Abstract
Report of the mortality experience of the limited number of uranium mill workers who were examined between 1950 and 1953 as part of a study of uranium workers originally conducted by the U.S. Public Health Service. Death certificates were obtained for men who died between 1950 and December 31, 1967. The only specific cause of death which demonstrated a significant excess was malignant disease of the lymphatic and hematopoietic tissue. Data from animal experiments suggest that this excess may have resulted from irradiation of lymph nodes. Statistical information is given on the observed and expected deaths according to cause among uranium mill workers; mill workers who died of malignant disease of lymphatic and hematopoietic tissue other than leukemia; and frequency distribution of uranium concentrations in the urine of mill workers.
