Objective l.jpg

Objective

Estimation of the risk of environmental arsenic exposure from power plant emissions for non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC)


Estimation of the risk of environmental arsenic exposure l.jpg

Estimation of the risk of environmental arsenic exposure

  • Choose study design(s)

  • Assess exposure

  • Estimate risk

  • Discuss confounders

Estimate by Distance to the Power Plant

  • Environmental As exposure

  • NMSC incidence

    Associate As exposure with NMSC risk& control for covariates

Environmental Arsenic Exposure

  • Historical As exposure

    Air pollution modelling

    (Colvile et al. 2001)

  • Current As exposure

    Measurement of As in soil, house dust

    (Keegan et al. 2002)

Population based case control study l.jpg

Population-based Case-Control Study

  • 264 NMSC cases (1996-99)response rate 80%

  • 286 population controls

    response rate 72%

    Matching by sex, age


Statistical power l.jpg

Statistical Power

  •  = 5% one-sided

  • = 20% (power 80%)

  • controls exposed to As=10%

  • N cases = 264

  • N controls = 286

  • RR to be detected >= 1.9

NMSC Risk Estimation

  • Logistic regression

Exposure Assessment and Risk Estimationfor Environmental Arsenic

  • Dietary habits

  • Residential history


Arsenic exposure from dietary habits l.jpg

Arsenic Exposurefrom Dietary Habits

  • AsNut1 = Σ w(f )* I(f)25 food items f: w(f) food frequencies I(f) annual As intake

  • AsNut2 = AsNut1 * s if self-support s= 2, else 1

Environmental arsenic exposure nmsc risk l.jpg

Environmental Arsenic Exposure & NMSC Risk

  • Elevated NMSC incidence in the vicinity of the plant.

  • As exposure from dietary and residential data are associated with excess risk.

  • Residual confounding can not be excluded.
