The goal of this study was to determine whether exposure to styrene is associated with an increased risk for neoplasms of the lymphatic and hematopoietic tissues.
A historical cohort study was conducted in Denmark, Finland, Italy, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
It involved 40 688 workers ever employed in the reinforced plastics industry, where high exposure to styrene occurs.
Exposure to styrene was reconstructed through job histories and environmental and biological monitoring data.
Cause-specific national death rates were used as the reference.
Poisson regression was applied for internal comparisons.
Among the exposed workers, no excess was observed for mortality from all neoplasms.
