Bibliographic information European Centre for Ecotoxicology and Toxicology of Chemicals, Avenue E. Van Nieuwenhuyse 4, Bte. 6, 1160 Bruxelles, Belgium, Aug. 1995. 350p. Illus. Approx. 550 ref.
Abstract This report is an update of a previous ECETOC report (see CIS 85-1358). It includes a larger number of glycol ethers, presents updated relevant toxicological information in animal and man, and reviews the knowledge of mechanisms underlying the observed toxicology. Contents: haematological and testicular effects; nephrotoxicity; hepatotoxicity; lymphatic tissue and immunotoxicity; neurological effects; genotoxicity and carcinogenicity; developmental and reproductive effects; absorption, distribution, metabolism and elimination; human exposure (general population and occupational exposure, air monitoring, biological monitoring); human health effects (haemotological, effects behavioural and neurological effects, reproductive effects, other effects); exposure limits; substance profiles.
