Abstract
A case control study of eye and kidney cancers at a chemical production facility compared the work experiences of cancer patients with a set of matched controls. Odds ratios were computed for any department or job title held by a case or a control. There was no evidence that a specific department or job title was associated with the occurrence of either eye or kidney cancer. The authors suggest that the failure to identify any association does not eliminate the possibility of an association.
