Reporting from the USA: Gains in Colorectal Cancer Outcomes Slowing, Reversing

Decreases in colorectal cancer (CRC) diagnoses and deaths among adults in their 50s and 60s have slowed compared with previous decades, according to a study recently published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology.

Caitlin C. Murphy, Ph.D., M.P.H., from University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, and colleagues used the National Cancer Institute Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results data to analyze temporal trends in CRC incidence and mortality by five-year age group (age 30 to ≥85 years), as well as trends in relative survival, during a 28-year period (1992 to 2019).
