||Occupational allergic dermatitis due to acrylates in Lodz
||June 1996, Vol.34, No.6, p.419-422. 11 ref.
||Among 1619 suspected occupational dermatitis patients examined during 1990-1994 in Lodz, Poland, sensitivity to acrylates was diagnosed in nine individuals (four dental technicians, four dentists, and one textile printer). The most common sensitizers were ethyleneglycol dimethacrylate, methyl methacrylate, 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate and triethyleneglycol dimethacrylate. Compared to dental technicians, dentists were sensitive to a greater number of acrylate and methacrylate allergens and to other allergens including metals and rubber additives. Dental technicians were sensitive almost exclusively to methacrylates, and the textile printer only to acrylates.
