[Methyl sulphides and their metabolites in biologic materials of workers engaged into sulfate pulping].


PMID 17695266

Abstract

The authors studied serum and urine levels of methyl sulphides in workers engaged into sulfate pulping and exposed to methyl sulphides. Blood serum was studied only for dimethyldisulfide. Urine appeared to contain no methyl sulphides, but finding was increased urinary excretion of sulfates which are metabolites of methyl sulphides. Sulfates content of urine correlated with intensity and duration of exposure to methyl sulphides, so this exposure test could be used as a biologic marker in monitoring work conditions and health state of workers exposed to methyl sulphides.
