Blood samples were collected twice (in 1993 and 1994) from 19 workers exposed to 1,3-butadiene and 19 matched controls. Three exposed and three control subjects were the same in 1993 and 1994. Personal passive dosimetry was performed in 1993 and twice in 1994 on the day preceding blood sampling. Mean exposure level in 1994 was 1.76 +/- 4.20 ppm (S.D.) and individual exposure levels ranged between 0.012 ppm (detection limit) and 19.77 ppm. Using the clonal assay, geometric mean of hprt mutant… CONTINUE READING
