  1. Birth characteristics, sibling patterns, and acute leukemia risk in childhood : a population-based cohort study.

    Article - En anglais

    Background 

    The occurrence of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML) during childhood may be influenced by factors operating in fetal life.

    Furthermore, childhood ALL has been suggested to be linked to patterns of infection during infancy.

    Purpose 

    To explore these hypotheses and other associations, we studied the impact of sibling patterns (e.g., birth order) and birth characteristics (e.g., birth weight) on the risk of childhood ALL and AML.

    Methods 

    By linkage of records of population-based registries, a cohort of all children whose mothers were born in Denmark from April 1935 through March 1978 was established.

    Children who developed ALL or AML during the period from April 1968 through December 1992 were identified by linkage with the Danish Cancer Registry.

    Birth weights were obtained for children born during the period from January 1973 through December 1992 by linkage with the Medical Birth Registry.

    Results 

    The cohort of approximately 2.0 million children was followed for the diagnosis of ALL or AML for 20.9 million person-years.

    A total of 704 cases of childhood ALL were identified.

    Among 0-4 year olds, the relative risks (RRs) of ALL for birth order positions 1,2,3, and 4+were 1.00 (reference), 0.85 (95% confidence interval [CI]=0.68-1.07), 0.91 (95% CI=0.66-1.25), and 0.57 (95% CI=0.30-1.06), respectively (P for trend=09).

    A decreasing trend was not observed among 5-14 year olds. (...)
