National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIH)
To establish the feasibility of conducting a full epidemiologic study of the genetic and environmental epidemiology (specifically biomass smoke) in Guatemala, a largely understudied population, we propose to conduct an initial pilot study of 50 subjects with leukemia and 50 controles. Develop and administer a survey instrument on biomass fules and collect diagnostic bone marrow and remission peripheral blood and saliva.
