DCEG researchers conduct studies on tumors of the brain and central nervous system, which can be benign (not cancer) or malignant (cancer). Selected studies include:
A follow-up study of glioma risk factors and cancer aggregation in families of glioma cases
An international cohort-based genome-wide association study of glioma
DCEG studies of genetic susceptibility and brain tumors
A multi-center U.S. case-control study of benign and malignant brain tumors
A study estimating radiation doses to the brain of pediatric patients undergoing neuro-radiologic procedures
Studies of radiofrequency energy from cellular telephones and brain tumors
A case-control study of the association of occupational exposure to electromagnetic fields and adult brain tumors
A study of to assess potential relationship between glioma and allergy/atopy and diabetes in 4.5 million male U.S. veterans.
This study is designed to improve our understanding of radiation-related risk for intracranial tumors of the brain and nervous system through a pooled analysis of studies.
A study in Denmark of height and body mass index in childhood as they relate to adulthood risk of glioma.
