  • Abstract:  The potential health hazards involved with antineoplastic agents have been known for decades. Many anticancer drugs are recognized as carcinogens and genotoxins in experimental assays. Second cancers have been recorded in follow‐up studies with treated patients. The first findings on occupational exposures among hospital personnel administering chemotherapy were reported only in 1979. Since that time a magnitude of studies have been published using various chemical and biological… CONTINUE READING
