    In the case of solvents, neurotoxicity is most widely accepted non-occupationally in the case of solvent (toluene) sniffers. Neurotoxicity has been more difficult to demonstrate consistently in the occupational setting where exposures are lower and over long periods. Where findings have been positive, a mixture of solvents has been implicated.

ABSTRACT Nineteen Sewage Treatment Workers (STWs) exposed to industrial sewage that contained benzene, toluene, and other organic solvents at a primary sewage treatment plant in New York City (Plant A) were examined for evidence of solvent toxicity. Fourteen (74%) complained of central nervous system (CNS) symptoms consistent with solvent exposure, including lightheadedness, fatigue, .

Long term health effects. A number of long term adverse effects of solvents have been described including leukaemia in benzene exposed workers, 13 scleroderma 14 (mixed solvents), and renal cancer in those exposed to chlorinated hydrocarbons.

15 While the association between benzene and leukaemia is well established, other solvent effects, such as those on the nervous system, are more. Millions of workers are regularly exposed to organic solvents considered neurotoxic.

Acute neurotoxicity due to high exposure of solvent is usually evident, but the nature of long-term effects, such as chronic solvent encephalopathy (CSE), has raised uncertainty even among by: 6. Overview of the neurotoxic effects in solvent exposed workers not more than a few hours (5).

In cases of acute or subacute intoxication with organic solvents, symptoms of eye and nose irritation, a feeling of drunkenness, dyspnea, nausea, headache, ataxia, in the worst cases eventually leading to myoclonus, confusion, somnolence, coma and con.

Abstract. In recent decades the organic solvent toluene (methylbenzene) has emerged as one of the best-studied neurotoxins. Long-term and intense exposure to toluene vapors in humans who abuse spray paint and related substances has led to the recognition that toluene has a severe impact on central nervous system by: Neurotoxic effects of occupational solvent exposure.

The aims of this project are: To conduct a cross-sectional survey of solvent exposures and neurological symptoms in vehicle spray painters, and in a comparison group of other blue collar workers with little or no exposure.

Lindström, K. Behavioral effects of long-term exposure to organic solvents. In the first long term look at how solvents affect the brain, researchers say some chemicals are linked to cognitive problems 30 years after exposure.

The study analyzed the exposure factors that may lead to neuropsychological symptoms among 92 workers who were exposed to xylene and toluene and workers who were not exposed to the solvents.

The airborne concentration of xylene and toluene was evaluated with personal passive badges. The levels of methyl hippuric acid and hippuric acid in urine were assessed, and interviews were.

Long-Term Cognitive Effects of Solvents Chronic exposures, or even one large exposure, can have serious implications on worker health.

A study in the medical journal Neurology found that workers who were consistently exposed to high levels of solvents during their lifetime had significantly higher levels of brain impairment even years later.

Chronic solvent-induced encephalopathy (CSE) is a condition induced by long-term exposure to organic solvents, often but not always in the workplace, that lead to a wide variety of persisting sensorimotor polyneuropathies and neurobehavioral deficits even after solvent exposure has been removed.

This syndrome can also be referred to as "psycho-organic syndrome", "organic solvent syndrome. Background: Paints and coatings include paints, varnishes, lacquers, stains, printing inks and more. A wide variety of volatile solvents are used in paint and coating manufacturing including aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, ketones and consist of more than 30% of most of paints.

At low or moderate concentrations, the organic solvents may cause transient symptoms such as euphoria. LONG TERM HEALTH EFFECTS. A number of long term adverse effects of solvents have been described including leukaemia in benzene exposed workers, 13 scleroderma 14 (mixed solvents), and renal cancer in those exposed to chlorinated hydrocarbons.

15 While the association between benzene and leukaemia is well established, other solvent effects, such as those on the nervous system, are. Summary. A multidisciplinary cross-sectional study was performed to examine the chronic neurotoxicity of organic solvents.

Participating in the study were persons employed as spray painters and having long-term solvent exposure (10–44 years) and a control group consisting of 58 construction workers, electricians, and plumbers without occupational contact to solvents.

Organic solvents are a chemical class of compounds that are used routinely in commercial industries. They share a common structure (at least 1 carbon atom and 1 hydrogen atom), low molecular weight, lipophilicity, and volatility, and they exist in liquid form at room temperature.

• Neurotoxic effects are the basis for exposure limit criteria for about 40% of the agents considered hazardous by NIOSH (National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, US) • Of those chemicals with established neurotoxic effects, solvents represent the greatest potential hazard in New Zealand with an estimatedworkers exposed.

A multidisciplinary cross-sectional study was carried out in spray painters with long-term solvent exposure (10–44 years) and in 58 control subjects not exposed to solvents. By means of air monitoring the solvent concentrations in the ambient air during spray painting were determined using charcoal and silicagel tubes with pumps and passive samplers.

The effects of long-term low-level exposures to solvents on cognitive function were investigated. A total of workers at a gun factory, those exposed to solvents (n = ) and those that were. Fiberglass insulation impacts the brain and causes both short- and long-term effects.

Neurotoxic Effects According to David M. Whiteacre in the book "Reviews of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology, Volume ," exposure to formaldehyde in residential fiberglass insulation can cause irreversible neurotoxicity and neurodegenerative disorders.

By the late s, he was also beginning to exhibit the classic neurotoxic effects of long-term exposure to the solvents and cleaners he used every day. “I would get these ‘brain farts’ where I couldn’t focus or pay attention to detail,” Patrick says.Neurotoxicity is a major adverse effect of chemical exposure and is particularly serious in developing countries.
