Work activity and non-melanoma skin cancer
La actividad laboral en relación con el cáncer cutáneo no melanoma [in Spanish]
The incidence of non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) is increasing, and the risk of developing this disease is higher in areas with long hours of sunshine, as in Valencia in Spain. A study was made in a hospital in Valencia during the period 1977-1993, with the aim of establishing occupations at higher risk of NMSC and major risk factors. Results showed that domestic and agricultural activities were the groups most associated with NMSC, as were a light skin complexion and the presence of pre-existing skin lesions in both groups. Tobacco smoking and alcohol consumption were most frequent among agricultural workers. Concerning the type of tumor involved, squamous cell carcinoma was the most common tumor in the agricultural sector, while basal cell carcinoma was the most common tumor among domestic workers. Topics: agriculture; alcoholism; carcinoma; chemical products; domestic service; job-exposure relation; risk factors; skin cancer; smoking; solar radiation; Spain; statistical evaluation; survey.

Allergy risk in an enzyme producing plant: A restrospective follow up study
A study of workers at a plant producing detergent and other industrial enzymes showed that sensitization occurred to all types of enzymes handled in the plant, most often in the production areas and laboratories. 8.8% of workers developed clinical enzyme allergy during the first three years of employment. Ranking diagnoses of enzyme allergy by severity, the frequency of asthma was 5.3%, rhinitis 3.0% and urticaria 0.6%. Half of the cases occurred within the first 15 months of exposure. Smoking was an independent risk factor for clinical enzyme allergy, while atopic predisposition at the time of engagement was not. Topics: allergic asthma; allergic respiratory disorders; allergic rhinitis; enzymes; individual susceptibility; long-term study; pulmonary function; radioallergosorbent test; risk factors; sensitization; smoking; urticaria.
