Approches géographiques des variations spatio-temporelles des cas de Lymphomes Non-Hodgkiniens en basse vallée du Rhône

Abstract : In France, about 400 000 new cancer cases are diagnosed each year. The fight against cancer is shown as a public health priority. The long-time latency and multi-factorial nature of these diseases make their etiology more difficult to understand, although high stakes exist as 40% of cancers could be prevented. The epidemiological surveillance of cancers is crucial, despite the fact that the current system of epidemiological surveillance, based on cancer registry set-up at a departmental level (except some national registries) seems to be incomplete as a result of partial coverage of the cancer registries. The Rhône lower valley is, for example, not covered by any registry of cancers in adults. However, the pilot experiment of systematic census of new hematologic malignancy cases, initiated in 2008 by the head of the department of Clinical Hematology and Medical Oncology at the Henri Duffaut Hospital in Avignon (Vaucluse, France) allowed for the creation of an alternative database with spatial and temporal indications. Using this file, this research, which provide a geographical approach, focuses on risks of carcinogen exposures linked with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL), in the Rhône lower valley. More specifically, it looks at the circumstances in which theses exposures may have taken or are currently taking place. The main hypothesis is that those circumstances are linked with both patients’ individual trajectories (professional, residential, other) and the trajectories of territories (e.g. land occupation changes).
