Título Dust and chemical exposures, and miscarriage risk among women textile workers in Shanghai, China
Información bibliográfica Mar. 2009, Vol.66, No.3, p.161-168. 38 ref.
Resumen A retrospective cohort study of miscarriages among 1752 women in the Shanghai textile industry was conducted. Reproductive history was self-reported by women and occupational work histories were collected from factory personnel records. Occupational exposures were evaluated by linking work history to an industry-specific job-exposure matrix. Odds ratios (OR) were estimated by multivariate logistic regression, with adjustment for age at pregnancy, educational level, smoking status of the woman and her spouse, use of alcohol, and woman's year of birth. An elevation in risk of a spontaneously aborted first pregnancy was associated with exposure to synthetic fibres (OR 1.89) and mixed synthetic and natural fibres (OR 3.31). No increased risks were observed for women working with solvents, nor were significant associations observed with quantitative cotton dust or endotoxin exposures.
