48 and 42% of the recovered radioactivity
was excreted within 24h following palm and forearm exposure
respectively. Radioactivity in stool samples was below the limit of
0.13±0.04% of the palmar dose was absorbed, the corresponding value for
forearm exposure was 0.07±0.04%; there was no statistically significant
difference between the results for palm and forearm.
of benzene through human skin in vivo was investigated in 2 groups of 4
male volunteers following one topical application to the forearm or
palm. A dose of 100uL of benzene/14C benzene was applied
under controlled conditions. Urine and stool samples were collected for
a total of 6 or 7 days and analysed for radioactivity. Absorption values
were found to be nominal with forearm exposure showing an average total
absorption of 0.07±0.04% and palmar exposure an average total absorption
of 0.13±0.04% of the applied dose.
