What I can tell you ist, that I had aworkmate, who has been working for thirty years in histology. She isretarded in 1999. She has also Mb. Raynaud (that's the disease with the"white fingers"?). And latetly I was told, that she is consulting thedoctors because of another autoimmun-disease, where the esophagus isaffected. I don't know the details, but I think there was no examinationabout connections between the diseases and the chemical exposition duringher livetime.I can remember, that she told us about airdrying xylol-wet slides on theradiatior ....Just one story of a histotechGudrun Lang-----Ursprüngliche Nachricht-----Von:[] Im Auftrag von Ross,VirginiaGesendet: Donnerstag, 10.

I haveworked with the traditional histology chemicals, solvents, andmethymethacrylate.  I am interested in seeing if there is a link betweenhistologists and autoimmune diseases, and which chemicals may be implicated.I would greatly appreciate any information anyone has on any of thesetopics.Thank you,Virginia_______________________________________________Histonet mailing listHistonet@lists.utsouthwestern.edu mailing listHistonet@lists.utsouthwestern.edu mailing listHistonet@lists.utsouthwestern.edu contents of this e-mail message and any attachments are private and confidential communications intended solely for the addressee(s) named in this message.
