Abstract
A conference was held to present new data on the occupational cancer risks among women, to clarify the methodological problems inherent in studying female workers and suggest manners of overcoming such obstacles, to identify data resources that can be used to investigate occupational risk factors for cancer among women, to define research needs in the field of occupational cancer, and to stimulate further research on the occupational determinants of cancer among women. Some of the topics specifically addressed at the conference included identifying where women are working and the special hazards they face there, a historical perspective of the occupational hazards for women, recent cancer patterns among working women, the inclusion of women and minorities in epidemiologic data, toxicokinetic differences among and between men and women, gender differences in animal bioassays for carcinogenicity, dry cleaning workers, cable industry workers, workers exposed to benzene (71432), textile workers, workers exposed to asbestos (1332214), mine workers, workers in the man made vitreous fiber industry, women exposed to cadmium (7440439), women in the formaldehyde (50000) industry, and occupation and ovarian cancer in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
