Título A cross sectional study of employees with potential occupational exposure to ethylene oxide
Información bibliográfica Nov. 1984, Vol.41, No.4, p.492-498. 17 ref.
Resumen This study was conducted on 84 workers potentially exposed to ethylene oxide (EO) in the chemical manufacturing industry and on individually matched controls. The exposure level was estimated to be below the TLV of 10ppm, and mostly below 1ppm. There was no significant difference between the 2 groups in the results of haematological and biochemical tests. There was a significant (p=0.035) increase in the prevalence of proteinuria among workers exposed to EO.
