The Incidence of Breast and Other Cancers among Female Flight Attendants—New—National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)—Flight attendants experience exposures which may affect breast cancer risk including exposure to elevated levels of cosmic radiation and circadian rhythm disruption. This study will evaluate the incidence of breast and other cancers among a cohort of approximately 10,000 women who were employed as flight attendants.
The occurrence of breast and other cancers will be obtained from death certificates and from telephone interviews with living women and next-of-kin of deceased women. Each interview will take approximately 60 minutes to complete. Medical records will be requested to confirm cancer diagnoses. The primary analysis will evaluate the risk of breast and other cancers associated with occupational exposure within the cohort. The secondary analysis will compare the incidence of breast and other cancers in the cohort to that in the general population, with adjustment for factors which might increase cancer risk in the cohort independent of occupational exposure to cosmic radiation and circadian rhythm disruption. The annualized total burden is 10,525 hours.
|Respondents||Number of respondents||Number of responses/ respondent||Avg. burden per response (in hrs.)|
