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

Figure 4

The breast carcinoma disparity between African-American and white women is not due to breast carcinoma A, which occurs at exactly the same rate, but solely due to a difference in breast carcinoma B.

The data are from the SEER-17 database during the year 2000 [17]. In each case, the measured incidence is represented by a point and the 95% confidence intervals by error bars. The dark solid lines represents predicted incidence levels based upon the hypothesis, Equation 4, which is the sum of breast carcinoma A and breast carcinoma B indicated by the other curves.
