Glutamine and glutamate are known to play important roles in cancer biology. However, no detailed information is available in terms of their levels of involvement in various biological processes across different cancer types, whereas such knowledge could be critical for understanding the distinct characteristics of different cancer types. Our computational study aimed to examine the functional roles of glutamine and glutamate across different cancer types. We conducted a comparative analysis of gene expression data of cancer tissues versus normal control tissues of 11 cancer types to understand glutamine and glutamate metabolisms in cancer. Specifically, we developed a linear regression model to assess differential contributions by glutamine and/or glutamate to each of seven biological processes in cancer versus control tissues. While our computational predictions were consistent with some of the previous observations, multiple novel predictions were made: (1) glutamine is generally not involved in

Undergoing treatment for pediatric cancer can be a daunting experience for patients and their families. But thanks to one Business School undergrad, some of UNCs youngest and bravest patients are getting by with a little help from their friends.. Participating in a service activity for Business Cares - UNC Kenan-Flaglers signature philanthropy initiative - was an eye-opening experience for Alex Pritts (BSBA 17). He listened intently as Elise Herman shared her son Coopers five-year battle with brain cancer - the inspiration behind Super Coopers Little Red Wagon Foundation.. As Cooper underwent treatment, Herman and her husband Justin (MBA 05) discovered the unique challenges faced by pediatric cancer patients and their families. They also came to realize that few organizations provide the resources and assistance these families need most - and they were determined to help.. In 2010, the Herman family launched Super Coopers Little Red Wagon Foundation. Its apartment-style accommodations - ...
This pharmacokinetic study of nivolumab showed that there is little ethnic difference in the handling of nivolumab.Nivolumab was well tolerated in Korean patients.Background.This phase I study of nivolumab, an anti‐programmed cell death‐1 (anti‐PD‐1) monoclonal antibody, investigated the pharmacokinetics and safety of nivolumab in Korean patients with advanced solid tumors. Findings were compared with results from Japan and the U.S.Materials and Methods.In this two‐part study, patients received a single dose of nivolumab (1, 3, and 10 mg/kg; ONO‐4538‐13) and were followed up for 3 weeks. Those who met the required criteria proceeded to the second part (ONO‐4538‐14), and received the same dose as in part one every 2 weeks.Results.Six patients per dose level were enrolled (n = 18). The mean elimination half‐life of nivolumab among the groups ranged from 15.0 to 19.1 days. The maximum serum concentration and area under serum concentration-time curve increased almost ...
One of the things we do is we are part of the WHO specialised agency for cancer and for the last fifty years weve been developing statistics on the global burden of cancer. One of the key pieces that we work with WHO on is to develop the statistics and understand the future cancer burden as well. So we know there is going to be something in the order of thirty million new cancer cases by 2035, currently its about 14.1 million new cases. So the scale of cancer is increasing greatly, partially because of demographic effects, the impact of population aging and growth, but also increasing risk and the changing profile of cancers as well.. Thats important that we know that but we really need also local data and the best way to get better global data as well as local data is to support cancer surveillance, both in terms of incidence and mortality. We are buoyed by the high level impetus that we see for NCDs and cancers and governments now trying to tackle the increasing burden from NCDs and cancer. ...
Folakemi Odedina, Ph.D., a professor of pharmacy and the director of the UF Shands Cancer Centers Cancer Health Disparities Program, served on the planning committee for National Cancer Institute Global Cancer Research Day, which was held in Washington, DC in March in conjuction with the Consortium of Universities for Global Health Annual Meeting.. The meeting aimed to engage a diverse range of participants including both cancer researchers and global health professionals who may not necessarily have specific cancer expertise, but have an interest in exploring the intersection between global health and cancer. The Global Cancer Research Day meeting utilized a highly interactive format to engage the cancer research and global health communities in a rich dialogue about cross-cutting issues. Topics explored included capacity building, cancers related to infectious diseases (including HIV-related malignancies), lessons learned in global health and tapping into the global health communitys ...
Despite deep cuts in federal research spending due to sequestration, Associate Professor Muhammad Zaman (BME, MSE) has secured a five-year grant of more than $3 million from the National Institutes of Health to develop mathematical and computational models of how breast cancer cells move and communicate as they migrate from tumors, invade nearby tissue and proliferate.. By mapping this process from the molecular to the cellular level through detailed, comprehensive multiscale models based on strong experimental and computational data, Zaman and his collaborators-MIT Professors Frank Gertler, Roger Kamm and Douglas Lauffenberger, and a computational modeling team in Singapore-aim to uncover new pathways to control tumor development and metastasis in the breast, lung, and other organs.. Complex biochemical and biomechanical interactions govern how cancer cells spread from tumors and metastasize in nearby tissue. Much is known about the mechanics of how cancer cells migrate, but how biochemical ...
A new computational study shows how cancer cells take advantage of the system by which cells communicate with their neighbors as they pass messages to be like me or be not like me.. Cancer uses a little-understood element of cell signaling to hijack the communication process and spread, according to Rice University researchers.. Led by Rice biophysicists Eshel Ben-Jacob and José Onuchic, the researchers decode how cancer uses a cell-cell interaction mechanism known as notch signaling to promote metastasis. This mechanism plays a crucial role in embryonic development and wound healing and is activated when a delta or jagged ligand of one cell interacts with the notch receptor on an adjacent one.. Their open-access study appears this month in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. It follows a 2014 study in which the researchers mapped the flow of information through genetic circuits involved in cancer metastasis.. At the heart of our new understanding is that the primary ...

