Título Colon and stomach cancer mortality among automotive wood model makers
Información bibliográfica Aug. 1992, Vol.34, No.8, p.759-768 (editorial: p.769-770). 38 + 4 ref.
Resumen To explore the excess risks for colon and other cancers among automotive wood model makers, a retrospective cohort mortality study was conducted, with follow-up from 1940 through 1984. White male wood model makers (n=2,294) employed at any time until 1980 by US automobile manufacturers were studied. Using US mortality rates for comparison, elevated standardised mortality ratios of 1.2 (95% confidence interval (CI), 0.8-1.9) for colon cancer and 1.6 (95% CI, 0.9-2.6) for stomach cancer were found. Nested case-control studies were also conducted for 20 colon and 17 stomach cancer cases and 543 age-matched controls. No trend was found of increased risk for colon or stomach cancer mortality with increased exposure to wood dust or to duration employed in wood model making. A two-page editorial on the same subject follows the article.
