Cellular-telephone use and brain tumors.
Data do not support the hypothesis that the recent use of hand-held cellular telephones causes brain tumors, but they are not sufficient to evaluate the risks among long-term, heavy users and for potentially long induction periods. Expand
DNA repair gene polymorphisms and risk of adult meningioma, glioma, and acoustic neuroma.
The results suggest that common DNA repair variants may affect the risk of adult brain tumors, especially meningioma. Expand
New primary neoplasms of the central nervous system in survivors of childhood cancer: a report from the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study.
Exposure to radiation therapy is the most important risk factor for the development of a new CNS tumor in survivors of childhood cancers and the higher risk of subsequent glioma in children irradiated at a very young age may reflect greater susceptibility of the developing brain to radiation. Expand
History of allergies and autoimmune diseases and risk of brain tumors in adults
Evidence is added that persons with allergies or autoimmune diseases are at reduced risk of glioma, and the basis of the associations is not clear, but they might imply a role of immunologic factors in the development of brain tumors. Expand
Reproductive and hormonal factors and risk of brain tumors in adult females
The findings suggest that hormonal exposures early in life may be associated with risk of glioma, but the evidence is inconsistent and does not point clearly to a specific causal or protective hypothesis. Expand
Obesity in adult survivors of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia: a report from the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study.
Cranial radiotherapy >or= 20 Gy is associated with an increased prevalence of obesity, especially in females treated at a young age, and it is imperative that healthcare professionals recognize this risk and develop strategies to enhance weight control and encourage longitudinal follow-up. Expand
Associations between Polymorphisms in DNA Repair Genes and Glioblastoma
It is suggested that common variation in DNA repair genes may be associated with risk for glioblastoma multiforme. Expand
Second neoplasms in survivors of childhood cancer: findings from the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study cohort.
PURPOSE To review the reports of subsequent neoplasms (SNs) in the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS) cohort that were made through January 1, 2006, and published before July 31, 2008, and toExpand
Cancer survivorship--genetic susceptibility and second primary cancers: research strategies and recommendations.
Development of a national research infrastructure for studies of cancer survivorship, development of new technology, bioinformatics, and biomarkers, and design of new epidemiologic methods are reviewed. Expand
Detectable clonal mosaicism and its relationship to aging and cancer
Large chromosomal abnormalities in a subset of clones in DNA obtained from blood or buccal samples underscore the time-dependent nature of somatic events in the etiology of cancer and potentially other late-onset diseases. Expand
