Title Contact allergy to epoxy (meth)acrylates
Bibliographic information July 2009, Vol.61, No.1, p.9-21. Illus. 44 ref.
Abstract The objective of this study was to analyse patterns of allergic reactions to five epoxy acrylates and methacrylates in relation to exposure. The 1994-2008 patch test files at the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health were reviewed for possible mention of reactions to the five substances, and patients' medical records were reviewed for possible mention of exposure. Twenty-four patients had an allergic reaction to at least one of the studied substances. Further details are discussed and two case reports are presented.
