Compared with their counterparts north of the border, middle-class and upper-middle-class US residents have similar odds of surviving cancer. However, America's less well-off residents do not fare as well as those in Canada, according to new study findings.

Among people on the bottom one third of the socioeconomic ladder, Canadians were about 35% more likely to survive cancer than similar US residents, researchers report. ``There seems to be a significant Canadian survival advantage,'' the study's lead author, Dr. Kevin M. Gorey, of University of Windsor in Ontario, told Reuters Health in an interview.

Differences in the Canadian and US healthcare systems probably account for the better survival odds among Canada's poorer residents, Gorey and his colleagues report in the Journal of Public Health Medicine.
