We studied occupational exposure to phthalates from first-morning-void urine sample of hairdressing apprentices by HPLC-MS/MS analyses and association with health status. Metabolites of mono(2-ethyl-5-hydroxyhexyl) phthalate (MEHHP), mono ethyl phthalate (MEP), mono-n-butyl phthalate (MnBP) and mono-iso-butyl phthalate (MiBP) were detected in all urine samples, followed by metabolites mono(2-ethyl-5-oxohexyl) phthalate (MEOHP) and mono(2-etylhexyl) phthalate (MEHP) occurring in 97.06% and 86.76…

Phthalates Exposure and Occupational Symptoms among Slovakian Hairdressing Apprentices
Results of multivariate regression between PFT and anthropometric parameters adjusted to phthalates indicated exposure to MnBP and MEHP, changing body structure (BMI and FMI), subsequently affecting values of FEV1/FVC.
Occupational Hazards and Risks Associated with Phthalates among Slovakian Firefighters
Results of multivariate regression indicated that exposure to phthalates could be linked with changing body structure, which subsequently affects values of pulmonary functions in firefighters.
Female Reproductive Health and Exposure to Phthalates and Bisphenol A: A Cross Sectional Study
The presence of significantly higher values of certain phthalates, DEHP in particular, especially in women with RPL and idiopathic infertility, suggests a possible involvement of these compounds as competing factors in reproductive issues.
A Review of Biomonitoring of Phthalate Exposures
This review compiles biomonitoring studies of phthalates and exposure doses to assess health risks from phthalate exposures in populations across the globe.

Occupational Exposures Among Hair and Nail Salon Workers: a Scoping Review
Overall, there were insufficient studies to determine whether working in these settings is associated with reproductive health endpoints, although prior studies suggest that reproductive effects are of concern.

Describing Occupational Health Nursing Interventions and Outcomes in Hair Stylist Apprentices With Hand Eczema Using the Omaha System as a Framework
The Omaha System can be effectively used in occupational healthcare settings for specific cases in workplaces and can be an example for planning care in a specific case such as hair stylist apprentices with hand eczema symptoms by using the Omaha System.


Phthalate Exposure and Health-Related Outcomes in Specific Types of Work Environment
It is hypothesize that occupational exposure to phthalates estimated from urinary metabolites (MEHP, MiNP) can modify pulmonary function on top of lifestyle factors.
Phthalate Exposure among Roma Population in Slovakia
The results indicate that ethnicity, lower socioeconomic status and different housing conditions in Roma population can affect urinary concentration of phthalate metabolites.

Urinary phthalate metabolite concentrations among workers in selected industries: a pilot biomonitoring study.
Using urinary metabolites, this work successfully identified workplaces with likely occupational phthalate exposure and found instances where GM end-shift concentrations of some metabolites exceeded general population concentrations even when no workplace use was reported.

The data suggest that estimated exposure to phthalates in the cosmetics mentioned are relatively small, however, total exposure levels from several sources may be greater and require further investigation.
Urinary and air phthalate concentrations and self-reported use of personal care products among minority pregnant women in New York city
Results suggest that perfume use is a significant source of DEP exposure and personal air DEP increased by 7% for each 25% increase in a composite indicator of the six other product categories, but was not associated with perfume use.
Relationship between variation of seasonal temperature and extent of occupational exposure to phthalates
It is concluded that increasing indoor and outdoor temperature is related to phthalate exposure in specific types of work environment.
