  1. Nervous system dysfunction among workers with long-term exposure to manganese.

    Article - En anglais

    Neurological disorders, bearing many similarities to Parkinson's disease, have been associated with environmental and occupational exposure to manganese (Mn).

    To document early nervous system dysfunction associated with long-term exposure to Mn, a battery of neurofunctional tests was administered to workers employed in Mn alloy production.

    Study participation was 95% (n=115).

    A matched pair design was used; actively working men, with no history of workplace exposure to neurotoxins, were recruited from the region as referents.

    Matching was done on the variables: age (+-3 years), educational level (+-2 years), smoking status, and number of children.
