Proceedings of the First NCI/EPA/NIOSH Collaborative Workshop: Progress on Joint Environmental and Occupational Cancer Studies.
NIOSH 1980 May:863 pages
Proceedings of a workshop on progress in environmental and occupational cancer studies are presented. Epidemiological and industrial hygiene studies of populations exposed to potential carcinogens were reported. New methodological approaches and developments for testing for carcinogenicity and mutagenicity, experimental studies on the carcinogenicity of different chemicals, the development of in-vitro tests for screening chemicals for carcinogenic potential, and the development of markers useful in the diagnosis of malignant diseases were reported. Problems and new developments in radiation carcinogenesis studies were discussed, with emphasis on the carcinogenic effects of exposure to ultraviolet- B radiation. Data resources for determining occupational hazards and information and modeling systems were described. Uses of the National Occupational Hazard Survey of NIOSH were discussed. The authors conclude that the collaborative research programs of NIOSH, the National Cancer Institute, and the Environmental Protection Agency have resulted in considerable progress in the identification of cancer hazards in the general work environment.
