Retrospective assessment of asbestos exposure. I: Case-control analysis in a study of lung cancer : efficiency of job-specific questionnaires and job exposure matrices.
In a lung cancer study in Northern Germany the asbestos exposure assessment obtained from detailed supplementary questionnaires (SQ) was compared to the assessment obtained by the application of two job exposure matrices (JEM) to the job history.
The study includes 391 incident male cases and the same number of controls from the general population, matched by sex, age, and region.
Almost 16% of the subjects are considered as never having been exposed to asbestos and 24% are classified as certainly exposed according to both of the JEM, the correspondig percentages of the SQ-method being 68% and 32%.
