New Publication on Early Age Onset CRC Incidence in Black and White Adults

Earlier this week, Jordan Karlitz, MD, NCCRT Steering Committee member and co-authors published “Trends in the Incidence of Early-Onset Colorectal Adenocarcinoma Among Black and White US Residents Aged 40 to 49 Years, 2000-2017” in JAMA Network Open. The study provides a detailed look at CRC incidence rates in Black and White individuals in the 40-49-year-old age group, with findings suggesting that uniform implementation of screening options among individuals aged at least 45 years may help curtail rising CRC rates in other racial and ethnic groups.
