In a previous investigation, statistical modelling was used to examine the relationship between large-bowel-cancer incidence and age, time period and birth cohort by anatomic sub-site and sex, using data from the Connecticut Tumor Registry (CTR) for the period 1950 to 1984.
This analysis revealed differences in age-period-cohort patterns that suggested etiologic distinctions among sub-site groupings and between the sexes.
To test the generalizability of the Connecticut findings, we have conducted a similar age-period-cohort analysis using data from the Danish Cancer Registry (DCR) for the period 1953 to 1987.
Cancers of the large bowel were classified into 6 anatomic sub-sites : cecum, ascending colon, transverse colon, descending colon, sigmoid colon and rectum.
