||1,2-Dibromoethane - Health-based calculated occupational cancer risk values
||Gezondheidsraad, Postbus 16052, 2500 BB Den Haag, Netherlands, 1999. 32p. 21 ref.
||1,2-Dibromoethane is used as a fumigant. Additional lifetime cancer risk for 1,2-dibromoethane amounts to 4 x 10-5 for 40 years of occupational exposure to 0.002mg/m3, and 4 x 10-3 for 40 years of occupational exposure to 0.2mg/m3 Main topics covered: carcinogenicity studies and selection of the study suitable for risk estimation in occupational situations; carcinogenic activity in experimental animals, life-time low-dose exposure; health risk to humans; calculation of the health-based calculated occupational cancer risk values; existing occupational exposure limits; toxicity profile (eyes, skin and respiratory tract irritation, nose metaplasia and hepatotoxic effects).
