||Malignant blood diseases are rare pathologies for which occupational causes are probably underestimated.

Uncertainties concerning other agents remain, in particular for ethylene oxide, pesticides, electromagnetic fields and certain infectious agents, for which further epidemiological studies need to be continued.
