Teleworking, centralization of registry functions, and lack of access to other members of the cancer care team, specifically pathologists, can result in misinterpretation of data and inaccurate reporting to the NCDB
The researchers detected CTCs in 23.5 and 19.4 percent of the NCDB
and SUCCESS cohorts, respectively.
Data on all types of cancer are tracked and analyzed through the NCDB
and used to explore trends in cancer care.

looked through the data recorded between 2004 and 2012 in NCDB
to evaluate the outcome of RT therapy in patients with mPCa at diagnosis.
Though the treatment specific data available through the NCDB
did not offer any additional insight into this unique discrepancy, it is very thought provoking.

database captures 70% of all newly diagnosed cancers.
They reported lowest levels of use of mental health services and intervener services (i.e., related service providers who provide consistent one-on-one support to aid the student in communicating with and accessing his or her environment; NCDB
Information gathered from the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB
) and the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) registries, both of which collect data relating to the diagnosis and treatment of individuals with cancer, reveal that there were an estimated 13.7 million Americans with a history of cancer alive on January 1, 2012.
The work presented here is based on poverty data derived from GeoLytics Neighborhood Change Database (NCDB
): 1970-2000, based on Census 2000 tracts boundaries.
For the current study, scientists led by Helmneh Sineshaw, M.D., MPH, analyzed data from 260,174 breast cancer cases recorded in the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB
), a national hospital-based cancer registry database jointly sponsored by the American College of Surgeons and the American Cancer Society.
A limitation of this study was that it included the Z0011 trial  with the two retrospective SEER study  and NCDB
study  in a meta-analysis, resulting in large I-squared statistics and relatively long confidence intervals with significant heterogeneity.
