    Article, Congrès - En anglais

    National conference on colorectal cancer. New Orleans LA (USA), 1991/03/20.


    Colorectal cancer is a major target of inquiry into the effectiveness of screening in the control of the disease by earlier detection and possibly reduced incidence after removal of polyps.

    Four randomized clinical trials are in process to determine the efficacy of fecal occult blood tests (FOBT) in reducing mortality from colorectal cancer.


    General issues that affect decisions to initiate screening, benefits and risks, and precision of screening are discussed.
