||A review and meta-analysis of formaldehyde exposure and pancreatic cancer
||Mar. 2001, Vol.39, No.3, p.336-345. Illus. 70 ref.
||A meta-analysis of the literature concerning 14 epidemiological studies of workers exposed to formaldehyde has revealed a small increase of pancreatic cancer risk in embalmers, pathologists and anatomists. There may, however, be a diagnostic bias or occupational exposures other than formaldehyde in the mentioned professions. No increased risk was found among industrial workers, even in those with higher formaldehyde exposures than in the medical professions mentioned above.
