While a number of epidemiological studies of childhood acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) have been conducted, separate analysis of risk factors for ALL subtypes has generally not been possible.
We report the results of an analysis of data obtained from parents of children with ALL (and a control group of children without cancer), linked to a clinical database.
Cases were classified into four ALL subtypes, and odds ratios (OR) were determined for each subtype for a broad range of factors.
Numerous significant associations were found, some across all subtypes and others that were subtype-specific.
