Neurologic function among termiticide applicators exposed to chlorpyrifos.
Chlorpyrifos is a moderately toxic organophosphate pesticide. Houses and lawns in the United States receive a total of approximately 20 million annual chlorpyrifos treatments, and 82% of U.S. adults… Expand
Analysis of lognormally distributed exposure data with repeated measures and values below the limit of detection using SAS.
Studies of determinants of occupational exposure frequently involve left-censored lognormally distributed data, often with repeated measures. Left censoring occurs when observations are below the… Expand

Phthalates are used as plasticizers and solvents in industrial, medical and consumer products; however, occupational exposure information is limited. We sought to obtain preliminary information on… Expand
Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Risk and Insecticide, Fungicide and Fumigant Use in the Agricultural Health Study
Farming and pesticide use have previously been linked to non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and multiple myeloma (MM). We evaluated agricultural use of specific… Expand
Determinants of chlorpyrifos exposures and urinary 3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridinol levels among termiticide applicators.
The exposures and work activities of 41 applicators in North Carolina using chlorpyrifos-containing termiticides were characterized. Personal air and urine samples were collected on multiple days… Expand

Background: Atrazine is a triazine herbicide used widely in the United States. Although it is an animal carcinogen, the mechanism in rodents does not appear to operate in humans. Few epidemiologic… Expand
Cancer incidence among pesticide applicators exposed to captan in the Agricultural Health Study
ObjectiveCaptan is a widely used antifungal pesticide whose potential to cause cancer in humans is uncertain.MethodsWe evaluated the incidence of cancer among pesticide applicators exposed to captan… Expand
Research Recommendations for Selected IARC-Classified Agents
Objectives There are some common occupational agents and exposure circumstances for which evidence of carcinogenicity is substantial but not yet conclusive for humans. Our objectives were to identify… Expand
