Título Identification of occupational cancer risk in British Columbia: A population-based case-control study of 2,998 lung cancers by histopathological subtype
Información bibliográfica Mar. 2009, Vol.52, No.3, p.221-232. 47 ref.
Resumen The objective of this case-control study was to evaluate the relationship between lung cancer and sector of activity by histopathological subtype. Cases consisted of male 2998 subjects diagnosed between 1983 and 1990, identified through the British Columbia Cancer Registry. Controls consisted of 10,223 age-matched males selected among the general population. Data were subjected to conditional logistic regression analyses after adjustment for potentially important confounding factors. For all lung cancers, an excess risk was observed for workers in the primary metal, mining, machining, transport, utility and protective services. Associations with histopathological subtypes included an increased risk of squamous cell carcinoma in construction trades, adenocarcinoma for professional workers in medicine and health, small cell carcinoma in railway and truck transport and large cell carcinoma in the primary metal industry.
