  • Objective: Studies have suggested an association between maternal hair dye use and elevated risk of childhood cancer, including neuroblastoma. [...] Key MethodMethods: Cases were children with neuroblastoma diagnosed between 1992 and 1994 at hospitals in the United States and Canada participating in the Children’s Cancer Group or the Pediatric Oncology Group. Random-digit dialing was used to identify one matched control for each case.Expand Abstract
