Monitoring exposure to propylene oxide through the determination of hemoglobin alkylation.

Abstract

The levels of Nt-(2-hydroxypropyl)histidine in hemoglobin were determined for eight employees of a plant where propylene oxide is used and for thirteen referents. Good agreement was obtained between the estimated exposure and the degree of alkylation of hemoglobin; values of 0.1 nmol (11 referents), 0.2 nmol (1 referent), 0.38 nmol (1 referent), 0.2 nmol (1… (More)
