||Increased isotransferrin ratio and reduced erythrocyte and platelet volumes in blood from thermoplastic industry workers
||Aug. 1990, Vol.34, No.4, p.391-397. Illus. 31 ref.
||Ten women (aged 31-61 years) and five men (aged 20-59 years) occupationally exposed to welding fumes of polyacetate containing diethylphthalate in a thermoplastic industry were studied. They had been employed 1-33 years (median: 11 years). Seven women (aged 35-55) and eight men (aged 26-73) acted as unexposed controls. The exposed persons showed increased isotransferrin ratio in blood serum and reduced volumes of erythrocytes and platelets in blood.
