Abstract

Re-analysis of the ERSPC data suggests that if screening is carried out for several years, and if follow-up is pursued until the reduction becomes manifest, the reduction in mortality will be 50-60%. An analysis that includes the 2007-2008 follow-up data is required to quantify more precisely the impact of this intervention.
