Risk and Protective Factors for Midgut Carcinoid Tumours: A Case-Control Study of Prospectively Evaluated Patients
Introduction: The incidence of midgut carcinoid tumours is on the rise, but few studies have investigated risk factors for their occurrence.
Aim(s): We therefore aimed at clarifying risk factors for the occurrence of sporadic midgut carcinoid tumours.
Materials and methods: Multicentre case-control (C-C) study. Patients prospectively evaluated at partecipating centres. Controls with non-neoplastic/non-chronic disorders seen at GI outpatients clinics, matched (4:1) for sex and age
