||Case-referent study on occupational risk factors for bladder cancer in southern Israel
||Aug. 1999, Vol.72, No.5, p.304-308. 29 ref.
||To evaluate the possible association between occupational exposure and male bladder cancer in the Negev region of southern Israel, 92 bladder cancer patients were studied by interview and compared with 92 males without oncological disease after matching by age and country of origin. The questionnaire was developed to gather information on demography, life-time occupational history, smoking habits, coffee consumption and health status, and the analysis of the data was performed by statistical methods. Significant associations were found between bladder cancer occurrence and occupational exposure to solvents, dusts and multiple chemicals; nephrolithiasis; and cigarette smoking. Certain types of occupational exposure, other than aromatic amines and dyes, may be considered as contributing factors in the epidemiology of bladder cancer.
