Other Cancers

CEP research is impacting the current understanding and treatment of a number of cancers. For example, their work has confirmed the hormonal aspects of thyroid cancer etiology and identified goiter and diet as major factors explaining ethnic variation in this disease. Current studies are looking at whether treatment of Helicobacter pylori infection can prevent gastric adenocarcinoma and at how the underreporting of racial/ethnic and socioeconomic patient data by physicians has impacted current estimates of the melanoma epidemic.