Purpose: To determine the maximum tolerated dose, dose-limiting toxicity (DLT), and recommended phase II dose of dasatinib in metastatic solid tumors refractory to standard therapies or for which no effective standard therapy exists.. Experimental Design: In this phase I, open-label, dose-escalation study, patients received 35 to 160 mg of dasatinib twice daily in 28-day cycles either every 12 hours for 5 consecutive days followed by 2 nontreatment days every week (5D2) or as continuous, twice-daily (CDD) dosing.. Results: Sixty-seven patients were treated (5D2, n = 33; CDD, n = 34). The maximum tolerated doses were 120 mg twice daily 5D2 and 70 mg twice daily CDD. DLTs with 160 mg 5D2 were recurrent grade 2 rash, grade 3 lethargy, and one patient with both grade 3 prolonged bleeding time and grade 3 hypocalcemia; DLTs with 120 mg twice daily CDD were grade 3 nausea, grade 3 fatigue, and one patient with both grade 3 rash and grade 2 proteinuria. The most frequent treatment-related toxicities ...
Cancer therapies are designed to kill tumour cells, but produce tumour cell debris in the process.. In a study published in The Journal of Experimental Medicine, researchers from Brigham and Womens Hospital and colleagues show that leftover debris can stimulate inflammation and tumour growth, but that molecules called resolvins can block that unwanted inflammatory response.. The findings point towards a new way to enhance the effectiveness of current cancer therapies and potentially prevent tumour recurrence.. When conventional cancer treatments, such as radiation or chemotherapy drugs, break apart tumours, they can also spread and stimulate the production of proinflammatory cytokines.. These signalling molecules, known to promote tumour growth, were at the centre of the investigation.. Dead and dying tumour cells are an under-appreciated component of the tumour microenvironment that may promote tumour progression, said Professor Charles Serhan, PhD, DSc, Department of Anesthesiology, ...
I assess the impact that pharmaceutical innovation had on cancer mortality in Mexico during the period 2003-2013, by investigating whether there were larger declines in the age-standardized mortality rate of cancer sites (breast, lung, colon, etc.) that were subject to more pharmaceutical innovation, controlling for changes in the age-standardized cancer incidence rate. The estimates indicate that new drugs launched during 1991-2001 reduced the age-standardized cancer mortality rate by 16%, i.e., at an average annual rate of about 1.6%. I estimate that 105,661 life-years before age 70 were gained in 2013 due to cancer drugs launched during 1991-2001, and that the cost per life-year gained was in the neighborhood of $2146. By the standards of the World Health Organization, new cancer drugs have been very cost-effective in Mexico. The contribution of cancer drug innovation to Mexican longevity growth has been valuable, but, perhaps, it could have been even larger. Only half as many new cancer drugs were

Weve shown that an aged immune system can combat cancer just as well as a young one if you remove the impediments to successful immunity, which are different that those in younger hosts, Dr. Curiel said. Weve shown that if you test all your immune therapy just in young mice and young people, youll never learn how it works in older patients - the ones most at risk for cancer. You might conclude that drugs dont work in aged hosts, when they do. But they have to be combined with some help.. After discovering this in melanoma, the researchers then looked at whether the same action held true in colon cancer, a major cancer killer in the elderly.. The details were different in colon cancer. The bad immune cells that increased in the aged mice and how they were knocked down by the drugs were different than in melanoma, Dr. Curiel said. But the result was the same - we identified a drug combination that was highly effective in the aged mice.. That means that not only must this strategy be ...

