Study of the immunotoxicity of ethylene bis dithocarbamate pesticides in vineyard workers in Italy

A study of the immunotoxicity of ethylene bis dithocarbamate pesticides in vineyard workers was performed in Italy. Exposure parameters and immune parameters were measured, and questionnaires were applied to the workers. The study revealed did not confirm the slight immunostimulatory effects associated with mancozeb exposure observed in previous studies, perhaps because the parameters measured (serum and cellular) are different from those taken into account in these previous studies.
