Cancer Risk in the Swiss HIV Cohort Study: Associations With Immunodeficiency, Smoking, and Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy
[ PUBLICATION ]
BACKGROUND: Persons infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) have an increased risk for several cancers, but the influences of behavioral risk factors, such as smoking and intravenous drug use, and highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) on cancer risk are not clear.
METHODS: Patient records were linked between the Swiss HIV Cohort Study and Swiss cantonal cancer registries. Observed and expected numbers of incident cancers were assessed in 7304 persons infected with HIV ...

Data from the Cancer Registries of the Swiss Cantons of Vaud and Neuchâtel were analysed to examine possible associations between skin cancers (including basal cell carcinoma, BCC), non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL) and chronic lymphocytic leukaemias (CLL). Between 1974 and 1993, 1767 cases of NHL, 351 of CLL, 1678 of cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM), 4131 of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and 10575 of BCC were registered, and contributed to a total of 120103 person-years at risk. Following ...

BACKGROUND: Data and statistics on cancer mortality over the last decades are available for most developed countries, while they are more difficult to obtain, in a standardized and comparable format, for countries of Latin America.
PATIENTS AND METHODS: Age standardized (world population) mortality rates around the year 2000, derived from the WHO database, are presented for 14 selected cancers and total cancer in 10 countries of Latin America, plus, for comparative purposes, Canada and ...

BACKGROUND: In recent decades, there have been substantial changes in mortality from urologic cancers in Europe.
OBJECTIVE: To provide updated information, we analyzed trends in mortality from cancer of the prostate, testis, bladder, and kidney in Europe from 1970 to 2008.
DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: We derived data for 33 European countries from the World Health Organization database.

European cancer mortality predictions for the year 2015: does lung cancer have the highest death rate in EU women?
[ PUBLICATION ]
BACKGROUND: Cancer mortality statistics for 2015 were projected from the most recent available data for the European Union (EU) and its six more populous countries. Prostate cancer was analysed in detail.
PATIENTS AND METHODS: Population and death certification data from stomach, colorectum, pancreas, lung, breast, uterus, prostate, leukaemias and total cancers were obtained from the World Health Organisation database and Eurostat. Figures were derived for the EU, France, Germany, Italy, ...

BACKGROUND: Lung cancer mortality in men has been declining since the late 1980s in most European countries. In women, although rates are still appreciably lower than those for men, steady upward trends have been observed in most countries. To quantify the current and future lung cancer epidemic in European women, trends in lung cancer mortality in women over the last four decades were analyzed, with specific focus on the young.
PATIENTS AND METHODS: Age-standardized (world standard) ...

BACKGROUND: After a peak in the late 1980s, cancer mortality in Europe has declined by ~10% in both sexes up to the early 2000s. We provide an up-to-date picture of patterns and trends in mortality from major cancers in Europe.
METHODS: We analyzed cancer mortality data from the World Health Organization for 25 cancer sites and 34 European countries (plus the European Union, EU) in 2005-2009. We computed age-standardized rates (per 100,000 person-years) using the world standard ...

Time trends in incidence of in situ carcinoma of the breast over the period of 1977-1994 were analysed by histological type and age group, using data from the Cancer Registry of the Swiss Canton of Vaud, covering a population of approximately 295,000 women in 1990. Overall, 399 women with carcinoma in situ of the breast were registered. Age-adjusted (on the world population) incidence rates increased from 2.1/100,000 women in 1977-1979 to 9.4 in 1992-1994 (4.5-fold increase), and the ...

Coffee and Tea Intake and Risk of Head and Neck Cancer: Pooled Analysis in the International Head and Neck Cancer Epidemiology Consortium
[ PUBLICATION ]
BACKGROUND: Only a few studies have explored the relation between coffee and tea intake and head and neck cancers, with inconsistent results.
METHODS: We pooled individual-level data from nine case-control studies of head and neck cancers, including 5,139 cases and 9,028 controls. Logistic regression was used to estimate odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CI), adjusting for potential confounders.
RESULTS: Caffeinated coffee intake was inversely related with the risk of ...

On the basis of overall national death certification data, it is not possible to analyse mortality from cervical cancer in Europe, since 20-65% of deaths from uterine cancer in largest countries are still certified as uterus, unspecified. We analysed, therefore, age-standardised death certification rates from uterine cancer between 1960 and 1998 in women aged 20-44 years, since most deaths from uterine cancer below the age of 45 years arise from the cervix. In all Western European ...

Carcinoma in situ (CIS) of the breast has increased many-fold in incidence rates and as a proportion of new breast cancers following the introduction of mammographic breast screening. To provide population-based estimates of invasive breast cancer risk following CIS, we linked data on 249 incident primary CIS (median age 53 years) to the Cancer Registry of the Swiss Canton of Vaud (about 600,000 inhabitants) over the period 1977-1994. Women with concurrent invasive cancers of the breast ...

Data collected by the Cancer Registry of the Swiss Canton of Vaud (whose population in 1980 was about 530,000 inhabitants) were used to estimate the incidence of second metachronous primary cancers following any specific neoplasm. Among 34,615 cases of incident neoplasms registered between 1974 and 1989 and followed through integrated active follow-up to the end of 1989, for a total of 118,241 person-years at risk, there were 2,185 second primaries (1,280 males, 905 females). For both ...

The authors describe the incidence of new primary cancers among 4,639 cases of squamous cell skin cancer (SCC) diagnosed between 1974 and 1994 in the cancer registries of the Swiss cantons of Vaud and Neuchâtel (total person-years at risk = 23,152). Overall, 729 metachronous cancers were observed versus 527.6 expected, corresponding to a standardized incidence ratio (SIR) of 1.4 (95% confidence interval (CI) 1.3-1.5). After exclusion of skin cancers, however, 384 second primary neoplasms ...

Lung cancer mortality in young women in the European Union (EU) has steadily increased until the mid 1990 s and has levelled off thereafter, but trends have been heterogeneous in various countries. We analyzed therefore age-standardized trends in lung cancer mortality in young women (20-44) for the 6 major European countries, using joinpoint regression. In the early 1970s the highest lung cancer mortality in young women was in the UK (2.1/100,000). UK rates, however, steadily declined ...

Upward trends in incidence and mortality from primary liver cancer have been reported from Japan, the USA and a few European countries. Thus, we systematically reviewed trends in age-standardised death certification rates from primary liver cancer between 1970 and 1996 in 20 European countries providing data for the World Health Organisation database. Overall age-standardised (world population) mortality rates were approximately stable or showed no consistent trends in seven countries, ...
