  1. Esophageal balloon cytology and subsequent risk of esophageal and gastric-cardia cancer in a high-risk Chinese population.

    Article - En anglais

    Linxian, China has some of the highest rates of esophageal/gastric cardia cancer in the world.

    In 1083, esophageal balloon cytology screening was performed in 3 communes in northern Linxian.

    Of the participants, 10,066 with no evidence of cancer were followed prospectively for 7 1/2 years to evaluate the ability of the initial cytologic diagnoses to identify individuals at increased risk for developing cancer of the esophagus or gastric cardia.

    A total of 747 incident cases of esophageal or cardia cancer and 322 deaths due to these tumors were identified during the follow-up period and used in this analysis.

    The risks for esophageal or cardia cancer incidence and mortality increased in parallel with the presumed severity of the 1083 Chinese cytologic diagnoses.
