||Occupation and chronic bronchitis among Chinese women
||Jan. 2008, Vol.50, No.1, p.64-71. 43 ref.
||The objective of this study was to examine the association between occupation and chronic bronchitis among a cross section of Chinese women who participated in the Shanghai Women's Health Study. Cases were 4873 women with self-reported physician-diagnosed bronchitis during adulthood. Controls were 9746 women randomly selected from Shanghai Women's Health Study participants, matched with the cases by year of birth and age at diagnosis. Lifetime occupational histories were obtained. Logistic regressions were used to evaluate the association between chronic bronchitis and occupation, adjusting for smoking, education, family income and concurrent asthma. Excess prevalences of bronchitis were found for textile occupation (odds ratio OR 1.09) and industry (OR 1.11), welders (OR 1.40), packing and baling workers (OR 1.39) and warehousing (OR 1.58). Other findings are discussed.
