    Abstract

    Friborská, A. (1969).Brit. J. industr. Med.,26, 159-161. The phosphatases of peripheral white blood cells in workers exposed to trichloroethylene and perchloroethylene. The activity of leucocyte alkaline phosphatase was found to be increased in people continuously exposed during their working hours to trichloroethylene. The increase correlated with the severity of exposure. Possible causes are discussed. The activity of acid phosphatases was also increased. Periodic acid Schiff reaction staining (with and without diastase digestion) gave no pathological results.
