Some data suggest that exposure to DDT and fumigants may be associated with permanent decline in neurobehavioral functioning and increase in psychiatric symptoms, but, due to the limited number of studies available and the(More)
Industrial exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and internal dose were investigated in 80 worker exposed for many years to PCB mixtures with a 42% chlorine content (Pyralene 3010 and Apirolio). PCBs were determined by liquid gas chromatography on samples taken from workroom air, workroom surfaces and tools, the palms of the hand, and the blood of(More)
The aim of this study was to elucidate the site and detailed nature of peripheral nerve damage induced in the rat by chronic CS2 inhalation exposure in the light of the relationship between pathological and neurophysiological data. Adult male rats were exposed to 700 ppm of CS2 2 h/d, 5 d/week for 12 weeks and then followed-up for 18 weeks. The first(More)

METHODS A liver ultrasonography examination was conducted in 757 workers, some of whom had long standing service in the production of VCM(More)
This article reviews the biological indicators available for monitoring human neurotoxicity by exogenous chemicals with reference to the phases in which the neurotoxic process takes place, namely delivery, receptor-linkage, and toxicodynamic phase. Among the delivery phase tests, indicators are available for metals (lead, mercury) and some organic(More)