This said, however, it is clear that work remains to be done in improving late effects. This may mean modifying current cancer treatments to reduce their neurotoxicity, or introducing new therapies and interventions for survivors. For those interested in developing new intervention strategies, the CCSS data is likely to prove an excellent starting point.. Findings from this study indicate that current therapies, with the continued goal of 100% cure, may still result in poor perceived health outcomes, and more work is needed to address these toxicities in treatment, says Ness. For those who develop adverse outcomes, rehabilitation strategies that work in other populations with pain and mobility limitations may be effective and need to be tested.. Already, several randomised intervention studies have been completed off the back of CCSS-based research. Having recruited a cohort of high-risk childhood cancer survivors, these studies looked into the benefits of breast cancer screening, ...

Researchers have worked out how a new class of anticancer drugs can kill cancer cells. The findings also revealed more about how cancer cells resist treatment.
The researchers note that there will be about 89,500 new cancer cases and 9,270 cancer deaths in AYAs in 2020. During the most recent decade (2007 to 2016), overall cancer incidence increased in all AYA age groups, mainly driven by thyroid cancer. In most age groups, incidence also increased for several cancers linked to obesity, including kidney, uterine corpus, and colorectum. In those aged 15 to 29 years, rates declined dramatically for melanoma (4 to 6 percent annually). During 2008 through 2017, overall cancer mortality decreased by 1 percent annually across age and sex groups, apart from women aged 30 to 39 years who had stable rates. Across age groups, five-year relative survival in AYAs was similar for all cancers combined (range, 83 to 86 percent) but varied widely for some cancers.. Source: Read Full Article ...
The relationship between diet and exercise and its positive effects on treatment outcomes in obese cancer patients has sparked interest for quite some time, but for paediatric patients, the research has been limited.. While healthy eating is encouraged during and after treatment, special diet interventions as part of treatment for paediatric patients are uncommon.. Additionally, when it comes to physical activity, clinicians are cautious about administering an exercise regimen in a cancer care setting.. The purpose of the review was to delineate between obesity reduction as a goal for energy balance interventions versus simply changing diet or adding exercise, said Joya Chandra, Ph.D., associate professor of Paediatric Research and lead author on the study.. For example, our review confirmed modifying diet or adding moderate exercise can improve chemotherapy efficacy independent of weight loss.. Obesity, an epidemic and risk factor for several cancers, is on the rise in paediatric cancer ...

