    Modeling, an experimental approach to investigate complex biological systems, has significantly contributed to our understanding of cancer. Although extensive cancer research has been conducted utilizing animal models for elucidating mechanisms and developing therapeutics, the concepts in a good model design and its application have not been well elaborated.   Ahmedin Jemal is vice president of the Surveillance & Health Services Research Program at the American Cancer Society. He also holds an appointment as adjunct associate professor of epidemiology at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory s: 3.

The use of chemotherapy to treat cancer began at the start of the 20th century with attempts to narrow the universe of chemicals that might affect the disease by developing methods to screen chemicals using transplantable tumors in rodents. It was, however, four World War II–related programs, and the effects of drugs that evolved from them, that provided the impetus to establish in the.

Core tip: The International Agency for Research on Cancer has worked for around 45 years evaluating the scientific literature, concerning the potential of around different agents to cause cancer. Those agents which were determined to definitively cause cancer in humans are reviewed from a historical perspective.

Susan Devesa. In the United States, cancers that affect fewer t new patients per year are considered rare.

Taken alone, each type occurs relatively infrequently, but collectively, rare tumors are not rare at all. In fact, nearly one-third of patients diagnosed with cancer have a rare tumor type. The systematic study of rare tumors will lead to much needed ways to treat patients’ tumors and will.

Atlases By using “Big Data” we can address clinical problems. Analyzing the massive amount of clinical information that is available in digital format will make it possible to create a rapid learning health care system in which we develop, validate and update predictive tools.

The purpose of the National Cancer Institute pilot project to prioritize cancer antigens was to develop a well-vetted, priority-ranked list of cancer vaccine target antigens based on predefined and preweighted objective criteria.

An additional aim was for the National Cancer Institute to test a new approach for prioritizing translational research opportunities based on an analytic hierarchy.

The National Cancer Data Base (NCDB) is a nationwide oncology outcomes database that currently collects information on approximately 70% of all new invasive cancer diagnoses in the United States each year and serves as a powerful clinical surveillance and quality improvement mechanism for cancer programs participating in the American College of Surgeons (ACoS) Commission on Cancer .Cancer mortality data, predominantly collected through vital registration systems, are also important for planning and monitoring cancer control programs as well as for research.

As with cancer registry data, the availability and quality of death certificate information varies widely, with many low- and middle-income countries having either.The Hindi version of The Cancer Atlas, Second Edition was launched October 8, The Hindi translation was made possible with support from UICC and the Tata Memorial Cancer Research Centre.
