Leukaemia mortality in three UK nuclear industry workforces: Comparison with the BEIR V model

Abstract:

Our previous comparison of risk of death from leukaemia associated with external radiation dose in over 75 000 UK nuclear industry workers with that for adult Japanese atomic bomb survivors reported by UNSCEAR in 1988, suggested that the estimated excess relative risk per Sv in the two populations was similar (ratio of risks = 1.1, 90% confidence interval +0.2 to +3.1). The further analysis described here, which compares leukaemia risk in the workers with that predicted by the linear term of ...
