||Studies on the biomonitoring of butadiene and related compounds are reviewed. Sources of exposure to butadiene (carcinogenic in mice and rats) include cigarette smoke and emissions from butadiene production, storage, transport and use; the most likely route of uptake in inhalation. Biomonitoring is based on chemical analysis of butadiene in exhaled breath, levels of butadiene metabolites (epoxides) in blood and urine, or adducts of metabolites with DNA or blood proteins. Biomonitoring methods need to be developed for diepoxybutane and other reactive butadiene metabolites.
