  1. Seasonality in the diagnosis of acute lymphocytic leukaemia.

    Article - En anglais

    Literature on seasonality of leukaemia shows conflicting results.

    We analysed the month of diagnosis of acute leukaemia in East Anglia, UK, for the period 1971-94, which showed a significant 40% summer excess (P<0.001) for acute lymphocytic leukaemia both in children (P<0.01) and adults (P=0.01).

    Methodology, results and possible aetiological interpretations are presented.
