In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.
The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

A class of drugs that differs from other alkylating agents used clinically in that they are monofunctional and thus unable to cross-link cellular macromolecules. Among their common properties are a requirement for metabolic activation to intermediates with antitumor efficacy and the presence in their chemical structures of N-methyl groups, that after metabolism, can covalently modify cellular DNA. The precise mechanisms by which each of these drugs acts to kill tumor cells are not completely understood. (From AMA, Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p2026)
A class of statistical methods applicable to a large set of probability distributions used to test for correlation, location, independence, etc. In most nonparametric statistical tests, the original scores or observations are replaced by another variable containing less information. An important class of nonparametric tests employs the ordinal properties of the data. Another class of tests uses information about whether an observation is above or below some fixed value such as the median, and a third class is based on the frequency of the occurrence of runs in the data.

The role of alternative splicing of the adhesion molecule, CD44, in lymphoid malignancy. (1/23200)

AIM: To investigate the expression of CD44 isoforms containing variant exon 6 (v6) in a well characterised cohort of patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) and chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL), and to correlate this with phenotype and disease course. METHODS: Cryostat sections of OCT embedded diagnostic nodal material from NHL patients and cryopreserved mononuclear preparations from CLL patients were used as sources of RNA. After reverse transcription, PCR was carried out with amplimers positioned at either side of the variant exon insertion site to amplify all possible CD44 isoforms. Those isoforms containing v6 were identified after Southern blotting and hybridisation with a radiolabelled oligonucleotide. RESULTS: Of 32 NHL samples analysed, 16 did not express CD44 isoforms containing v6, six expressed an isoform containing exon v6 alone, and 10 expressed v6 long isoforms which contained exon v6 in addition to other variant exons. These data did not correlate with lymphoma classification, disease staging, or the presence or absence of extranodal disease. However, those patients expressing v6 long CD44 isoforms had a worse overall survival than those that did not. The plateau of the survival curves was 50% compared with 82%. No v6 long isoforms were detected in the 21 CLL samples investigated. CONCLUSIONS: The expression of v6 long CD44 isoforms is associated with aggressive disease in NHL, independent of grade, stage, or presence of extranodal disease.  (+info)

Expression of extracellular matrix proteins in cervical squamous cell carcinoma--a clinicopathological study. (2/23200)

AIM: To evaluate the intracellular and peritumoral expression of matrix proteins in squamous cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix using immunohistochemistry. METHODS: 71 squamous cell carcinomas and 10 controls were stained for laminin, fibronectin, and collagen IV. Cytoplasmic staining in tumour cells and peritumoral deposition of matrix proteins were evaluated. The association between staining results and patient age, tumour stage, histological grade, and survival was studied. RESULTS: Positive cytoplasmic staining for laminin, fibronectin, and collagen IV was observed in 17 (23.9%), 27 (38%), and 10 (14.1%) cases, respectively. Staining for laminin was most pronounced in the invasive front of tumour islands, while for fibronectin and collagen IV it appeared to be diffuse. Peritumoral staining for laminin and collagen IV was detected in 12 cases (16.9%). Early stage (Ia1-Ia2) tumours were uniformly negative for all three proteins. Cytoplasmic staining for laminin correlated with positive staining for fibronectin and collagen IV, and with the presence of a peritumoral deposition of collagen IV and laminin. There was no correlation with any of the three markers between staining results and patient age, stage, grade, or survival. CONCLUSIONS: Expression of extracellular matrix proteins in some cervical squamous cell carcinomas might reflect the enhanced ability of these tumours to modify the peritumoral stroma. This ability seems to be absent in early stage tumours. The correlation between intracytoplasmic and peritumoral expression of matrix proteins supports the evidence of their synthesis by tumour cells. However, this property did not correlate with disease outcome in this study.  (+info)

Is hospital care involved in inequalities in coronary heart disease mortality? Results from the French WHO-MONICA Project in men aged 30-64. (3/23200)

OBJECTIVES: The goal of the study was to assess whether possible disparities in coronary heart disease (CHD) management between occupational categories (OC) in men might be observed and contribute to the increasing inequalities in CHD morbidity and mortality reported in France. METHODS: The data from the three registers of the French MONICA Collaborative Centres (MCC-Lille, MCC-Strasbourg, and MCC-Toulouse) were analysed during two period: 1985-87 and 1989-91. Acute myocardial infarctions and coronary deaths concerning men, aged 30-64 years, were included. Non-professionally active and retired men were excluded. Results were adjusted for age and MCC, using a logistic regression analysis. RESULTS: 605 and 695 events were analysed for 1985-87 and 1989-91, respectively. Out of hospital cardiac arrests, with or without cardiac resuscitation, and 28 day case fatality rates were lower among upper executives in both periods. A coronarography before the acute event had been performed more frequently in men of this category and the proportion of events that could be hospitalised was higher among them. In both periods, the management of acute myocardial infarctions in hospital and prescriptions on discharge were similar among occupational categories. CONCLUSIONS: For patients who could be admitted to hospital, the management was found to be similar among OCs, as was the 28 day case fatality rate among the hospitalised patients. In contrast, lower prognosis and higher probability of being hospitalised after the event among some categories suggest that pre-hospital care and the patient's conditions before the event are the primary factors involved.  (+info)

