Título Follow-up study among model and pattern makers in an automobile company in the Federal Republic of Germany
Información bibliográfica May 1992, Vol.34, No.5, p.552-558. 13 ref.
Resumen The follow-up of a cohort of 528 model-makers and a control group of 2,273 tool-makers shows an unusual pattern of mortality in the model-makers' cohort. In contrast to the usual ranking, malignant neoplasms are the most frequent causes of death followed by diseases of the cardiovascular system. The rate ratio (RR) for malignant tumours is significantly higher among model-makers than in tool-makers: RR=1.8. The sites affected by excess cancer were the stomach, the genito-urinary organs, and the brain. In contrast to other studies, no tumours of the large intestine were observed. Furthermore, there was a remarkable underrepresentation of tumours of the respiratory organs. Because these results are based on a rather small number of cases, further follow-up of the cohort is warranted to draw more significant conclusions.
