  1. Head and neck surveillance program for factory personnel exposed to asbestos.

    Article, Congrès - En anglais

    American Laryngological Association. Meeting. Waikoloa HI (USA), 1991/05/04.

    Personnel at a local factory that manufactures brake linings and discs in which asbestos is a major component were requested to participate in an on-site surveillance program to detect head and neck abnormalities, specifically cancer.

    Demographic data included smoking histories and job descriptions that could be delineated into high- and low-asbestos exposure groups.

    In the first year, 322 factory workers had no cancer identified but 15% had laryngeal abnormalities, mostly laryngitis.

    Ninety-seven percent of those workers with abnormal findings were smokers, but there were a significant number in the high-asbestos group irrespective of smoking histories.
