In a case-control study of NPC conducted in the Philippines, 104 predominantly non-Chinese (<1% ethnically Chinese) cases of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and 205 hospital and community controls were recruited.
Risk factor information was obtained through personal interview.
The occupational history of each subject was reviewed « blind » by an industrial hygienist to determine estimates of exposure to formaldehyde, solvents, dusts, exhaust and pesticides.
After control for confounding, subjects who were first exposed to formaldehyde 25 or more years prior to diagnosis/interview or who were first exposed before the age of 25 were found, in relation to those never exposed, to be at a 4.0-fold excess risk of disease.
