||Work in dry cleaning and the incidence of cancer of the oral cavity, larynx and oesophagus
||Sep. 1997, Vol.54, No.9, p.692-695. 20 ref.
||In two population-based control studies, slight increases in risk were found for oesophageal, laryngeal and tongue cancer among dry cleaning workers potentially exposed to tetrachloroethylene. While these findings could be explained by chance, they are consistent with previous reports. It is suggested that previous studies of dry cleaners that did not control for alcohol and cigarette use may have underestimated the relative risks of such cancers. Topics: alcoholism; cancer; tetrachloroethylene; case-control study; dry cleaning; laryngeal cancer; oesophageal carcinoma; oral cancer; smoking; tongue diseases.
