Allergy and brain tumours in the INTERPHONE study

Wednesday, 27 February 2013 00:00
Analyses of data on brain cancer risk from five countries lead by CREAL examined whether a history of allergy is associated with the risk of brain tumours. The study included over 2,000 brain tumour cases and over 2,500 control subjects. The analyses found significant inverse associations between a history of allergy and risk of glioma, meningioma, and acoustic neuroma. While allergy history may influence brain tumour risk, further research addressing potential sources of bias is needed.
