Mortality and cancer incidence were analysed in follow-up of a cohort of 3327 Vietnamese refugees who came to Britain after the end of the Vietnam war.
Overall mortality of the refugees was very low compared to expectations based on England and Wales national rates.
This resulted particularly from very low mortality from ischaemic heart disease and colorectal cancer in each sex, and breast cancer in women.
Mortality in the refugees was greatly increased for tuberculosis, cancer of the stomach in both sexes, cancers of the nasopharynx and liver in males, and peptic ulcer in females.
Cancer incidence data showed in addition an excess of cancer of the penis.
