  1. Different roles for phenacetin and paracetamol in cancer of the kidney and renal pelvis.

    Article - En anglais

    A population-based case-control study of kidney cancer was carried out in New South Wales using data from structured interviews with 489 cases of renal-cell cancer and 147 cases of renal pelvic cancer diagnosed in 1989 and 1990, together with 523 controls from the electoral rolls.

    This study showed that the risk of renal pelvic cancer was increased by phenacetin/aspirin compound analgesics (RR=12.2; 95% CI 6.8-22.2) to a far greater extent than by paracetamol (RR=1.3; 95% CI 0.7-2.4; not significant).

    There was a doubling of risk (RR=2.0; 95% CI 0.9-4.4) in the highest tertile of paracetamol taken in any form compared with values for non-users of any type of analgesic.
