This case-control study evaluated the relationship between bladder cancer and occupational factors in an area of North-east Italy.
The study included 273 bladder cancer cases and 573 controls identified through the services of local hospitals.
Information on socio-demographic characteristics, past medical history, lifestyle factors, employment in certain industries and occupational exposures was obtained by interviewing study subjects.
Elevated relative risks (RR), albeit not statistically significant, were found among males ever employed in the general chemical (RR=2.8), dye (RR=6.9) and painting (RR=3.1) industries.
When results related to the general chemical and speciality chemical industries were combined the RR was 3.1 (95% confidence interval [Cl]: 1.2-8.5).
