NIH to Evaluate New Data on Breast Cancer Screening in Younger Women

BETHESDA, Md—NIH plans a consensus development conference to assess the most recent data on the efficacy of mammography in screening women age 40 to 49 for breast cancer. The agency plans to convene the conference on January 21-23, 1997, on the NIH Bethesda campus.

The consensus panel will consider data published since the National Cancer Institute's 1993 International Workshop on Screening for Breast Cancer. This will include a review of an unpublished meta-analysis carried out by Swedish cancer researchers.
