Sažetak

Aim To estimate the burden of colorectal cancer (CRC) in
South East Asia.
Methods We reviewed the evidence from the published
literature found through a systematic review in Medline,
Embase, and Global Health and from unpublished data
on cancer registries, which were sourced from the International
Agency for Research on Cancer. Incidence rates
were summarized by calculating descriptive statistics and
meta-analysis estimates.
Results The crude mean incidence of CRC in South East
Asia for both sexes was 6.95/100 000 population and the
incidence increased with age. The crude meta-analysis estimate
was 6.12/100 000 population (95% confidence interval
5.64-6.60/100 000) and the number of new CRC cases
for 2000 was 32 058 (29 544-34 573).
Conclusion The rates of CRC in South East Asia were much
lower than those reported for high-income countries, but
higher than those reported for Sub Saharan Africa.
