||Occupational exposure to hydrocarbons and chronic pancreatitis - A case-referent study
||Sep. 1994, Vol.51, No.9, p.631-637. Illus. 17 ref.
||The aim of the study was to investigate the hypothesis that hydrocarbon exposure is a risk factor for chronic pancreatitis. 102 cases of chronic pancreatitis and 204 age- and sex-matched referents were interviewed about their occupational histories, alcohol and cigarette consumption, and diet. Results support the original hypothesis but further studies are necessary to identify responsible hydrocarbons.
