Limited population-based cancer registry data available in China until now has hampered efforts to inform cancer control policy. Following extensive efforts to improve the systematic cancer surveillance in this country, we report on the largest pooled analysis of cancer survival data in China to date. Of 21 population-based cancer registries, data from 17(More)
The first cancer registry office was established in 1959 in China. In 1969, most provinces, autonomous regions and independently administered municipal districts had their own cancer prevention offices. In the 1970s, many cancer high incidence areas began their work on cancer registration. Thirty-eight cancer registry offices had been set up by the 1980s.(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze corpus uteri epidemiology in selected cancer registering areas of China during 2003 - 2007, and to provide scientific information for its prevention and control in China. METHODS The incident and mortality data of corpus uteri cancer in 32 cancer registering areas of China with better quality during 2003 - 2007, which were selected(More)
The current situation of cancer registration in China was systematically reviewed. So far, cancer registration in China has been making a great progress in the following aspects: the number of cancer registries and covered population have increased dramatically; a registration network has been established and completed gradually; regulations and rules(More)
Liver cancer is a common malignant tumor in China and a major health concern. We aimed to estimate the liver cancer incidence and mortality in China in 2010 using liver cancer data from some Chinese cancer registries and provide reference for liver cancer prevention and treatment. We collected and evaluated the incidence and mortality data of liver cancer(More)
A nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) mass screening trial using a combination of immunoglobulin A antibodies to Epstein-Barr virus capsid antigen and nuclear antigen-1 by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in addition to indirect mirror examination in the nasopharynx and/or lymphatic palpation (IMLP) was conducted in southern China. Cantonese aged 30-59 years(More)
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is common in South China. Although regional epidemiological data on NPC in China is available, national epidemiological data have been unavailable up to now. The goal of this study was to analyze the NPC incidence and mortality data in some domestic cancer registries, estimate these rates in China in 2010, and provide(More)
Research papers and data concerning NPC epidemiology in China available worldwide were reviewed. It was found that although the results of three national all death-causes sampling surveys in China showed mortality rates in most sampling areas and all as overall to be declining continuously and remarkably, figures for 1987-2000 in some selected areas of(More)
OBJECTIVES To explore nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC) incidence and pathological data of Zhongsha, China, in 1970-2007, and to provide scientific information for prevention and control. METHODS From Zhongshan Cancer Registry NPC data, incident numbers, crude incidence rates, age -adjusted incidence rates, proportion of pathology and incident trends were(More)
BACKGROUND Surveying regional cancer incidence and mortality provides significant data that can assist in making health policy for local areas; however, the province- and region-based cancer burden in China is seldom reported. In this study, we estimated cancer incidence and mortality in Guangdong Province, China and presented basic information for making(More)