Intrahepatic recurrence after curative resection of hepatocellular carcinoma: long-term results of treatment and prognostic factors. (4/23200)

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate the long-term results of treatment and prognostic factors in patients with intrahepatic recurrence after curative resection of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Recent studies have demonstrated the usefulness of re-resection, transarterial oily chemoembolization (TOCE), or percutaneous ethanol injection therapy (PEIT) in selected patients with intrahepatic recurrent HCC. The overall results of a treatment strategy combining these modalities have not been fully evaluated, and the prognostic factors determining survival in these patients remain to be clarified. METHODS: Two hundred and forty-four patients who underwent curative resection for HCC were followed for intrahepatic recurrence, which was treated aggressively with a strategy including different modalities. Survival results after recurrence and from initial hepatectomy were analyzed, and prognostic factors were determined by univariate and multivariate analysis using 27 clinicopathologic variables. RESULTS: One hundred and five patients (43%) with intrahepatic recurrence were treated with re-resection (11), TOCE (71), PEIT (6), systemic chemotherapy (8) or conservatively (9). The overall 1-year, 3-year, and 5-year survival rates from the time of recurrence were 65.5%, 34.9%, and 19.7%, respectively, and from the time of initial hepatectomy were 78.4%, 47.2%, and 30.9%, respectively. The re-resection group had the best survival, followed by the TOCE group. Multivariate analysis revealed Child's B or C grading, serum albumin < or = 40 g/l, multiple recurrent tumors, recurrence < or = 1 year after hepatectomy, and concurrent extrahepatic recurrence to be independent adverse prognostic factors. CONCLUSIONS: Aggressive treatment with a multimodality strategy could result in prolonged survival in patients with intrahepatic recurrence after curative resection for HCC. Prognosis was determined by the liver function status, interval to recurrence, number of recurrent tumors, any concurrent extrahepatic recurrence, and type of treatment.  (+info)

Surgery-related factors and local recurrence of Wilms tumor in National Wilms Tumor Study 4. (5/23200)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the prognostic factors for local recurrence in Wilms tumor. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Current therapy for Wilms tumor has evolved through four studies of the National Wilms Tumor Study Group. As adverse prognostic factors were identified, treatment of children with Wilms tumor has been tailored based on these factors. Two-year relapse-free survival of children in the fourth study (NWTS-4) exceeded 91%. Factors once of prognostic import for local recurrence may lose their significance as more effective therapeutic regimens are devised. METHODS: Children evaluated were drawn from the records of NWTS-4. A total of 2482 randomized or followed patients were identified. Local recurrence, defined as recurrence in the original tumor bed, retroperitoneum, or within the abdominal cavity or pelvis, occurred in 100 children. Using a nested case-control study design, 182 matched controls were selected. Factors were analyzed for their association with local failure. Relative risks and 95% confidence intervals were calculated, taking into account the matching. RESULTS: The largest relative risks for local recurrence were observed in patients with stage III disease, those with unfavorable histology (especially diffuse anaplasia), and those reported to have tumor spillage during surgery. Multiple regression analysis adjusting for the combined effects of histology, lymph node involvement, and age revealed that tumor spillage remained significant. The relative risk of local recurrence from spill was largest in children with stage II disease. The absence of lymph node biopsy was also associated with an increased relative risk of recurrence, which was largest in children with stage I disease. The survival of children after local recurrence is poor, with an average survival rate at 2 years after relapse of 43%. Survival was dependent on initial stage: those who received more therapy before relapse had a worse prognosis. CONCLUSIONS: This study has demonstrated that surgical rupture of the tumor must be prevented by the surgeon, because spills produce an increased risk of local relapse. Both local and diffuse spills produce this risk. Stage II children with local spill appear to require more aggressive therapy than that used in NWTS-4. The continued critical importance of lymph node sampling in conjunction with nephrectomy for Wilms tumor is also established. Absence of lymph node biopsy may result in understaging and inadequate treatment of the child and may produce an increased risk of local recurrence.  (+info)

Serum triglyceride: a possible risk factor for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. (6/23200)

