The urinary excretion of 1-hydroxypyrene (1-OHP) was measured in two reference groups of non-occupationally exposed individuals and in four groups of workers. Two of these groups were exposed to what were considered to be low levels of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) on the basis that even post-shift 1-OHP excretion values were low (< 2 mumol/mol creatinine). Therefore, urine samples were collected from these workers after a period of > 60 h without occupational exposure which should… CONTINUE READING
