||Medical examination of workers exposed to coke and graphite dusts with adsorbed polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon showed activation of the systems of lipid peroxidation, with an increased content of lipid peroxides and intense chemiluminescence in their blood. These changes were observed in workers without pulmonary disorders and with bronchitis of stages I and II. There was no decrease of serum tocopherol level in either group; a compensatory increase was observed in patients with stage I bronchitis and in workers without bronchopulmonary pathology. Under more intense impact of occupational factors as well as in later stages of the disease, exhaustion of the lipid antioxidant system was observed. Such studies can be used to detect workers at risk of developing chronic bronchitis and tumours of the bronchopulmonary system.
