Cancer Incidence, Survival, and Mortality among American Indians and Alaska Natives.
Horm, John W.; Burhansstipanov, Linda
American Indian Culture and Research Journal, v16 n3 p21-39 1992
Overall cancer incidence among southwestern American Indians is less than half that of U.S. whites; Alaska Native and white rates are similar. However, both native groups have elevated rates for specific cancers (stomach, liver, and gallbladder), and Indians have low five-year survival rates. Data tables outline incidence, mortality, and survival rates. (SV)
