||Study of two cohorts of workers exposed to methyl methacrylate in acrylic sheet production
||Dec. 2000, Vol.57, No.12, p.810-817. 16 ref.
||A study among workers at two British plants to investigate patterns of mortality (in particular, mortality from colon and rectal cancer) after exposure to methyl methacrylate (MMA). The mean duration of exposure was 7.6 years at a mean exposure of 13.2ppm, although exposures in some work groups were as high as 100ppm. The study provided no clear evidence that employment at the factories or exposure to MMA had adversely affected the mortality of workers.
