Outbreaks of hypersensitivity pneumonitis or humidifier fever were attributed to the inhalation of organic material aerosolized by a chilled-water spray humidification system. The purpose of this study was to isolate and characterize the serologically detectable antigen(s) present in extracts obtained from the humidification system. By using bicarbonate or(More)
A previous study suggested that a biologically active bacterial endotoxin was a putative agent of lung disease in a textile-producing facility. The endotoxin was isolated from the biomass growing in a chilled-water spray air humidification system. The bacterial flora of the air humidification system were isolated and taxonomically identified to the genus(More)
