  1. 1. Monitoring of occupational exposure to antineoplastic drugs

    Författare :Maria Hedmer; Avdelningen för arbets- och miljömedicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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. Human Exposure Biomarkers of Some Commonly Used Pesticides

    Författare :Moosa Faniband; Avdelningen för arbets- och miljömedicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; exposure biomarker; Biomonitoring; Pesticides; human experimental exposures; Mass Spectrometry;

    Sammanfattning : The use of pesticides has caused pollution of surface and groundwater, soil and air across the world. Many pesticides cause health effects in humans. General populations are exposed to some degree and diet is reported to be a main source of exposure. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Biological and air monitoring of exposure to isocyanates

    Författare :Carl Johan Sennbro; Avdelningen för arbets- och miljömedicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; industrial medicine; Occupational health; asthma; protein adducts; polyurethane; biomarkers; occupational exposure; DBA; ICA; NDI; MDI; TDI; Diisocyanates; Isocyanates; Biomonitoring; Air monitoring; arbetsmiljömedicin; Yrkesmedicin;

    Sammanfattning : Exposure to isocyanates may induce disorders in the airways of workers. Therefore, application, development and validation of methods for exposure assessment is of great importance. LÄS MER

  4. 4. From emission sources to human tissues: modelling the exposure to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances

    Författare :Melissa Ines Gomis; Ian Cousins; Robin Vestergren; Hermann Fromme; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PFAAs; PFOA; PFOS; fluorinated alternatives; human exposure; pharmacokinetic modelling; hazard assessment; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Produced since the 1950’s, per- and polyfluoroalkyl (PFASs) substances are persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic compounds that are ubiquitous in the environment. Being proteinophilic with a tendency to partition to protein-rich tissues, PFASs have been found in human serum worldwide and in wildlife with a predominance of long-chain perfluoroalkyl carboxilic acids (C7-C14 PFCAs) and perfluoroalkyl sulfonic acids (C6-C9 PFSAs).

  5. 5. Occupational health risks in dentistry - musculoskeletal disorders and neuropathy in relation to exposure to physical workload, vibrations and mercury

    Författare :Ingrid Åkesson; Avdelningen för arbets- och miljömedicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; prospective follow-up study .; cross-sectional; inclinometer; electrogoniometer; EMG; physical exposure; tactilometry; physical examination; diagnoses; neck upper limb; sensorineural; Key words: Dentistry; musculoskeletal; Occupational health; industrial medicine; Yrkesmedicin; arbetsmiljömedicin;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of the thesis was to focus on the occupational health risks in dentistry with emphasis on musculoskeletal disorders in the neck and upper limbs and neuropathy in the hands, in relation to exposure to physical workload, vibration and mercury. An increased high frequency of long-lasting and wide-spread musculoskeletal symptoms in the neck and shoulder regions (58-75% during the past 12 months) was found in dentists and dental hygienists compared to different referent groups; furthermore, wrist/hand (46-59%) and hip (19-27%) disorders as well in female dentists and dental hygienists.
