LSUHSC's Dr. Xiao Cheng Wu co-authors annual report to the nation on cancer
Date:11/25/2008

gh 2001 and 2.0% per year from 2001 through 2005 in men and by 0.8% per year from 1994 through 2002 and 1.6% per year from 2002 through 2005 in women.
  • Death rates for all cancers combined (2001-2005) were highest for blacks and lowest for Asian American/Pacific Islander(API) men and women. Cancers of the lung, prostate and colorectum were the three leading causes of cancer death in rank order among men for each major racial and ethnic population, except API men in whom cancer of the liver ranked second. The corresponding leading causes of cancer death in rank order among women were lung, breast and colorectum, except among Hispanic women in whom breast cancer ranked first.
  • Among men, the lung cancer death rate decreased during the years 1996 to 2005 in 44 of the 50 states and in the District of Colombia, whereas in women, the death rate decreased in only three states (California, New Jersey, and Texas), and increased in 13 states (Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kansas, South Dakota, Indiana, Michigan, and Iowa.
  • Trends in initiation of smoking among 12-17 year-old adolescents in the United States, 1940 through 2000, show that initiation rates increased sharply in girls from 1965 through 1975. Subsequently, rates decreased through mid the 1980s in both girls and boys, but rose again from 1990 through the mid-1990s, especially in boys. Initiation rates were similar for boys and girls during the most recent data years (1996 through 2000).
  • The researchers conclude that while the decrease in overall cancer incidence and death rates is encouraging, the large state and regional differences in lung cancer trends among women underscore the need to maintain and strengthen many state tobacco control programs.
