Título Respiratory cancer and occupational exposure to arsenicals.
Información bibliográfica Nov. 1974, Vol.29, No.5, p.250-255. Illus. 12 ref.
Resumen The proportionate mortality experience of 173 deceased workers exposed primarily to lead arsenate and calcium arsenate was compared with that of 1,809 deceased controls not exposed to these compounds. An overall increase in respiratory cancer and a positive dose-response relationship was found in the exposed employees. No common factor other than exposure to the compounds was found among the employees to explain these observations. Arsenic therefore deserves further investigation as a cause of respiratory cancer.
