Dinitrotoluene exposure in the copper mining industry and renal cancer: a case-cohort study.
We found a statistically significant HR of 2.12 (95% CI 1.03 to 4.37) for combined medium or high inhalation and medium or high dermal exposure to DNT. According to our case-cohort study, dermal and inhalation exposure to DNT is associated with increased renal cancer risk....
Rule-based exposure assessment versus case-by-case expert assessment using the same information in a community-based study.
We explored the agreement between a rule-based assessment approach and case-by-case expert assessment of occupational exposures in a community-based study. We used data from a case-control study of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in which parental occupational exposures were originally assig...
Multiple metal exposures and renal effect: their magnitude of contribution.
Work characteristics, socioeconomic position and health: a systematic review of mediation and moderation effects in prospective studies.
We set out to study this question by conducting a systematic literature review. We included all original papers based on prospective observational studies of employed cohorts that were published between January 1980 and October 2012 meeting our search criteria, by using major databases and by observ...
Occupational exposure to trichloroethylene and perchloroethylene and the risk of lymphoma, liver, and kidney cancer in four Nordic countries...
We explored exposure-response relations for TCE and PER and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), multiple myeloma (MM), and cancers of the kidney and liver in the Nordic Occupational Cancer cohort. The cohort was set up by linking occupational information from censuses to national cancer registry data usin...
Fractional exhaled nitric oxide among cement factory workers: a cross sectional study.
We explored any associations between total dust exposure and fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) as a marker of airway eosinophilic inflammation among cement production workers in Tanzania. We also examined possible differences in FENO concentration between workers in different parts of the produ...
Mould and dampness in dwelling places, and onset of asthma: the population-based cohort ECRHS.
I and II) who did not report respiratory symptoms or asthma at baseline were followed prospectively for 9 years. Asthma was assessed by questionnaire data on asthmatic symptoms and a positive metacholine challenge test at follow-up. Data on the current dwelling was collected at the beginning and at...
Effects of environmental cadmium exposure on liver function in adults.
We investigated whether environmental cadmium exposure is associated with an elevation in serum liver enzyme activity in Korean adults. This cross-sectional study evaluated adult participants without liver disease from the Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey for 2008-2009. Multip...
The Upper Midwest Health Study: gliomas and occupational exposure to chlorinated solvents.
We evaluated glioma risk from non-farm occupational exposure (ever/never and estimated cumulative exposure) to any of the six chlorinated solvents-carbon tetrachloride, chloroform, methylene chloride, trichloroethylene, tetrachloroethylene or 1,1,1-trichloroethane-among 798 cases and 1175 population...
