Objectives: Ammonium perfluorooctanoate (APFO) is a biopersistent surfactant used in the manufacture of several types of fluoropolymers. Based on previous findings of increased serum lipid levels associated with exposure to APFO, we evaluated ischaemic heart disease (IHD) mortality in a cohort of occupationally exposed workers. Methods: Relative risks (RR) were estimated from exposure–response analyses of cumulative exposure measures using proportional hazards regression models. Results: 239… Expand
