dc.description.abstractWe performed a case control study on the use of cellular and cordless telephones and the risk for brain tumors diagnosed during 2000 2003 We report the results for malignant brain tumors with data from 317 cases 88 and 692 controls 84 The use of analog cellular phones yielded odds ratio OR of 2 6 and a 95 confidence interval CI of 1 5 4 3 increasing to OR 3 5 and 95 CI 2 0 6 4 with a 10 year latency period Regarding digital cellular telephones the corresponding results were OR 1 9 95 CI 1 3 2 7 and OR 3 6 95 CI 1 7 7 5 respectively Cordless telephones yielded OR 2 1 95 CI 1 4 3 0 and with a 10 year latency period OR 2 9 95 CI 1 6 5 2 The OR increased with the cumulative number of hours of use and was highest for high grade astrocytoma A somewhat increased risk was also found for low grade astrocytoma and other types of malignant brain tumors although not significantly so In multivariate analysis all three phone types studied showed an increased risk
