Título External radiation exposure and mortality in a cohort of French nuclear workers
Información bibliográfica Oct. 2007, Vol.64, No.10, p.694-700. Illus. 31 ref.
Resumen The objective of this study was to analyse the effect of external radiation exposure on the mortality of French nuclear workers. A cohort of 29,204 workers employed between 1950 and 1994 at the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) or at the General Company of Nuclear Fuel (Areva) was followed up for an average of 17.8 years. Standardized mortality ratios were computed with reference to French mortality rates. Dose-effect relationships were analysed through trend tests and Poisson regression, with linear and log-linear models. A healthy worker effect was observed, the number of deaths in the cohort being 59% of the number expected from national mortality statistics. Among the 21 main cancer sites studied, a statistically significant excess was observed only for skin melanoma, while an excess of borderline statistical significance was observed for multiple myeloma. A dose-effect relationship was observed for leukaemia after exclusion of chronic lymphoid leukaemia. Other findings are discussed.
