Mortality Update for the Pantex Weapons Facility: Final Report

A study of Pantex workers published in 1985 was limited by the small number of deaths and short follow-up, although the risk of several cancers was elevated. Vital status was updated through 1995. An SMR analysis with examination of dose-response was conducted; however, it was not possible to update exposure information for the cohort (duration of employment was used as a surrogate for dose). A decision to return to the facility to conduct an updated analysis is pending.
