New Fallon Leukemia Study Funded

The Arkansas Children's Hospital Research Institute will use the
funding to evaluate whether certain factors -- including genetics,
the environment and diet -- may have played a role in the cancer
cluster.
Sixteen Fallon children have been diagnosed with leukemia since
2000.
The cause of the cluster is unknown despite exhaustive studies,
including one by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Researchers with the Little Rock-based institute plan to build
on the results of the C-D-C study, which identified several
contaminants in the Fallon area.
The CDC concluded there was no single exposure that caused the
leukemia in the town's children.
