Indoor Wood-Burning Stove and Fireplace Use and Breast Cancer in a Prospective Cohort Study

Conclusions: In this prospective study, using an indoor wood-burning stove/fireplace in the longest adult residence at least once a week and burning either wood or natural gas/propane was associated with a modestly higher risk of breast cancer. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP827 Received: 18 July 2016 Revised: 16 November 2016 Accepted: 09 December 2016 Published: 18 July 2017 Address correspondence to A.J.

This study aimed to develop a method for eliciting and coding recall of medical information in non‐English‐speaking patients. DesignThis method, called Patient‐Interpreter‐Clinician coding (PICcode), was developed in the context of a phase II trial conducted in two outpatient oncology clinics in Melbourne, Australia, and was refined iteratively through consultation with an expert panel and piloting. Between‐coder differences in early versions of the coding system were resolved through discussion and consensus resulting in refinements to PICcode. ResultsThe final version of PICcode involved transcribing, translati...

In this study, we performed recursive partitioning analysis (RPA) to objectively combine the 15-ELN threshold and 8th AJCC stage to refine the staging for GC.MethodsWe analyzed 19,018 patients with non-metastatic GC from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database. The dataset was randomly divided into training and validation sets.ResultsFor each 8th AJCC stage, survival was significantly better for patients with ≥15 ELNs versus those with

Conclusions: Application of metastatic prognostic scoring systems to a retrospective surgical cohort revealed an overall poor correlation with the Tomita and revised Tokuhashi predictive survival models. Morbidity and mortality rates concur with those in the medical literature. This study underscores the difficulty in utilizing metastatic spine scoring systems to predict patient survival. We believe a scoring system based on cancer type is needed to account for changes in treatment paradigms with improved patient survival over time.
