Diesel Exhaust in Miners Study

The Diesel Exhaust in Miners Study is a collaborative effort between National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and National Cancer Institute (NCI) involving two epidemiological components (i.e., cohort study and a cases-control study, respectively) evaluating whether diesel exhaust exposure is associated with risk of dying from lung cancer. The Cohort Mortality Study with Emphasis on Lung Cancer was undertaken by NIOSH. The Nested Case- Control Study of Lung Cancer and Diesel Exhaust was undertaken by NCI.
