  1. A meta-analysis of colorectal cancer and asbestos exposure.

    Article - En anglais

    A meta-analysis of the relation between asbestos exposure and colorectal cancer mortality was conducted, using published reports of 20 asbestos-exposed cohorts.

    Summary standardized mortality ratios (SMRs) for colorectal cancer were examined in relation to asbestos type and estimates of dust exposure (as direct estimators of asbestos exposure) and in relation to lung cancer SMR and the proportion of all deaths due to mesothelioma (as proxy estimators of asbestos exposure).

    An elevated summary SMR was observed in cohorts exposed to amphibole asbestos (summary SMR=1.47 ; 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.09-2.00), but not in cohorts exposed to serpentine asbestos (summary SMR=1.04 ; 95% CI 0.81-1.33) or in cohorts exposed to both serpentine and amphibole asbestos (summary SMR=1.03 ; 95% CI 0.74-1.42).
