||Workers exposed to dimethylformamide (DMF) and/or acrylonitrile (ACN) were observed from 1950 through 1982 for mortality. The wage-roll workers exposed to DMF showed significant excess in total deaths attributable mainly to ischemic heart disease and external causes when compared with rates from E.I. Du Pont de Nemours & Co. However, there were no significant excesses in mortality when expected numbers were based on US or local statistics. No dose-response relationship were observed between DMF or ACN exposure and mortality. The significant excesses in mortality among employees exposed to DMF and/or ACN could be due to statistical chance or life-style factors.
