Título Occupational risks of sinonasal cancer in Denmark
Información bibliográfica May 1988, Vol.45, No.5, p.329-335. 38 ref.
Resumen A new comprehensive data linkage system for the detailed investigation of occupational cancer, established in the Danish Cancer Registry, provides employment histories back to 1964. All 382 cases of cancers of the sinonasal cavaties diagnosed between 1970-84 were analysed to screen for high risk industrial areas in Denmark. Excess risks were confirmed among men and women employed in the manufacture of footwear and other leather products and of wooden furniture. Excess risks were also seen among men in all areas of the basic metal industries and in industries producing metal containers. Most unexpected were raised risks among employees of both sexes in making cocoa, chocolate, and sugar confectionery; these, in combination with the observed risks among female employees in canning and preserving fruits and vegetables and in farming may point to a common aetiology. The new associations discovered in this study must therefore await further confirmation.
