Título Effects of beclomethasone exposure in industry
Información bibliográfica Oct. 1982, Vol.32, No.4, p.196-200. Illus. 15 ref.
Resumen Men and women engaged in production of aerosols of beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP), a potent corticosteroid, were studied. Marked vasoconstriction with subsequent rebound vasodilation and opportunistic mycosis (pityriasis versicolor, pharyngeal candidosis) were observed. There were no systemic effects. Improvement of the extraction system reduced air steroid levels from 14 to 0.2µg/m3, and there was a 4-fold drop in the number of skin swabs positive for BDP.
