Environmental exposures and lymphoid neoplasms

Objective

Lymphoid neoplasms are the fifth most frequent neoplasm in the European Union and their incidence is steadily increasing. They therefore represent a considerable and increasing health burden. The proposed study will recruit over 3500 cases of lymphoid neoplasms and a group of comparable controls in 8 centres of the European Union. This study will test specific hypotheses concerning whether changes in our physical, occupational and human environment are related to the incidence of lymphoid neoplasm's. These include sunlight exposure, pesticides, solvents and previous medical history. It will conduct a more detailed assessment of environmental exposures than previously achieved. It will also provide accurate information on subtypes of lymphoid neoplasm's allowing for an effective analysis of risk by diagnostic categories.
