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.
