- GPCR data has been published in the Cancer in Five Continents in 2014
Cancer data from Golestan Population-based Cancer Registry (GPCR) has been published in volume X of Cancer Incidence in Five continents (CI5).
CI5 is published approximately every five years (since 1966) by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the International Association of Cancer Registries (IACR) and provides comparable high quality statistics on the incidence of cancer from cancer registries around the world.
No data from Iran was accepted for publication in previous volumes (volume I to IX) of the CI5. Golestan Population-based Cancer Registry
is now the first and the only source of cancer data from Iran, accepted for publication in the last volume of the CI5 (CI5-X). More information on CI5-X is available on IARC website.
