||In 46 persons, bromsulfalein clearance was followed during a season of work with pesticides. The mean value of bromsulfalein clearance (8,91%) was lower than that of a referent group of healthy persons (14,5%). In 14 of the exposed group the clearance values were under 10%. The changes in clearance do not correlate closely with other indices of liver function. Bromsulfalein metabolism, like pesticide metabolism, probably involves the glutathione-S-transferase system. This makes the measurement of bromsulfalein clearance useful in assessing the effect of pesticides on persons who work with them.
