The association between lung cancer and occupational exposure in the textile industry was investigated in a population-based case-referent study conducted in the Prato area of the province of Florence (Italy) where there is a concentration of textile factories.
A complete response to a postal questionnaire was obtained for 207 cases (85.1%) and 440 referents (76.1%). Those who had ever worked in the textile industry had an odds ratio (OR) of 1.45 [95% confidence interval (95% CI) 1.0-2.1]; when nine different textile job titles were considered, an increased OR was observed only for rag sorters (OR 2.2, 95% CI 1.3-3.8) and weavers (OR 1.7, 95% CI 1.1-2.7).
