Kan P, Simonsen SE, Lyon JL, Kestle JRW (2007):

The authors reviewed 10 case-control studies published between 2000 and 2006 that evaluated the association between cell phone use and brain tumours. They excluded one because there were insufficient data to calculate the crude Odds ratio (OR).

The 9 studies included a total of 5,259 cases of primary brain tumours and 12,074 controls. There was an overall OR of 0.90 (95% CI 0.81-0.99) for cell phone use and brain tumour development. The pooled OR for cell phone users of ≥ 10 years (5 studies) was 1.25 (95% CI 1.01-1.54).

It should be noted that at the time of publication of this analysis the summary of the results from the INTERPHONE study had still to be published.
