  • In the survey method, the age-specific rate of women not at risk of corpus uterine cancer divided by the age-specific rate of women having undergone a hysterectomy provided an index which was multiplied by the age-specific hysterectomy prevalence obtained from the BRFSS to get an estimate of prevalent proportion of women not at risk of corpus uterine cancers.

  • The two available sources, both authored by Michael Jones-Lee, derive significantly differing adjustment factors, and reflect reflecting the overall uncertainty within the literature about age-specific VSL adjustments.

In addition, mammography utilization data do not suggest substantially elevated rates of screening among Marin County women.

  • To model sub-groups of high and low risk groups within houses, we chose an age cutoff of 15 years based on an examination of the age-specific prevalence within our study and based on reports stating that parenteral treatment of schistosomiasis was stopped between 1982 and 1986, with the introduction of praziquintal, an oral drug used to treat the disease [ 22 ] .

  • Since the primary purpose of examining incidence in Finland was to compare age-specific rates against published distributions of antibody concentrations for the same age groups [12], we restricted our attention to serotype 14 and serogroup 6, for which subsequent investigations suggested antibody measurements in Finland were relatively unaffected by cross-reactions [13] (ELISA measurements for published data from Finland used a special type 6B polysaccharide that was found to minimize cross-reactions [13]).
