Characterizing and biological monitoring of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in exposures to diesel exhaust.

Abstract

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are one of the most important and carcinogenic components in diesel exhaust (DE). Therefore, ambient PAHs concentrations were measured and characterized for work areas in a locomotive engine inspection plant. Pre- and post-shift urine samples and concurrent air samples were collected on 17 workers to measure the… (More)
