The relationship between aspirin use and colorectal cancer risk was examined by a case-control study in Italy. Regular aspirin use was reported by only 47 (3.5%) cases and 77 (4.1%) control subjects, giving a multivariate odds ratio (OR) of 0.7 (95% Cl 0.5-1.0) after allowance for education, physical exercise and selected dietary factors.
