The authors examined 1,615 workers exposed to dioxins in trichlorophenol production in Midland, Michigan, to determine if there were increased mortality rates from exposure. Historical dioxin levels were estimated by a serum survey of workers. Vital status was followed from 1942 to 2003, and cause-specific death rates and trends with exposure were evaluated. All cancers combined (standardized mortality ratio (SMR) = 1.0, 95% confidence interval (CI): 0.8, 1.1), lung cancers (SMR = 0.7, 95% CI… Expand
Mortality risk among workers with exposure to dioxins.
TLDR
This study provides little evidence of increased risk when dioxin exposures are considered and should be interpreted with caution due to the small number of deaths and the uncertainty in diagnosis and nosology. Expand
Cancer Incidence of 2,4-D Production Workers
TLDR
Overall, there were fewer cancer cases than expected, and a non statistically significant increase in the number of NHL cases, and no clear patterns of NHL risk with period of hire and histology subtypes. Expand
2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibezo-p-dioxin exposure and prostate cancer: a meta-analysis of cohort studies.
TLDR
This meta-analysis suggests that exposure to TCDD is associated with increased risk of prostate cancer and Begg's funnel plot showed little evidence of publication bias. Expand
Chronic exposure to chlorophenol related compounds in the pesticide production workplace and lung cancer: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
The findings has strengthen the evidence of lung cancer from chronic exposure to chlorophenol related compounds (PAs, CPs), which was studied in 15 cohort studies until August 2013. Expand
A critical review of the epidemiology of Agent Orange or 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin and lymphoid malignancies.
TLDR
A causal effect of TCDD on NHL, HL, MM, or subtypes of these lymphoid malignancies has not been established and epidemiologic studies do not show an association with HL, whereas the indication of a positive association with MM in a limited number of studies, but not others, remains to be confirmed. Expand
Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans and their association with cancer mortality among workers in one automobile foundry factory.
TLDR
It is indicated that there was a dose-response relationship between PCDD/F exposure and cancer mortality among foundry workers and cancer mortalities among workers in one automobile foundry factory were calculated. Expand
TCDD and cancer: A critical review of epidemiologic studies
TLDR
Recent epidemiological evidence falls far short of conclusively demonstrating a causal link between TCDD exposure and cancer risk in humans, and the emphasis on results for overall cancer risk rather than risk for specific neoplasms is not justified on epidemiologic grounds. Expand
Elimination Rates of Dioxin Congeners in Former Chlorophenol Workers from Midland, Michigan
TLDR
The estimated elimination rates can inform occupational and environmental exposure and serum evaluations for dioxin compounds and underpredicted observed elimination rates for concentrations < 100 ppt. Expand
Dioxin Exposure in the Manufacture of Pesticide Production as a Risk Factor for Death from Prostate Cancer: A Meta-analysis
TLDR
A contaminated pesticide with dioxins between other pesticides is an important risk factor for prostate cancers in pesticide exposure groups such as farmers. Expand
Chronic exposure to chlorophenol related compounds in production workplace and kidney cancer: A meta-analysis
TLDR
The results of this study strengthen the evidence of cancer in occupational exposure to cholophenols contaminated with TCDD, which increased the risk of death from kidney cancer which was related to the type of chorophenol compound and dioxine contamination. Expand

Cancer risk for chemical workers exposed to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin
TLDR
The study highlights the wide range of cancer rates and the lack of consistency across dioxin studies and found no coherent evidence of increased cancer risk from dioxIn exposure in this cohort of male chemical production workers. Expand
Cancer mortality in workers exposed to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin.
TLDR
This study of mortality among workers with occupational exposure to TCDD does not confirm the high relative risks reported for many cancers in previous studies, and conclusions about an increase in the risk of soft-tissue sarcoma are limited by small numbers and misclassification on death certificates. Expand
Cancer mortality in workers exposed to phenoxy herbicides, chlorophenols, and dioxins. An expanded and updated international cohort study.
TLDR
Exposure to herbicides contaminated with TCDD and higher chlorinated dioxins may be associated with a small increase in overall cancer risk and in risk for specific cancers. Expand
The Mortality Experience of Workers Exposed to 2,3,7,8‐Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin in a Trichlorophenol Process Accident
TLDR
Examination of mortality rates for 754 employees at a chemical plant after an accident in 1949 finds workers exposed to 4-aminobiphenyl who developed chloracne from the accident had increased mortality rates from soft tissue sarcoma, bladder cancer, and respiratory cancer. Expand
Mortality experience of employees exposed to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD).
TLDR
The mortality experience of a cohort of 61 males involved in a 1964 chloracne incident is described and TCDD does not appear to have adversely affected mortality experience. Expand
Mortality experience of employees exposed to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD).
TLDR
This study describes the mortality experience of a cohort of 61 males involved in a 1964 chloracne incident, finding that TCDD does not appear to have adversely affected mortality experience. Expand

TLDR
It is important that no apparent excess in total mortality or in deaths from malignant neoplasms or diseases of the circulatory system was observed in a group of workers with a high peak exposure to tetrachlorodibenzodioxin who were followed over a period of nearly 30 years. Expand
Second follow-up of a Dutch cohort occupationally exposed to phenoxy herbicides, chlorophenols, and contaminants.
TLDR
Evidence of a high cancer risk in workers exposed to phenoxy herbicides, chlorophenols, and contaminants is supported and estimated relative risks for workers with medium and high TCDD levels were comparable with risks derived from the simple and earlier applied dichotomous exposure classification. Expand
Cancer mortality in German male workers exposed to phenoxy herbicides and dioxins
TLDR
Results are consistent with results from other cohorts which showed an increased overall cancer mortality and mortality of respiratory cancer after long-term exposure to these phenoxy herbicides and dioxins. Expand
Cancer, heart disease, and diabetes in workers exposed to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin.
TLDR
Excess cancer was limited to the highest exposed workers, with exposures that were likely to have been 100-1000 times higher than those experienced by the general population and similar to the TCDD levels used in animal studies. Expand
