Abstract
A review of the literature reveals that the recent advances in occupational cancer include identification of new carcinogens and the establishment of a number of perspectives for the present and future evaluation of other materials used in industry and/or agriculture. Topics reviewed are: latent period, with emphasis in the association of lung cancer to occupational exposure to asbestos (1332214); multiple factor etiology of occupational cancer; signal cancers which are correlated with exposure to certain well defined carcinogens; environmental cancer from occupational sources; dose- disease response relationships; and pretesting of new materials.
