1.8). CONCLUSIONS: In contrast to the results of previous studies, this study found no association between exposure to ETS and female breast cancer mortality. The results of our study are particularly compelling because of its prospective design as compared with most earlier studies, the relatively large number of exposed women with breast cancer deaths, and the reporting of exposure by the spouse rather than by proxy.  (+info)

Annual report to the nation on the status of cancer (1973 through 1998), featuring cancers with recent increasing trends. (6/79)

BACKGROUND: The American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), collaborate to provide an annual update on cancer occurrence and trends in the United States. This year's report contains a special feature that focuses on cancers with recent increasing trends. METHODS: From 1992 through 1998, age-adjusted rates and annual percent changes are calculated for cancer incidence and underlying cause of death with the use of NCI incidence and NCHS mortality data. Joinpoint analysis, a model of joined line segments, is used to examine long-term trends for the four most common cancers and for those cancers with recent increasing trends in incidence or mortality. Statistically significant findings are based on a P value of.05 by use of a two-sided test. State-specific incidence and death rates for 1994 through 1998 are reported for major cancers. RESULTS: From 1992 through 1998, total cancer death rates declined in males and females, while cancer incidence rates declined only in males. Incidence rates in females increased slightly, largely because of breast cancer increases that occurred in some older age groups, possibly as a result of increased early detection. Female lung cancer mortality, a major cause of death in women, continued to increase but more slowly than in earlier years. In addition, the incidence or mortality rate increased in 10 other sites, accounting for about 13% of total cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. CONCLUSIONS: Overall cancer incidence and death rates continued to decline in the United States. Future progress will require sustained improvements in cancer prevention, screening, and treatment.  (+info)

The American Cancer Society Cancer Prevention Study II Nutrition Cohort: rationale, study design, and baseline characteristics. (7/79)

BACKGROUND: Large-scale, prospective cohort studies have played a critical role in discovering factors that contribute to variability in cancer risk in human populations. Epidemiologists and volunteers at the American Cancer Society (ACS) were among the first to establish such cohorts, beginning in the early 1950s and continuing through the present, and these ACS cohorts have made landmark contributions in many areas of epidemiologic research. METHODS AND RESULTS: The Cancer Prevention Study II Nutrition Cohort was established in 1992 and was designed to investigate the relation between diet and other lifestyle factors and exposures and the risk of cancer, mortality, and survival. The cohort includes over 84,000 men and 97,000 women who completed a mailed questionnaire in 1992. New questionnaires are sent to surviving cohort members every other year to update exposure information and to ascertain new occurrences of cancer; a 90% response rate was achieved for follow-up questionnaires in 1997 and 1999. Reported cancers are verified through medical records, registry linkage, or death certificates. The cohort is followed actively for all cases of incident cancer and for all causes of death. Through a collaborative effort among ACS national and division staff, volunteers, and the American College of Surgeons, blood samples were collected from a subgroup of 40,000 cohort members and are in storage at a central repository for future investigation of dietary, hormonal, genetic, and other factors and cancer risk. Collection of DNA samples from buccal cells in an additional 50,000 cohort members is underway currently and will be completed in 2002. CONCLUSIONS: This new cohort of both men and women promises to be particularly valuable for the study of cancer occurrence, mortality, and survival as they relate to obesity and weight change, physical activity at various points in life, vitamin supplement use, exogenous hormone use, other medications (such as aspirin and nonsteroidal anti- inflammatory drugs) and cancer screening modalities.  (+info)

Alcohol, folate, methionine, and risk of incident breast cancer in the American Cancer Society Cancer Prevention Study II Nutrition Cohort. (8/79)

Recent studies suggest that the increased risk of breast cancer associated with alcohol consumption may be reduced by adequate folate intake. We examined this question among 66,561 postmenopausal women in the American Cancer Society Cancer Prevention Study II Nutrition Cohort. A total of 1,303 incident cases had accrued during the first 5 years of follow-up. Cox proportional hazards models and stratified analysis were used to examine the relationship between alcohol, dietary and total folate intake, multivitamin use, dietary methionine, and breast cancer. We observed an increasing risk of breast cancer with increasing alcohol consumption (P for trend = 0.01). In the highest category of consumption (15 or more grams of ethanol/day), the risk of breast cancer was 1.26 (95% confidence interval, 1.04-1.53) compared with nonusers. We observed this association with higher alcohol consumption for in situ, localized, and regional disease. We found no association between risk of breast cancer and dietary folate, total folate, multivitamin use, or methionine intake. Furthermore, we found no evidence of an interaction between levels of dietary folate (P for interaction = 0.10) or total folate (P for interaction = 0.61) and alcohol. Nor did we find evidence of an interaction between alcohol consumption and recent or long-term multivitamin use (P for interaction = 0.27). Our results are consistent with a positive association with alcohol but do not support an association with folate or methionine intake or an interaction between folate and alcohol intake on risk of breast cancer.  (+info)

