Article
Background Corticosteroids (CS) are often prescribed for patients (pts) with cancer to alleviate disease symptoms, manage treatment-related adverse events, or treat underlying comorbidities. Immunosuppressive properties of CS may impact the effectiveness of cancer immunotherapy (CIT) if given concomitantly. This study explored the association of ba...

Objectives: To assess the value to society of improved survival from novel immuno-oncology (I-O) treatments. Study design: Case studies of ipilimumab for the treatment of advanced unresectable melanoma and nivolumab for advanced previously treated squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Methods: Published data and survival analysis were u...

Objectives Little is known about the severity and long-term health and economic consequences of sarcopenia. We developed a sarcopenia index to measure severity in older Americans and estimated the long-term societal benefits generated by effective interventions to mitigate severity. DesignUsing a micro-simulation model, we quantified the potential...

Studies examining geographic variation in care for low back pain often focus on process and outcome measures conditional on patient diagnosis but generally do not take into account a physician’s ability to diagnose the root cause of low back pain. In our case study, we used increased detection of ankylosing spondylitis—a relatively rare inflammator...
Article
27Background: Although new oncology treatments have the potential to improve patient health, these innovations take time to reach to real-world patients. In this study, we estimated how delays in the uptake of novel oncology treatments affect real-world patient survival. Methods: This retrospective cohort study used 1991-2013 data from a cancer-reg...
Article
Background: There is considerable push to improve value in health care by simultaneously increasing quality while lowering or containing costs. However, for diseases that are best treated with comparatively expensive treatments, such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), there could be tension between these aims. In this study, we measured geographic vari...
Article
Objectives: To illustrate a more comprehensive view of value associated with medicines treating a highly severe illness and to apply these insights to estimate the costs and benefits of 3 treatments for multiple sclerosis (MS): Avonex, Tysabri, and Tecfidera. Study Design: Retrospective study spanning 2002 to 2013. We used economic theory to deriv...
Article
Drawing on multiple theoretical perspectives (e.g., social comparison theory, reward theory, evolutionary theory), the present research examined the relations of self and friendship network weight status to body satisfaction, self-esteem, and depression. A diverse, population-based sample of adolescents completed measures of well-being and were mea...
Article
Aims: (1) To illustrate a more comprehensive view of value associated with medicines treating highly severe illness. (2) To apply these insights to estimate the costs and benefits of three treatments for Multiple Sclerosis (MS): Avonex, Tysabri, and Tecfidera. Materials and Methods: Retrospective study spanning 2002-2013. We use economic theory to...
Article
Since 2004, concerns about the safety of erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) have resulted in label changes and restrictions on their use. We examined changes in ESA use and blood transfusions over time. The SEER-Medicare database was used to identify patients age ≥ 65 years with breast, lung, prostate, ovary, or colon cancer, diagnosed betwee...
Article
A recent randomized trial demonstrated that for metastatic epidural spinal cord compression (MESCC), a complication of advanced prostate cancer, surgical decompression may be more effective than external beam radiation therapy (RT). We investigated predictors of MESCC, its treatment, and its impact on hospital length of stay for patients with advan...
Article
Dieting, unhealthy weight control and muscle-enhancing behaviors are common among adolescents: friends are a probable source of influence on these behaviors. The present study uses data provided by nominated friends to examine associations between friends' disordered eating and muscle-enhancing behaviors and participants' own behaviors in a diverse...
Article
Experiments were executed to provide new evidence relevant to the recent suggestion that fatigue should augment or retard cardiovascular response depending on the difficulty of the challenge at hand. Participants walked on a treadmill while wearing a vest fitted with 5 or 25 pounds of weight. Later, they mounted a recumbent stationary bicycle and w...
