Kidney cancer is the fifth most common cancer in the UK and the second most common cancer in incidence, accounting for about 12 per cent of all diagnosed malignancies. Much less is known about the epidemiology of renal cell cancer in Pakistan. A better understanding of the risk factors, such as environmental exposures, that are linked to cancer risk is essential to guide prevention efforts.
This thesis reports on the research work of a PhD student at the University of Oxford. An extensive literature review was conducted to suggest lines of enquiry for the PhD student. The primary goal of this research was to try and identify a feasible range of strategies for the monitoring of aluminium concentrations in rivers and lakes with the use of turbidity in combination with ion concentration as a proxy for total dissolved Al. The first strategy looked at the use of the First Order Chromatography to simultaneously determine nickel, aluminium, iron and manganese in water samples. However, this technique was found to be unsuitable for Al determination.
Extractable phosphorus fractions were tested for their use as a screening tool for detecting risk of eutrophication and impairment of the ecosystem services of aquatic ecosystems. The test was conducted by analysing the total phosphorous (TP) concentration in samples, adjusting for total suspended solids. The results show that the TFP concentration is able to predict TP in a way that is comparable with the conventional method. The TFP concentration could be used as a cost-effective early warning indicator of phosphorus loading and impairment of ecosystem services in aquatic ecosystems. This analysis was supported by a meta-analysis of an earlier literature review. d2c66b5586
