Title Neurohumoral regulation of adaptation processes in workers exposed to toluene diisocyanate (TDI)
Original title Nejrogumoral'naja reguljacija adaptacionnyh processov u rabočih, podvergajuščihsja vozdejstviju toluilendiizocianata [in Russian]
Bibliographic information July 1988, No.7, p.22-23. 5 ref.
Abstract The nature of neurohumoral regulation was studied in 125 healthy workers, aged 20-40yrs, with different length of service and TDI exposure levels. Adrenal gland activity and some haematological parameters were determined. Neurohumoral regulation of adaptation processes in TDI-exposed persons seemed to display some cyclicity, somehow related to the length of service. Two early regulatory phases (service up to 3yrs) had common features unrelated to the exposure levels, while after 3yrs of employment some dissimilarities evolved which did depend on the TDI exposure levels.
