Myelodysplastic Syndrome and Benzene Exposure Among Petroleum Workers: An International Pooled Analysis
Background Benzene at high concentrations is known to cause acute myeloid leukemia (AML), but its relationship with other lymphohematopoietic (LH) cancers remains uncertain, particularly at lowExpand

An interaction of benzene metabolites reproduces the myelotoxicity observed with benzene exposure.
Benzene-induced myelotoxicity can be reproduced by the coadministration of two principal metabolites, phenol and hydroquinone. Coadministration of phenol (75 mg/kg) and hydroquinone (25-75 mg/kg)Expand

Peripheral blood effects in benzene-exposed workers.
The hematotoxic effects of benzene exposure may be important in the occurrence of subsequent health effects. We sought to provide further information on peripheral blood effects by studying 928Expand
