Disease relevance of Textile Industry


High impact information on Textile Industry


Biological context of Textile Industry


Associations of Textile Industry with chemical compounds

  • Additionally, since the textile industry has moved to the use of newer methods for measuring fabric formaldehyde content, the newer methodology was compared with the older methods used in the medical literature [10].
  • The wastewater contained components that are very often used in Polish textile industry: an anionic detergent Awiwaz KG conc., a softening agent Tetrapol CLB and an anthraquinone dyestuff-Acid Blue 40, CI 2125 [11].
  • In a chemical plant, ethylene oxide (EO) and propylene oxide (PO) were used for the production of surfactants for the textile industry [12].
  • This paper describes the behaviour of methanogenic and mixed bacteria cultures on the colour removal in batch systems, of a commercial azo dye, C.I. Acid Orange 7, used in paper and textile industries [13].
  • The report gives a detailed technical description of the test system and presents the results from 11 tests with pure chemicals (Zn, Cd, As, and pentachlorophenate) and six industrial effluents (pulp industry, textile industry, and refinery) in salinities ranging from 3 to 25% [14].

Gene context of Textile Industry

  • Urinary mutagenicity, CYP1A2 and NAT2 activity in textile industry workers [15].
  • The MS rate was associated with the main industry groups (metal processing and textile industry), with industry as a whole, and with the extent of oat cultivation [16].
  • In the first part of this study, wastewater characteristics of a cotton mill textile industry were determined by using the normal and log-normal II distribution functions for flow, COD, TOC, pH and colour [17].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Textile Industry

  • In a study carried out in an alkaline battery factory, the study group consisted of 141 factory workers exposed to cadmium, while 206 workers in the textile industry constituted the control group [18].
