Provided here is an assessment of current applications and future directions for the biological monitoring of occupational exposure to chemicals (with the emphasis on organic chemicals). The book begins with an introduction and thorough review of the principles of biological monitoring, and reviews the investigations of scientists from all over the world dealing with specific applications in biological monitoring. Techniques that may provide great potential for the application of biological monitoring to the early detection or prevention of carcinogens are surveyed, and in addition, the book includes a discussion of the fluorescence method as a potential monitoring technique for early detection of occupational cancers.
