  1. International variations in the incidence of neuroblastoma.

    Article - En anglais

    The international Agency for Research on Cancer has coordinated a worldwide study of childhood cancer incidence, with data from over 50 countries.

    In predominantly white Caucasian populations the age-standardized rate was 7-12 per million, and 6-10% of all childhood cancers were neuroblastomas.

    Rates were highest in the first year of life (25-50 per million, 30% of total neuroblastoma incidence), and decreased with age to 15-20 per million (50% of the total) at age 1-4, 2-4 per million (15%) at 5-9 and 1-1.5 per million (5%) at 10-14.
