The impact of therapeutic improvements in reducing peptic ulcer mortality in Europe.
Trends in death certification rates from peptic ulcer between 1955 and 1989 have been analysed for 24 European countries on the basis of age-specific and age-standardized rates, and a log-linear model to estimate the effects of age, cohort of birth and period of death.
For males, in all Western countries there were substantial declines in mortality.
In the late 1950s, the range of variation of the world standardized rates was between 4/100 000 in France and 17.8 in Portugal.
