221. Mammographic screening and mortality from breast cancer: the Malmö mammographic screening trial. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Mammographic screening and mortality from breast cancer: the Malmö mammographic screening trial. To determine whether mortality from breast cancer could be reduced by repeated mammographic screening.Birth year cohorts of city population separately randomised into study and control groups.Screening clinic outside main hospital.Women aged over 45; 21,088 invited for screening and 21,195 in control group.Women in the study group were invited to attend for mammographic screening at intervals of 18 (...) -24 months. Five rounds of screening were completed. Breast cancer was treated according to stage at diagnosis.Mortality from breast cancer.All women were followed up and classed at end point as alive without breast cancer, alive with breast cancer, dead from breast cancer, or dead from other causes. Cause of death was taken from national mortality registry and for patients with breast cancer was validated independently. Mean follow up was 8.8 years. Altogether 588 cases of breast cancer were

222. Survival in breast cancer diagnosed between mammographic screening examinations. (Abstract)

Survival in breast cancer diagnosed between mammographic screening examinations. In women drawn from a randomised, population-based trial of mammography screening for breast cancer the overall actuarial survival and disease-free survival for up to 7 years of observation were similar in 94 patients with interval cancers and 178 control patients with cancer diagnosed independent of screening. The similarity was confirmed by multiple regression analysis. These results contradict the hypothesis (...) that a high growth rate of the primary tumour is associated with a greater metastatic potential and do not support the concept that patients with interval cancers should receive more aggressive local or systemic treatment.

223. Reduction in mortality from breast cancer after mass screening with mammography. Randomised trial from the Breast Cancer Screening Working Group of the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare. (Abstract)

Reduction in mortality from breast cancer after mass screening with mammography. Randomised trial from the Breast Cancer Screening Working Group of the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare. A randomised controlled trial to investigate the efficacy of mass screening with single-view mammography in reducing mortality from breast cancer was started in Sweden in 1977. 162 981 women aged 40 years or more and living in the counties of Kopparberg and Ostergötland were enrolled in the study (...) and divided at random into 2 groups. Each woman in the study group was offered screening every 2 or 3 years depending on age. Women in the control group were not offered screening. This report is confined to the 134 867 women aged 40-74 years at date of entry. The results to the end of 1984 show a 31% reduction in mortality from breast cancer and a 25% reduction in the rate of stage II or more advanced breast cancers in the group invited to screening. 7 years after the start of the study the excess

224. Reduction of breast cancer mortality through mass screening with modern mammography. First results of the Nijmegen project, 1975-1981. (Abstract)

Reduction of breast cancer mortality through mass screening with modern mammography. First results of the Nijmegen project, 1975-1981. Since 1975 four rounds of screening with modern mammography for breast cancer have been carried out among 30 000 Nijmegen women born before 1940. The results up to the end of 1981 shows that the odds ratio of screened vs unscreened subjects among women who died from breast cancer compared with women who did not, was 0.48 (95% confidence interval 0.23-1.00
