Título original Studio caso controllo sui tumori nasali e le esposizioni professionali [en italiano]
Información bibliográfica July-Aug. 1988, Vol.79, No.4, p.280-287. 31 ref.
Resumen A case-control study of malignant epithelial neoplasms of the nose and sinuses and occupational exposures was conducted in Milan, Italy. Cases were patients admitted in the years 1982-85 at the Head and Neck Oncology Department of the National Institute for the Study and Treatment of Cancer. Controls were subjects admitted in the same years, with diagnoses of malignant tumour of the nasopharynx, thyroid and salivary glands. The occupational history was derived from hospital records. The study included 53 cases and 217 controls. Three cases but not controls had worked in the leather industry; the same finding was observed for the wood industry. A significant increase in risk appeared to be associated to work in other sectors, namely the metal industry (RR: 4.5%; 95% confidence interval: 1.4-14.2), the mining and construction industry (RR: 5.3; 1.9-15.0), the textile industry (RR: 2.9; 1.0-8.6), and agriculture (RR: 3.3; 1.3-8.3).
