On weekdays, the journal publishes peer-reviewed clinical research and commentary in more than 40 medical and health subject areas. Every article is free online from the day of publication.


About The Study: The findings of this meta-analysis of 47 studies and more than 1 million patients suggest that there is a significant interaction between race and social determinants of health with respect to prostate cancer–specific mortality and overall survival among men with prostate cancer. Incorporating social determinants of health variables into data collection and analyses are vital to developing strategies for achieving equity.
