Considering its high financial and personal costs, colorectal cancer continues to be a major public health problem in the United States and around the world. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States when data are combined for men and women.
Multiple myeloma is a cancer of plasma cells in the bone marrow that often leads to bone destruction and bone marrow failure. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 26,800 new cases of multiple myeloma were diagnosed in 2015, and 11,240 deaths were attributed to the disease.
Asthma, a condition characterized by the narrowing and inflammation of airways and excess mucus, affects 1 in 12 individuals in the United States—approximately 25 million people, or 8% of the US population.
Multiple myeloma is a cancer of plasma cells in the bone marrow that often leads to bone destruction and bone marrow failure. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 26,800 new cases of multiple myeloma were diagnosed in 2015, and 11,240 deaths were attributed to the disease.
Lung cancer is the second most common cancer in the United States. In 2015, an estimated 221,200 new cases of lung cancer were diagnosed, representing 13.3% of all new cancer cases.
Coronary heart disease, more often referred to as cardiovascular disease (CVD) today, is a leading cause of illness and death in the United States. Many risk factors contribute to CVD, including age, family history, obesity, lack of physical activity, diet, smoking, high blood pressure, and high blood cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia).
Hypercholesterolemia, a condition characterized by high levels of cholesterol in the blood, is a major controllable risk factor for coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction, and stroke. The risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) in individuals with high cholesterol is approximately twice that for people with lower cholesterol.
Multiple myeloma is a cancer of plasma cells in the bone marrow that often leads to bone destruction and bone marrow failure. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 26,800 new cases of multiple myeloma were diagnosed in 2015, and 11,240 deaths were attributed to multiple myeloma in the same year.
More than 29 million people in the United States have diabetes, the seventh leading cause of mortality and a major cause of stroke, heart disease, kidney failure, blindness, and other serious conditions. As the US population ages and the number of higher-risk minority groups grows, the incidence of diabetes is projected to nearly double from approximately 8 cases per 1000 individuals in 2008 to approximately 15 cases per 1000 in 2050.
Colony-stimulating factors (CSFs) are endogenous glycoproteins that regulate the production and the functioning of infection-protective granulocytes and macrophages. Overall, 2 types of recombinant CSF drugs—granulocyte CSF (filgrastim, pegfilgrastim) and granulocyte-macrophage CSF (sargramostim)—have been prescribed for more than 20 years to stimulate neutrophils and macrophages, primarily in patients with cancer who are undergoing treatment with cytotoxic chemotherapy.
