Exploring the association between melanoma and glioma risks.
(Ann Epidemiol, 2014-06)
PURPOSE: Gliomas are one of the most fatal malignancies, with largely unknown etiology. This study examines a possible connection between glioma and melanoma, which might provide insight into gliomas' etiology. METHODS: ...
Preoperative CYP2D6 metabolism-dependent β-blocker use and mortality after coronary artery bypass grafting surgery.
(J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg, 2014-04)
OBJECTIVE: Recently, the role of β-blockers (BBs) in reducing perioperative mortality has been challenged. The conflicting results might have resulted from the extent of BB metabolism by the cytochrome P-450 (CYP2D6) isoenzyme. ...
Trends and outcomes in the use of surgery and radiation for the treatment of locally advanced esophageal cancer: A propensity score adjusted analysis of the surveillance, epidemiology, and end results registry from 1998 to 2008
(Diseases of the Esophagus, 2014-01-01)
We examined outcomes and trends in surgery and radiation use for patients with locally advanced esophageal cancer, for whom optimal treatment isn't clear. Trends in surgery and radiation for patients with T1-T3N1M0 squamous ...
The effect of non-fluoride factors on risk of dental fluorosis: Evidence from rural populations of the Main Ethiopian Rift
(Science of the Total Environment, 2014-08-01)
Elevated level of fluoride (F-) in drinking water is a well-recognized risk factor of dental fluorosis (DF). While considering optimization of region-specific standards for F-, it is reasonable, however, to consider how ...
Long-term dynamics of death rates of emphysema, asthma, and pneumonia and improving air quality.
(Int J Chron Obstruct Pulmon Dis, 2014)
BACKGROUND: The respiratory tract is a major target of exposure to air pollutants, and respiratory diseases are associated with both short- and long-term exposures. We hypothesized that improved air quality in North Carolina ...
