Ophira Ginsburg: Thanks for sharing the importance of sex disaggregated data

Ophira Ginsburg shared a post by Alvaro Carrascal, Assistant Professor Emeritus, Dep. Epidemiology and Biostatistics, University at Albany School of Public Health, on LinkedIn:

“Thanks for sharing this important study that once again shows the importance of sex disaggregated data!”

Quoting Alvaro Carrascal‘s post:

“Women, HIV and Anal Cancer. From National Cancer Institute (NCI) a retrospective cohort study analyzing 2001-19 data from the HIV/AIDS Cancer Match Study suggests HIV is associated with all-cause mortality among patients with anal cancer, especially women. Anal cancer-specific mortality was found elevated only among female patients with HIV.”
