Título Special occupational hazard review for DDT.
Información bibliográfica DHEW (NIOSH) Publication No.78-200, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 4676 Columbia Parkway, Cincinnati, Ohio 45226, USA, Sep. 1978. 205p. Illus. 318 ref.
Resumen This literature review, together with other reviews and criteria documents on insecticides, will form the bases for NIOSH recommendations for international occupational health standards. Contents: extent of exposure (use, production, metabolism, pharmacokinetics); toxic effects in animals (acute and chronic toxicity, organ-specific toxicity, effects on reproduction, teratogenesis, carcinogenesis, mutagenesis, cytotoxic effects); human effects (case reports, volunteer studies, exposed workers, epidemiological studies in the general population); dose-response relations. It is recommended that DDT be controlled and handled in the workplace as a suspected occupational carcinogen and that exposure be reduced to a minimum. The air concentration should not exceed 0.5mg/m3. Skin contact should be avoided.
