Resumen The objective of this case-control study was to determine whether ethylene glycol monoethyl ether acetate (EGEEA) was a hepatotoxin in exposed workers. A total of 29 workers from a silk-screening shop, using EGEEA as the major cleaning solvent, were recruited as high exposure group, while a group of 57 workers with indirect and low exposure to EGEEA were selected as the comparison group. Air concentrations of EGEEA were measured by 8-h personal sampling. The mean of air EGEEA concentration in the high and low exposure groups was 7.41-16.5 ppm and 0.07-3.62 ppm respectively. Liver function profiles in both male and female EGEEA-exposed workers were not significantly different from those in the comparison group. Furthermore, no significant change in hepatic function was noted after a two-year follow-up study of these EGEEA-exposed workers. These findings suggest that EGEEA is not a hepatotoxin in this workplace.
