  1. ncbi Mesothelioma among brake mechanics: an expanded analysis of a case-control study
    Patrick A Hessel
    Exponent, Wood Dale, IL 60191, USA
    Risk Anal 24:547-52. 2004
    ..The results are consistent with the existing literature indicating that brake work does not increase the risk of mesothelioma and adds to the evidence that fiber type and size are important determinants of mesothelioma risk...
  2. ncbi Relationship between silicosis and smoking
    Patrick A Hessel
    University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
    Scand J Work Environ Health 29:329-36. 2003
    ..A positive association between radiographic silicosis and smoking would bias studies of silicosis and lung cancer, especially those lacking smoking data...

    ..54; 95% confidence interval, 1.69-82.20). There was no association between atrazine exposure and prostate cancer when those with > or =1 test were compared. There was no evidence for an association between atrazine and prostate cancer...
  4. ncbi An investigation of noise levels in Alberta sawmills
    Niels Koehncke
    Department of Public Health Sciences, University of Alberta, Alberta, Canada
    Am J Ind Med 43:156-64. 2003
    ..Noise exposure in the sawmill industry is an area of concern. This study documents the level of noise exposure in nine sawmills in the province of Alberta, Canada...
  5. ncbi Relationship between silicosis and lung function
    John F Gamble
    Scand J Work Environ Health 30:5-20. 2004
    ..Silica exposure was often inadequately controlled in studies examining silicosis and lung function. A few studies suggested that emphysema is an independent risk factor associated with significant reductions in lung function...
  6. ncbi Mesothelioma and lung cancer among motor vehicle mechanics: a meta-analysis
    Michael Goodman
    Emory University Rollins School of Public Health, 1518 Clifton Road NE, Atlanta, GA 30322, USA
    Ann Occup Hyg 48:309-26. 2004
    ..Although some studies showed a small increase in risk of lung cancer among motor vehicle mechanics, the data on balance do not support a conclusion that lung cancer risk in this occupational group is related to asbestos exposure...
  7. ncbi Near-fatal asthma: a population-based study of risk factors
    Ian Mitchell
    Child Health Research Unit, University of Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada
    Chest 121:1407-13. 2002
    ..We therefore aimed to identify factors distinguishing NFA patients (cases) from those persons treated in an emergency department (ED) [ED control subjects] and in the community (community control subjects [CCs])...
