Abstract

The Biological Monitoring is one of the most promising tools for performing an effective program of prevention from the potentially toxic effects of chemicals in occupational environment; its most interesting feature consist 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 benzene, lead, manganese, titanium, toluene, halogenated hydrocarbons and cadmium 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.
