INTERPHONE

The INTERPHONE project was a multi-national series of epidemiological studies testing whether using mobile phones increases the risk of various cancers in the head and neck. Data was collected by research teams from 13 countries: Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and the UK. It was coordinated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), an agency of the World Health Organization (WHO).

In May 2010 the INTERPHONE study group published the combined analysis of glioma and meningioma in the International Journal of Epidemiology. The results for acoustic neuroma were published in Cancer Epidemiology in October 2011. The INTERPHONE final report advised that a pooled analysis of the parotid gland data would not be published at this stage.

Further details about the INTERPHONE project and the results are available from the dedicated webpage setup by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).
