Abstract Perchloroethylene (PCE, tetrachloroethylene) vapor is commonly found in the workers' environment in dry cleaning establishments and industrial degreasing operations. Since many of these workers are sometimes additionally exposed to drugs which might exacerbate any effects of PCE on the central nervous system, a study was conducted to evaluate the potential interaction of PCE and such drugs on the behavioral and neurological function of volunteer subjects.
