||Mutagens in urine sampled repetitively from municipal refuse incinerator workers and water treatment workers
||Dec. 1992, Vol.37, No.4, p.483-494. 19 ref.
||The frequency of mutagens was measured in three urine samples collected at weekly intervals from each of 37 workers in four refuse incinerators and 35 (control) workers from eight water treatment plants. Comparison of the first urine samples showed that incinerator workers had a significantly increased risk of both direct-acting mutagens and promutagens compared to the water treatment workers. There was no significant difference between the two groups for the second and third samples. Factors that influence production of mutagenic compounds during refuse incineration and subsequent worker exposure are discussed.
