LSUHSC paper judged best of the year
Date:5/28/2013

New Orleans, LA The Journal of Registry Management, the official journal of the National Cancer Registrars Association, has selected an LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans paper as the Best Paper of the Year. The paper is entitled "Evaluating Factors Associated with Unknown SEER Summary Stage 2000 Derived from Collaborative Stage at Central Registry Level." The paper's lead author is Mei-Chin Hsieh, MSPH, CTR, of the Louisiana Tumor Registry, a program of the LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans School of Public Health. LSUHSC co-authors include Qingzhao Yu, PhD, Xiao-Cheng Wu, MD, MPH and Ying Fan, PhD.

This is the second time that the Louisiana Tumor Registry at LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans has received this honor from the National Cancer Registrars Association and its journal.

The cancers analyzed were invasive colorectal, lung, female breast, and prostate cancers diagnosed between 2004 and 2007, based upon data obtained from 47 population-based cancer registries in the United States.

The study found that overall, lung cancer had the highest percentage of unknown stage (8.3%) and prostate cancer had the largest variation of unknown stage among registries (0.6%-18.1%). The study also found that, while factors associated with unknown stage differ by cancer site, the type of reporting source is an important predictor.

Variables associated with unknown stage included African-American ethnicity, smaller population, diagnosis year 2005, and non-hospital reporting source. The paper concluded that central registries with high percentages of unknown stage should be made aware of their data quality issues so they can investigate the contributing factors and provide training to registrars to improve their c
