Abstract

The Biological Monitoring is one of the most promising tools for performing an effective programme of prevention from the potentially toxic effects of chemicals in occupational environment. Its most interesting feature consists in the possibility of predicting toxicological diseases at a very early stage by means of measurement of indicators of dose and effects. For industrial chemicals such as aluminium, chromium, styrene, a description of the types and characteristics of indicators is given. The limitation and difficulties inherent in biological monitoring are analyzed, indicating the goals for further research in this field.
