3-Chloro-2-hydroxypropylmercapturic acid and α-chlorohydrin as biomarkers of occupational exposure to epichlorohydrin.

Abstract

Until now no urinary biomarker of exposure was available to assess human exposure to epichlorohydrin (ECH). For this purpose the urinary excretion of mercapturic acids and α-chlorohydrin (α-CH), which are potential metabolites of ECH in humans was investigated. This study was undertaken in a chemical plant in which ECH is used in the production of glycidyl… (More)
