||A case-control study of the relationships among silica exposure, gastric cancer, and esophageal cancer
||Jan. 2001, Vol.39, No.1, p.52-57. 24 ref.
||The effect of silica exposure on gastric and oesophageal cancer mortality was investigated in a case-control study restricted to male subjects drawn from death certificates in the Tobi area of Japan. The control group was selected from a series of deaths due to colon cancer, and cancers of other organs. Mantel-Haenszel odds ratios (OR) were estimated after adjustment for age and smoking habits. For gastric cancer, adjusted ORs were 1.22 for brick and quarry work, and 1.36 among silicosis patients. For oesophageal cancer, adjusted ORs were 1.53 for the brick and quarry work, and 2.33 among silicosis patients. The results suggest that gastric and oesophageal cancer were related to silica exposure and silicosis in the study area.
