  1. The epidemiology of pancreatic diseases in Japan.

    Article - En anglais

    We reviewed the trends and death rates of pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis in Japan over the past four decades.

    It is a disturbing fact that the death rate due to pancreatic cancer is rising, parallel to that of lung cancer and colon cancer and that it is affecting primarily the elderly 65 years and older in both sexes.

    The cause of this increase is partially attributable to improvements in the diagnosis, changes in life-style, and smoking.

    The death rate due to chronic and acute pancreatitis has remained constant during the past four decades.
