5108.0 Cancer Epidemiology Session 2

Wednesday, November 7, 2007: 12:30 PM
This session will focus on the risk factors for cancer including childhood brain tumors and prostate, urinary bladder, liver and renal cell cancers. The contributions of paternal exposures, diet, smoking, genetics and body composition will be discussed.
Session Objectives: At the conclusion of the session, the participant (learner) in this session will be able to: 1) Identify paternal exposures that can increase the risk of brain tumors in offspring; 2) Describe prostate cancer risk factors; 3) Describe the disease and patient characteristics of urinary bladder cancer in a developing country; 4) Evaluate the use of global DNA methylation as an epigenetic biomarker for liver cancer research; and 5) Describe the association between body composition and renal cell cancer and its variation across demographic groups.
