  1. MDA in plasma as a biomarker of exposure to pyrolysed MDI-based polyurethane : correlations with estimated cumulative dose and genotype for N-acetylation.

    Article - En anglais

    The object of this study was to investigate whether exposure of pipe-layers to thermal degradation products of diphenylmethane diisocyanate (MDI) could be assessed by analysing 4,4-methylenedianiline (MDA) in hydrolysed plasma and urine, and whether the genotype for N-acetylation affected these biomarker levels.

    Blood and urine samples were drawn from 30-pipe-layers who had been welding polyurethane (PUR) insulated pipes during the preceding 3 months.

    MDA in hydrolysed plasma and urine was determined with a gas chromatography-mass spectrometry technique, and genotype for N-acetylation was analysed with a polymerase chain reaction technique.

    MDA in plasma was detected in 18 of the 30 pipe-layers.

    Their plasma concentrations of MDA varied from 0.05 to 8.48 ƒg/l. There was a significant negative correlation between time since last welding of PUR-insulated pipes and P-MDA (r#Bs=0.50, P=0.005).

    There was also a significant positive correlation between the estimated number of welded PUR-insulated pipes during the preceding 3 months and P-MDA (r#Bs=0.68, P=<0.001).

    No significant association between genotype of N-acetylation and P-MDA was observed in a multiple regression analysis when adjustment was made for the estimated cumulative exposure to thermal degradation products of MDI.

    MDA in urine was detected in only four of the 30 pipe-layers.

    These four subjects had been welding PUR pipes on the same day as the sampling, or on the day before.
