Abstract Liver function was tested in neoprene (9010984) production workers. Blood samples from 81 workers at the Denka Chemical Company (SIC-2822) in Houston, Texas were analyzed for various proteins and enzymes related to liver function. The authors suggest that chemical exposures related to neoprene production cause liver function disturbances, and that exposed workers who drink alcohol may be at an even greater risk. They recommended a more comprehensive evaluation of these workers and of the health effects of neoprene exposure.
