Título Mortality risk in the French cohort of uranium miners: Extended follow-up 1946-1999
Información bibliográfica Sep. 2008, Vol.65, No.9, p.597-604. Illus. 42 ref.
Resumen This study examined the mortality of the French cohort of uranium miners through 1999, and association with radon exposure. The cohort consisted of 5086 men employed as uranium miners for at least one year between 1946 and 1990. For each miner, vital status and cause of death were obtained from the national registry, and radon exposure was reconstructed for each year. Standardized mortality ratios (SMRs) were computed with national mortality rates as references. The overall mortality did not differ significantly from the general male population. There was an excess risk of lung cancer death (SMR 1.43), which increased significantly with cumulative radon exposure. The excess risk of death from renal cancer (SMR 2.00) was however not associated with cumulative radon exposure. Other findings are discussed.
