OBJECTIVE We undertook a sensitivity analysis of the lung cancer standardized mortality ratios (SMRs) in a study of 1522 German carbon black workers from 1976 to 1998. METHODS We applied results from a case-control study to adjust the SMR for smoking habits and exposures experienced before the carbon black job. In addition, sensitivity to reference rates… CONTINUE READING
