Título Study of abnormal laboratory findings in workers exposed to diazo developer chemicals.
Información bibliográfica Aug. 1975, Vol.17, No.8, p.502-505. 4 ref.
Resumen Report on studies in 9 men at an Armed Forces Station in whom signs of liver disease (elevated serum bilirubin and relative eosinophilia, dark urine) were found on medical examination. The only common factor appeared to be work near a copying machine which used a diazo developing process involving phenolic compounds (hydroquinone and resorcinol had been reported to cause liver abnormalities) and several other substances. Study was extended to 4 further centres: the strongest association observed was between mixing the diazo developer powder and relative eosinophilia. The relationship appears to be confined to laboratory results as distinct from clinical illness, but its nature is unclear.
