National conference on new oncologic agents. Dallas TX (USA), 1991/02/06.
Over the last decade, concerns about the hazards of handling cytotoxic chemotherapeutic agents increased as various studies were published.
Analysis of these data suggest possible carcinogenic, teratogenic, and mutagenic risk for health professionals (predominantly nurses and pharmacists) that handle these drugs.
However, the research is inconclusive.
The nature of the problem, along with methodologic issues, may make it difficult or impossible to provide definitive data on the type and degree of risk for those exposed to chemotherapeutic agents.
