Bibliographic information Dec. 1980, No.12, p.33-36. 7 ref.
Abstract Viral hepatitis occurs in a more severe and protracted form in workers who have been occupationally exposed to toxic chemicals for long periods. Liver functions are more extensively impaired. Where the disease remits, biochemical levels are slow to normalise. Greater length of service correlates with more harmful sequelae.