BACKGROUND: We aimed to determine the relationship between ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and serum concentrations of lipids and apolipoproteins. METHODS: A cohort of 21 520 men, aged 35-64 years, was recruited from men attending the British United Provident Association (BUPA) clinic in London for a routine medical examination in 1975-1982. Smoking habits, weight, height and blood pressure were recorded at entry. Lipids and apolipoproteins were measured in stored serum samples from the 30 men who subsequently died of ruptured AAA and 150 matched controls. RESULTS: Triglyceride was strongly related to risk of ruptured AAA. In univariate analyses the risk in men on the 90th centile of the distribution relative to the risk in men on the 10th (RO10-90) was 12 (95% confidence interval [CI] : 3.8-37) for triglyceride, 5.5 (95% CI: 1.8-17) for apolipoprotein B (apoB) (the protein component of low density lipoprotein [LDL]), 0.15 (95% CI : 0.04-0.56) for apo A1 (the protein component of high density lipoprotein [HDL]), 3.7 (95% CI: 1.4-9.4) for body mass index and 3.0 (95% CI: 1.1-8.5) for systolic blood pressure. Lipoprotein (a) (Lp(a)) was not a significant risk factor (RO10-90 = 1.6, 95% CI: 0.6-3.0). In multivariate analysis triglyceride retained its strong association. CONCLUSION: Triglyceride appears to be a strong risk factor for ruptured AAA, although further studies are required to clarify this. If this and other associations are cause and effect, then changing the distribution of risk factors in the population (by many people stopping smoking and adopting a lower saturated fat diet and by lowering blood pressure) could achieve an important reduction in mortality from ruptured AAA.  (+info)

Respiratory symptoms and long-term risk of death from cardiovascular disease, cancer and other causes in Swedish men. (7/23200)

BACKGROUND: Depressed respiratory function and respiratory symptoms are associated with impaired survival. The present study was undertaken to assess the relation between respiratory symptoms and mortality from cardiovascular causes, cancer and all causes in a large population of middle-aged men. METHODS: Prospective population study of 6442 men aged 51-59 at baseline, free of clinical angina pectoris and prior myocardial infarction. RESULTS: During 16 years there were 1804 deaths (786 from cardiovascular disease, 608 from cancer, 103 from pulmonary disease and 307 from any other cause). Men with effort-related breathlessness had increased risk of dying from all of the examined diseases. After adjustment for age, smoking habit and other risk factors, the relative risk (RR) associated with breathlessness of dying from coronary disease was 1.43 (95% CI : 1.16-1.77), from stroke 1.77 (95% CI: 1.07-2.93), from any cardiovascular disease 1.48 (95% CI : 1.24-1.76), cancer 1.36 (95% CI : 1.11-1.67) and from any cause 1.62 (95% CI: 1.44-1.81). An independent effect of breathlessness on cardiovascular death, cancer death and mortality from all causes was found in life-time non-smokers, and also if men with chest pain not considered to be angina were excluded. An independent effect was also found if all deaths during the first half of the follow-up were excluded. Men with cough and phlegm, without breathlessness, also had an elevated risk of dying from cardiovascular disease and cancer, but after adjustment for smoking and other risk factors this was no longer significant. However, a slightly elevated independent risk of dying from any cause was found (RR = 1.18 [95% CI: 1.02-1.36]). CONCLUSION: A positive response to a simple question about effort related breathlessness predicted subsequent mortality from several causes during a follow-up period of 16 years, independently of smoking and other risk factors.  (+info)

Socioeconomic inequalities and disability pension in middle-aged men. (8/23200)

BACKGROUND: The issue of inequalities in health has generated much discussion and socioeconomic status is considered an important variable in studies of health. It is frequently used in epidemiological studies, either as a possible risk factor or a confounder and the aim of this study was to analyse the relation between socioeconomic status and risk of disability pension. METHODS: Five complete birth year cohorts of middle-aged male residents in Malmo were invited to a health survey and 5782 with complete data constituted the cohort in this prospective study. Each subject was followed for approximately 11 years and nationwide Swedish data registers were used for surveillance. RESULTS: Among the 715 men (12%), granted disability pension during follow-up, three groups were distinguished. The cumulative incidence of disability pension among blue collar workers was 17% and among lower and higher level white collar workers, 11% and 6% respectively. With simultaneous adjustment for biological risk factors and job conditions, the relative risk for being granted a disability pension (using higher level white collar workers as reference) was 2.5 among blue collar workers and 1.6 among lower level white collar workers. CONCLUSIONS: Socioeconomic status, as defined by occupation, is a risk factor for being granted disability pension even after adjusting for work conditions and other risk factors for disease.  (+info)

a) localized resectable- the tumor is located in one place (T1-T2),. b) localized unresectable - the tumor is present in one place however cannot be removed,. c) advanced - the tumor has spread to other organs,. d) recurrent - the cancer is back after treatment.. Unfortunately, liver cancer survival rates are low as the tumor can be undetected for a long time till any signs appear. More than a half of people affected are men; the common age of liver cancer is 60.. The liver cancer survival rates worldwide show that 7% of patients live up to 5 year after diagnosis. If the cancer is removed surgically, 75% of liver cancer patients can live one more year, 30% reach the survival mark of 5 years and 50% - 3 years.. In terms of primary cancer the liver cancer survival rates are quite high provided that a liver transplant can be performed. Liver cancer survival rates reach 5 years in 75% of cases. For metastatic cases liver transplants have a survival rate coming to zero because in some time cancer ...

