Kaiser Permanente Researcher Profiles


 
Lawrence H. Kushi, ScD, is Director of Scientific Policy at the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research. Prior to joining the Division of Research, Dr. Kushi was at Columbia University, where he held the Ella McCollum Vahlteich Chair in Human Nutrition in the Department of Health and Behavior Studies, Teachers College; and he was a member of the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center. Dr. Kushi is internationally recognized for his expertise in nutritional epidemiology, and his research interests focus on the role of diet and nutrition in the etiology of coronary artery disease and breast and other cancers. He serves on a grant review committee for the American Cancer Society and has served on various American Cancer Society committees to develop guidelines for the dietary prevention and management of cancer. Dr. Kushi has also served on review committees for the Epidemiology and Disease Control Study Section of the National Institutes of Health, and the Integration Panel of the Breast Cancer Research Program of the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command. He was formerly the chair of the Food and Nutrition Section of the American Public Health Association; on the executive committee of the American Society of Preventive Oncology; and has worked at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. Dr. Kushi graduated from Amherst College and the Harvard School of Public Health.

Germline and Tumor Genomic Analyses of Breast Cancer in Latinas

​This project expands a consortium of studies examining germline genetic mutations in breast cancer risk in Latinas. It builds on a study that will include approximately 550 Latina women with breast cancer in the Pathways Study; genetic data from Latina women without breast cancer will be contributed from Kaiser Permanente Northern California’s Research Program on Genes, Environment and Health. Led by Susan Neuhausen, PhD, of City of Hope, and Elad Ziv, MD, of UC San Francisco, this project further incorporates Latina cases and controls from studies led by Dr. Neuhausen. While this project includes investigation of tumor DNA, Pathways Study and Kaiser Permanente Northern California participants will not be included in that aspect.

Adolescent and Young Adult Female Cancer Survivors - Cancer Experience Survey

​​This study aims to: 1) assess reproductive intentions and receipt of fertility counseling or preservation in relation to post-diagnosis birth outcomes among adolescent and young adult cancer survivors in North Carolina and the Kaiser Permanente Northern California and Kaiser Permanente Southern California health systems; 2) examine infertility, pregnancy loss history, and use of infertility services among adolescent and young adult cancer survivors within those health systems compared to the U.S. general population; and 3) examine the frequency of self-reported cancer recurrence among adolescent and young adult female cancer survivors in North Carolina and in those health systems, and examine the impact of cancer recurrence on post-diagnosis birth rates. Current recommendations for when to attempt pregnancy after cancer diagnosis (typically two to five years) are often based on identified periods of highest cancer recurrence risk, rather than optimal timing for achieving pregnancy, but recurrence information is rarely available.

Obesity, Chemotherapy Dosing, and Breast Cancer Outcomes

Body size is associated with survival in women with breast cancer in complicated ways. Chemotherapy to treat breast cancer is typically dosed based on body size, often as a function of body surface area. Previously, there was concern that obese patients may receive doses of chemotherapy that may be too toxic given their higher body surface area, resulting in dose capping. This has resulted in the suggestion that obese women were receiving less-than-optimal doses for cancer treatment. Indeed, in 2012, the American Society of Clinical Oncology recommended that doses of chemotherapy not be capped. This project, enabled by availability of detailed infusion data, examines the impact of body size on chemotherapy dosing and subsequent outcomes. The project builds upon pilot work conducted in the Pathways Study cohort of 4,505 women with breast cancer, expands to other women with electronic data only, and includes over 4,000 women with breast cancer at Kaiser Permanente Washington. This project is led by Dr. Elizabeth Kantor at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

End-of-Life Care for Adolescents and Young Adults with Cancer: An Evaluation of Care and Development of Patient-Centered Quality Measures

This project examines aspects of end-of-life care for people diagnosed with adolescent and young adult cancers (ages 15 to 39 years). Current measures of end-of-life care quality were designed for older adults; a coherent set of measures to characterize high-quality end-of-life care for adolescent and young adult cancer patients does not exist. This study seeks to answer the questions: What is the quality of end-of-life care for adolescents and young adults with cancer, and what is a patient-centered definition of high-quality end-of-life care for adolescents and young adults facing terminal illness? The aims of this project are to examine the quality of end-of-life care in adolescent and young adult cancer patients, identify sources of variation in end-of-life care, and develop a set of indicators of end-of-life care quality suitable for adolescent and young adult cancers. Data from about 1,800 patients diagnosed from 2000 to 2015 with adolescent and young adult cancers in Kaiser Permanente Northern California and Kaiser Permanente Southern California will be included in data-only aspects, with in-depth interviews of patients, family members, and providers from these Kaiser Permanente regions and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to better identify factors that may improve end-of-life care quality. This project is led by Dr. Jennifer Mack at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

Clinical Pregnancy Outcomes in Adolescent and Young Adult Female Cancer Survivors

Post-diagnosis fertility is a critical issue for adolescent and young adult cancer survivors (diagnosed at age 15 to 39 years), with little information on the impact of cancer diagnosis and treatment on pregnancy outcomes. This study focuses on five leading cancer types among female adolescent and young adult cancer survivors: breast, melanoma, thyroid, and Hodgkins and non-Hodgkins lymphomas. We will analyze North Carolina state-wide cancer registry data linked to claims and offspring birth records from 2003 to 2012, as well as data from Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC) and Kaiser Permanente Southern California (KPSC) for 2000 to 2016. Study aims include assessment of adverse pregnancy outcome risk among 7,200 female adult and young adult cancer survivors at KPNC and KPSC, with 1,300 births, matched five-to-one to 36,000 women without a prior cancer diagnosis on age and enrollment year. Adverse pregnancy outcome risk will also be assessed among 8,000 female adult and young adult cancer survivors in North Carolina, matched five-to-one on maternal age, state, and delivery year. Additionally, the impact of fertility preservation counseling and use on risk of adverse pregnancy and birth outcomes will be evaluated.

Infrastructure for Pathways, a Prospective Study of Breast Cancer Survivorship

This grant provides core infrastructure support for the Pathways Study (Kushi, PI), a prospective cohort study of breast cancer survivorship and prognosis. Since 2006, the study enrolled 4,505 women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in KPNC. Activities (Ambrosone, Christine, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Co-PI) include ongoing follow-up of participants, active and passive ascertainment of outcomes, collection of tumor specimens, linkage to KPNC electronic records, enhancement of area-level data from contextual databases through virtual neighborhood audits, provision of genotypic data from genome-wide assays, and establishment of a community and participant advisory board. These activities enhance the Pathways Study to make it an unparalleled, outstanding resource for studies of breast cancer prognosis.
