Despite these limitations, we detected increases in mortality from hemato- and lymphopoietic cancers with increasing internal radiation dose among RAI employees, a finding also reported by two previous studies of nuclear workers exposed to plutonium (4,5,18).
The observed excess rate of total cancer mortality in workers in the highest dose category ([is greater than or equal to] 30 mSv) (Table 4) is due entirely to deaths from cancers of the hemato- and lymphopoietic system and upper aerodigestive tract.
In summary, despite the small sample size and relatively low lung doses recorded for workers at RAI, this study has demonstrated a dose-response association between cumulative internal radiation dose and mortality from hemato- and lymphopoietic cancers.