The department did note a significant racial disparity, however, with survival rates for white men and women about 10 percentage points higher than those for black men and women. That was similar to the national racial gap.. Bresnitz said the racial differences may be because blacks are being diagnosed later since early detection generally means a better outcome. In addition, blacks may not have the same access to treatment and support services, he said.. The department also noted that survival rates vary greatly by type of cancer, sex and age.. The report found that the overall survival rate was boosted because people with the most common cancers - breast, cervical, colorectal, lung and prostate - were living longer than they did 20 years ago..

Liver cancer survival rates indicate the chances a cancer patient has of surviving the disease for a specified length of time. The rates are by no means a definite indicator of what will happen to a patient; they can at best predict a patients chances of what might happen to him, if a type of treatment plan is opted for, based on what has happened to other patients in similar circumstances. They serve as a guide to a patient and his family to know what they can expect if they choose a particular type of treatment or if they should consider one at all rather than just opt for pain relievers and sedation.. The liver is the largest gland in the body that performs the many vital functions of storing vitamins and nutrients, producing proteins that are required for blood clotting, creating bile required for digestion and of breaking down and filtering toxins from blood..

Targeted therapy, targeted therapies are drugs that interfere with one specific property or function of a cancer cell, rather than acting to kill all rapidly growing cells indiscriminately. The goal is to completely rid the body of leukemia cells that have not been found by common blood or marrow tests. Understanding survival rates, survival rates show how many people live for a certain length of time after being told they have cancer. This means these factors may increase your chances of getting acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Types of supportive and preventive treatments that can be used for patients undergoing treatment for leukemia include the following: Vaccines against the flu or pneumonia Blood or platelet transfusions Anti-nausea medications Antibiotics or antiviral medications to treat or prevent infections White blood cell growth factors.

In an analysis of 22 clinical trials representing 14 different cancer/treatment combinations, the association between BMI and survival was not consistent across cancer type or stage. There was no statistically significant evidence that BMI at a cutpoint of 25 kg/m2 was associated with overall survival. However, there was good evidence that the relationship between BMI and cancer survival differed by sex. On average, elevated BMI was associated with better overall survival in males, but neither better nor worse overall survival in females. This association was maintained when sex-specific cancers were excluded, when treatment regimens were restricted to dose based on BSA, and when early-stage cancers were excluded. The results remained consistent when a BMI cutpoint of 30 kg/m2 was examined and when analyses were restricted to individuals who survived at least one year following trial enrollment. The latter analysis emphasizes the potentially durable impact of BMI on long-term survival.. The ...

One of the first questions many people ask when first diagnosed with cancer is about their prognosis. They might want to know whether the cancer is relatively easy or more difficult to cure. The doctor cant predict the future, but often they give the estimates based on the experiences of other people with the same cancer. Survival statistics can be confusing and frightening. Survival rates cant tell about the situation specifically. The statistics may be impersonal and not very helpful, said Dr. K.K. Aggarwal, Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee and President, Heart Care Foundation of India.
Survival rate is a part of survival analysis, indicating the percentage of people in a study or treatment group who are alive for a given period of time after diagnosis. Survival rates are important for prognosis, but because this rate is based on the population as a whole, an individual prognosis may be different depending on newer treatments since the last statistical analysis as well as the overall general health of the patient.[citation needed] There are various types of survival rates (discussed below). They often serve as endpoints of clinical trials, and should not be confused with mortality rates, a population metric.. ...

