  1. 1. Monitoring of occupational exposure to antineoplastic drugs

    Detta är en avhandling från Division of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, and Psychiatric Epidemiology Department of Laboratory Medicine Lund University

    Författare :Maria Hedmer; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :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;

    Sammanfattning : 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.

  2. 2. Biomarkers of aromatic isocyanates in exposed workers

    Detta är en avhandling från Divison of Occupational and Environmental Medicine and Psychiatric Epidemiology

    Författare :Pernilla Lind; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1997]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adducts; biomarkers; exposure; occupational; methylenediphenyl diisocyanate; toluene diisocyanate; amines; isocyanates; polyurethane; Gas chromatography; mass spectrometry; Occupational health; industrial medicine; Yrkesmedicin; arbetsmiljömedicin;

    Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Isocyanates - assessment of human exposure

    Detta är en avhandling från Division of Working Environment, Lunds Institute of Technology, S-221 00, Lund, Sweden

    Författare :Håkan Tinnerberg; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1996]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp; Analytical chemistry; Analytisk kemi; exposure; biomonitoring; occupational; isophorone diisocyanate; hexamethylene diisocyanate; methylenediphenyl diisocyanate; toluene diisocyanate; amines; aminoisocyanates; polyurethane; isocyanates; Liquid chromatography; Environmental technology; mass spectrometry;

    Sammanfattning : Isocyanates are used mainly for manufacturing of polyurethane (PUR) foams, lacquers, elastomers and glues. The production of PUR exceeds 2 million tonnes per year and is increasing. Occupational exposure to isocyanates are associated with respiratory disorders. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Levels of brominated flame retardants in humans and their environment : occupational and home exposure

    Detta är en avhandling från Örebro : Örebro universitetsbibliotek

    Författare :Marie Karlsson; Örebro universitet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PBDE; BTBPE; DeBDethane; plasma; air; dust; Northern fulmar; egg; household; occupational exposure; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Polyurethane - occupational exposure, biomarkers and symptoms

    Detta är en avhandling från (Margareta Littorin), Department of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, University Hospital, S- 221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Författare :Margareta Littorin; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2002]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; spray; polyurethane; nose; metabolites; lung function ; lower airways; inflammation; heat; glue; genetic polymorphism; di isocyanate; Antibodies; biomarkers; Occupational health; industrial medicine; Yrkesmedicin; arbetsmiljömedicin; symptoms;

    Sammanfattning : Isocyanates may cause occupational asthma, rhinitis, and hypersensitivity pneumonitis. However, the mechanisms behind initiation of the disorders and the relations between exposure and effect are insufficiently elucidated. Means to biomonitor exposure and risk would be valuable. LÄS MER
