Título Urinary excretion of proteins and enzymes in workers exposed to hydrocarbons in a shoe factory
Información bibliográfica 1991, Vol.63, No.5, p.359-362. Illus. 18 ref.
Resumen A study was made of a group of women who had been exposed to petroleum naphtha (time-weighted average exposure 1,619mg/m3), toluene 81mg/m3) and ethylacetate (160mg/m3). Measurements were made of urinary enzyme activity and proteins and compared with those of age-matched controls. The only parameter that was significantly influenced by hydrocarbon exposure was the urinary activity of beta-N-acetylglucosaminidase. Although the health significance of this renal change in unclear, the results are in agreement with previous observations suggesting that long-term moderate exposure to solvents does not entail a significant risk for the development of nephrotoxicity.
