The present study did not give any
indication that occupational exposure to low or high molecular epoxy
resin produces visible chromosomal damage.
Cytogenetic evaluation was performed of
peripheral lymphocytes from 18 workers currently exposed to epoxy resins
of the type diglycidyl ether bisphenol-A (DGEBA). 9 workers were
exposed to low molecular (average MW <900) and 9 to high molecular
(average MW about 2000) epoxy resins. The results were compared with an
equal number of control individuals matched for sex and age. There was
no difference in chromosomal aberration frequency between the controls
and the groups exposed to epoxy resin. Thus, this study gave no
indication that exposure to epoxy resin produces visible damage to the
