Chaperon Newsletter No. 04/2022

Dear Chaperon subscribers,

we have new information for you from the Chaperon project!

Long-term incidence in hepatocellular carcinoma and intrahepatic bile duct cancer in Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden, the role of Thorotrast?

We analyzed long-term incidence trends in liver cancer (including hepatocellular carcinoma and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma) to interpret the changes in terms of known risk factors and hypothesize that historical exposure to Thorotrast, a radiographic contrast medium emitting alpha particle, has changed population rates. A detailed overview has been recently published in an article co-authored by our ERA Chair holder, prof. Hemminki.
