Objective: to investigate social inequalities in cancer mortality from 1975 through 1990 among men and women in France. Methods: A sample, that included census data for approximately 1% of the French population, has been followed for mortality from 1975 to 1990. Causes of death were obtained through a record-linkage with the French national cause-of-death(More)
A case-control study of cancer of the nose and paranasal sinuses was conducted in France to determine whether occupational exposure to formaldehyde was associated with an increased risk of sinonasal cancer. Exposures to 14 other substances or groups of substances were also studied (wood dust, leather dust, textile dust, flour dust, sugar dust, coal/coke(More)
A case-control study on respiratory cancers was conducted in New Caledonia (South Pacific), where a high incidence of malignant pleural mesothelioma had been observed. The disease pattern suggested an environmental exposure to asbestos. The first results showed that, in some areas, tremolite asbestos derived from local outcroppings was used as whitewash(More)
BACKGROUND The data from a case-control study performed in France between 1989 and 1991 were used to test whether exposure to either asbestos or to man-made vitreous fibers (MMVF) is a risk factor for cancer of the larynx or the hypopharynx. METHODS This study involved 315 incident cases of laryngeal cancer, 206 cases of hypopharyngeal cancer, and 305(More)
In order to examine the relationship between wood dust and sino-nasal cancer, data from 12 case-control studies conducted in seven countries were pooled and reanalyzed. The relative risks associated with wood-related jobs and with exposure to wood dust, measured using a job exposure matrix based on occupation and industry titles, were examined using(More)
We investigated the time trends in social inequalities in breast cancer mortality with an analysis by age at death and birth cohort using a representative 1% sample of the French population and four subcohorts (1968-1974, 1975-1981, 1982-1988 and 1990-1996). Causes of death were obtained by direct linkage with the French national death registry. Education(More)
Objective: In order to examine the associations between sinonasal cancer and occupational exposures other than wood dust and leather dust, the data from 12 case–control studies conducted in seven countries were pooled and reanalyzed. Methods: The pooled data set included 195 adenocarcinoma cases (169 men and 26 women), 432 squamous cell carcinomas (330 men(More)
BACKGROUND Little information is available on temporal trend in socioeconomic inequalities in cause of death mortality in France. The aim of this paper was to study educational differences in mortality in France by cause of death and their temporal trend. METHODS We used a representative sample of 1% of the French population and compared four periods(More)
A cross-sectional survey was carried out in 1980 among 824 nurses in 10 hospitals on the occasion of the annual checkups. The purpose was to describe the relationship between demographic and occupational characteristics and health, stressing the effects of work in shifts. Using Khi-2 tests and logistic models, the negative health effects of arduous shift(More)
Propranolol may reduce symptoms of autonomic arousal associated with early cocaine abstinence and improve treatment outcome. This trial was an 8-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of propranolol in 108 cocaine dependent subjects. The primary outcome measure was quantitative urinary benzoylecgonine levels. Secondary outcome measures included(More)
