    • Description:
      The leukemia surveillance program was begun in 1966 by the National Communicable Disease Center (NCDC) in association with the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The program consists of a series of leukemia case reporting projects in different parts of the United States with a central case registry maintained at the NCDC. The program's goals are 1) to develop a source of accurate and current leukemia incidence data in the United States and 2) to assist research efforts, especially in the area of viral leukemogenesis, by identifying promptly after diagnosis individual cases or groups of cases worth special epidemiologic, genetic and virologic investigation.

      This report contains data obtained through State and Local Health Departments participating in the leukemia surveillance program. Much of this information is preliminary and it is distributed primarily for the use of persons concerned with leukemia and cancer case-reporting or with related epidemiologic activities. Anyone wishing to quote this report is urged to consult the original investigators for confirmation and interpretation.

      This report presents data received by the leukemia surveillance program concerning cases of leukemia diagnosed from July 1966 through June 1967. During this time, a total of 583 cases were diagnosed in 8 reporting areas participating in the program. These cases are analyzed in comparison with expected incidence and according to their distribution by age, race and sex, type of leukemia, and reporting area.

      Also described in this report are several recent field investigations in which the NCDC has participated. These include studies of 6 leukemia case clusters and one instance of familial leukemia.
