Reproductive Health Risks Associated With Occupational Exposures to Antineoplastic Drugs in Health Care Settings
A Review of the Evidence Objectives: Antineoplastic drugs are known reproductive and developmental toxicants. Our objective was to review the existing literature of reproductive health risks to workers who handle antineoplastic drugs. Methods: A structured literature review of 18 peer-reviewed, English language publications of occupational exposure and reproductive outcomes was performed. Results: Although effect sizes varied with study size and population, occupational exposure to antineoplastic drugs seems to raise the risk of both congenital malformations and miscarriage. Studies of infertility...
Two reproduction toxicity evaluations – Chloramphenicol and indium and its compounds
The Health Council of the Netherlands has reviewed chloramphenicol and indium compounds. Indium is used in bearings for cars and aircrafts, in solders and low-melting alloys, and in nuclear reactor control rods. Indium and its compounds, including indium antimonide (InSb), indium arsenide (InAs), and indium phosphide (InP), find application in semiconductor devices, transistors, and transistor materials. Indium oxide is used for colouring glass. Indium sulphate is used in electroplating, and radioisotopes of indium and indium compounds (including indium trichloride) are employed in the treatment...
