Título Cytogenetic, immunological, and haematological effects in workers in an ethylene oxide manufacturing plant
Información bibliográfica Jan. 1985, Vol.42, No.1, p.19-26. 21 ref.
Resumen Samples of blood were collected over a period of up to 14 years from 36 workers engaged in ethylene oxide (EO) manufacture and from 35 matched controls. There was a small positive correlation between length of employment in EO manufacturing and frequency of chromosome breaks and with the percentage of neutrophils in a differential white blood cell count. There was a small negative correlation between length of employment and the percentage of lymphocytes. None of these correlations had a significance for health. No correlations were found between EO exposure and the other biological parameters investigated.
