Abstract
The carcinogenicity of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) is being investigated in several NIOSH cohort studies. The purpose of this work was to develop period-specific job exposure matrices for a cohort of capacitor manufacture workers (n=7512, 22% women) who worked with PCBs from the 1940's until PCB use was banned in 1977.
