  1. Increased risk of urothelial cancer in Stockholm during 1985-87 after exposure to benzene and exhausts.

    Article - En anglais

    In a population-based case-referent study of urothelial cancer in Stockholm during 1985-87, information was obtained from 80% of 320 identified male cases and 79% of 363 selected male referents.

    Industrial exposures were assessed for each subject by an industrial hygienist on the basis of questionnaire data.

    Exposure to benzene (any annual dose) gave a relative risk (with 95% confidence interval) of 2.0 (1.0-3.8).

    The highest risk was seen for a high annual dose.

    Subjects exposed to both diesel and petrol exhausts (moderate/high annual dose) had a relative risk of 7.1 (0.9-58.8).
