The association between nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) use and mortality after a colorectal cancer (CRC) diagnosis was investigated among women in the California Teachers Study cohort. A total of 621 CRC cases were identified for analysis. Among CRC cases, prediagnosis regular NSAID use and prediagnosis prolonged NSAID duration independently predicted decreased CRC-specific mortality after adjustment for relevant clinical factors.
