Abstract

The main epidemiologic and experimental data showing a causal relationship between exposure to vinyl chloride (VC) and angiosarcoma of the liver, acroosteolysis and other conditions in man are reported. Processes of production, properties and uses of VC and polyvinyl chloride are illustrated in order to explain occupational and nonoccupational exposure. The preliminary outline of an epidemiologic study on workers exposed to VC in Italy is discussed. In agreement with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's recommendation, the authors stress the need for a VC maximum allowable concentration at 'non detectable' levels.
