PAHs in urine

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are by-products of combustion.  There are a large number of compounds that are classified as PAHs; some, such as benzo(a)pyrene, are carcinogenic.  We have published research showing that pyrene is a good generic marker of PAH exposure and that urinary 1-hydroxypyrene is a suitable biomarker.  HSE has set a GB guidance value for 1-hydroxypyrene in urine (4 µmol/mol creatinine).
