Since subjects with the main confounding factors were excluded from the study, and the subjects investigated were matched by sex, age, and working life, the data suggest the possibility that occupational exposure to urban pollutants in traffic police can have an influence on 5-HT turnover and therefore on 5-HIAA(U)]excretion.
