This population-based study uses data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database to analyze the typical clinical characteristics of mammary analog secretory carcinoma.
This population-level analysis of medical records from the Nationwide Readmissions Database evaluates risk factors, causes, and costs of hospital readmission after head and neck cancer surgery reconstruction.
This pooled analysis of individual patient data investigates the association of body mass index with subsequent breast cancer risk, in particular by age, attained age, risk factors for breast cancer, and tumor characteristics, in premenopausal women.
This post hoc analysis of the Vitamin D Assessment randomized clinical trial assesses the association of monthly high-dose vitamin D supplementation vs placebo on cancer risk among New Zealand adults.
This cost-effectiveness study uses a life-table model of a hypothetical cohort of 364 500 women to evaluate the cost-effectiveness and benefit to harm ratio of risk-stratified screening for breast cancer.
This systematic analysis evaluates the cancer burden over time at the global and national levels measured in incidence, mortality, years lived with disability, years of life lost, and disability-adjusted life-years.
This population-based study uses data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER)–Medicare linked database to identify and compare the survival rates and costs attributed to muscle-invasive bladder cancer in older US adults.
