Benzene has been one of the most studied and litigated chemicals in the US. Its toxicology has been of concern since the 1930s, when rubber workers started developing aplastic anemia from increased exposures. Over the past 70 years, occupational exposures have remained of interest with the focus almost entirely on an increased risk of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) from elevated benzene exposures.
Paustenbach and Associates has studied benzene extensively since 1988 and has published over 20 papers on benzene toxicology and benzene exposures. We continue to provide support to our clients on these matters. Our experts have served on numerous science advisory panels, given over 50 depositions and have participated in numerous trials involving exposures to low and high concentrations of airborne benzene.
A short list of projects that we have worked on in the past and our publications are provided below.
