Title Toluene-exposed workers and chromosome aberrations.
Bibliographic information July 1980, Vol.6, No.4, p.775-781. 9 ref.
Abstract Peripheral blood lymphocytes from 32 rotogravure workers with daily toluene exposure were studied for chromosome aberrations and sister chromatid exchanges. Frequencies were not significantly different from those in 15 control subjects. There was a significant increase in sister chromatid exchanges in smokers of both groups as compared with non-smokers.
