Título High risk occupations for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in New Zealand: Case-control study
Información bibliográfica May 2008, Vol.65, No.5, p.354-363. 45 ref.
Resumen Previous studies into occupational risk factors for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) in New Zealand have indicated that farmers and meat workers are at increased risk for these neoplasms. A nationwide case-control study was conducted to assess whether previously observed associations persist and to identify other occupations that may contribute to the risk of NHL in the New Zealand population. A total of 291 incident cases of NHL notified to the New Zealand Cancer Registry during 2003 and 2004, and 471 population controls, were interviewed. The questionnaire collected demographic information and a full occupational history. The relative risk for NHL associated with ever being employed in particular occupations and industries was calculated by statistical methods, The study confirmed that crop farmers and meat workers remain high risk occupations for NHL in New Zealand, and has identified several other occupations and industries of high NHL risk that merit further study.
