Childhood Cancer and Maternal Anemia Case Control Population in Denmark

Author(s): Francesco Sarsam

Pregnancy-related maternal health is linked to the risk of childhood cancer. Pregnancy anaemia is a frequent illness, especially in developing nations, although there may be a link between maternal anaemia and relatively little research has been done on childhood cancer. Methods: In a population-based study in Denmark, we looked at the relationship. Danish Cancer Registry cases were used, and national records were used to choose controls. The National Patient and Medical Births registries provided us with maternal anaemia diagnosis. Using information from the National Prescription Register, we looked at cancer risks among women who were taken vitamin supplements in a separate study during the years that were available. Using conditional logistic regression, we calculated the risks of childhood cancer. Results The risks of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) and neuroblastoma.
