||Occupation and malignant lymphoma: A population based case control study in Germany
||Jan. 2006, Vol.63, No.1, p.17-26. 94 ref.
||The aim of this study was to identify occupations suspected to be associated with malignant lymphoma. A total of 710 patients with malignant lymphoma aged 18-80 years were recruited in six study regions in Germany. For each case, a sex, region, and age matched control was drawn from the population registers. Odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals for major occupations and industries were calculated using conditional logistic regression analysis, adjusted for smoking and alcohol consumption. Patients with specific lymphoma subentities were additionally compared with the entire control group using unconditional logistic regression analysis. Findings are discussed and industries positively associated with lymphoma are identified. The following economic and industrial sectors were positively associated with lymphoma: food products, beverages, tobacco; paper products, publishing and printing; and metals.
