An expert panel involved in extensive studies of a childhood leukemia cluster in this rural northern Nevada town presents a final report Monday -- and no conclusive answers are expected.
The studies have been the most intensive ever conducted into a cancer cluster. Hundreds of experts from at least seven state and federal agencies were involved, spending millions of dollars.
Dr. Randall Todd, Nevada state epidemiologist, says that if the panel finds there is something else to study it will go on -- but "there won't be any new findings announced."
"For those interested in talking to people who were actually involved with setting up the investigation, (they can) see if they think it was appropriately conducted," Todd said.
