The purpose of the present study was to corroborate or refute earlier findings that spouses of stainless steel welders have an increased risk of spontaneous abortion.METHODS: The occurrence of spontaneous abortion among 2520 pregnancies of spouses of 1715 married metal workers from 1977 through 1987 was examined. Occupational histories were collected with a postal questionnaire in a previous study.

The risk estimate was robust to adjustment for potential confounding effects of maternal age and parity and male smoking and alcohol consumption.CONCLUSIONS: This study does not corroborate earlier findings that spouses of stainless steel welders have increased risk of spontaneous abortion. A reanalysis indicated that earlier findings were probably biased because the job exposure of male metal workers is apparently modified by the outcome of their partners' first pregnancy.",
