Título Background radiation, electrical work, and some other exposures associated with acute myeloid leukemia in a case-referent study
Información bibliográfica Mar.-Apr. 1986, Vol.41, No.2, p.77-84. 41 ref.
Resumen Case-referent study involving 59 cases and 354 referents. Information on exposure was collected through mailed questionnaires. The possible effect of background radiation was evaluated by means of a gamma radiation index (based on time spent in concrete buildings both at home and at work). In the 20-54-year-old age group there was an association between leukaemia morbidity and index of background radiation. X-ray treatment and electrical work were also associated with increased rate ratios. With regard to other exposures, only styrene appeared as a risk factor.
