Is the introduction of a blood alcohol threshold value for navigators on German ships necessary?

, : Is the introduction of a blood alcohol threshold value for navigators on German ships necessary?. Zentralblatt fur Arbeitsmedizin, Arbeitsschutz, Prophylaxe und Ergonomie 40(3): 62-69

The author argues in favour of introducing a blood alcohol (BA) threshold value in shipping, similar to those in legal use in road traffic. Evidence is given from Germany of an increase in the number of drunken navigating accidents between 1960 and 1986, of finding of unfitness to navigate at BA values of around 0.1%, and of reduced performance capabilities of drunken professional seamen during trials on radar and navigation-light simulators.

Integration sites for HTLV-1 and HIV-1proviruses were detected by FISH on the chromosomes of HTHIV27 cells persistently infected by HIV-1 (strain IIIB). HTLV-1 signals were found on 9 loci of chromosomes 4, 6, 9, 15 and 16. Integration sites of GC...
