The main objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that genetic variations in DNA repair genes may modify the association between occupational exposure to solvents and the risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). A population-based case-control study was conducted on Connecticut women including 518 histologically confirmed incident NHL cases and 597 controls. Unconditional logistic regression models were used to estimate the odds ratios and effect modification from the 30 single… CONTINUE READING
