Preliminary questions [36788]

36789

there is some evidence that cumulative exposure to benzene may be a factor in the development of the condition under consideration.

36790the veteran has established the causal connection between cumulative exposure to benzene and VEA service for the clinical onset of acute myeloid leukaemia.

36791the veteran has established the causal connection between cumulative exposure to benzene and operational service for the clinical onset of acute myeloid leukaemia.

or

36792the veteran has established the causal connection between cumulative exposure to benzene and eligible service for the clinical onset of acute myeloid leukaemia.

Clinical onset and operational service [36791]

36793 the veteran has received greater than 20 ppm-years of cumulative exposure to benzene before the clinical onset of the condition under consideration.

36797

where the veteran received greater than 20 ppm-years of cumulative exposure to benzene before the clinical onset of the condition under consideration, the first exposure occurred more than five years before the clinical onset of the condition under consideration.

37028

operational service made a material contribution to the veteran receiving greater than 20 ppm-years of cumulative exposure to benzene before the clinical onset of the condition under consideration, where the first exposure occurred more than five years before the clinical onset of the condition under consideration.

Clinical onset and eligible service [36792]

36794

the veteran has received greater than 40 ppm-years of cumulative exposure to benzene before the clinical onset of the condition under consideration where the clinical onset occurred within thirty years of that exposure.

36798

where the veteran received greater than 40 ppm-years of cumulative exposure to benzene before the clinical onset of the condition under consideration and the clinical onset occurred within thirty years of that exposure, the first exposure occurred more than ten years before the clinical onset of the condition under consideration.

37029

eligible service made a material contribution to the veteran receiving greater than 40 ppm-years of cumulative exposure to benzene before the clinical onset of the condition under consideration where the clinical onset occurred within thirty years of that exposure and where the first exposure occurred more than ten years before the clinical onset of the condition under consideration.
