Visual display terminals and workers' health
AbstractA critical review of medical and epidemiological data relevant to the question of whether workers using visual display terminals are exposed to special health risks. The book, which records the conclusions and recommendations of an international working group, cites well over 300 studies in an effort to settle controversies concerning which suspected risks are unsubstantiated, which are substantiated, and which preventive actions are necessary, whether in the design of equipment or the advice given to pregnant women. Throughout, emphasis is placed on health problems that may be caused or aggravated by the use of cathode ray tube-based terminals in an office environment. Data on other technologies, such as those using plasma or liquid crystal, are also considered

El Awady, M.K.; Abdalla, N.M.; Salem, A.M.; Samir, S.; Nour, A.M. (2001)Analysis of expressed mRNAs with differential display-polymerase chain reaction [DD-PCR] is a powerful tool for the characterization of genes involved in malignant pathways and might identify markers for different phases of chronic myelogenous leukaemia [CML]. We examined the presence of BCR-ABL transcripts in 25 CML patients in either the chronic phase or blast crisis. We then analysed the expression of leukocytic RNA transcripts in CML phases. DD-PCR technique was used to examine CML cases with BCR-ABL in comparison with CML cases lacking ...
