  • Fertility and Smoking: Mortality Due to Endometrial Cancer in Japan

    • Authors: Motoi Nishi
      Abstract: Background: In Japan, the crude mortality rate (mortality rate) due to endometrial cancer is increasing. Using published data, the contributions of fertility and smoking, which are risk factors for endometrial cancer, were analyzed from the viewpoint of age and time.Materials and Methods: The data on the numbers of deaths due to endometrial cancer (ICD10 code, C54; from 1995 to 2019), live births, and female population were obtained from the website of Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of the Japanese Government (the vital statistics of Japan). The data on the smoking rates of females were obtained from the website of JT (Japan Tobacco). Pearson’s correlation coefficients were calculated.Results: There was a large difference in the mortality rates of endometrial cancer between the groups aged 49 years or younger and the groups aged 50 years or older. There were strong negative correlations between the birth rate in the group aged 20-29 years and the mortality rates in the groups aged 40-49 (r=-0.901) and 50-59 years (r=-0.794). However, there was no correlation between the birth rate in the group aged 20-29 years and the mortality rate in the group aged 60-69 years (r=0.00). There was a strong positive correlation between the birth rate in the group aged 30-39 years and the mortality rate in the group aged 50-59 years, which seems to reflect the delay in childbirth from the 20s to the 30s. There were positive correlations between the smoking rate in the group aged 20-29 and the mortality rates in the groups aged 40-49, 50-59 and 60-69 years (r= 0.882, 0.818, 0.896, respectively). In contrast, there were negative correlations between the smoking rate in the group aged 50-59 years and the mortality rates in the groups aged 70-79 (r=-0.702) and 80-89 years (r=-0.937).Conclusions: The preventive effects of giving birth in the 20s may be much larger than those of giving birth in the 30s. The contributions of smoking might vary, depending on the age at onset of this cancer and/or the duration of smoking. It is thus necessary to reexamine the contributions of the risk factors more minutely from the viewpoint of age and the period of exposure.

  • Global Scientific Research Progress in Thyroid Cancer: A Bibliometric

    • Authors: Hassan H. Musa, Idriss H. Musa, Mansour El-Sharief, Taha H. Musa
      Abstract: The incidence of thyroid cancer (TC) has rapidly increased in the world. The study aims to provide a detailed evaluation of thyroid cancer research output. Data were retrieved from the Web of Science (WOS) Core Collection and Scopus databases for bibliometric analysis. A total of 10689 and 9063 documents of TC were retrieved from Scopus and WOS, respectively. Dramatic growth in the global TC research was observed from 1991-2020. USA, China, Italy, Korea, Japan and Germany were the leading countries; the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and the University of Pisa were the leading institutes in thyroid cancer research at the global level. A scientist from the division of medicine, biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology were contributed more than 85% of the publications. USA agencies supported 25.68% of TC research. Journal of thyroid and journal of clinical endocrinology and metabolism are the most productive journals. Wang Y and Tuttle RM were the top productive, authors. Revised American thyroid association management guidelines for patients with thyroid nodules and differentiated thyroid cancer authored by Cooper DS et al., published in 2009, was the most cited article. The most retrieved keywords were thyroid cancer, papillary thyroid cancer, and differentiated thyroid cancer. The study concludes that USA institutes and funding agencies contribute to thyroid cancer research at a global level. Papillary thyroid cancer is a hot topic for research.

  • Bibliometric Analysis of the top 50 Most-cited Articles of Esophagus

    • Authors: Idriss H. Musa, Taha H. Musa, Hassan H. Musa, Reem M.H. Balila, Mahamed E. Ahmed
      Abstract: A wealth of articles were published on Esophagus Cancer (EC) indexed in many databases in the world. But there is no comprehensive bibliometric analysis to summarized EC research. The study aimed to identify and provide a practical summary of the 50 most influential articles written on EC. Top 50 article search was conducted in July 2020 using MesH database of medical subject headings of the US National Library of Medicine. Data were evaluated based on the title, trends, citations report, authorship, countries/regions, organizations, and journals. The retrieved data were analyzed using, HistCite, VOSviewer 1.6.10 and R-package. The top 50 articles include 31(62%) full research paper, 10(20%) proceedings, and 9 (18%) review articles. The most cited articles were published between 1961 and 2019, with citation ranging from 329 to 2283. The majority of articles originated from the United States (60%), Germany (21%), Japan (10%), and China (10%). The National Cancer Institute and the University of Washington were the most productive institutions. Blot WJ, and Vaughan TL, were the most prolific author. Most articles were published by the New England Journal of Medicine, followed by Gastroenterology and Journal of Clinical Oncology. The top three co-cited journals were the Gastroenterology, Cancer Research and American Journal of Gastroenterology, and International Journal of Cancer. We identified the top 50 most-cited articles and hosted keywords used in EC, in addition to the most productive authors, institution, and countries that provided a systematic overview of research and information that may offer deep insights into the study in the medical field and policymaker to prioritizing future research efforts in EC research.
