Abstract

The procedures that have been adopted in the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal and Ovarian (PLCO) Cancer Screening Trial are described. These procedures have been designed to ensure unbiased decisions on the underlying cause of death for all confirmed or suspected PLCO cancers. A death review committee with a nonvoting chair and three experienced reviewers as members has been appointed. After an initial pilot study, the procedures have been instituted and are working well.
