The purpose of this study was to elucidate the nature of the control mechanism of human carcinogenesis by applying regression analysis technique to the world statistics of various human neoplasias.
The information used in the present study covers 19 cancers in the tumor spectrum, 47 cancer registration areas in space, and the years 1978 to 1982 in time.
The risk for each cancer was expressed in terms of the annual age-adjusted incidence rate (AAIR).
Results obtained are as follows:
1) The regression analysis of the world statistics demonstrated the existence of 3 subfamilies of cancer: a) Western type subfamily including 13 cancers; b) non-Western type subfamily including 4 cancers; c) independent type subfamily including 2 cancers.
