Título Multiple myeloma in World Trade Center responders: A case series
Información bibliográfica Aug. 2009, Vol.51, No.8, p.896-902. 31 ref.
Resumen This article reports on cases of multiple myeloma (MM) observed in World Trade Center (WTC) responders registered in the WTC Medical Programme. Among 28,252 responders, eight cases of MM were observed between 11 September 2001 and 10 September 2007 (6.8 expected). Four of these cases were observed in responders younger than 45 years at the time of diagnosis (1.2 expected). A slight deficit of MM cases was observed in responders older than 45 years (4 observed, 5.6 expected). The unusual number of MM cases in WTC responders under 45 years underscores the importance of maintaining the surveillance programme for cancer and other emerging diseases in this population.
