Occupational prestige, social mobility and the association with lung cancer in men

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.

Lung cancer among coal miners, ore miners and quarrymen: smoking-adjusted risk estimates from the synergy pooled analysis of case-control studies

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.

Lung cancer risk among bricklayers in a pooled analysis of case-control studies

The researchers examined lung cancer risk among bricklayers within SYNERGY, a large international pooled analysis of case-control studies on lung cancer and the joint effects of occupational carcinogens.

Effect modification of the association of cumulative exposure and cancer risk by intensity of exposure and time since exposure cessation: a flexible method applied to cigarette smoking and lung cancer in the SYNERGY Study

To assess the independent effects of duration and intensity of exposure on cancer risk, the researchers explored effect modification of the association of cumulative exposure and cancer risk by intensity of exposure.

Welding and lung cancer in a pooled analysis of case-control studies

The SYNERGY project database was used to assess welding as a risk factor for developing lung cancer.
