    The main goal of this pilot study was to assess the technical and logistic feasibility of a future study. The research hypothesis is that occupational exposures to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are associated with increased risk of DNA damage among roofers who work with hot asphalt. Th...
  9. The utility of naphthyl-keratin adducts as biomarkers for jet-fuel exposure.

    Biomarkers 16(7):590 (2011) PMID 21961652 PMCID PMC4174274

    We investigated the association between biomarkers of dermal exposure, naphthyl-keratin adducts (NKA), and urine naphthalene biomarker levels in 105 workers routinely exposed to jet-fuel. A moderate correlation was observed between NKA and urine naphthalene levels (pā€‰=ā€‰0.061). The NKA, post-expo...
