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.

Brain tumours are the second most common malignancy during childhood. Although childhood brain tumours are, fortunately, still a rare disease, the incidence has been slightly increasing over the past few years.

The MOBI-KIDS study aims to gain important insights into potential environmental risk factors that might increase the risk of brain tumours in young people (aged 10 to 24 years).
