In univariate analyses (Table 3), the SROI were significantly more frequent among female subjects ([Chi.sup.2] test p = 0.022; OR = 4.118; 95% CI: 1.34-12.65), and among the various QODs the hyperosmia was the most frequently complained about (8/21 vs.
When the multivariate model was applied (Table 5), taking into account ethnicity, age and working age as covariates and assuming a declining exposure from the mixing plant to the shipping plant (the latter workers assumed to be the referent ones), female sex was confirmed as the main determinant for the SROI (ORa = 5.62; 95% CI: 1.53-20.72) and the hyperosmia a(ORa = 25.14; 95% CI: 2.38-265.7) whereas the self-complained anosmia was confirmed to be significantly more frequent in both of the exposed groups (ORa = 5.27; 95% CI: 1.10-25.24 for the production plant and ORa = 11.13; 95% CI: 1.06-116.93 for the mixing plant).
