Summary of "State of Cancer Research Around the Globe."

Cancer, the second leading cause of death globally, remains a significant challenge for societies, healthcare systems, and affected individuals worldwide. Adding to this challenge are complex disparities in access to and use of cancer care, basic and clinical research, and clinical trials, as well as disparities in cultural beliefs and genetics. To improve cancer treatment, it is essential that cancer investigators, cooperative groups, national research institutions, national governments, competent authorities, ethics committees, and pharmaceutical companies come together to strengthen global collaboration in cancer research. Once we reach this goal, the resulting data will be more broadly applicable to all patients. This article reviews the current state of cancer research around the world.

Inflammation of the optic nerve. Commonly associated conditions include autoimmune disorders such as MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, infections, and granulomatous diseases. Clinical features include retro-orbital pain that is aggravated by eye movement, loss of color vision, and contrast sensitivity that may progress to severe visual loss, an afferent pupillary defect (Marcus-Gunn pupil), and in some instances optic disc hyperemia and swelling. Inflammation may occur in the portion of the nerve within the globe (neuropapillitis or anterior optic neuritis) or the portion behind the globe (retrobulbar neuritis or posterior optic neuritis).
