Título Farming and malignant lymphoma in Hancock County, Ohio
Información bibliográfica Jan. 1988, Vol.45, No.1, p.25-28. 26 ref.
Resumen A case-control study was conducted using death certificate records of white male Hancock County (Ohio, USA) residents for 1958-83 which revealed raised death rates for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) and Hodgkin's disease (HD). There were 61 cases of NHL, 15 cases of HD, and 304 control subjects. Cases and controls were compared with respect to adjustment for age at death and year of death. Summary odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were calculated. NHL was associated with the occupation of farmer (OR=1.6; CI=0.8, 3.4; observed number of exposed cases (Obs) = 15). The association was restricted to 1958-75 (OR=2.1; CI=0.9, 4.8; Obs=13). The 3 cases of HD among farmers occurred in a cluster in the 15-64 age range during 1958-63 (OR=21.2). This small study adds to the growing body of reports linking farming and malignant lymphoma, particularly NHL.
