Abstract
The records of the Board of the Oklahoma State Dry Cleaners were used in a study on the effects of chronic, occupational exposures to petroleum dry cleaning solvents. The historical licensure records maintained by the Board made it possible to study a a well defined cohort of dry cleaners for which there is information on solvent exposure and duration of exposure. Volume 1 consisted of a review of the literature with information provided concerning the history of dry cleaning, description of the industry, legislation affecting the industry, a description of the process, equipment used, emission sources, levels of solvent exposure, exposure limits, the chemistry of petroleum hydrocarbons, animal toxicology, mutagenicity, teratogenicity, tumor production, human effects, and cancer mortality among oil refinery workers.
