Biological Monitoring: Prospects in Occupational and by Jürgen Angerer

By Jürgen Angerer

On the invitation of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), a round-table dialogue was once hung on nine and 10 March 2000, facing destiny chances for biomonitoring in occupational and environmental drugs. Biomonitoring has reached a excessive average in Germany over the last 30 years, no longer least considering the fact that the result of the Senate fee on fabrics unsafe to future health on the office were at once carried out as a part of the jurisdiction on the subject of occupational defense. This publication combines the services collected from quite a few parts inside of toxicology, occupational drugs, immunology and human genetics, correct as much as research and epidemiology. all through, the point of interest is on comprehensively deciding on the diagnostic validity of cytogenetic parameters in addition to biochemical and organic influence markers for the prevention of health problems because of destructive elements. hence, the dialogue allowed an preliminary alternate of rules, pointing to destiny learn, with a purpose to continue Germany's major position during this very important and swiftly increasing box. "...provides a good instructional at the use of organic tracking in occupational and environmental medicine...should be learn by way of each person concerned with publicity analysis." —Chemical Chemistry

Metabolic profiling therefore proved a suitable procedure for identifying early on patients at risk from therapy involving valproic acid. Although in analogy metabolic profiling would seem to be suitable for detecting the risks to the individual from exposure to chemicals at the workplace, to date there are only few studies available which investigate this possibility. For example, studies of the metabolism of trichloroethylene (Bernauer et al. 1996). In the case of trichloroethylene oxidative and reductive metabolic pathways compete with one another; the capacity of the oxidative metabolic pathway is 1000 to 10000 times greater than that of the reductive Figure 4: Metabolism of trichloroethylene (simplified) [acc.

00059, which is the proportion of an administered dose found associated with the Hb in rats (Sabbioni 1992, Birner & Neumann 1988). Thus for a 70 kg individual with 200 ng 2 MA/g Hb, the dose is 68 lg 2 MA/kg/day. In the absence of epidemiological data, animal experiments must be used to characterize the health risk to man. The daily dose given to rodents that causes a fifty percent greater likelihood of the development of a tumour is termed the TD50. The human exposure dose expressed as a percentage of the rodent potency dose (TD50) has been termed the HERP index (Ames et al.
