BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the health effects of exposure mainly to 1-bromopropane, which is an alternative to ozone-depleting solvents, and to establish biomarkers for assessing 1-bromopropane exposure. METHODS Twenty-four female and 13 male workers of a 1-bromopropane-factory were interviewed, and their urine and blood samples were collected. Measured parameters included 1-bromopropane levels in the factory, as well as individual exposure levels, urinary 1-bromopropane… CONTINUE READING
