Cancer de la vessie et expositions professionnelles aux fluides de coupe
Étude épidémiologique parmi les travailleurs de la sidérurgie en France L'objectif de cette étude est de rechercher s'il existe un risque de cancer de la vessie associé à des expositions professionnelles à des brouillards d'huiles, issus de l'utilisation d'huiles entières ou de fluides aqueux. Une étude cas-témoins a été mise en place au sein d'une cohorte de 22 795 travailleurs de la sidérurgie du Nord - Pas-de-Calais. Les cas de cancer de vessie ont été diagnostiqués...
Occupation and Risk of Bladder Cancer in Nordic Countries
Objective: The purpose of the study was to describe the variation of bladder cancer incidence according to occupational categories in the Nordic countries. Methods: The study cohort comprised 15 million individuals older than 30 years who participated in one or more population censuses in 1960, 1970, 1980/1981, and/or 1990. Standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) were estimated for 53 occupational categories. Results: Significantly increased SIRs were observed among tobacco workers (1.57; 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.24 to 1.96), chimney sweeps (1.48; 95% CI 1.21 to 1.80), waiters (1.43; 95% CI...
Bladder Cancer Screening in Aluminum Smelter Workers
Objective: To present results of a bladder cancer screening program conducted in 18 aluminum smelters in the United States from January 2000 to December 2010. Methods: Data were collected on a cohort of workers with a history of working in coal tar pitch volatile exposed areas including urine analysis for conventional cytology and ImmunoCyt/uCyt+ assay. Results: ImmunoCyt/uCyt+ and cytology in combination showed a sensitivity of 62.30%, a specificity of 92.60%, a negative predictive value of 99.90%, and a positive predictive value of 2.96%. Fourteen cases of bladder cancer were detected, and the...
Le Parlement européen dénonce l'indifférence vis-à-vis du cancer de la vessie
Le Parlement européen (PE) estime que trop peu d'attention est accordée aux cancers de la vessie, qu'il qualifie de "cancers oubliés". Le PE cite des chiffres de l'OMS qui font état de 120.000 nouveaux cas de cancer de la vessie diagnostiqués dans l'Union européenne en 2012. Dix pour cent de ces cancers seraient liés à l'exposition professionnelle à des substances toxiques telles que les amines aromatiques, les hydrocarbures chlorés et les hydrocarbures aromatiques polycycliques.

Bladder cancer risk in painters
A meta-analysis The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified occupational exposure as a painter as ‘carcinogenic to humans', largely based on increased risks of bladder and lung cancer. A meta-analysis, including more than 2900 incident cases or deaths from bladder cancer among painters reported in 41 cohort (n=2), record linkage (n=9) and case–control (n=30) studies, was conducted to quantitatively compare the results of the different study designs and the potential confounding effect of smoking as well as other occupational exposures. The summary relative risk...
