||Conclusions of these criteria documents, translation of reports finalized in Dec. and Aug. 1992, respectively: no data are available on the acute effects of ethyl acrylate in humans; the substance acts as a sensitizer. An increased rate of cancer of the colon and rectum was observed among acrylate production plant workers with a high and prolonged exposure to a mixture of acrylates in the 1940s. Cases of skin irritation and sensitization have been reported in humans handling n-butyl acrylate. Epidemiological studies indicate a dose-dependent reduction in the sense of smell following exposure to these two substances.
