Cancer survival in europe and the United States

Gemma Gatta

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


For most major cancers, there is evidence that patients from affluent neighborhoods have better survival than patients from deprived neighborhoods, and that this is not simply due to chance (Kogevinas, 1990; Kogevinas et al., 1991; Carnon et al., 1994; Sharp et al., 1995; Pollock & Vickers, 1997; Coleman et al., 1999) or extent of disease at the time of diagnosis (Schrijvers et al., 1995a,b). The underlying mechanisms are complex and difficult to address (Tomatis, 1995).
