The researchers studied the association between lung cancer and the level of time-weighted average occupational social prestige as well as its lifetime trajectory by using data from the international pooled SYNERGY case-control study.
The aim of this study was to explore lung cancer risk among firefighters, with adjustment for smoking.
This study aimed to estimate the smoking-adjusted lung cancer risk among coal miners and compare the risk pattern with lung cancer risks among ore miners and quarrymen.
Findings from this large international case-control consortium indicate that after accounting for co-occurring respiratory diseases, chronic bronchitis and emphysema continue to have a positive association with lung cancer.
