Presents information on a study that determined whether hepatic biochemical changes as measured by routinely available tests indicative of hepatocellular necrosis, cholestasis or altered hepatic clearance of bilirubin occur in association with low to moderate exposure to styrene commonly experienced in industrial production. Methodology of the study; Results and discussion on the study; Conclusions.
