A comparative evaluation of urinary biomarkers was carried out to characterize benzene exposure in a group of 100 traffic policemen of the city of Parma (Italy). All subjects were monitored once, in two consecutive days characterized by similar climatic conditions but preceded by two windy days. Benzene ambient concentration measured by municipal air monitoring stations was 1 microg/m(3) (Day 1) and 2 microg/m3 (Day 2). Personal exposure to ambient concentrations of benzene, toluene… CONTINUE READING
