Atherosclerotic vascular disease in workers chronically exposed to carbon disulfide (CS 2) was frequently found. Modifications of coagulation factors, fibrinolysis and platelet function have been recently considered risk factors. We have analysed β-thromboglobulin, platelet factor IV, firbinogen, α 2-antiplasmin, antithrombin III and factor VIII-R antigen in 70 men exposed to CS 2 air pollution ranging from 5 to 35 mg/m 3 and in 70 men as controls. Our results don't show a significant difference between exposed subjects and controls.
