Abstract:

To measure the association between occupational jet fuel exposure and invasive cancer occurrence in the U.S. Air Force USAF. Cancer data from January 1, 1989 to December 31, 2003 were extracted from a U.S. military cancer registry and linked to information from the Air Force Personnel Center. Based on job descriptions, et fuel exposure was categorized as high, moderate or low. Conditional logistic regressions were used to calculate odds ratios for fuel exposure with cancer occurrence as the primary outcome of interest. The odds ratios for cancer occurrence in the moderate and high exposure groups were 0.84 95 Cl 0.65-1.09 and 0.73 95 Cl 0.32-1.64, respectively, when compared to the low exposure group. A null association was observed between occupational jet fuel exposure and invasive cancer in the USAF.
