Report 13 in RERF study of mortality of A-bomb survivors extends coverage through 1997
The latest in an ongoing series of reports from the Radiation Effects Research Foundation (RERF) on the mortality of A-bomb survivors in Hiroshima and Nagasaki extends the study of solid cancer and noncancer disease mortality by 7 years to include the years 1950-1997. (2003-10-20)

Levels of antibodies in saliva are associated with risk of mortality
New research from the University of Birmingham has found that lower levels of antibodies in saliva are associated with of an elevated risk of mortality, and could be an early indicator of risk. The study, published in PLOS ONE, examined associations between secretory immunoglobulin A, the common antibody found in saliva, and mortality rates in the general population. (2015-12-23)

Engaging in physical activity could reduce long-term mortality
This study has been published in the prestigious journal of Mayo Clinic Proceedings and is part of the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid cohort, a representative cohort of the non-institutionalized population aged 60 years and older in Spain. (2019-03-12)

US lifespans lags other high-income countries, tied to mortality rates under age 50
A University of Pennsylvania study suggests higher mortality rates among Americans younger than 50 are responsible for much of why life expectancy is lower in the United States than most of the world's most developed nations. (2013-03-13)

Maternal mortality rates are on the rise, but more accurate estimates are needed
A new Birth analysis has uncovered dramatic increases in the rates of maternal mortality -- the death of a mother during pregnancy, childbirth, or post-partum -- in Texas in recent years. There was an 87 percent increase when comparing 2011-2015 data with 2006-2010 data. Some of the increase is likely due to increased overreporting of maternal deaths due to errors in the data collection system, however. (2018-01-04)

Breast screening has had little to do with falling breast cancer deaths

Study compares countries' mortality rates after aneurysm surgery
There is substantial international variation in mortality rates after treatment for abdominal aortic aneurysm, or enlargement of the aorta. A BJS (British Journal of Surgery) study that compared 10-year data from England and Sweden found that mortality rates were initially better in Sweden but improved over time alongside greater use of a minimally invasive procedure called endovascular aneurysm repair in England. Now there is no difference between postoperative mortality rates after aneurysm repair in England and Sweden. (2018-02-22)

Is anesthesia dangerous?
In pure numerical terms, anesthesia-associated mortality has risen again. The reasons for this are the disproportionate increase in the numbers of older and multimorbid patients and surgical procedures that would have been unthinkable in the past. This is the result of a selective literature review of André Gottschalk's working group at the Bochum University Hospital in the current issue of Deutsches Ärzteblatt International. (2011-07-21)

A sausage a day is too many
Anyone who eats over 40 grams a day of sausage products or other kinds of processed meat is asking for trouble: The risk of mortality increases by 18 percent for every 50 grams of processed meat per day. This is the result of a study conducted with around 450,000 participants by the Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine at the University of Zurich in collaboration with research colleagues from all over Europe. (2013-03-06)

Study links omega-3s to reduced mortality
A recent meta-analysis in Scientific Reports supports a link between EPA and DHA omega-3 intake and a reduced risk of death by any cause. The meta-analysis included 11 studies involving 371,965 participants and 31,185 death events, with a subset of the studies being used for different analyses. (2016-06-22)

Higher education associated with greater gains in mortality reduction from common cancers
Deaths due to the four most common cancers have dropped substantially in the US from 1993 to 2001 in working-aged individuals. However, not all Americans are equally likely to benefit from those gains. A study published in the July 8 issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute shows that more educated individuals had mortality reductions in nearly all four cancers, while less educated individuals had a mortality reduction in only one cancer type. (2008-07-08)

Study questions whether screening really cuts breast cancer deaths
A study from Denmark published on today finds no effect of the Danish screening program on breast cancer deaths. (2010-03-23)

The deadly news about all osteoporotic fractures
It is well known that hip and vertebral fractures increase the risk of premature death. Until now, little has been known about the clinical impact of non-hip, non-vertebral fractures -- so new Australian research showing that they may also increase the risk of death will better inform treatment. (2013-11-27)

How safe is the wait?
Patients awaiting coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in Ontario are at much greater risk of death than the general population. However, a new study concludes patients awaiting CABG in Ontario are at similar or decreased vital risk when compared with thousands of other patients living with coronary artery disease. (2000-03-20)

1-year mortality remains high in patients with prosthetic valve endocarditis
Prosthetic valve endocarditis (inflammation and infection involving the heart valves and lining of the heart chambers) remains associated with a high one-year mortality rate and early valve replacement does not appear to be associated with lower mortality compared with medical therapy. (2013-07-15)

Health Benefits Of Fitness
Cardiorespiratory fitness and body fatness were measured by treadmill in 21,925 men aged 30-83, of whom 428 died over 8 year followup. All cause mortality risk was correlated with poor fitness irrespective of body fatness. Thus, fitness is more important than leanness and may reduce obesity risk. (1999-03-01)

Global colorectal cancer mortality rates predicted to rise
In the first effort to predict the future burden of colorectal cancer mortality globally, researchers note that colon and rectal cancer mortality rates are projected to decrease in most countries apart from some Latin American and Caribbean countries, but increases are predicted for several countries from Europe, North America and Oceania. The findings are published in the International Journal of Cancer. (2019-01-09)

Diabetes patients experiencing empathy from PCPs have lower risk of mortality
A United Kingdom study designed to examine the association between primary care practitioner empathy and incidence of cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality among type 2 diabetes patients found that those patients experiencing greater empathy in the year following their diagnosis saw beneficial long-term clinical outcomes. (2019-07-10)

Further Evidence On The Effect Of The UK Cervical Screening Programme
Dr. Peter Sasieni and Joanna Adams from the Imperial Cancer Research Fund support recent findings of a beneficial effect of the UK's national cervical screening programme. They say that before the relaunch of the programme in 1988 screening had a minimal effect on mortality, but since its relaunch screening appears to have reduced cervical cancer mortality by over 60 per cent in those aged under 55 years. (1999-05-07)
