Criteria for the recognition of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) were applied to 362 subjects exposed to trichloroethylene, trichloroethane, inorganic chromium, and other chemicals in water obtained from wells in an industrially contamined aquifer in Tuscon, Arizona.
Their antinuclear autoantibodies were measured by fluorescence (FANA) in serum.
Ten patients with clinical SLE and/or other collagen-vascular diseases were considered separately.
Results were compared to an Arizona control group, to published series, and to laboratory controls.
