Maria Frånlund, senior doctor at Sahlgrenska University Hospital, has written a dissertation on screening for cancer prostain. It is based on major survey data that started in Gothenburg in 1995, according to the text of the study on the Gothenburg University website.
20,000 people, aged 50 to 64 years old when the study began, were included in the study. Half was selected for a screening group offered for PSA tests every two years and sampling canceled if higher PSA values are found. Attracted to an unattended control group for PSA samples.
Twenty years later, 300 men had died in brutal cancer. The risk is likely to be a lower 30 per cent for the men who are included in the screening body.
According to the Gothenburg University, the study is unique and the most expedient and continuous period of all screening studies for cancer prostain is in the world.
It's coming to & # 39; a year after the National Health and Welfare Board prohibited general exams with PSA exams, as it was considered that adverse effects on bad diagnosis and remedies would consider the benefit.
The survey was built in the regional council for Västra Götaland when Jim Aleberg (S) queried the chairman's question; National Health Board and Medical Services Jonas Andersson (L) Tuesday. Jim Aleberg knew if Jonas Andersson was ready to take steps to introduce a program for PSA tests according to the new inspection.
Jonas Andersson welcomed the new research, but he did not think that the best thing to suit his value was to be evaluated, but he wanted to give up the job. On Wednesday this week, the National Health Services Board receives information from the Program and from a Priority Council, commissioned to examine the systematic sampling of cancer prostain.
– We want to make the way for future screening, but we want to start with organized sampling. Today, this is not an equal care in the department. Those with health exams and good conditions in the leaflet will be & # 39; going to prove itself, but we have a big darkness and there seems to be a bigger death in some groups, Jim Aleberg said in the regional council.
