Use of cervical cancer preventive services among US women aged 21-29: an assessment of the 2010 Affordable Care Act rollout through 2018.

Cancer Causes Control 2020 Jun 29. Epub 2020 Jun 29.

Arizona Cancer Center, University of Arizona, 1515 N Campbell Ave, Tucson, AZ, 85719, USA.

Purpose: The 2010 Affordable Care Act (ACA) provided millions of people with health insurance coverage and facilitated routine cancer screening by requiring insurers to cover preventive services without cost-sharing. Despite greater access to affordable cancer screening, Pap testing has declined over time. The aim of this study is to assess participation in Pap test and HPV vaccination, and adherence to guidelines as outlined by the American Cancer Society (ACS) from the 2010 ACA provision eliminating cost-sharing for preventive services.

Examining breast cancer disparities in African Americans with suggestions for policy.

Cancer Causes Control 2020 Jun 10. Epub 2020 Jun 10.

Meharry Medical College, Nashville, USA.

Breast cancer is a commonly diagnosed malignancy and the second leading cause of cancer-related death among American women today. The literature suggests that African American Women (AAW) are more likely to die from the disease each year compared to their White counterparts. A biological basis for this disparity exists-early age of onset, more advanced stage of the disease, more aggressive histological changes, and worse survival. Read More

Recommendations for cancer screening would be different if we measured endpoints that are valid, reliable, specific, and important to patients.

Cancer Causes Control 2020 Aug 15;31(8):705-711. Epub 2020 May 15.

Clinical Excellence Research Center, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, 94305-6015, USA.

Background: Despite enthusiasm for cancer screening, systematic reviews consistently fail to show that screening reduces all-cause mortality. This narrative review explores conceptual issues, and inconsistencies between evidence and opinion about screening.

Review: We examined the interpretation of screening studies in relation to three intellectual traditions: (1) The relationship between prevention and cure; (2) Confirmation bias and the challenge of incorporating new data: less care may produce better outcomes than more care; (3) The answers to three structured questions about efficacy, effectiveness, and value of treatments proposed by Sir Archie Cochrane and Sir Austin Bradford Hill.

Cancer-work management during active treatment: towards a conceptual framework.

Cancer Causes Control 2020 May 3;31(5):463-472. Epub 2020 Mar 3.

Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA.

Purpose: Forward progress in cancer treatment has resulted in fewer adverse consequences of cancer during and after treatment, offering employed cancer patients the possibility of continuing to work during treatment, returning to work after treatment, or implementing a combination of strategies to manage the cancer-work interface. Yet, much of the research on cancer and employment examines return to work as the primary outcome, neglecting to consider the circumstances of survivors who maintain employment while engaged in active treatment. We introduce the Cancer-Work Management Framework (CWMF), a conceptual framework for understanding the cancer and job demands survivors who continue to work during active treatment experience and how cancer and job resources and strategies could promote cancer-work fit and ultimately optimize employment and health outcomes.

Risk of abnormal cervical cytology in HIV-infected women testing positive for both human papillomavirus and Epstein-Barr virus in genital tract specimens.

Cancer Causes Control 2020 Apr 28;31(4):365-375. Epub 2020 Feb 28.

Department of Medicine, School of Medicine, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, New Orleans, LA, USA.

Purpose: Although infection with high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) is a prerequisite for cervical cancer development, HPV infection is not sufficient to promote cancer in the majority of infected women. We tested the hypothesis that human herpesviruses might cooperate with HPV to promote the development of cervical dysplasia, an early indicator of cervical cancer development.

Methods: This study used archived specimens from a cohort of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-seropositive women seeking gynecological care at the Medical Center of New Orleans, Louisiana. Read More
