By Jürgen Angerer

On the invitation of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), a round-table dialogue was once hung on nine and 10 March 2000, facing destiny probabilities for biomonitoring in occupational and environmental medication. Biomonitoring has reached a excessive regular in Germany during the last 30 years, no longer least on the grounds that the result of the Senate fee on fabrics dangerous to wellbeing and fitness on the place of work were without delay applied as a part of the jurisdiction when it comes to occupational safeguard. This booklet combines the services accumulated from quite a few components inside toxicology, occupational drugs, immunology and human genetics, correct as much as research and epidemiology. all through, the point of interest is on comprehensively making a choice on the diagnostic validity of cytogenetic parameters in addition to biochemical and organic impression markers for the prevention of health problems as a result of damaging ingredients. therefore, the dialogue allowed an preliminary alternate of rules, pointing to destiny learn, so one can retain Germany's best function during this very important and quickly increasing box. "...provides a great educational at the use of organic tracking in occupational and environmental medicine...should be learn by means of every person concerned with publicity analysis." —Chemical Chemistry

In human lung, cytochrome P4501A1 is one of the enzymes that converts polycyclic PAHs into DNA-binding metabolites, as shown for BP (Fig. 1). BP-3-hydroxylase (AHH) is a marker for CYP1A1-related enzyme activity in human lung. Glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) including GSTM1 in the liver and GSTM3 in the lung detoxify reactive diol-epoxide intermediates (Fig. 1). Our previous studies revealed that tobacco smoke has great effects on carcinogen-metabolizing enzymes in the human lung (Bartsch 1996).

1984]. 21 2 Internal Exposure and Haemoglobin Adducts pathway. The two metabolic pathways lead to different toxic effects. While the products of oxidative metabolism cause central nervous and hepatotoxic effects, the products of the reductive, glutathione-dependent pathway are responsible for the nephrotoxic and nephro-carcinogenic effects. If with high levels of exposure the oxidative metabolic pathway becomes saturated, the reductive metabolic pathway gains in importance and the risk of kidney damage increases.
