  1. 1. Fine and ultrafine particle exposure: Health effects and biomarkers

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Yiyi Xu; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : particulate matter; Occupational Exposure : adverse effects; mitochondrial dna; telomere length;

    Abstract : Particle, especially fine and ultrafine particle exposure has been linked to lower airway infections, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), ischemic heart disease, stroke and cancer. The underlying mechanisms are under active investigation, and are still not fully understood. READ MORE

  2. 2. Setting occupational exposure limits Practices and outcomes of toxicological risk assessment

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Linda Schenk; KTH.; Södertörns högskola.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry Toxicology; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi Toxikologi; Assessment Factor; DNEL; Euroepan Union; Occupational Exposure Limit; REACH; Risk Assessment; Regulatory Toxicology; SCOEL; Uncertainty Factor;

    Abstract : Occupational Exposure Limits (OELs) are used as an important regulatory instrument to protect workers’ health from adverse effects of chemical exposures. The main objective of this thesis is to study risk assessment practices in the setting of OEL in order to produce knowledge that will help improve the consistency and transparency of OELs. READ MORE

  3. 3. Systemic effects of occupational exposure to arsenic with special reference to peripheral circulation and nerve function

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Birgitta Json Lagerkvist; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [1989]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Arsenic toxicity; Cold-induced vasospasm; Finger systolic pressure; Nerve conduction velocity; Occupational exposure; Raynaud s phenomenon; Serotonin antagonist;

    Abstract : Smelter workers who were exposed to air-borne arsenic for a mean of 23 years, and age-matched referents, were examined with clinical, physiological, and neurophysiological methods. Exposure to arsenic in workroom air was estimated to have been around the Swedish occupational limits, which were 500 yg/m before 1975 and 50 yg/ra thereafter. READ MORE

  4. 4. Occupational exposure to trichloramine and trihalomethanes : adverse respiratory and ocular effects among Swedish indoor swimming pool workers

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro university

    Author : Jessica Westerlund; Örebro universitet.; [2016]

    Abstract : Occupational exposure in swimming pool facilities related to disinfection by-products (DBPs) has been an issue for the last 15 years. Trichloramine (NCl3) and trihalomethanes (THMs) are DBPs formed in swimming pool water following a reaction between organic matter containing nitrogen or organic or inorganic matter, and chlorine.

  5. 5. Nanoparticles: Characterization and exposure metrics

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro university

    Author : Linus Ludvigsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SEM; TEM; Nanoparticles; Aerosols; occupational exposure; CNTs; Fysicumarkivet A:2014:Ludvigsson;

    Abstract : Exposure to aerosol nanoparticles has always been present in the evolution of humans, and thus has the human body developed ways of dealing with particles that enters the body. However with the emerging nanotech industry, new types of nanoparticles are being produced and used. READ MORE
