||Conclusions of this criteria document: exposure to thiourea can induce contact and photocontact allergies in humans. Thyroid hyperplasia was observed in exposed workers. Animal studies indicate that the major adverse effect is the inhibition of the thyroid gland function, although effects on lungs, liver haemopoietic system and kidney have also been described. Thiourea has mitogenic properties.
