  1. 1. Monitoring of occupational exposure to antineoplastic drugs

    University dissertation from Division of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, and Psychiatric Epidemiology Department of Laboratory Medicine Lund University

    Author : Maria Hedmer; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; industrial medicine; Occupational health; plasma; urine; renal clearance; risk evaluation; biological monitoring; air monitoring; wipe sampling; occupational exposure; ifosfamide; antineoplastic drugs; cyclophosphamide; Yrkesmedicin; arbetsmiljömedicin;

    Abstract : Antineoplastic drugs are commonly used in the medical treatment of cancer and some other diseases. Workplaces e.g. hospital pharmacies and wards where antineoplastic drugs are used are contaminated with these drugs and health care workers are therefore at risk of getting occupationally exposed.

    Abstract : Plasma from workers at an electronic dismantling plant were analysed for tri- to heptaBDEs (brominated diphenyl ethers), during 18 months. The different exposed groups showed concentrations ranging from 0.06to 2.8 ng g-1 (l. READ MORE

  3. 3. Occupational exposure during production of wood pellets in Sweden

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Katja Hagström; Örebro universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Occupational hygiene; wood dust; resin acids; VOC; variability; determinant of exposure; overexposure; dermal exposure; MEDICINE Social medicine Public health medicine research areas Occupational medicine; MEDICIN Socialmedicin Folkhälsomedicinska forskningsområden Yrkesmedicin; Enviromental Science; Miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : The aims of the studies underlying this thesis were to assess workers’ air exposure to wood dust and various chemicals, and to evaluate the variability in exposure and occupational dermal exposure to resin acids during the production of wood pellets in Sweden. Personal air measurements of wood dust, monoterpenes, resin acids and nitrogen dioxide (as a marker of diesel exhaust), accompanied by area measurements of these substances, VOCs and carbon monoxide, were performed at up to ten plants.

  5. 5. Biomarkers of aromatic isocyanates in exposed workers

    University dissertation from Divison of Occupational and Environmental Medicine and Psychiatric Epidemiology

    Author : Pernilla Lind; [1997]

    Abstract : The aromatic isocyanates, toluene diisocyanate (TDI) and methylenediphenyl diisocyanate (MDI), are used in the production of polyurethane (PUR) foams, paints, elastomers and glues. The use of isocyanates is increasing, and exposure to isocyanates is the most common cause of occupational asthma. READ MORE