The above figure compares long term survival in a subgroup of a trial that was published in Circulation in 1980. This was a randomized controlled trial of just over 1000 patients with known cardiovascular disease who were treated with medical therapy alone. The patients were randomized to two treatment groups and were followed for 5 years. In the primary analysis, there was no statistically significant difference in survival between the two groups. However, a subgroup analysis that compared only patients with 3-vessel disease and LV dysfunction at baseline (~200 patients in each group) found that the outcomes were significantly better in group B (p=0.025).. So what was this treatment that was so successful in reducing mortality in group B? There was no treatment. The patients were randomized to the two groups and then simply followed with usual therapy. This study was designed to show the danger of subgroup analyses and why they should be taken with a grain of salt. When the authors looked ...
Even as cancer treatment improves and survival rates go up, so too does the number of people afflicted with the deadly disease, experts said ahead of World Cancer Day.
Despite the progressive and incurable nature of almost all MBC, median survival after diagnosis with metastatic disease has been increasing, resulting in a growing number of women living with MBC in the United States. The increased survival is especially noted for women diagnosed at younger ages. We estimate a 2-fold increase in 5-year relative survival rate from 18% to 36%, for women diagnosed with de novo stage IV at age 15-49 between 1992-1994 and 2005-2012, respectively, translating into an increase of approximately one third in the number of women living with MBC, from 105,354 in 1990 to 138,622 in 2013. We further project that by 2017, there will be 154,794 women living with MBC in the United States.. To our knowledge, this is the first time that the number of women living with MBC in the United States has been estimated. These estimates provide a new perspective on the population burden of breast cancer and have great potential significance to the research and advocacy community working ...
Survival analysis plays a key role in many cost-effectiveness analyses and published guidelines are available to support the use of standard methods of survival extrapolation. However, the advent of new technologies with different methods of action, particularly in oncology, has changed the nature of survival and, in some cases, introduced the possibility of cure.. Standard methods of extrapolation may struggle to capture these survival patterns and, hence, fail to capture the full value associated with these new technologies. During this webinar, presenters will recap the importance and relevance of extrapolation for survival analysis, introduce the concept of heterogeneity among patients in terms of survival, and demonstrate the implications for the use of standard approaches to survival extrapolation.. More advanced approaches involving mixture and mixture cure modelling will be presented and explored as possible solutions to capture and account for this heterogeneity. In addition, the ...
An important problem in oncology is comparing chemotherapy (chemo) agents in terms of their effects on survival or progression-free survival time. When the goal is to evaluate individual agents, a difficulty commonly encountered with observational data is that many patients receive a chemo combination including two or more agents. Because agents given in combination may interact, quantifying the contribution of each individual agent to the combinations overall effect is problematic. Still, if on average combinations including a particular agent confer longer survival, then that agent may be considered superior to agents whose combinations confer shorter survival. Motivated by this idea, we propose a definition of individual agent effects based on observational survival data from patients treated with many different chemo combinations. We define an individual agent effect as the average of the effects of the chemo combinations that include the agent. Similarly, we define the effect of each pair ...
A couple years ago I was questioned if I knew what the most fatal gynecologic most cancers was and I answered Perfectly, breast most cancers of program. Oh, how I was incorrect. The American Most cancers Culture estimates that the common 5 12 months survival rate of breast most cancers at any phase to actually be 89 p.c. Although no most cancers is great which is a very great rate. The right reply to the query is ovarian most cancers, and its 5 12 months survival rate (believed by the American most cancers modern society) is only 46 p.c. We want to find out why this most cancers is so fatal.. Most cancers is a risky and mysterious matter to people today that never know a great deal about it. Perfectly, anyone is made up of cells, cells are what make up tissue and tissue is what makes up our organs. Generally when a cell will get previous and worn out it dies just like we do and a new cell takes its place. Our human body produces these new cells by escalating and dividing wholesome cells. At ...
While this is a more complex issue than I can adequately address in this post, I am going to include a short answer I wrote on Quora about a year after my own diagnosis with lung cancer - at which time I had just about reached my statistical expectation for life expectancy with a Stage 4 diagnosis. You see, according to the abstract numbers you get through pretty much any Internet search on survival rates, Stage 4 lung cancer does not fair very well. If you believe the numbers, youre just supposed to die. Quickly. So I did some soul searching, and came to terms with what dying might mean to me. Then I moved along because, for one thing, I know a little bit about reading statistics and it was clear that they did not apply to me. (My demographic, for one thing, was not properly represented, nor was the collection of treatments that had been introduced in the previous five to ten years, which is about how out of date most survival rate statistics are when you get them.) Besides, even if cancer ...

The breast cancer survival rate for Stage 4 breast cancer is much lower than for breast cancer detected at earlier stages.. Stage 4 breast cancer, or advanced breast cancer, has metastasized to other tissue including bone tissue, lung tissue, or the liver. When breast cancer has overwhelmed the bodys natural defenses and spread this far by the time the cancer is first diagnosed, the 5-year survival rate drops to 16%-20% in the United States (American Cancer Society).. Up to 5% of white women in the U.S., and up to 9% of black women have advanced breast cancer spread to distant tissue at the time of first diagnosis (SEER). This difference is usually attributed to poverty and lack of health insurance.. In general, women who have advanced breast cancer at the time of diagnosis live approximately 18 months after diagnosis (median survival rate). Those who are still alive five years after their diagnosis of advanced breast cancer can live an additional 3.5 years (median survival rate) according to ...

