New data on cancer survival in Europe show more patients are cured

is saves the lives of women with breast cancer by rendering their disease more curable," said Dr Capocaccia.

The EUROCARE study has been running since 1990 and is the widest epidemiological study on the survival of cancer patients in Europe. This most recent report, EUROCARE-4, includes data from 93 population-based cancer registries in 23 European countries, covering a total population of about 151,400,000, which represents 35% of the total population in those countries. The EUROCARE-4 database contains the anonymised records for more than 13,500,000 cancer patients diagnosed during the period 1978-2002, with information on their vital status up to 31 December 2003 or later. Preliminary data on survival from EUROCARE-4 were published in 2007.

In addition to the estimates of the proportion of patients cured, data in the EJC special issue that are new since 2007 include comparisons of survival between the elderly and the middle-aged, between men and women and the survival of children.

Survival of the elderly (70-99 years) was lower than for middle-aged patients (55-69 years). Dr Capocaccia said: "This is probably due to more advanced stage of disease at diagnosis, other serious conditions, and more difficult access to, or lack of availability of, appropriate care. The difference was particularly evident for women. During the period 1995-2002 covered by EUROCARE-4, five-year survival improved less for patients aged 70-84 than for those aged 55-69, widening the gap in survival between these two age bands. Survival differences between the oldest and middle-aged patients were mainly concentrated in the first year after diagnosis: five-year survival conditional on survival for the first year after diagnosis varied much less with age than unconditional five-year survival, suggesting that older patients are often diagnosed too late to be efficiently treated."

Women have longer life expectancy than men and better survival from chronic dise
