  1. Colorectal cancer mass-screening : Estimation of faecal occult blood test sensitivity, taking into account cancer mean sojourn time.

    Article - En anglais

    Mass screening using the faecal occult blood test (FOBT) can reduce mortality from colorectal cancer.

    Reliable estimation of FOBT sensitivity is crucial in assessing the potential effectiveness of a mass-screening procedure.

    Available estimates could be inaccurate because they neglect the temporal aspect of screening.

    The aim of our study was to estimate the sensitivity of the FOBT in mass screening for colorectal cancer, taking into account the duration of the pre-clinical phase of the disease assessed by the mean sojourn time (MST), and to assess whether MST and FOBT sensitivity differ according to cancer subsite.

    We analysed data taken from the first round of the mass-screening programme of the department of Calvados (France), involving 164,364 subjects of whom 43.4% participated in FOB screening.

    MST and sensitivity were estimated using a simple empirical approach, a traditional maximum likelihood method and log-linear modelling using the Bayesian technique of Gibbs sampling.

    MST was estimated as between 4.5 and 5 years for all subsites combined.

    According to the Gibbs sampling method, MSTs were 3.5,6.4 and 2.6 years for proximal colon, distal colon and rectal cancer, respectively.

    Our estimation methods give a low sensitivity for the FOBT (50%), results for different subsites being closer to each other, slightly higher for proximal cancer. (...)

Fermeture du portail BDSP le 1er juillet 2019

Madame, Monsieur, utilisateurs du site BDSP et de ses services,

Nous avons le regret de vous informer de la fermeture du portail BDSP le 1er juillet 2019.

Pendant une période de transition de six mois, du 1er janvier au 30 juin 2019, le site et ses services resteront accessibles mais ne seront plus alimentés, ni mis à jour.

Plus précisément, concernant le service "Offres d'emploi", les dernières annonces seront publiées le 18 décembre 2018.

Concernant le service "Annonces de colloques", les dernières annonces seront publiées le 30 novembre 2018.

Nous vous informerons régulièrement sur le devenir des services (archivage ouvert, reprise, arrêt) et nous vous proposerons des réorientations vers des services similaires.
