Abstract
A follow up survey is reported of individuals exposed for 5 or more years to vinyl-chloride in a polymerization facility. At least 17 percent of the deaths are found to be causally related to exposure to vinyl-chloride. Longer periods of observations are required to provide information concerning the full spectrum of vinyl-chloride induced malignancies and their incidence among exposed workers. Results indicate the need to prevent exposure to vinyl-chloride and for surveillance and early disease detection of workers with a past record of exposures.
