Objective: To report health outcomes of 30 years (1978–2007) of medical surveillance of workers engaged in a perfluooctanoic acid (PFOA) production plant. Methods: Fifty-three males workers (20 to 63 years) were submitted every year to medical examination and blood chemical chemistry tests, and serum PFOA dosage. Results: In the latest survey PFOA serum levels ranged from 0.20 to 47.04 μg/mL in currently exposed workers, and from 0.53 to 18.66 μg/mL in those formerly exposed. No clinical… Expand
