Abstract Workers engaged in the production and processing of phenol-formaldehyde resins had elevated blood and urine levels of pyruvic acid. These elevated levels probably reflected metabolic disturbances resulting from phenol exposure. Administration of the title vitamins in daily doses of 0.2 (riboflavin) to 400 (P group) milligrams for 1 month restored pyruvate levels to normal.
