A biomonitoring pilot study in workers exposed to pigment-grade titanium dioxide (TiO2) during paints production

The poster shows the research on the effects of worker´s exposure to pigment-grade titanium dioxide. The aim of the study is to assess early pulmonary and systemic effects in workers with mild TiO2 exposure during paint production.

NanoTox 2021 - A pilot study to demonstrate the feasibility of a harmonized approach for monitoring exposure to engineered and incidental nanoparticles and their potential health effects

The increased production and handling of nanomaterials (NM) have raised concerns regarding the potential of unforeseen health effects, especially among exposed workers. Implementing epidemiological investigations on longitudinal cohorts is key to ensure workers safety. Therein, biomarkers are useful in early detection of exposure-related health alterations.
