From 1984, a biomedical surveillance programme assessed the occupational exposure to 4, 4'-methylene-bis-(2-chloroaniline) (MBOCA) in seven factories which manufactured polyurethane polymers. Urinary MBOCA concentrations were used to assess absorption of MBOCA which is a scheduled carcinogen under the Poisons Act in Western Australia. The relevance and limitations of urinary MBOCA as a biological indicator of exposure to MBOCA, the use of spot urines based on creatinine concentrations in… CONTINUE READING
