Epidemiological study in the Arcelor steel plant in Dunkerque
A mortality study was carried out among workers employed in the Arcelor and GTS Industries plants in Dunkerque. It was aimed at assessing the possible association between iron oxide exposures and lung cancer risk. The cohort comprised 16,742 males and 959 females. Among males, the observed mortality was lower than expected for all causes. No significant lung cancer excess was observed for exposure to iron oxides and no dose-response relationship with intensity and duration of exposure.
