The OECD guidelines define mutation as `A change in the information content of the genetic material which is propagated through subsequent generations of cells or individuals'. Mutations can either arise spontaneously or can be induced by either chemicals or physical agents such as X-rays. The result is that the offspring differs unexpectedly from the parent that has been exposed to the mutagen. 2 How do mutations occur? Anything that has the ability to cause an alteration in the genetic material of the cell which can then be replicated is called a mutagen and as such it may produce a mutation.

There are two main populations of lymphocytes involved in the immune response. These are the T-lymphocytes (often known as T-cells) and the B-lymphocytes (B-cells). The immune response can be mediated by either the B-lymphocytes (B-cells), which is called antibody-mediated immune response, and which involves the production of immunoglobulins (or what are more commonly known as antibodies, examples of which include IgE, IgM and IgG), otherwise it can be mediated by the T-lymphocytes (T-cells), in which case it is known as a cell-mediated immune response.

As with other forms of hypersensitivity, allergic contact dermatitis is a very important issue in the workplace because normal handling and protective precautions are often ineffective. Even if a particular chemical has an occupational exposure limit and attempts are made to keep the levels well below this, the breakout of symptoms associated with that particular allergy in sensitised individuals may still occur. This is because the levels needed to trigger an outbreak of symptoms are very low and often well below that specified by an occupational hygiene limit.
