||Risks of biliary tract cancer and occupational exposures among Shanghai women textile workers: A case-cohort study
||Aug. 2006, Vol.49, p.690-698. 42 ref.
||The associations between occupational exposures to textile dusts and chemicals and biliary tract cancer (BTC) were investigated in a cohort of 267,400 women textile workers in Shanghai, China. A nested case-cohort analysis of 162 BTC cases diagnosed during 1989-1998 was conducted with a reference subcohort of 3,188 workers. Exposures to workplace dusts and chemicals were reconstructed by linking complete work history data with a job-exposure matrix. Hazard ratios (HR) and dose-response trends were estimated by Cox proportional hazards modelling modified for case-cohort design. An elevated risk for employment of one year or more in maintenance jobs (HR 2.92) with a significant trend by duration was observed. Excess risk was also found for more than 20 years exposure to metals (HR 2.50).
