Lancement du site internet des IARC Handbooks of Cancer Prevention

28/08/2014 Le Programme des Monographies du CIRC est heureux d'annoncer le lancement du site internet des manuels de prévention du cancer. Les IARC Handbooks of Cancer Prevention sont des évaluations de différentes approches de prévention primaire et secondaire du cancer. Les précédents volumes de cette série de publications ont évalué l'activité préventive de certains agents chimiques, l'efficacité du dépistage et l'efficacité de mesures de lutte antitabac. Ce nouveau site offre un aperçu complet des IARC Handbooks of Cancer Prevention, avec un accès gratuit à la version PDF des volumes déjà publiés et à la liste des évaluations pour tous les agents et activités évalués à ce jour. Il indique en outre les procédures de travail et les directives à suivre pour les observateurs pour les futurs volumes, et des informations utiles sur les réunions à venir.

Ban on widely used painkiller significantly reduced incidence of renal pelvis cancer

28/08/2014 A new scientific study, conducted jointly by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the New South Wales Cancer Council, evaluates for the first time the long-term impact of the phenacetin ban on upper urinary tract cancer rates. Published today in the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health, the study shows a significant reduction in renal pelvis cancer incidence rates in Australia after phenacetin was banned in 1979, especially among women. Phenacetin, a widely used analgesic, was banned in most countries from the late 1960s because it causes renal diseases and cancers of the upper urinary tract.

Authors: F. Bray, A. Znaor, P. Cueva, A. Korir, R. Swaminathan, A. Ullrich, S.A. Wang, and D.M. Parkin

This guidance document provides an overview of the key concepts in cancer registration, covering the steps involved in planning a registry, the sources of information a registry will need to access, methods for ensuring data quality, and how registry results should be reported. It will be of value to those who are seeking to establish a registry or are in the early stages of developing a registry. It covers the major components that need to be thought about when setting up a registry and ensuring that it provides the necessary information for its main stakeholders -especially those involved in cancer control planning.
