Title Impact of orthonaphthoquinone diazide photolysis products on copyists' health
Original title Vlijanie produktov fotoliza ortonaftohinondiazida na sostojanie zdorov'ja rabočih-kopirovščikov [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Sep. 1987, No.9, p.38-40. 2 ref.
Abstract Medical examinations of 26 copyists exposed to products of photolysis of orthonaphthoquinone diazide and 14 workers of a control group were carried out. The results showed deviation from the standard prothrombin time in copyists. Correlation of blood coagulation disorders with exposure to photolysis products was experimentally confirmed in laboratory animals. Photolysis products did not cause skin allergies and had no effect on worker's immunologic reactivity or peripheral blood indices. Examination of the state of the copyists' coagulation system during periodic medical examinations is recommended.
