Measures for the disposal of non-regulated alternative medical wastes--safe handling of cytotoxic drugs



Measures for the disposal of non-regulated alternative medical wastes--safe handling of cytotoxic drugs



Rinsho Byori. Japanese Journal of Clinical Pathology Suppl 112: 120-128



It is easy to come into contact with cytotoxic drugs, by touching or inhaling small quantities of the drug-containing aerosols or dusts. Contact with cytotoxic drugs can cause immediate problems, such as dermatitis, dizziness, nausea, and headache. Studies suggest that repeated exposure to small amounts of the drugs many cause organ or chromosome damage, impaired fertility, and even cancer. The evidence is not conclusive, but an approach that will minimize the possible risks is needed.
