INTRODUCTION Cancer has become a major source of morbidity and mortality globally. Despite the threat that cancer poses to public health in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), few countries in this region have data on cancer incidence. In this paper, we present estimates of cancer incidence in Nigeria based on data from 2 population-based cancer registries (PBCR)(More)
Chromatophoromas in the croaker nibe, Nibea mitsukurii, are common neoplasms in feral fish which inhabit the shallow water in a unique geographic distribution along the Pacific coast of Japan. We undertook surveys of the epizootiology of tumor-bearing fish at 25 sites. The highest tumor incidence occurred at the station near the mouth of the Kumano river(More)
A croaker (Nibea mitsukurii) has a high incidence of the skin melanoma, chromatophoroma, in a Pacific coastal area in Japan. A sea catfish (Plotosus anguillaris) bearing skin melanosis is also found in the same area. For elucidation of a correlation between these pigment cell neoplasms of the skin and environmental contaminants, an epidemiological survey(More)
Chromatophoroma in the croaker (Nibea mitsukurii) showed a unique geographic distribution. The contribution of environmental chemicals to the cause of chromatophoroma in the feral croaker is considered likely on the basis of the following results in our studies. 1) Chromatophoroma was induced in tank-reared N. mitsukurii by administration of certain kinds(More)
