Assessing the Risks of Airborne Pollutants 17 • Proportional risk model (Garshick et al. 1987). The second lung cancer risk estimate using this data is developed assuming the railroad workers were exposed to 500 Ilg/m3 for 40 h per week. 016 cancers/yr of diesel x 500 /lg/m3 x 40 h/wk X X 70 yr X 10 5 cancers/yr = 950 lung cancers/yr (95% confidence limit: 100-1900) • Proportional risk model based on intergroup comparisons with a maximum likelihood estimate (Harris 1983). 35 X 10-4 increased lifetime risk X 70 yr X 1 X 105 cancers/yr Ilg/m3 for 1 yr 250 lung cancers/yr = • Absolute risk model (Cuddihy et al.

However, it follows that mechanisms of carcinogenesis (in company with a demonstrated cancer outcome) cannot be studied at the exposure levels of concern for risk estimation purposes. o. G. Cuddihy, We. Griffith, and lL. Mauderly Faced with this dilemma, one alternative is to attempt to study surrogate measures or markers of the dose of diesel exhaust to critical biological units, be it macromolecules such as deoxyribonucleic acid, or specific cell types, and then determine the relationship between exposure (concentration and duration) and the measure of dose.
