Pigmentary characteristics, sun-sensitivity and risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma
We report on pigmentary characteristics, sun sensitivity and some other possible risk factors for non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) in people 20-74 years of age. A statewide case-control study was conducted in New South Wales, Australia, with population-based sampling of cases (n = 704) and controls (n = 694). Risk of NHL was increased in subjects with hazel eyes (OR = 1.48; 95% CI = 1.07-2.04), very fair skin (OR = 1.44; 95% CI = 1.01-2.07) and poor ability to tan (OR = 1.70; 95% CI = 1.06-2.71)....[Show more]
