Conclusions: Isolated distal DVT cases made up only a small percentage of all diagnosed incident CAT events for all cancer types analyzed, with the 2-year cumulative incidence ranging from 0.5% - 2.0% for stage 4 patients. Subsequent rVTE events in these patients were principally PE or p-DVT (73%). D-DVT was not a significant predictor of rVTE. A diagnosis of incident d-DVT was strongly associated with worse survival, and for most cancers, survival was similar among patients with an incident p-DVT or PE.DisclosuresNo relevant conflicts of interest to declare.

This report exposes the value of SNIIRAM/SNDS enrichment by external databases, and the linkage issues. It is illustrated by examples: the well-known population-based cohort CONSTANCES created to answer to epidemiological research questions with a specific interest on occupational and social factors, chronic diseases, and aging; the CANARI study, a regional-based study that collected Gleason score in all pathology laboratories in Brittany and then, linked pathology results to an ad hoc extraction from SNIIRAM database; the goal was to investigate the risk of high grade prostate cancer in patients treated by 5-alpha-reducta...

(Funda ç ã o de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de S ã o Paulo) Experiments with rats show that intrauterine protein restriction induces sex hormone imbalance, which appears to favor development of cancer in old age. The rate of prostate tumor development reached 50 percent among the old rats submitted to low-protein diet during pregnancy and lactation alike.

Flight attendants are exposed to a number of known cancer-causing risks, but few studies have rigorously quantified that risk, and researchers say they are an understudied occupational group. The Harvard Flight Attendant Health Study (FAHS), begun in 2007, addresses some of the gaps in understanding health risks among flight attendants. In the latest report, published in the journal Environmental Health, researchers found that flight attendants had higher rates of many cancers, including breast cancer and melanoma, compared to the general population. The FAHS included more than 5,300 flight attendants who were recruited th...