Translational Cancer Research publishes the results of novel research investigations including risk assessment, cellular and prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment of human cancers.
PURPOSE The adolescent and young adult (AYA) population is a growing group of survivors, exceeding more than 600,000, at high risk for late effects of cancer-directed therapy. While many guidelines exist for cancer survivorship care, choosing which to use for an AYA cancer survivor is challenging, yet vital, to ensure comprehensive follow-up care. METHODS Survivorship care plans (SCPs), including treatment summaries (TS) and follow-up care plans, were created for three clinical vignettes (acute lymphoblastic leukemia, osteosarcoma, and Hodgkin lymphoma). Four sets of guidelines were used, including the Childrens Oncology Group Long-Term Follow-Up Guidelines (COG LTFU), National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Guidelines for Age- Related Recommendations: AYA Oncology (NCCN-AYA), NCCN Guidelines for Treatment of Cancer by Site (NCCN-Site), and NCCN Guidelines for Supportive Care: Survivorship (NCCN-Survivorship) and NCCN supplemental cancer screening guidelines. The follow-up care plans were
Young female cancer patients are unhappy about the way fertility preservation options are discussed with them by doctors before starting cancer treatment, according to a new study by researchers from the University of Sheffield and The Childrens Hospital, Sheffield.. The pioneering study discovered that only 40 per cent of young female cancer patients were happy with the way their doctors discussed the options they had to preserve fertility, before undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy which can have a harmful effect on a patients fertility.. Researchers conducted the ground breaking study by asking 290 young cancer patients attending support group conferences organised by the Teenager Cancer Trust in 2004 and 2011.. Their views were collected anonymously using Who wants to be a millionaire? style handsets to answer questions projected onto a big screen.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Estimating lead-time bias in lung cancer diagnosis of patients with previous cancers. AU - Ge, Zhiyun. AU - Heitjan, Daniel F.. AU - Gerber, David E.. AU - Xuan, Lei. AU - Pruitt, Sandi L.. PY - 2018/1/1. Y1 - 2018/1/1. N2 - Surprisingly, survival from a diagnosis of lung cancer has been found to be longer for those who experienced a previous cancer than for those with no previous cancer. A possible explanation is lead-time bias, which, by advancing the time of diagnosis, apparently extends survival among those with a previous cancer even when they enjoy no real clinical advantage. We propose a discrete parametric model to jointly describe survival in a no-previous-cancer group (where, by definition, lead-time bias cannot exist) and in a previous-cancer group (where lead-time bias is possible). We model the lead time with a negative binomial distribution and the post-lead-time survival with a linear spline on the logit hazard scale, which allows for survival to differ between ...

Survivors of the 10 most common cancers diagnosed in adolescents and young adults (AYAs) are at considerably higher risk for diseases.
The older age is characterized by the increase of frailty, physical comorbidities, functional limitations, cognitive deficits, and inability to perform activities of daily living [7-9]. In elderly cancer patients, there is a significant correlation between somatic diseases, functional limitations and psychological distress [9-11]. Anxiety and depression are considered the most common forms of psychological distress in elderly cancer patients with the highest prevalence in patients older than 80 years [7, 10, 11]. Furthermore, desease- and treatment-related symptoms and the awareness of living with an incurable malignancy can profoundly impact health-related quality of life [12].. In contrast to the amount of research available for patients with solid tumors, there is still a paucity of studies regarding health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in patients with hematologic malignancies [13-16]. For elderly hematologic cancer patients, the number of studies is even sparser. Although about every ...
Cancer-related fatigue is a subjective symptom of fatigue that is experienced by nearly all cancer patients. Among patients receiving cancer treatment other than surgery, it is essentially universal. Fatigue is a normal and expected side effect of most forms of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and biotherapy. On average, cancer-related fatigue is more severe, more distressing, and less likely to be relieved by rest than fatigue experienced by healthy people. It can range from mild to severe, and may be either temporary or a long-term effect. Fatigue may be a symptom of the cancer, or it may be the result of treatments for the cancer. The National Comprehensive Cancer Network defines cancer-related fatigue as a distressing persistent, subjective sense of physical, emotional and/or cognitive tiredness or exhaustion related to cancer or cancer treatment that is not proportional to recent activity and interferes with usual functioning. Cancer-related fatigue is a chronic fatigue (persistent ...
Children born to survivors of childhood cancer do not appear to have an increased risk of birth defects. These results were published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.. Cancer treatment can have a range of reproductive effects. Treatment may result in a loss or reduction of fertility in men and women, and treatments that damage the uterus-such as radiation to the pelvis-may increase a womans risk of miscarriage or pre-term delivery. Studies of birth defects among children conceived after a parents cancer treatment have generally been reassuring, but not all of the studies considered the type and dose of treatment received by the parent.. To explore further the risk of birth defects among children born to cancer survivors, researchers evaluated information from the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS). The childhood cancer survivors had been diagnosed with cancer before the age of 21. Information was available about almost 4,700 children born to these survivors. The children had been born ...

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 ...

Results from pilot studies indicate that palliative cancer patients report increased well-being and less fatigue after physical activity. This study aimed to explore how palliative cancer patients experienced physical activity. A qualitative design with semi-structured interviews was used. Eleven palliative cancer patients over 18 years old with different diagnoses and Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Scale performance status levels of between 1 and 3 were interviewed. Four main themes emerged: routines of everyday life, less fatigue, professional guidance, and hope. The first theme comprised two categories: something to do, and being together with others in a similar situation. The theme professional guidance also comprised two categories: the physiotherapist as tutor, and the physiotherapist as motivator. Some cancer patients in palliative care who participated in physical activity experienced less fatigue and enhanced energy. Physical activity helps to bring structure to everyday life and ...

