Limited/Suggestive Evidence of an Association:

  • Solvents and reactive airways dysfunction syndrome (RADS) which would be evident with exposure and could persist for months or years

  • Solvents and hepatic steatosis

  • Solvents and chronic glomerulonephritis

  • Insecticides and allergic contact dermatitis

Inadequate/Insufficient to Determine Whether an Association Exists:

  • Insecticides and aplastic anemia

  • Solvents other than benzene and aplastic anemia

  • Insecticides and solvents and irreversible cardiovascular outcomes

  • Insecticides and solvents and persistent respiratory symptoms or impairment after cessation of exposure

  • Solvents and alterations in liver function tests after cessation of exposure

  • Solvents and cirrhosis

  • Solvents and chronic pancreatitis or other persistent gastrointestinal outcomes

  • Solvents and the systemic rheumatic diseases: scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, undifferentiated connective tissue disorders, and systemic lupus erythematosus

Limited/Suggestive Evidence of NO Association

  • No finding
