In the Netherlands, special guidelines and safety precautions were introduced about 10 y ago for preparation and administration of antineoplastic agents.
However, little is known about the effectiveness of these measures.
In this study, occupational exposure to antineoplastic agents of nine pharmacy technicians who were involved in drug preparation was investigated.
Cyclophosphamide, 5-fluorouracil, and methotrexate accounted for 95% of the antineoplastic agents prepared ; therefore, the presence of these compounds was monitored.
