[The membranogenous action of occupational hazards from the manufacture of black copper on older individuals].

Abstract

Many-year investigations of health status, aging process and occupational diseases in rough copper production workers, including elderly individuals, revealed the occupational factors (sulphur dioxide, industrial dust, etc.) harmful for membranes. Lowered share of phospholipids containing polyunsaturated fatty acids, that changes the physical and chemical properties of membranes and cellular receptors and enzymes, was found harmful for membranes. The most severe changes were seen in the workers exposed to sulphur dioxide.