Each January, the American Cancer Society (ACS) publishes a summary of existing recommendations for early cancer detection, including updates, and/or emerging issues that are relevant to screening for cancer. In 2002, the ACS assembled expert groups to update guidelines for cervical cancer screening and breast cancer screening, and to evaluate new technology for colorectal cancer screening. In November 2002, updated guidelines for cervical cancer screening were published in this journal, and breast cancer screening guidelines will be updated in 2003. In this issue, there is a report of a workshop held to review emerging technology for colorectal cancer screening that resulted in a modification of current previous recommendations for fecal occult blood tests, and revised recommendations for the "cancer-related check-up" in which clinical encounters provide case-finding and health-counseling opportunities. Finally, we provide an update of the most recent data pertaining to participation rates in ...
Physical activity appears to be associated with cancer risk. Lower levels of physical activity are associated with higher cancer risk. The explanation for this association may primarily be physical activity contributes to maintenance of a healthy body weight. Additionally, physical activity may also be beneficial through helping to regulate sex hormones, insulin, and prostaglandins, and may promote positive effects on the immune system. A lifestyle that is physically active is also associated with a lower risk of heart disease and diabetes.. American Cancer Society Guidelines on Nutrition and Physical Activity for Cancer Prevention:. In an effort to help the general public and medical professionals develop strategies to reduce cancer risk, the American Cancer Society has published guidelines for diet, weight control, and physical activity. A lifestyle that follows The American Cancer Society Guidelines on Nutrition and Physical Activity for Cancer Prevention is associated with lower mortality ...
A new study has found that long-duration regular use of aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen) may be associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer. Use of aspirin and other NSAIDs has been consistently associated with a reduced risk of colorectal cancer in epidemiological studies, and aspirin reduced risk of colorectal polyp recurrence in two randomized trials. There has also been some evidence from laboratory and epidemiological studies that NSAIDs might influence prostate carcinogenesis, although the association is unclear. To determine whether use of NSAIDs is associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer, Eric J. Jacobs, Ph.D., of the American Cancer Society in Atlanta, and colleagues studied more than 70,000 men participating in the American Cancer Societys Cancer Prevention Study II Nutrition Cohort. During the follow-up from 1992 to 1993 through August 2001, 4,853 cases of prostate cancer were diagnosed among these men. Current use of ...

Epidemiologic evidence supports an inverse association between physical activity and postmenopausal breast cancer. Whether associations exist for moderate activities, such as walking, and whether associations differ by estrogen receptor (ER) status, body mass index (BMI, kg/m2), adult weight gain, or use of postmenopausal hormones (PMH) is unclear. The relation between time spent sitting and breast cancer also is unclear. Among 73,615 postmenopausal women in the American Cancer Society Cancer Prevention Study II Nutrition Cohort, 4,760 women were diagnosed with breast cancer between 1992 and 2009. Extended Cox regression was used to estimate multivariable-adjusted relative risks (RR) of breast cancer in relation to total recreational physical activity, walking, and leisure-time sitting. Differences in associations by ER status, BMI, weight gain, and PMH use were also evaluated. The most active women (those reporting ,42 MET-hours/week physical activity) experienced 25% lower risk of breast ...

Resumo: An update to the American Cancer Society (ACS) guideline regarding screening for the early detection of cervical precancerous lesions and cancer is presented. The guidelines are based on a systematic evidence review, contributions from 6 working groups, and a recent symposium cosponsored by the ACS, the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology, and the American Society for Clinical Pathology, which was attended by 25 organizations. The new screening recommendations address age-appropriate screening strategies, including the use of cytology and high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) testing, follow-up (eg, the management of screen positives and screening intervals for screen negatives) of women after screening, the age at which to exit screening, future considerations regarding HPV testing alone as a primary screening approach, and screening strategies for women vaccinated against HPV16 and HPV18 infections ...
The latest annual report from the American Cancer Society (ACS) surveys cancer in many years up to the present, and provides statistical data about the current status of neoplastic disease in the United States (US) [1,2]. The largest conclusion is that clinical progress against cancer definitely is being made, but further efforts are needed.. ACS cancer statistics for 2016 [1,2]! The new ACS report describes numbers for cancer incidence, deaths, and survival through 2015 [1,2]. These latest figures permit comparison to corresponding measurements for many previous years, and allow predictions to be made for 2016. Several brief discussions about what these figures reveal now are available [e.g., 3-5].. The cancer death rate for men and women fell 23% in the 21 year period from 1991 to 2012 (the latest year for which complete data are available). This progress should be welcomed by everyone! Death from cancer still is second to heart disease for the entire US, but in 21 states it now has become the ...

At this time there are no blood tests or other screening exams that can be used routinely to detect brain tumors before they start to cause symptoms. These tumors usually come to light as a result of signs or symptoms the person is having. In most cases, the patients survival is determined by their age, the type of tumor, and its location.. The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer. As a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers, we fight for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. We save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. As the nations ...