Whether past history of solid stage I/II inactive cancer has an impact on 28-day mortality of sepsis remains unclear. We aimed to determine the impact of history of stage I or II solid tumor malignancy in complete remission the last 3 years on sepsis outcome. Using the database of the Hellenic Sepsis Study Group from 1553 patients with sepsis admitted in the ICU, 83 patients with sepsis by Sepsis-3 definition with past-history of stage I/II inactive solid malignancy the last 3 years were depicted. A comparator group of 83 patients fully matched for age, severity, type of infection and comorbidities was selected by propensity score matching. Mortality after 28 days was 37.3% in the comparator group and 54.2% in the solid tumor stage I/II group (odds ratio for death 1.98; p: 0.030). Following step-wise forward Cox regression analysis, septic shock (hazard ratio 1.80), acute renal injury (hazard ratio 2.06), history of coronary heart disease (hazard ratio 0.36) and history of stage I/II solid tumor

The Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer finds that from 2001 to 2017, deaths from cancer (all sites combined) continued to decline. The report was released on March 12 and is published in the journal, Cancer.. The annual report, which represents the collaborative efforts of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the American Cancer Society (ACS), and the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries NAACCR), found decreases in the overall cancer death rates in all major racial and ethnic groups and among men, women, adolescents, young adults, and children. From 2012 to 2016 incidence of new cancers (for all cancers combined) held steady for men and increased slightly for women.. Over a four-year period (2013 to 2017), the report found:. Cancer death rates for men declined in 11 of the 19 most prevalent cancers, remained stable in four cancers (including prostate), and increased in four cancers (oral cavity and pharynx; soft tissue ...
Historically 15- to 39-year-olds have been treated like an overlooked middle child whose parents are too busy lavishing cancer prevention and therapeutic attention on the youngest and oldest, but the Keck School of Medicine of USC is looking to change that dynamic with a first-of-its-kind report card. Published this year, Cancer in Los Angeles County: Trends Among Adolescents and Young Adults 1988-2011 is a large-scale, comprehensive evaluation of the cancer trends of 15- to 39-year- olds, said Dennis Deapen, lead author of the report and director of the Los Angeles Cancer Surveillance Program. There has been tremendous improvement in survival of pediatric cancer patients over the last three decades, Deapen said. Thirty years ago, 80 percent of pediatric cancer patients died of their disease. Now over 80 percent are cured. Yet in what we define as the AYA population, between the ages 15 and 39, there has been no overall improvement in their survival. Cancer is the leading cause of non-accidental

Developing cancer therapies that have minimal side-effects depends upon finding and killing only the cancer cells, leaving the healthy cells alone. To selectively kill cancer cells, a cross-institution team of researchers has developed a technique that targets cancer cells abnormal DNA repair machinery. One member of that team is Alan Tomkinson, PhD, University of New Mexico Professor of Internal Medicine and Associate Director of Basic Research at the UNM Cancer Center. Dr. Tomkinson is an expert in DNA ligases, one of the proteins a cell uses to repair its DNA. He and the team recently published a pair of papers describing their work with chronic myeloid leukemia cells and with breast cancer cells.. In one of the papers, the scientists chose to work with chronic myeloid leukemia cells because, as Dr. Tomkinson explains, Chronic myeloid leukemia is driven by an oncogene called BCR-ABL. We wanted a form of cancer where we knew what the initiating event was. For people with BCR-ABL-driven ...
Head and neck cancer is the sixth most common type of cancer and is on the rise in some demographic groups, including young women without any known risk factors. Now, researchers at Fox Chase Cancer Center report that estrogen may increase the movement of precancerous cells in the mouth and thus promote the spread of the disease within the oral cavity.. The new results, published in the January issue of Cancer Prevention Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, may lead to novel chemoprevention strategies in the future.. Margie Clapper, Ph.D., co-leader of the Cancer Prevention and Control Program at Fox Chase Cancer Center and Cancer Prevention Research editorial board member, and colleagues had previously reported that estrogen metabolism changes following smoke exposure in the lungs and may contribute to lung cancer.

