Título Renal effects of naphtha exposure among automotive workers
Información bibliográfica June 1993, Vol.35, No.6, p.617-622. 21 ref.
Resumen A part of a study on health effects of naphtha exposure, the association between naphtha exposure and urinary excretion of total protein, albumin, β-N-acetyl-D-glucosaminidase (β-NAG), and β2-microglobulin was assessed prospectively over one year among 248 workers (of whom 181 were retested one year later) at an automotive plant that used naphtha to calibrate fuel injectors. Naphtha air concentration at the plant ranged 6-790mg/m3, while length of exposure by the worker ranged 0.8-7.3 years. Overall, there was no significant effect of naphtha exposure on renal function, with the exception of a change in β-NAG which was positively associated with changes in recent naphtha exposures (p=0.009).
