Coffee intake and trace element blood concentrations in association with renal cell cancer among smokers
Conclusion: Contrary to our initial hypothesis, this study suggests that heavy coffee consumption may increase the previously identified association between high er circulating lead (Pb) concentrations and increased RCC risk. Improved assessment of exposure, including potential trace element contaminants in coffee, is needed. (Source: Cancer Causes and Control)

Cross sectional association between cytomegalovirus seropositivity, inflammation and cognitive impairment in elderly cancer survivors
ConclusionThe CMV seropositivity and high inflammation was associated with higher cognitive impairment among cancer survivors. The stronger associations seen among cancer survivors diagnosed within the last three years suggest that strategies to reduce CMV activation and inflammation during or immediately after cancer treatment may be important in reducing the prevalence of cognitive impairment/ dementia among cancer survivors.

Estimating the rate of overdiagnosis with prostate cancer screening: evidence from the Finnish component of the European Randomized Study of Screening for Prostate Cancer
ConclusionSome overdiagnosis has occurred, but there is uncertainty about its extent. A long follow-up is required to demonstrate the full impact of screening. We evaluated the overdiagnosis rates at a population level, associated with being offered screening, taking account of contamination (screening among the controls). The overall evaluation of screening should incorporate mortality benefit, cost-effectiveness, and quality of life. (Source: Cancer Causes and Control)

Environmental exposure and clinical correlates of hepatocellular carcinoma in New York City: a case only study
AbstractIn the U.S., Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) incidence rates have increased. We aimed to determine whether environmental exposure plays a role in the high incidence of HCC observed in New York City. We conducted a hospital-based case only study to examine the prevalence of aflatoxin B1 (AFB1)- and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH)-albumin adducts and the distribution of adducts by different characteristics of HCC patients. Blood samples were collected from 155 HCC patients for biomarker analyses.  We observed that about 46% and 49% of cases had detectable AFB1- and PAH-albumin adducts, respectively. There w...
