The studies of MDS have relied either on self-reported pesticide exposure, which is subject to recall bias in retrospective studies, or exposure assigned according to occupational title, which offers little information on the level of exposure or types of pesticides used. A study conducted in an agricultural region of Greece asked comparatively detailed questions about pesticide use history (Kokouva et al. 2011). 8). 1) (Kokouva et al. 2011). Additional information supporting pesticides as potentially causal for MDS are epidemiologic associations with other myeloid cell malignancies.

Bjork et al. 3 % increased risk of MDS per pack-year of exposure, amounting to an excess risk of 71 % (95 % CI = 3–180) associated with 40 pack-years of smoking (Bjork et al. 2009). Several studies evaluated risk factors for subgroups of MDS cases classified by histologic subtype or chromosomal abnormalities. One study found that RAEB/RAEB-t patients were more likely to be current smokers than RA/RARS patients (18 % vs. 10 %) (Strom et al. 2005) and that MDS patients with chromosomal abnormalities were more likely to be ever smokers than those with normal karyotype (73 % vs.
