Abstract

Two different biological markers of exposure to toluene are compared: urinary ortho-cresol and toluene. The study was performed on 100 rotogravure workers and 87 employees as controls. Significant differences were found for the two groups using both markers. Smoking habits affect the excretion of ortho-cresol but not of urinary toluene. For this reason, urinary toluene is a better marker of occupational exposure than toluene.
