||Occupation and risk of pancreatic cancer: A population-based case-control study in Iowa
||Apr. 2005, Vol.47, No.4, p.392-398. 48 ref.
||Previous epidemiological studies have inconsistently linked various occupations and industries to pancreatic cancer risk. This study analysed data from a population-based case-control study conducted in Iowa involving 376 pancreatic cancer cases and 2434 control subjects. A significantly increased risk was observed among men who worked in the following industries: chemical and allied products; transportation; elementary and secondary schools. Increased risks also were observed in men who were employed as truck drivers, railroad signal and switch operators; purchasing agents and buyers; teachers; insurance agents; and retail supervisors. Among women, a significantly increased risk of pancreatic cancer was found for persons employed in furniture and home furnishing stores, and a borderline increased risk among textile sewing machine operators.
