Occupational risk factors for NHL and NHL subtypes: an InterLymph-based analysis

The aims of this project are:

  1. To conduct a pooled analysis of 9 NHL case-control studies from North America, Europe, and Australia, to study the association between occupational risk factors and NHL, in different populations
  2. To investigate occupational risk factors previously found to be associated with NHL, using uniformly defined indicators for occupational exposure
  3. To evaluate risk by NHL subtype, using a standard NHL classification based upon histologically confirmed diagnoses.
