A number of men with malignant lymphoma of the histiocytic type and previous exposure to phenoxy acids or chlorophenols were observed and reported in 1979. A matched case-control study has therefore been performed with cases of malignant lymphoma (Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin lymphoma). This study included 169 cases and 338 controls. The results indicate that exposure to phenoxy acids, chlorophenols, and organic solvents may be a causative factor in malignant lymphoma. Combined exposure of… Expand
Exposure to phenoxyacetic acids, chlorophenols, or organic solvents in relation to histopathology, stage, and anatomical localization of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
TLDR
Results on 105 cases with histopathologically confirmed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and 335 controls from a previously published case-control study on malignant lymphoma are presented together with some extended analyses, showing increased risk for NHL following exposure to phenoxyacetic acids, chlorophenols, or organic solvents. Expand
Exposure to organic solvents and risk of haematological malignancies.
TLDR
There is epidemiological evidence that exposure to organic solvents may also increase the risk of lymphoproliferative malignancies, i.e. ALL, NHL, HD and myeloma. Expand
Some aspects of the etiology of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
TLDR
Experimental evidence and clinical observations indicate that exposure to chemicals such as phenoxyacetic acids; chlorophenols; dioxins; organic solvents; and immunosuppressive drugs indicate that these chemicals may impair the immune system. Expand
Leukaemia and lymphoma risks derived from solvents
  • L. Brandt
  • Medicine
  • Medical oncology and tumor pharmacotherapy
  • 1987
TLDR
Results of epidemiologic studies indicating an association between solvent exposure and the development of malignancies affecting haematopoietic and lymphatic tissues are reviewed and the need for further Epidemiologic, cytogenetic and clinical studies on the association between solvents exposure and malignant diseases is emphasised.

Phenoxy herbicides and chlorophenols: a case control study on soft tissue sarcoma and malignant lymphoma.
A case control study on patients with soft tissue sarcoma and malignant lymphoma was undertaken to test whether there was any association between these diseases and past exposure to chlorinatedExpand

  • 1990
TLDR
The evidence does not unequivocally incriminate phenoxys and chlorophenols as a cause of these tumors, and it is concluded that further studies of these cohorts are required before it can be determined whether or not these tumors are caused by exposure to phenoxy acids andchlorophenols. Expand
Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, leukemia, and exposures in agriculture: results from the Italian multicenter case-control study.
TLDR
The results of the case-control study suggest an increased risk for NHL and leukemia, and some chemical classes of pesticides, although few are statistically significant and some are based on few exposed cases. Expand

  • 1998
TLDR
The present review evaluates the results of studies that directly or indirectly searched for an association between solvent exposure and NHL, designed to investigate risk factors for NHL, whether specifically looking for solvent exposure or for general risks in which solvent exposure could be included. Expand
DO PHENOXY HERBICIDES CAUSE CANCER IN MAN?
TLDR
Two Swedish case-control studies have shown an increased risk of soft-tissue sarcomas in men exposed to phenoxy herbicides and chlorophenols during their application, and a third study in Sweden suggests that phenoxy acids andchlorophenols may also predispose to Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Pesticides, soft-tissue sarcoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma – historical aspects on the precautionary principle in cancer prevention
TLDR
The author postulated that the regulation or ban of the use of chlorophenols, certain phenoxy herbicides and some persistent organic pollutants in Sweden back in the 1970s has contributed to the now decreasing incidence of NHL. Expand

Case-control study: soft-tissue sarcomas and exposure to phenoxyacetic acids or chlorophenols.
TLDR
Exposure to phenoxyacetic acids or chlorophenols gave an approximately 6-fold increase in the risk for soft-tissue sarcomas, it was not possible to determine, however, whether the carcinogenic effect was exerted by these compounds or by impurities such as chlorinated dibenzodioxins anddibenzofurans that in almost all cases were part of the commercial preparations. Expand
Soft-tissue sarcomas and exposure to chemical substances: a case-referent study.
TLDR
A new investigation gave an increase of the same magnitude in the risk for soft-tissue sarcomas after exposure to phenoxy acids or chlorophenols, but this risk related also to exposure to Phenoxy acids free from impurities, such as polychlorinated dibenzodioxins and dibazofurans. Expand
LYMPHOMAS AND OCCUPATIONAL BENZENE EXPOSURE
There was a significant excess of deaths caused by major lymphomas in men employed in occupations where benzene and/or coal tar fractions are used. The increase in risk was limited to those who wereExpand
Leukemia in benzene workers.
TLDR
Reconstruction of past exposures to benzene at the two locations indicates that in some areas of the plant airborne benzene concentrations rose occasionally to several hundred parts per million (ppm), but that for the most part, employee eight-hour time-weighted averages (TWA) fell within the limits considered permissible at the time of exposure.

Occupation and Hodgkin's disease.

An incidence survey of Hodgkin's disease was conducted in the Boston Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area for 1959-73 and, as in previous studies, woodworkers had an excess risk of HD, but the reason for this is obscure. Expand

The reader will find in this text a very complete review of one aspect of cancer study which unfortunately is not well correlated with the many other avenues of cancer research such as immunology, viruses, or biochemistry. Expand

New approaches to the classification of the lymphomata.
TLDR
The results of initial functional studies provide support for the proposed classification and indicate that the modern pathological investigative approach requires the collection of fresh lymphomatous tissue and an integrated immunocytochemical and morphological approach for the precise characterization of human lymphoma cell types.

TLDR
Results show that further, more detailed experimental and, possibly, epidemiologic studies are warranted, and styrene seems to be mutagenic toward the same strains, but only after metabolic activation. Expand
