Trajectories of PTSD risk and resilience in World Trade Center responders: an 8-year prospective cohort study
Trajectories of PTSD symptoms in WTC responders are heterogeneous and associated uniquely with pre- peri- and post-trauma risk and protective factors, particularly those with prior psychiatric history, high levels of trauma exposure and work-related medical morbidities.

The World Trade Center Disaster and the Health of Workers: Five-Year Assessment of a Unique Medical Screening Program
WTC responders had exposure-related increases in respiratory symptoms and pulmonary function test abnormalities that persisted up to 2.5 years after the attacks, and lessons learned should guide future responses to civil disasters.

Cancer Incidence in World Trade Center Rescue and Recovery Workers, 2001–2008
All cancers combined were increased in very highly exposed responders and among those exposed to significant amounts of dust, compared with responders who reported lower levels of exposure.

Exposure, probable PTSD and lower respiratory illness among World Trade Center rescue, recovery and clean-up workers
The link between PTSD and respiratory symptoms is noteworthy and calls for further investigation, and the findings also support the value of integrated medical and psychiatric treatment for disaster responders.

It is demonstrated that the presence of an altered microbiome in severe OSA is associated with inflammatory markers, and three months of treatment with continuous positive airway pressure did not change the composition of the nasal microbiota.
Longitudinal assessment of spirometry in the World Trade Center medical monitoring program.
Elevated rates of spirometric abnormalities were present at both examinations, with reduced FVC most common, and although the majority had a normal decline in lung function, lack of bronchodilator response at examination 1 and weight gain were significantly associated with greater-than-normal lung function declines.
