Brain tumors in children and adolescents and exposure to animals and farm life: a multicenter case-control study (CEFALO)
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
The etiology of brain tumors in children and adolescents is largely unknown, and very few environmental risk factors have been identified. The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between pre- or postnatal animal contacts or farm exposures and the risk of childhood brain tumors (CBTs), since infectious agents may pose a risk factor and a proposed mechanism is transferral of infectious agents from animals to humans.
