Title Occupational exposure and malignant lymphoma
Bibliographic information 1996, Vol.9, No.4, p.309-321. 119 ref.
Abstract Review of epidemiologic studies concerning the association between malignant lymphoma and exposures in a number of occupations: woodworking; farming and pesticide use; welding and related occupations; meat workers and veterinarians; and occupations involving exposure to solvents, wood preservatives, hairdyes, and rubber chemicals. The studies indicate that occupational factors, especially exposure to solvents, phenoxy herbicides and wood, play a role in the epidemiology of malignant lymphoma.
