Título Mortality study update of ethylene oxide workers in chemical manufacturing: A 15 year update
Información bibliográfica June 2009, Vol.51, No.6, p.714-723. 24 ref.
Resumen To investigate the long-term mortality patterns of workers with past exposure to ethylene oxide (EO), a cohort of 2063 men employed between 1940 and 1988 in EO production were observed for mortality through 2003. Cause specific standardized mortality ratios (SMRs) were calculated. Internal analyses were made by applying Cox proportional hazards models to the data. No indications were found for excess cancer risks from EO exposures, including the lymphohaematopoietic malignancies. There were 11 leukaemia deaths and 11.8 expected, and 12 non-Hodgkin lymphoma deaths and 11.5 expected.
