Resumen A retrospective cohort study of 12,212 rubber workers was updated and reanalysed. Increased mortality due to ischaemic heart disease and an increased incidence of lung cancer was observed in the period >40 years after initial employment. The risk of ischaemic heart disease was positively correlated with the duration of exposure. There was a non-significant increase of mortality due to obstructive lung disease. An increased frequency of bladder cancer was observed in individuals working in the mixing and weighting department, exposed for at least 5 years and employed before 1951. The results of mutagenicity investigations and these epidemiological findings indicate that a further reduction in exposure is warranted.
