Título Prostatic cancer and chronic respiratory and renal disease in British cadmium workers: a case control study
Información bibliográfica Aug. 1985, Vol.42, No.8, p.540-545. 12 ref.
Resumen This case-control study examined the possible association between certain diseases and intensity and duration of exposure to cadmium. The only clearly statistically significant association was between deaths due to bronchitis or emphysema and exposure to high levels of cadmium fume. There was suggestive evidence at the p=0.10 level of an increased risk of death from nephritis or nephrosis after high exposure. Marginally increased (but not statistically significant) risks were noted for death from prostatic cancer after high or medium exposure to cadmium.
