Biological Monitoring of Exposure to Benzene in Port Workers Results showed that the role of inhaled benzene at fuelling stations in a tourist port can be relevant. The study suggests that the use of personal protective equipment should be ecouraged in the fuelling area of ports. T,t-MA was measured with Chromsystems HPLC assay 2020
Abnormal Plasma Cell Disorders in Refinery Waste Workers This study indicates an association with cigarette smoking and residence close to industrial sites, though the occupational exposure, which is particularly contained and monitored in the various work environments, does not seem to be associated with the risk for monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS). t,t-MA was measured with Chromsystems assay. 2018
Mutagenic and DNA repair activity in traffic policemen: a case-crossover study This study demonstrated that occupational exposure to pollutants from traffic emission, assessed via 1-OHP measurements in urine, may lead to DNA repair and mutagenic activity, in line with other studies. 1-OHP was measured with Chromsystems HPLC assay.  2018
