Researchers extracted data from the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR) for the years 1995 to 2018. The NAACCR dataset consists of information from all US-based cancer registries, including patient demographics and medical history. The present analysis categorized all cases of invasive pancreatic cancer as either EOPC or late-onset pancreatic cancer (LOPC) based on a cut-off age of 55 years. Annual age-adjusted incidence rates for both EOPC and LOPC were calculated for the entire cohort, then for each sex- and race-based strata. Annual percent change in age-adjusted incidence rates were also estimated. Read more . . .
Between 1995 and 2018, non-Hispanic White and Hispanic women in the United States experienced the greatest increases in early-onset pancreatic cancer (EOPC) incidence, according to study results published in Gastroenterology.
