Abstract

A new statistical parametric model of carcinogenesis is proposed. The focus is on tumor latency times. The model makes use of extreme value theory following the line initially explored by Pike [1] and further developed by Klebanov et al. [2]. In this paper, we make the first attempt to take account of the interdependence between the cells in an initiated tissue developing into a malignant tumor. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd.
