  1. Screening for colorectal cancer with fecal occult blood testing and sigmoidoscopy.

    Article - En anglais


    The high incidence of and mortality from colorectal cancer (160000 new cases and 60000 deaths in the United States each year) are compelling public health concerns.

    Following the evolution of effective surgery for this disease since the 1960s, the focus has been on improving methods of detection and integrating them into effective screening programs.


    This was the first study to evaluate the effectiveness, in a setting of comprehensive medical examinations, of using the fecal occult blood test in conjunction with sigmoidoscopy, rather than sigmoidoscopy alone, to screen for colorectal cancer.
