Cancer risk in the residents of a town near three industrial waste incinerators in Korea: a retrospective cohort study.

Int Arch Occup Environ Health 2022 May 19. Epub 2022 May 19.

Department of Preventive Medicine, College of Medicine, Chungbuk National University, Cheongju, 28644, Republic of Korea.

Background: Three industrial waste incinerators (IWIs) were built in 1999, 2001, and 2010, within a 3 km radius of a town with a population of around 5000 in Korea. This study evaluated whether residents near these three IWIs had increased cancer incidence than those from other areas in Korea using regional health data.

Methods: Standardized incidence ratios (SIR) were calculated using the frequency of cancer cases in the National Cancer Registry of the exposed area (Buki-myeon), Chungcheongbuk-do (Chungbuk, state including Buki-myeon), and whole Korea from 1999 to 2017. Read More

Is the tumor-stroma ratio a prognostic factor in gallbladder cancer?

Rev Assoc Med Bras (1992) 2022 May;68(5):664-669

University of Health Sciences Turkey, Haydarpasa Numune Training and Research Hospital, Department of General Surgery - Istanbul, Turkey.

Objective: This study aimed to examine the prognostic effect of the tumor-stroma ratio, which has been shown to have prognostic value in various cancers, in patients with gallbladder cancer who have undergone curative resection.

Methods: The records of gallbladder cancer patients who underwent surgical treatment in our clinic between December 2005 and March 2021 were analyzed retrospectively. The hematoxylin and eosin-stained sections representing the tumors were evaluated under light microscopy to determine tumor-stroma ratio, and based on the results, <50% was defined as the stroma-rich and ≥50% as the stroma-poor groups.
