Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon exposure in coal liquefaction workers: the value of urinary 1-hydroxypyrene excretion in the development of occupational hygiene control strategies.

Abstract

Studies in coal liquefaction workers were conducted to examine relationships between work activities, exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and excretion of urinary 1-hydroxypyrene (1-OHP). In a single-week study in operators, the end of work period 1-OHP excretion was an order of magnitude higher than in a shadow control subject, who… (More)
