This article was published in the following journal.

To present the most recent national estimates of lung cancer burden globally in 185 countries and tobacco smoking prevalence (%) by sex.
Environmental and occupational agents are causes of cancer and disease worldwide while their control and the reduction of the associated disease burden remains complex.
Lung cancer is a major global public health problem, yet the disease is highly stigmatized, which impairs the opportunities to get optimal treatment for these patients. Globally, as well as locally in...
To analyze the coverage of lung cancer in Mexico and offer recommendations in this regard.
Forecast of disease burden in lung cancer is an important health agenda. One of the main challenges is to predict the evolution of trends in disability-adjusted life year (DALY) of lung cancer so as t...
Potential participants in the Lung Cancer Case Registry will be all patients diagnosed or evaluated for possible treatment of lung cancer at the Cancer Research and Treatment Center (CRTC)...
the purpose of this study is to investigate over time patients' symptom burden, caregiving burden, and patients and caregivers' need for information on patient symptom self-management at h...
This is a research study where researchers are collecting blood to evaluate the genetic characteristics of individuals with chronic lung diseases, including asthma, COPD (chronic obstructi...
This is a study of the lung health of the population of Vancouver and the extent of, and the risk factors for, chronic obstructive lung disease.
People reach End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) due to progressive chronic kidney disease (CKD). CKD is associated with increased risk for heart disease and death. The burden of chronic kidney...
Measure of the burden of disease using the disability-adjusted-life-year (DALY). This time-based measure combines years of life lost due to premature mortality and years of life lost due to time lived in states of less than full health. The metric was developed to assess the burden of disease consistently across diseases, risk factors and regions.
A progressive form of dementia characterized by the global loss of language abilities and initial preservation of other cognitive functions. Fluent and nonfluent subtypes have been described. Eventually a pattern of global cognitive dysfunction, similar to ALZHEIMER DISEASE, emerges. Pathologically, there are no Alzheimer or PICK DISEASE like changes, however, spongiform changes of cortical layers II and III are present in the TEMPORAL LOBE and FRONTAL LOBE.

Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.
A diffuse parenchymal lung disease caused by accumulation of inhaled CARBON or coal dust. The disease can progress from asymptomatic anthracosis to massive lung fibrosis. This lung lesion usually occurs in coal miners, but can be seen in urban dwellers and tobacco smokers.
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
Lung cancer is the uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. Originating in the lungs, this growth may invade adjacent tissues and infiltrate beyond the lungs. Lung cancer, the most common cause of cancer-related death in men and women, is respons...
