  1. Leukemia in telephone linemen.

    Article - En anglais

    This case-control study examines potential associations between telephone linework and the occurrence of leukemia except chronic lymphocytic leukemia in a primarily retired population of American Telephone and Telegraph Company (AT&T) workers.

    Cases died between 1975 and 1980.

    Exposure is defined both by job title and, for workers with complete job histories, by a lifetime exposure score based on industrial hygiene personal monitoring measurements of line and nonline jobs.

    When the time-weighted average mean for each job is accumulated into a lifetime exposure score, workers with scores above the median for the population show an excess of leukemia 2.5 times higher than workers below the median (95% confidence interval (Cl) 0.7-8.6).
