The teleconference will take place May 26. It is the second part of a study on causes of death and testicular cancer cases among former IBM-Endicott workers.

NIOSH announced it will host a teleconference meeting to present the results of a study of birth defects in the children of former workers of the International Business Machines Corp. (IBM) facility in Endicott, N.Y. The meeting will be held on May 26 starting at 10 a.m. EDT.

This is the second part of a study that previously presented findings on causes of death and testicular cancer cases among the former workers. This portion of the study has been completed by NIOSH in conjunction with the New York State Department of Health.

A 2008 study that analyzed death records and work experience of peoples who worked at the IBM plant and died between 1969 and 2001 identifiied potential worker exposure to several known and suspected carcinogens and found significantly increased mortality due to melanoma and lymphoma in men and modestly increased mortality due to kidney cancer and brain cancer in men and breast cancer in women.
