||Gezondheidsraad, Postbus 16052, 2500 BB Den Haag, Netherlands, 1999. 35p. 29 ref.
||Metronidazole is an active substance used in the treatment of trichomoniasis. Additional lifetime cancer risk for metronidazole amounts to 4 x 10-5 for 40 years of occupational exposure to 0.12µg/m3, and 4 x 10-3 for 40 years of occupational exposure to 12µg/m3. Main topics covered: carcinogenicity studies and selection of the study suitable for risk estimation in occupational situations; estimation of the potential risk of cancer under workplace exposure conditions on the basis of epidemiologic data; existing occupational exposure limits; toxicity profile.
