  1. Cancer risk and tetrachloroethylene-contaminated drinking water in Massachusetts.

    Article - En anglais

    A population-based case-control study was used to evaluate the relationship between cases of bladder cancer (n=61), kidney cancer (n=35), and leukemia (n=34) and exposure to tetrachloroethylene from public drinking water.

    Subjects were exposed to tetrachloroethylene when it leached from the plastic lining of drinking water distribution pipes.

    Relative delivered dose of tetrachloroethylene was estimated, using an algorithm that accounted for (1) residential history and duration, (2) whether lined pipe served the neighborhood, (3) distribution system flow characteristics, and (4) pipe age and dimensions.
