||Chest pain in rubber chemical workers exposed to carbon disulphide and methaemoglobin formers
||Aug. 1984, Vol.41, No.3, p.296-304. Illus. 24 ref.
||This study of chest pain and/or coronary heart disease (CHD) was carried out on 94 rubber-chemical workers exposed to carbon disulfide (CS2) and methaemoglobin-forming aromatic amines, and on 87 controls. Matching the workers and controls for known CHD risk factors, the association between the chemicals and diseases studied could be measured. Chest pain and angina pectoris were significantly related to exposure. Abnormal ECGs were more numerous in the exposed group, but the difference was not significant. An acute effect of exposure on the heart cannot be demonstrated.