A colon cancer survival rate refers to the percentage of people who were reported still living after being diagnosed with the cancer about 5 yrs ago.. There are already a lot of Americans that were diagnosed (and still being diagnosed) with cancer of the colon today. In 2005, more than 70,000 men and almost 70,000 women were diagnosed with colon cancer. In addition, more than 25,000 lives from each gender are being taken annually in the US but the fortunate news is, the colon cancer survival rate is also getting higher as the years progress.. The reason for this is the better health care facilities and services, faster treatment and modern advances. Many physicians believe in the fact that if only most cancer cases are detected early, the rate of survival would surge sky high. The same as cancer of the colon - it can be avoided altogether if there is early detection and more people undergoes colonoscopy as one of the procedures to be done to detect colon cancer.. More less intrusive techniques ...

OBJECTIVES: With this study we aimed to compare survival rates for children with Down syndrome in 2 time periods, 1 before prenatal screening (1988-1990) and 1 contemporaneous with screening (1998-2000), and to examine the frequency of comorbidities and their influence on survival rates. METHODS: Record-linkage was performed between the population-based Victorian Birth Defects Register and records of deaths in children up to 15 years of age collected under the auspice of the Consultative Council on Obstetric and Pediatric Mortality and Morbidity. Cases of Down syndrome were coded according to the presence or absence of comorbidities by using the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision classification of birth defects. Kaplan-Meier survival functions and log rank tests for equality of survival distributions were performed. RESULTS: Of infants liveborn with Down syndrome in 1998-2000, 90% survived to 5 years of age, compared with 86% in the earlier cohort. With fetal deaths ...
According to the latest numbers released by the United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States, surpassed only by heart disease. The CDC reports over half a million deaths from cancer in 2014, and the United States National Cancer Institute (NCI) reports 454.8 new cases of cancer per 100,000 people per year, with an estimate of 1,685,210 new cases of cancer diagnosed in 2016. Between 2008 and 2012, the number of cancer deaths was 171.2 per 100,000 men and women per year. Globally, the leading cause of cancer death in high income economies in 2015 was trachea, bronchus, and lung cancers (49.5 deaths per 100,000), followed by colon and rectum cancers (27.5 deaths per 100,000) and breast cancer (15.6 per 100,000). Cancer is not a leading cause of death in low income economies, where the leading cause of death is communicable diseases. Cancer survival rates vary by the type of cancer, stage at diagnosis, treatment given ...

Read report.. Cancer survival is a key measure of the effectiveness of healthcare systems. EUROCARE - the largest cooperative study of population-based cancer survival in Europe - has shown persistent differences between countries for cancer survival, although in general, cancer survival is improving. Major changes in cancer diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation occurred in the early 2000s. EUROCARE-5 assesses their effect on cancer survival in 29 European countries.. ...
Scotland has the lowest life expectancy in Western Europe, the slowest rate of health improvement in Europe and wide health inequalities (Hanlon, Lawder et al. 2005). Previous research has demonstrated that Scottish cancer survival rates are similarly poor; for example, Gatta, Ciccolallo et al. (2006) found that cancer survival rates for Scottish women were the lowest in Europe and for men they were in the bottom four. In addition to deprivation, one of the many possible influences on health relates to access to services. This research will use individual level data provided by the Scottish Longitudinal Studies (SLS) to explore cancer survival in the Scottish context using survival analysis techniques. The analysis will examine whether cancer survival is predicted by levels of deprivation (individual and area), access and proximity to health services and the level of remoteness of the area of residence.. This research is different from Sharpe, McMahon et al. (2014) recent work which has focused ...
One thing I have found is that the best myeloma centers have a far better 1 year survival rate than the average center which provides data to the National Cancer Institute. Some of the best centers report 1 year relative survival of between the mid to high 90%s. And as I had reported before, the survival rate improves with each year that your live. You can see that analysis if you just CLICK HERE. So, I would hope and pray that the 4 year survival for patients who were diagnosed in 2009 will also show a 19% improvement over the recent 4 year survival rate. Maybe, the entire health care system is just slow in digesting the newest and most effective myeloma treatments, and as a result the ones that are receiving the best care, or second opinions from a myeloma expert are just too small a component of the total myeloma patient population to make a dent in the numbers. This will not change until these best methods spread through osmosis throughout the health care system. What I dont understand is ...

