Abstract

Various occupations have been associated with an elevated NHL risk but results have been inconsistent across studies. To investigate occupational risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and four common NHL subtypes with particular focus on occupations of a priori interest. We conducted a pooled analysis of 10,046 cases and 12,025 controls from 10 NHL studies participating in the InterLymph Consortium. We harmonized the occupational coding using the 1968 International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO) and grouped occupations previously associated with NHL into 25 a priori groups. Odds ratios (OR), adjusted for center, age and sex were determined for NHL overall and the subtypes diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), follicular lymphoma (FL), chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL) and peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL). We confirmed previously reported positive associations between NHL and farming occupations (field crop/vegetable farm workers OR = 1.26; 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.05, 1.51; general farm workers OR = 1.19, 95% CI: 1.03, 1.37), and with specific occupations as women's hairdressers (OR = 1.34; 95% CI: 1.02, 1.74), charworkers/cleaners (OR = 1.17; 95% CI: 1.01, 1.36), spray-painters (OR = 2.07; 95% CI: 1.30, 3.29), electrical wiremen (OR = 1.24; 95% CI: 1.00, 1.54), and carpenters (OR = 1.42; 95% CI: 1.04, 1.93). We observed subtype specific associations for DLBCL and CLL/SLL in women's hairdressers and for DLBCL and PTCL in textile workers. Our pooled analysis of 10 international studies adds to evidence suggesting that farming, hairdressing, and textile industry-related exposures may contribute to NHL risk. Associations with women's hairdresser and textile occupations may be specific for certain NHL subtypes.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 8. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 07 September 2019.
All research outputs
#2,158,954
of 13,514,491 outputs
Outputs from Environmental Health Perspectives
#1,998
of 6,788 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#43,949
of 239,010 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Environmental Health Perspectives
#18
of 52 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,514,491 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 83rd percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 6,788 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 14.4. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 70% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 239,010 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 52 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 65% of its contemporaries.
