Abstract
The carcinogenicity and metabolism of azo dyes derived from benzidine (92875) is presented. The metabolism of benzidine and azo compounds in humans and animals is discussed, and the disease incidence among workers in industries using azo dyestuffs is described. Industrial hygiene surveys performed to monitor the environment of azo dye workers and their urinary excretion of aromatic amines and benzidine are reviewed. Jobs involving dyestuff exposure and exposure to carcinogenic agents are identified. The author concludes that this study indicates the potential carcinogenicity of benzidine and the metabolites of benzidine derived dyes.
