Mycotoxin control in low- and middle-income countries

Edited by Christopher P. Wild, J. David Miller, and John D. Groopman

IARC Working Group Reports; 9

This book provides an evaluation of measures to reduce exposure to highly toxic and carcinogenic contaminants in staple diets in Africa as well as parts of Asia and Latin America. The International Agency for Research on Cancer convened a Working Group of world-leading experts to review the health effects of aflatoxins and fumonisins and to evaluate intervention measures. The panel concluded that these mycotoxins not only are a cause of acute poisoning and cancer but also are a likely contributor to the high levels of stunting in children in affected populations. The Working Group also identified effective measures to reduce exposure in developing countries.

Vitamin D and Cancer

IARC Working Group Reports; 5

IARC has established a Working Group (WG) of international experts to investigate whether or not a causal relationship exists between vitamin D status and cancer risk. The WG has systematically reviewed the epidemiological literature on vitamin D and cancer and has performed a meta?analysis on observational studies of serum 25?hydroxyvitamin D levels (the best available biomarker of an individual’s vitamin D status) and the risk of colorectal, breast and prostate cancers and of colorectal adenomas.

IARC Code of Good Scientific Practice

IARC Working Group Reports; 4

An IARC Working Group was established to develop a Code of Good Practice for IARC Research Studies. Issues to be addressed include study design, ethics approval, informed consent, study conduct, avoidance of errors (accidental or deliberate), data audit, peer review and publication.

An initial draft Code of Good Scientific Practice was developed and then this was used in the field for one year. After this year, comments received about the Code of Good Scientific Practice were considered by the Working Group and the resultant final version is available here.
