Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide. The economic impact is significant and increasing according to the World Health Organization 2017 Fact Sheet. A correct diagnosis is essential for effective treatment because each type of cancer requires a very specific regimen that may include surgery, radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy. Handling of chemotherapy drugs is known to pose potential risks depending on the drug toxicity, frequency and duration of exposure. Work practice controls are important and the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) is critical. This includes approved chemotherapy tested gloves and other protective items such as gowns, masks, goggles, etc. Glove best practices for testing and use should be reviewed carefully and only gloves approved for use with chemotherapy drugs should be worn.
