Título Occupation and cancer of the lower urinary tract in Detroit
Información bibliográfica Feb. 1883, Vol.70, No.2, p.237-245. 35 ref.
Resumen Report of an analysis of the relation between occupation and cancer in Detroit, USA, by means of a population-based case-control study conducted as part of the US National Bladder Cancer Study. 303 patients with transitional or squamous-cell carcinoma of the lower urinary tract and 296 controls were interviewed to obtain lifetime occupational histories. Truck drivers had a significant excess risk of lower urinary tract cancer but whether their increased risk was due to diesel fume exposure could not be evaluated. Non-significant excess risks were also seen for tool and die makers. Employment in motor vehicle manufacturing was not associated with a significant excess risk of lower urinary tract cancer.
