A STUDY ON VANADIUM IN WORKERS FROM OIL FIRED POWER PLANTS
No symptoms or signs of illness have been detected in the workers during or after exposure so that occurrence of acute vanadium intoxication can be excluded. No information at all may be provided on possible long term health effects. Human tissues usually contain very small concentrations of vanadium (1-10 ppb) and the total amount of vanadium is very small in unexposed subjects. The vanadium quantities absorbed by the workers under study have sometimes been large enough to significantly increase the vanadium bioavailability of tissues. The possible biological effects of such an increase are still undefined.
