IACR 2012 - Cork

David Forman (IARC) presented an update on the 10th volume of Cancer Incidence in Five Continents – Volume X (CI5-X). (see full report below) Dr Forman took this opportunity to acknowledge the great achievement of 17 cancer registries that had contributed to all ten CI5 volumes: Cali (Colombia), Alberta, Manitoba, Newfoundland and Saskatchewan (Canada), Connecticut (USA), Israel, Miyagi (Japan), Denmark, Finland, Norway, Slovenia, Sweden, North West England and West Midlands (UK), New Zealand and Hawaii. Most cancer registries were represented to receive this award.

Other keynote speakers included Dr. Joe Selby (USA) who spoke on ‘Registries and clinical data networks: support patient Centered Outcomes Research’; Professor Lonneke van de Poll-Franse (The Netherlands):  ‘From cancer registries to cancer patient registry: population based quality of life research using cancer registry’; and Professor Mary Gospodarowicz, newly elected UICC President: ‘UICC efforts in cancer control’.


The 2012 annual meeting also introduced the first Johannes Clemmesen Lecture, delivered by Hans Storm, based on the extensive contribution Dr Clemmesen had made to the development of cancer registration. For the first time the conference was available through webcasts.


The third prize was awarded to Susan Spillane from Dublin (Ireland) for her presentation of the study: "Use of the antidiabetic drug metformin and disease spread at diagnosis in colorectal cancer".
