  1. Induction of P-450 in workers exposed to dioxin.

    Article - En anglais

    Objectives-To examine the effects of occupational exposure to substances contaminated with 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) on cytochrome P-4501A2 activity in a cross sectional medical survey.

    Methods-The exposed workers had been employed at two chemical plants 715 years earlier in the manufacture of 2,4,5-trichlorophenol and its derivatives.

    The control group consisted of people with no occupational exposure to phenoxy herbicides and who lived within the communities of the exposed workers.

    A total of 58 workers and 125 unexposed controls participated in the analysis.

    Results

    Compared with the control group in multivariate logistic regression, raised non-significant associations were found for three of four categories of TCDD in exposed workers (TCDD<20 pg/g, odds ratio (OR) 1.7,95% confidence interval (95% CI) 0.6 to 5.0, TCDD20.66, OR 0.3,95% CI 0.0 to 1.7 ; TCDD 67.147, OR 2.3,95% CI 0.6 to 8.8 ; TCDD =148, OR 3.1,95% CI 0.8 to 12.5).

    We found a strongly significant association of CMR and urinary cotinine, a measure of smoking, and urinary free ethanol.

    We found weak non-significant associations between P-4501A2 activity and increased serum TCDD among workers.

    Conclusions-The absence of an association between serum TCDD and cytochrome P-4501A2 may be due to the size of the study, insensitivity of the CMR to assess cytochrome P-4501A2 activity, or inadequate levels of exposure, although these were among the highest in human groups tested.