For me, as a medical student and house officer, one of the best sources of information about cancer was the American Cancer Societys Clinical Oncology textbook. Although never professing to provide a comprehensive discussion, its concise chapters were immediately accessible and germane. Despite the fact that the last edition of this book was published almost a decade ago, Clinical Oncology still occupies a well-used space on my bookshelf. Since the last publication of this book, oncology has undergone a considerable metamorphosis. Beyond the advent of new therapeutic and diagnostic tools, the number of oncology textbooks available has grown considerably. With ...

Adequate scientific evidence to stop mass screening programs, such as mammography, has been readily available for more than three decades. In 1976 Pietro M. Gullino presented his findings on the natural history of cancer, showing early detection is really late detection, at the Conference on Breast Cancer: A Report to the Profession, sponsored by the White House, the National Cancer Institute, and the American Cancer Society. He explained: If the time required for a tumor to double its diameter during a known period of time is taken as a measure of growth rate, one can calculate by extrapolation that two-thirds of the duration of a breast cancer remains undetectable by the patient or physician. Long before a breast carcinoma can be detected by present technology, metastatic spread may occur and does in most cases. This report was subsequently published in the journal representing the American Cancer Society (Cancer 1977 Jun;39(6 Suppl):2697-703 ...
Dairy products have been hypothesized to have paradoxical effects on breast cancer risk because they contain both potentially protective compounds, like calcium and vitamin D, and compounds that may increase the risk of cancer, such as hormones and insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I). Studies to date have had inconsistent findings.. For the current study, researchers led by Marji McCullough, ScD, RD, senior epidemiologist in the American Cancer Societys Epidemiology & Surveillance Research department, reviewed dietary questionnaires filled out by more than 68,000 postmenopausal women participating in the Societys Cancer Prevention Study II (CPS-II). They found women who ate the most calcium-rich foods (e.g. low fat milk, cheese, and yogurt) were 20 percent less likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer than those reporting the lowest intake. However, neither use of calcium supplements nor vitamin D intake lowered the risk.. "Our findings suggests that dairy products, composed mainly of ...

Over the holiday weekend, Chevrolet Racing spent its time supporting the American Cancer Societys Making Strides Against Breast Cancer program at the Atlanta Motor Speedway.. [slider id=94620]. Last year, the automaker supported the American Cancer Society for its 100th birthday, and after an overwhelming response from customers, employees and dealers, they decided to keep it going again this year.. Thirty breast cancer survivors were invited to Atlanta Motor Speedway to join in the Chevrolet Camaro SS pace car rides with Nascar drivers Jamie McMurray, Dancia Patrick and Ron Hornaday Jr., whom were also giving out autographs.. Every lap run during the Nascar Sprint Cup Series AdvoCar500 resulted in a $200 donation as well, which was paced by an SS coated in pink paint.. Next month Chevrolet will be announcing more events to come for October, which is Brest Cancer Awareness Month, to support the cause..

Source: National Cancer Institute, Facebook.. Behind breast cancer, there is no cancer diagnosis more common than prostate cancer. According to the American Cancer Societys Cancer Facts & Figures report from 2014, some 233,000 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer, with the disease killing 29,480. Overall, prostate cancer is the fifth-leading overall cause of cancer-related death, and the second-leading cause of cancer death in men.. Of course, the mortality statistics of prostate cancer are just one of the challenging aspects of the disease. Prostate cancer is also a major financial burden on individuals and their families. A report from HealthDay via WebMD last year suggested that the price of prostate cancer surgery can range from as low as $10,100 to as much as $135,000. This cost doesnt factor in additional doctor visits, the possibility for cancer-focused therapy over the long term, and the economic costs of lost productivity while undergoing treatment.. But, there could be great news ...

American Cancer Society (cancer.org). November 9, 2015. By Stacy Simon. A harsh truth about lung cancer is that it doesnt usually cause symptoms until the cancer is already advanced and not able to be cured. Thats why the idea of screening - looking for lung cancer in people who do not have any symptoms - is appealing. It has the potential of finding the cancer earlier, when its easier to treat.. But screening carries risks that may outweigh the benefits for most people. The people who are most likely to benefit from screening are those at higher risk for lung cancer, such as people with a long history of smoking.. How lung screening works. A computed tomography (CT or CAT) scan uses x-rays to produce detailed cross-sectional images of the lungs. Its better than a regular x-ray at finding lung tumors and showing them clearly. Thats why CT scans are used for lung cancer screening.. One drawback of a CT scan is that it finds a lot of abnormalities that turn out not to be cancer but that still ...

These gaps "need to be addressed in order to fulfill the intention of the Affordable Care Act," said Brian Rosen, a senior vice president of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. "There are certainly challenges for cancer patients.". "Cost may still be an issue for those in need of the most care," said Steven Weiss, spokesman for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network. That "makes it critically important for patients looking at premiums to also consider out-of-pocket costs when choosing a plan.". Out-of-pocket costs include a health plans annual deductible, which is the amount before insurance starts paying, as well as any copayments and cost-sharing.. A few numbers tell the story. Take someone under 65 with no access to health insurance on the job and making $24,000 a year - about what many service jobs pay.. Under the health care law, that persons premiums would be capped below 7 percent of his income, about $130 a month. A stretch on a tight budget, yet doable.. But if he gets really ...
