||Prevention of risks from occupational exposure to antineoplastic drugs. Consensus document
||Prevenzione dei rischi da esposizione professionale a chemoterapici antiblastici. Documento di consenso [in Italian]|
||May-June 1996, Vol.87, No.3, p.194-200 (Italian), 201-206 (English).
||This consensus document prepared by Italian research institutes deals with the pathological effects of antineoplastic drugs in patients and occupationally exposed subjects. Preventive measures are discussed, including exposure assessment, health surveillance of workers and guidance for workers' protection (information and training programmes). A particular hazard is that of deformed foetuses, due to the teratogenic effects of these drugs on exposed pregnant women. The importance of preventive measures in the pharmaceutical industry is stressed, in particular those applying to packaging and storage of these products.
