Título Testicular function in DBCP exposed pesticide workers.
Información bibliográfica Mar. 1979, Vol.21, No.3, p.161-166. Illus. 10 ref.
Resumen Semen studies were performed in 107 men exposed to 1,2-dibromo-3-chloropropane and 35 controls. Exposure was evaluated semi-quantitatively, as a function of duration. There was a clear-cut difference between the 2 groups in both the distribution of sperm counts and the median counts. 13.1% of exposed workers were azoospermic, 16.8% were severely oligospermic, and 15.8% were mildly oligospermic (controls: 2.9%), 0, and 5.7% respectively). Biopsy of the most severe cases showed generalised absence of all spermatogenic activity, and the histological pattern suggested that the seminiferous tubules were the site of damage.
