Title Reactivity in workers exposed to the chemical allergen tolylene diisocyanate
Original title Reaktivnost' organizma u rabotajuščih v kontakte s himičeskim allergenom toluilendiizocianatom [in Russian]
Bibliographic information May 1987, No.5, p.27-30. 4 ref.
Abstract Human body reactivity was studied in 125 healthy workers 20-40 years old, who had been exposed regularly or occasionally to tolylene diisocyanate (TDI). Exposure to TDI was associated with immune, haematological and biochemical shifts, the development of specific sensitisation during the first year of work and the subsequent development of general adaptive syndrome.
