Multiple Primary-Standardized Incidence Ratio (MP-SIR) SEER*Stat
Interactive PC-based software module developed to perform multiple primary analyses with the goal of facilitating research into the etiology of second cancers. It calculates standardized incidence ratios by:

  • Second cancer site
  • Histology
  • Treatment
  • Sex
  • Race
  • Calendar year
  • Age and time since diagnosis
  • Registry

Utilizing the NCI Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database, the program allows scientists within and outside of NIH to test hypotheses about the relationships between two cancers on their PCs.
