Título Analysis of mortality from nephritis and nephrosis among nickel-cadmium battery workers
Información bibliográfica Aug. 1983, Vol.25, No.8, p.609-612. 10 ref.
Resumen 3025 workers were studied. Observed deaths from nephritis and nephrosis and all (non-cancer) diseases of the genito-urinary system were not significantly different from those of the general population of England and Wales. No significant association between cadmium exposure and mortality emerged from a comparison between exposures of those who had died from these causes and of survivors. Separate analysis of 39 workers with cadmium nephropathy (proteinuria) showed a just-significant difference in obsered and expected deaths for all cancers, and a mortality for non-cancers close to expectation.
