The authors report the results of a case-cohort study of 338 lung cancer deaths in 1950-1988 and a random sample (sub-cohort) of 1,138 from among 16,297 men who had worked at least one year between 1950 and 1979 in manual jobs at a large aluminum production plant. In the past, certain workers were exposed to substantial quantities of coal tar pitch(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to investigate the mortality of electrical utility workers exposed to electric and magnetic fields. METHODS A historical cohort mortality study was carried out on 21,744 workers who were employed in an electrical company in the province of Québec between 1970 and 1988. The last job held by each study subject was(More)
AIMS AND BACKGROUND Heavy ion therapy has shown promising results in the treatment of recurrent colorectal carcinoma. The present study evaluates the effect of five different cytostatic agents in combination with radiotherapy with carbon (C12) ions and photons in two isogenic colorectal cancer cell lines differing in p53 status. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN(More)
OBJECTIVES This case cohort study examines whether there is an association between exposure to electric and magnetic fields and suicide in a population of 21,744 male electrical utility workers from the Canadian Province of Québec. METHODS 49 deaths from suicide were identified between 1970 and 1988 and a subcohort was selected comprising a 1% random(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate how closely the variables of exposures to magnetic fields based on the last job held in an electrical utility in Québec, Canada, compared with those based on the workers' entire employment history with the company. METHODS In large cohort studies, the last job held is often used to assign exposure to the study subjects. Exposure(More)
BACKGROUND This work investigates on putative cytotoxic effects in four different hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cell lines after irradiation with photons or carbon ions in combination with new targeted molecular therapy using either Temsirolimus (TEM) or Gemcitabine (GEM). METHODS AND MATERIALS The HCC cell lines HepG2, Hep3B, HuH7, and PLC were cultured(More)
