OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to assess external and internal exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) of workers who are employed in a graphite-electrode producing plant. Additionally we wanted to contribute to the question of biological limit values in order to reduce exposure to tolerable levels. METHODS At five different working(More)
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are ubiquitous carcinogenic substances to which man is exposed in the environment and at certain workplaces. Estimation of the resulting health risk is therefore of great occupational-medical and environmental-medical importance. Determination of the DNA and protein adducts of PAHs is the most suitable way of(More)
The concentrations of 1-hydroxypyrene (1-HOPYR), and 1-, 2-, 3-, and 4-hydroxyphenanthrene (HOPHE) as metabolites of pyrene and phenanthrene, were measured in urine samples collected from 124 housewives (27 smokers and 97 non-smokers) living in Bottrop, an industrial city located in the Ruhr area in Germany. The urine samples were analyzed by a very(More)
