  1. Increased incidence of germ cell testicular cancer in New Zealand maoris.

    Article - En anglais

    A higher incidence of germ cell testicular cancer was found in Maoris (6.84/100,000) compared with non-Maoris (5.26/100,000) in New Zealand from 1975 to 1986, especially in the 15-49 year age group (Maoris 12.30/100,000, non-Maoris 9.47/100,000; P=0.04).

    Previous studies have shown Whites to have the highest incidence of this malignancy.

    Possible reasons for this and some other epidemiological features are discussed.
