    Urinary levels of 1-hydroxypyrene in a general adult population group are studied.

    Experimental data are not normally distributed ; statistical analysis required a base 10 logarithmic transformation of data.

    The concentrations of urinary 1-hydroxypyrene measured were expressed as mug g-1 urinary creatinine and are comparable with those reported by other authors, both for smoker and non-smoker subgroups.

    Multiple regression analysis shows that, for smokers, the number of cigarettes smoked per day and the body mass index (BMI) significantly influence the levels of urinary 1-hydroxypyrene expressed as mug g-1 urinary creatinine, whereas no personal or behavioural variable (age, sex, alcohol consumption, dietary intake of pyrene, BMI) modified the 1-hydroxypyrene levels for non-smokers. 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.
