NH study: Cancer victories masked by other successes
When you jointly measure cancer against other diseases, you can conclude there has been sustained progress for decades, said Samir Soneji, PhD, assistant professor for Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth and Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, a member of Norris Cotton Cancer Center.
Principal investigator Soneji and his colleagues — Hiram Beltrán-Sánchez, PhD, and Harold C. Sox, MD — started the study in 2011, 40 years after President Richard Nixon signed into law the National Cancer Act that established the National Cancer Institute.
But the measurements for the nation’s progress against cancer didn’t take into account other diseases, Soneji said.