Nearly, one-fifth of childhood cancer survivors (CCSs) smoke cigars. provision of eight weeks of NRT. The participant initiated treatment enables the participant to contact the QL at their comfort, but contains the same six phone classes and provision of 14 days of NRT. Both groups will receive two follow-up phone calls at 8 weeks and 1 year after enrollment to assess their smoking status. The primary outcome measure is cotinine-validated self-reported smoking abstinence at 1-year follow-up. Results from this study will provide the first evidence about the efficacy of intensive QL cessation intervention in this high risk population. Such evidence can lead as well to the dissemination of this intervention to other medically compromised Crassicauline A IC50 populations. INTRODUCTION There are approximately 270,000 adult survivors of childhood cancer in the US [1]. In 2000, the National Cancer Institute estimated that there were approximately 10 million cancer survivors (adult and child survivors) ...
For example, it turns out that Tide Free & Gentle® isnt so gentle. A report recently released by Womens Voices for Earth, Dirty Secrets: Whats Hiding in Your Cleaning Products? found high levels of the cancer-causing chemical 1,4-dioxane in the detergent. 1,4-dioxane doesnt appear on the product label or on the product website, so consumers have no way of knowing its even there.. This is especially concerning, because Tide Free & Gentle® is marketed to moms as a healthier choice for their childrens laundry. Infants and children are more vulnerable to chemical exposures, because their immune, neurological, and hormone systems are still developing.. 1,4-dioxane is a known cancer-causing chemical, and has been linked in animal studies to increased risk of breast cancer.. Procter & Gamble (makers of Tide®) already have experience stripping 1,4 dioxane out of its products; in 2010, the company reformulated its Herbal Essences® shampoo to eliminate 1,4-dioxane. Unfortunately, Dirty Secrets ...
The number of long-term cancer survivors in the general population of the UK is substantial and increasing rapidly. Many cancer survivors have been treated with radiotherapy but the likely number of radiotherapy-related second cancers has not previously been estimated. We used estimates of the numbers of cancer survivors in the UK at the beginning of 2007, in conjunction with estimates of the relative risk of a second primary cancer associated with previous radiotherapy from the United States Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) programme, to estimate the numbers of incident cancers in the UK in 2007 that were associated with radiotherapy for a previous cancer and that may have been caused by it. We estimated that 1,346 cases of cancer, or about 0.45% of the 298,000 new cancers registered in the UK in 2007, were associated with radiotherapy for a previous cancer. The largest numbers of radiotherapy-related second cancers were lung cancer (23.7% of the total), oesophageal cancer (13.3%), and
However, the bright side of this scenario is a major project the National Cancer Institute has organized, which will involve extensive research of the low cancer survival rates among black women in America. At the beginning of this month, the National Cancer Institute was awarded a $12 million-dollar grant.. The money will be used to conduct a vast research study that will focus on finding out more about the low cancer survival rate in black women. A higher level of awareness is the first step toward eventually increasing the cancer survival rate among black women in America.. This is a much-need breakthrough, said Dr. Peterson.

BACKGROUND: Owing to the increasing prevalence of obesity and diabetes in Asia, and the paucity of studies, we examined the influence of raised blood glucose and diabetes on cancer mortality risk. Materials and methods: Thirty-six cohort Asian and Australasian studies provided 367, 361 participants (74% from Asia); 6% had diabetes at baseline. Associations between diabetes and site-specific cancer mortality were estimated using time-dependent Cox models, stratified by study and sex, and adjusted for age. RESULTS: During a median follow-up of 4.0 years, there were 5992 deaths due to cancer (74% Asian; 41% female). Participants with diabetes had 23% greater risk of mortality from all-cause cancer compared with those without: hazard ratio (HR) 1.23 [95% confidence interval (CI) 1.12, 1.35]. Diabetes was associated with mortality due to cancer of the liver (HR 1.51; 95% CI 1.19, 1.91), pancreas (HR 1.78; 95% CI 1.20, 2.65), and, less strongly, colorectum (HR 1.32; 95% CI 0.98, 1.78). There was no evidence
