Abstract Introduction The objective of this study was to analyze the survival of patients with lung cancer by TNM stage in the 4-year periods 2003–2006, 2007–2010 and 2011–2014, treated in the Basque Health Service, and to compare this with survival in an equivalent sample of the general population. Methods A retrospective observational design was applied to cases from the Hospital Cancer Registry of Euskadi. A cohort of 11,635 patients had complete data for the following variables: TNM stage, a...

Background It has been argued that laparoscopy should be a standard treatment in rectal cancer due to its greater technical complexity. The objective of this study was to conduct a cost-effectiveness analysis to compare laparoscopy with open surgery for rectal cancer adjusting for age and clinical stage.

Abstract Objective To carry out a cost-utility analysis of the application of the Oncotype genomic test to inform the decision to use or not to use chemotherapy in the Basque Country (Spain). Method The cost-utility study was carried out using a discrete event simulation model representing the natural history of breast cancer. The decision of treatment with chemotherapy based on Oncotype was compared with the standard of treatment based on clinical-pathological criteria. The model included clini...

Abstract This study aimed to explain a joint statistical procedure (two-part models and Cholesky decomposition) to incorporate second-order uncertainty from covariate adjusted mean utility functions in probabilistic cost-effectiveness models. First, two-part models were applied to obtain parameters for the utility function. Second, a new set of correlated parameters for each simulation was obtained by Cholesky decomposition. The procedure was applied to EuroQol5D-5L in the Spanish Health Survey ...

Abstract Introduction Few studies have been conducted to establish the relationship between colorectal cancer screening programmes and survival adjusting by stage and, to determine whether there are differences, at a biological level, between the tumours of asymptomatic and symptomatic patients. Accordingly, the aim of this study is to evaluate clinical, biological and survival differences between symptomatic colorectal tumours and those detected by screening. Study method A prospective cohort s...

Abstract Background The finding of hypovitaminosis in pregnancy D has prompted the debate about its supplementation. The objective of the study was to measure the prevalence of hypovitaminosis D in mothers and newborns. Methods A one-year observational study was conducted including the measuring of vitamin D levels in mothers and in the umbilical cord blood of newborns. An analysis was made of the variables as regards maternal characteristics, delivery and sun exposure. Results Values lower than...
