Background: Given that media coverage can shape healthcare expectations, it is essential that we understand how the media frames “personalized medicine” (PM) in oncology, and whether information about unproven technologies is widely disseminated. Methods: We conducted a content analysis of 396 news reports related to cancer and PM published between 1 January 1998 and 31 December 2011. Two coders independently coded all the reports using a pre-defined framework. Determination of coverage of “stan...

Introduction: Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the US. While smoking remains the most common cause for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), less research exists on the role of adverse social conditions and neighborhood socioeconomic status (nSES) in the development of specific NSCLC somatic mutations. Neighborhood conditions can be influenced by economic, housing, education, transportation, and environmental factors. Understanding the relationship between NSCLC biology...

BACKGROUND Poor patients often reside in neighborhoods of lower socioeconomic status (SES) with high levels of airborne pollutants. They also have higher mortality from non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) than those living in wealthier communities. We investigated whether living in polluted neighborhoods is associated with somatic mutations linked with lower survival rates, i.e TP53 mutations. METHODS In a retrospective cohort of 478 NSCLC patients treated at a comprehensive cancer center between...

Nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the leading cause of cancer deaths. Lung cancer screening (LCS) reduces NSCLC mortality; however, a lack of diversity in LCS studies may limit the generalizability of the results to marginalized groups who face higher risk for and worse outcomes from NSCLC. Identifying sources of inequity in the LCS pipeline is essential to reduce disparities in NSCLC outcomes. The authors searched 3 major databases for studies published from January 1, 2010 to February 27, 2...
