||Survey of antimony workers: Mortality 1961-1992
||Nov. 1994, Vol.51, No.11, p.772-776. 7 ref.
||The mortality of a census population and a prospective cohort of men employed at an antimony smelter in the north-east of England was followed up from 1961-1992. An increased risk of lung cancer existed in the workers employed before 1961, but it was not possible to attribute this excess to any particular agent. Mortality analyzed by five-year calendar periods of first exposure show a lessening of effect after 1955. Although the power of the study is clearly less for more recent periods of exposure, the absence of any excess in the population after 1960 is encouraging.