Low ovarian cancer survival rates are being targeted in a sweeping reform of research into the disease in Australia as new subgroups have been identified.
If you look at the third point, overall survival, the median overall survival in this study was 9.3 months at a follow-up for 15 months. The [?? 4:24] overall survival rates were 41% in one year, 22% at two years and three years which again suggests that there is a form of tail as we have seen in other diseases.. What we analysed then was survival, depending on whether patients had a benefit of this treatment or not. As you can see in green, those patients who had a complete or partial response on the left according to RECIST, on the right to IR RECIST. All patients were still alive at the time of the analysis with 100% one year and 100% two year overall survival rates. If you look on the left side patients with stable disease one year overall survival was 69%, patients with progressive disease one year overall survival was 33%. Of interest, if you look on the left side you see two year overall survival 11% and three year overall survival 11%. These were patients who had pseudoprogression. ...
A study published in Lancet Oncology in 2007 calculates cancer survival rates for both men and women in the United States, the United Kingdom, and the European Union as a whole. The study claims that the most important determinants of cancer survival are early diagnosis, early treatment, and access to the best drugs, and that the United States does very well on all three criteria. Early diagnosis helps survival, but it may also distort the comparisons of five or even ten-year survival rates. In any case, the calculated five-year survival rates are much better in the US: they are about 65% for both men and women, while they are much lower in the other countries, especially for men. These apparent advantages in cancer survival rates are large enough to be worth a lot to persons having access to the American health system.. ...

Figure 4. TNFR1 expression inversely correlates with survival over the full range of the survival curve over all 143 samples including all primary tumor groups. In all 4 graphs, survival is defined as the number of months each patient survived following the first diagnosis of bone metastasis. A, the total set of 143 samples with known survival data was subdivided into 4 quartiles based on survival time. The mean and median TNFR1 expression in the 4 quartiles descends over the shortest to the longest survivors. The Mann-Whitney test was applied to medians of the lowest (x ≤ 5) and highest (x ≥ 38) survival quartiles. The Kruskal-Wallis test was conducted on the medians of 4 groups of samples. B, this graph depicts the Kaplan-Meier survival curves in the total set of 143 samples, using the median of TNFR1 expressions as the cut point to create the high expressing (high) and the low expressing (low) patients groups.

Latest Infectious Disease News By Peter Schelden on 02/21/2020 3:43 PM Source: MedicineNet Health News As the global death toll tops 2,100, COVID-19 infections continue to spread in countries across the world, including in the U.S. The region with the most infections is the West Coast, with 11 confirmed cases out of 15 total. In comparison, the East Coast has confirmed only one case. There are nine confirmed COVID-19 cases in California, including one patient recently evacuated from the Diamond Princess cruise ship in Japan. Another case was reported last week in Arizona involving a man in his 20s, according to The Arizona Republic. The first confirmed case in the U.S. appeared in Washington state. Other people have tested positive elsewhere in the US. Two cases have been confirmed in Illinois, one in Wisconsin, and one in Texas. The only East Coast state with any confirmed COVID-19 cases is Massachusetts, which reported a Boston man in his 20s was infected earlier this month. An additional 13 ...

Prognostic factors associated with clinical presentation include the number of tumors, presence of ulceration, and fixation of tumors to underlying tissue. Survival outcome is significantly worse for dogs with ulcerated mammary carcinomas with a median survival time of 118 days and 1- and 2-year survival rates of 10.8% and 5.4%, respectively, compared to a median survival time of 443 days and 1- and 2-year survival rates of 52.6% and 45.0%, respectively, for dogs with non-ulcerated mammary carcinomas.. The use of desmopressin in the perioperative period significantly improves median survival times in dogs with grade II and III mammary carcinomas. In one prospective study of 18 dogs treated with desmopressin and 10 dogs treated with a saline placebo, the overall median survival time was significantly longer in dogs treated with desmopressin (809 days) compared to dogs in the placebo group (237 days) with 17% and 80% of dogs dying because of disease-related reasons in each group, respectively. ...
During 1992-97, the five-year relative survival proportions for all cancers for females (63%) were higher than those for males (57%). For cancer of the kidney, the five year survival rate was similar for males and females (60% and 58% respectively). Differences in survival rates between males and females were observed for people diagnosed with cancer of the bladder (71% and 65% respectively). The greatest difference in five year survival rates was experienced by people with Thyroid cancer with women having higher survival rates than men (96% and 88% respectively). There were similar five year survival rates for people with Hodgkins Lymphoma (males 83% and females 84%) while for people with Leukaemia there was a slightly higher survival rate for women (43%) than for men (41%) (AIHW 2001). ...

