Benzene (B) is a typical micro-pollutant present in air, especially urban air. In this study a possible correlation between personal benzene exposure and S-phenylmercapturic acid (S-PMA) as a biomarker of internal dose was evaluated in a cohort of traffic policemen. The results confirm that S-PMA is significantly correlated to benzene measured in personal air. B and S-PMA were analyzed considering seasonality, work quarters, time spent indoors, outdoors, and directing traffic, but no significant differences were recorded.

Abstract

Benzene (B) is a typical micro-pollutant present in air, especially urban air. In this study a possible correlation between personal benzene exposure and S-phenylmercapturic acid (S-PMA) as a biomarker of internal dose was evaluated in a cohort of traffic policemen. The results confirm that S-PMA is significantly correlated to benzene measured in personal air. B and S-PMA were analyzed considering seasonality, work quarters, time spent indoors, outdoors, and directing traffic, but no significant differences were recorded.
