||Deaths and tumours among rotogravure printers exposed to toluene
||June 1990, Vol.47, No.6, p.372-379. Illus. 24 ref.
||A cohort of 1020 rotogravure printers exposed to toluene and employed for a minimum period of 3 months during 1925-85 was studied. Estimated yearly average air levels reached a maximum of about 450ppm in the 1940s and 1950s but were only about 30ppm by the mid-1980s. Exposure to benzene had occurred up to the beginning of the 1960s. Compared with regional rates, total mortality did not increase during the observation period 1952-86 (129 observed deaths v 125 expected). There was no increase in mortality from non-malignant diseases of the lungs, nervous system, or gastrointestinal and urinary tracts. Among the specific cancers, only those of the respiratory tract were significantly increased (16 v 9). There were no dose response relations with cumulated toluene dose (ppm years). There were no significant increases of tumours at other sites, including leukaemias/lymphomas/myelomas.
