Abstract

This study, carried out to measure the levels of urine excretion of ethylenethiourea (ETU) in a group of 46 agricultural workers exposed to mancozeb and 36 controls, has shown a statistically significant increase of ETU excretion in workers, after the workshift (median: 10 μg ETU/g creatinine); baseline determinations in workers and controls did not show any statistically significant difference, with median values less than 1 μg ETU/g creatinine. The highest levels of exposure were observed, respectively, in helicopter assistants, tractor applicators and re-entry workers.
