Cancer Incidence in World Trade Center Rescue and Recovery Workers, 2001–2008

World Trade Center (WTC) rescue and recovery workers were exposed to a complex mix of pollutants and carcinogens. Cancers among 20,984 consented participants in the WTC Health Program were identified through linkage to state tumor registries in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. Standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) were calculated to compare cancers diagnosed in responders to predicted numbers for the general population. Multivariate regression models were used to estimate associations with degree of exposure.
