Epidemiological Studies

Epidemiologic studies of BL are designed to provide insights about who is at risk of BL, where they live, when they get BL, how they present clinically, and why they are at increased risk of BL. These epidemiologic studies are conducted in population-based datasets to generate hypotheses that can be evaluated in hypothesis driven studies. In rare instances, we conduct studies focused on measuring the burden and distribution of key risk factors of endemic Burkitt Lymphoma (eBL), such as the prevalence, burden and intensity of malaria in eBL endemic regions.
