Parallel Routes of Human Carcinoma Development: Implications of the Age-Specific Incidence Data

Figure 3

This is a comparison between the hypotheses and the observed age-specific incidence of colon, lung, prostate, and breast carcinomas in 2003 as recorded by the SEER-9 registries.

In each case, the measured incidence is represented by a point and the 95% confidence intervals by error bars. A solid line represents the hypothesis, (Equation 3 for colon, lung, and prostate carcinomas and Equation 4 breast carcinomas) and the parameters for the model are indicated on the graph.
