  1. How prevalent is cancer family syndrome ?

    Article - En anglais

    Based on an established but pragmatic definition of cancer family syndrome as the presence of three or more relatives affected by colorectal cancer in a first degree kinship, the contribution of this syndrome to the total cancer burden in Northern Ireland has been studied by investigating all non-polyposis probands under 55 years old at histological diagnosis between 1976 and 1978.

    Family interviews were possible for 95% (n=205) of all non-polyposis probands and verification of vital status or medical history was obtained for 98% of 1811 first degree relatives.
