PURPOSE To define the magnitude of second cancer risk among pediatric Hodgkin's disease survivors and to determine which factors influence this risk. PATIENTS AND METHODS At Stanford,694 children and teenagers were monitored for 1 to 31.6 years (mean, 13.1) after treatment for Hodgkin's disease.

The aim of this study was to evaluate if HR-HPV typing and HPV16, 18, 31, and 33 quantitation are predictive for type-specific infection persistence and/or the development of CIN in women under 30 with normal cervical cytology.

With the introduction of the penalty points system (PPS) has come many media reports indicating a reduction in road traffic accident (RTA) rates.

To study this we examined the numbers of RTA related femoral shaft fracture presentations to the six Dublin teaching(More)
