||Organophosphorus pesticides: An epidemiological study
||World Health Organization, Regional Office for Europe, Environmental Health Service, Scherfigsvej 8, 2100 K°benhavn, Denmark, 1987. 138p. 39 ref.
||This report on organophosphorus pesticides is composed of two parts. One part (the core protocol) was developed because of the need, pointed out by earlier WHO studies, for epidemiological assessment of the effects of long-term, low-level exposures and for improved surveillance, monitoring and control of toxic exposures. The core protocol provides the framework and standardised methods for observing and documenting health impairment in workers and other populations exposed to organophosphorus compounds. The information collected is meant to contribute to the measurement of exposure-effect relationships. The other part of the report serves as a companion document and summarises preliminary findings and practical experience gained from the pilot phase of the core protocol by participating institutions in Europe.
