  1. Serum prolactin in subjects occupationally exposed to manganese.

    Article - En anglais

    To evaluate whether or not occupational exposure to manganese (Mn) affects basal levels of serum prolactin (PRL), a cross-sectional study was carried out in 31 occupationally-exposed workers, aged 39.2 years (DS 7.9) exposed to manganese (Mn) dusts for 14.5 years (range : 5 to 29 years) in a ferroalloy producing plant.

    Thirty-four industrial workers not exposed to neurotoxic chemicals and of comparable age composed the control group.

    Airborne Mn concentrations in dusts of the furnace area ranged 210 to 980 mug/m3, which is below the current American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) - recommended threshold limit value-time weighted average (TLV-TWA) of 1 mg/m3.

    Manganese concentrations in blood Mn (MnB) and in urine (MnU) were significantly higher in Mn-exposed workers as compared to control workers.

    The Mn-exposed workers showed significantly higher serum prolactin (PRL) levels with the geometric mean (GM) being 9.77 ng/ml with a geometric standard deviation (GSD) of 1.69 as compared to controls (GM 4.65 ng/ml, GSD 1.78, p<0.001).

    Serum PRL was negatively related to age and positively correlated with both MnB and MnU.

    Dose-effect relationships were still significant in partial correlation analysis after control for age.

    The prevalence of abnormally high PRL values was consistent with a dose-response relationship.

    The observed increase in serum PRL among Mn-exposed workers suggests an impairment of tonic inhibition by tubero-infundib...
