Epidemiology of Leukaemia and Lymphoma contains the proceedings of the Leukaemia Research Fund International Workshop held in Oxford, UK, on September 25-27, 1984. Contributors explore the epidemiology of leukemia and lymphoma based on the results of a pilot study that investigated whether careful subdivision of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) using a standardized panel of monoclonal antibodies would reveal interesting associations between subtypes and particular geographic regions or ethnic groups within regions. This book is comprised of 31 chapters divided into four sections and begins with a discussion on epidemiological approaches to hematological malignancy, paying particular attention to international data collection and interpretation; clusters and associations in cancer epidemiology; and childhood leukemia in Great Britain and the Netherlands. The next section explores the causes of human leukemia and lymphoma as well as the epidemiology of leukemia and lymphoma subtypes in various regions of the world such as Africa, Asia, United States, and Mediterranean region. The final section focuses on practical problems in standardized immunophenotyping of leukemias and lymphomas; immuno-alkaline phosphatase labeling of hematological samples; and detection of surface membrane antigens by a rosette assay using antibody coupled red cells. This monograph will be of value to clinicians and medical practitioners interested in the epidemiology of leukemia and lymphoma.
