||Lung cancer mortality in a site producing hard metals
||Aug. 2000, Vol.57, No.8, p.568-573. 15 ref.
||The mortality from lung cancer from exposures to hard metal dust was examined in a historical cohort of all subjects who had worked for at least 3 months on an industrial site producing hard metals and followed up from January 1968 to December 1992. Mortality from lung cancer was significantly increased among men and was higher than expected in hard metal production before sintering, whereas after sintering it was lower. The excess mortality from lung cancer occurred in subjects exposed to unsintered hard metal dust and could not be attributed to smoking.
