Title Lower fiducial limit of urinary metabolite level as an index of excessive exposure to industrial chemicals.
Bibliographic information July 1973, Vol.30, No.3, p.289-292. Illus. 21 ref.
Abstract A discussion of the utilisation of the lower confidence limit (p=0.10), rather than the mean urinary metabolite level, as an index of excessive exposure to industrial chemicals. Cases of exposure to trichloroethylene, phenol and toluene are used to illustrate this approach.
