Título An epidemiological study concerning herbicides.
Información bibliográfica 1973, Vol.24, No.4, p.375-380. Illus. 20 ref.
Resumen Communication to the Swedish-Yugoslav symposium on pesticides (Milocer, Yugoslavia, 4-8 Dec. 1972). A preliminary study of 324 Swedish railway workers spraying herbicides on railway tracks between 1957 and 1971 showed 2 lung cancer cases in excess of predictable statistics (1 adenocarcinoma and 1 oat-cell cancer). Although the number of subjects and especially the number of cancers were small, the possibility that amitrole (1H-1,2,4-triazol-3-amine) and the combined action of this substance and smoking might have caused the lung cancers cannot be ruled out.
