Title Hydrocarbon exposure and glomerulonephritis: evidence from patients' occupations
Bibliographic information 26 Nov. 1983, No.8361, p.1214-1216. 6 ref.
Abstract In this statistical analysis of 124 glomerulonephritis victims, a significantly higher proportion of victims were occupationally exposed to hydrocarbons than would be expected from their relative numbers in the general population (46 observed against 28.6 expected). Occupational exposure factors suspected are organic solvents and fuels.
