Título Long-term exposure of factory workers to dichlorvos (DDVP) insecticide.
Información bibliográfica Feb. 1974, Vol.28, No.2, p.72-76. Illus. 12 ref.
Resumen In the course of the production and processing of a dichlorvos (DDVP) releasing product, 13 adult workers of both sexes were exposed to an average concentration of approximately 0.7 mg/m3 air. Extensive laboratory tests carried out on these persons during the course of a one-year exposure period showed moderate to slight inhibition of the cholinesterases only. The results of other tests and of regular medical examinations were entirely normal. It was concluded that the inhibition of the cholinesterases did not correspond with any untoward effect and that no health hazard existed.
