Title Chromosome aberrations and sister chromatid exchanges in Swedish paint industry workers.
Bibliographic information Dec. 1980, Vol.6, NO.4, p.291-298. 35 ref.
Abstract 17 workers exposed to organic solvents and 17 matched controls were studied. There were no differences in the frequency of sister chromatid exchanges (SCE) and no correlation between xylene or toluene or total solvent exposure and SCE frequency. No differences were found in the 5 most exposed workers and their controls.
