Pesticide exposure and lymphoid neoplasms

Posted Nov 04 2009 10:03pm

Investigating the relationship between occupational exposure to pesticides and the risk of lymphoid neoplasms (LNs) in men in a hospital based case-control study in France. The results are based on case-by-case expert review of occupation-specific questionnaires. They support the hypothesis that occupational pesticide exposures may be involved in Hodgkin’s lymphoma , multiple myeloma and hairy-cell leukaemia and do not rule out a role in non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma . The analyses identified specific pesticides that deserve further investigation and the findings were consistent with those of previous studies.