A study published in this weeks Journal of the American Medical Association suggests that black women with breast cancer have shorter survival rates due to a higher incidence of other illnesses, such as diabetes and hypertension.
Unfortunately, survival rates are a bad way of evaluating the effectiveness of screening. Two biases (lead time bias, and length bias) occur when the evaluation of screening is done based on survival rates. Survival rates can appear better when 1) disease is diagnosed earlier by screening, even if treatment is not effective or harmful simply because the patient is aware of the diagnosis for a longer period of time than they would have been otherwise (i.e. lead time bias), and 2) periodic screening is more likely to detect slow growing tumors that are less aggressive and take longer, or will never, cause symptoms and death (i.e. length bias). Again, survival can appear better with screening than without screening even if the treatment is ineffective, or is harmful. ...
Recently, members of the CIMBCR conducted a retrospective study of high and low risk patients, and obtained some outstanding incites into improved survival for patients with high risk genetic features. Between 2008 and 2012, 715 patients with multiple myeloma identified by FISH and/or cytogenetic data with upfront auto, HCT were identified in the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research database. HRM(high risk myeloma) was defined as del17p, t(4;14), t(14;16), hypodiploidy (,45 chromosomes excluding -Y) or chromosome 1p and 1q abnormalities; all others were non-HRM. The most significant finding was that HRM patients who had post transplant consolidation or maintenance had a 3 year overall survival rate of 81% versus just 48% for those without post transplant treatment. So HRM patients are 2.7 times more likely to die in three years if they do not have post transplant treatment. You can view the study if you CLICK HERE. ...
Dr. Ahmedin Jemal, Ph.D. of the American Cancer Society says 5-year survival rates for nearly every form of cancer have increased dramatically
Pancreatic cancer is known to be the deadliest of all common cancers. Despite all efforts in pancreatic cancer treatment, the five-year survival rates at diagnosis over the past 20 years have only increased from 5% to 8%. Assuming that pancreatic cancer is going to become the second most frequent cause of cancer related death in the next 20 years, we are all encouraged to treat patients in clinical trials to gain improvements in this devastating disease. Areas covered: This review will provide a summary of pancreatic cancer treatment over the last 20 years, starting with the pivotal study in 1997 which showed the superiority of gemcitabine over 5-FU in advanced pancreatic cancer and is marked as the beginning of a new era in pancreatic cancer treatment ...
The median age of the patients was 61 years, and 67 percent were male.. Data from this trial, which were published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology in 2014, showed that some patients had durable responses that persisted even after discontinuation of the treatment.. The investigators followed the 107 patients for up to five years (with a minimum of 45 months of follow-up) from the time a patient received his or her first dose of nivolumab, and calculated overall survival (OS), reported at AACR.. The five-year OS in all 107 patients was 34 percent, and OS rates appeared to plateau at around 48 months, which is indicative of long-term benefit in some patients, although more follow-up is needed to fully appreciate the benefit of nivolumab monotherapy, Hodi said.. Survival rates were similar for the 17 patients who received the 3mg/kg dose and the remaining 90 patients who received one of the other doses (0.1 mg, 0.3 mg, 1 mg, and 10 mg nivolumab/kg), he said.. At 12 months, the OS in patients ...

The reason a 5-year relative survival rate is the standard used to assess mortality rates is due to most cancer patients going downhill after this period. Its exceptionally bad for business and the cancer industry knows it. They could never show the public the true 97% statistical failure rate in treating long-term metastatic cancers. If they did publish the long-term statistics for all cancers administered cytotoxic chemotherapy, that is 10+ years and produced the objective data on rigorous evaluations including the cost-effectiveness, impact on the immune system, quality of life, morbidity and mortality, it would be very clear to the world that chemotherapy makes little to no contribution to cancer survival at all. No such study has ever been conducted by independent investigators in the history of chemotherapy. The only studies available come from industry funded institutions and scientists and none of them have ever inclusively quantified the above variables ...

In high-income countries, we have nearly reached optimisation of present anticancer treatments, says Professor Kathy Pritchard-Jones.. New regulatory approval and research strategies are urgently needed to speed the development of new, effective, and safer treatments for children with cancer if we are to continue to improve the cure rate, reduce toxicity compared to existing treatments, and minimise side effects in later life, she continues.. Although more children and young people in high-income countries are surviving cancer than ever before, cancer remains the leading cause of death from disease in children aged 1 to 15 years. More than 5,000 children still lose their lives to cancer every year in these regions.. Increased participation in international, collaborative clinical trials has successfully raised survival from 30% to 80% over the last half century. But an increasingly complex and strict regulatory environment for clinical research and data sharing is limiting childrens access ...
The five-year survival rate for the disease increased, moving from 8 to 9 percent.* This is the third straight year that the five-year survival rate has climbed.. This moderate but critical shift highlights that we are making progress and that we need to continue to accelerate our efforts, said Julie Fleshman, JD, MBA, president and CEO of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. I am extremely grateful to our supporters and the amazing patients that participate in clinical trials helping to make this progress possible.. While there are successes to celebrate, there is much work to be done for patients today, and for those who will be diagnosed in 2017. It is estimated that 53,670 Americans will be diagnosed this year and 43,090 people will die from the disease.. Pancreatic cancer remains the third leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States, killing more people than breast cancer. The disease is projected to become the second leading cause of cancer-related death around ...
