Outcomes for COPD pharmacological trials: from lung function to biomarkers
The American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society jointly created a Task Force on “Outcomes for COPD pharmacological trials: from lung function to biomarkers” to inform the chronic…
Effect of domestic concentrations of nitrogen dioxide on airway responses to inhaled allergen in asthmatic patients
The sick building syndrome: prevalence studies.
Comparison of prevalences of symptoms between the naturally ventilated and the other buildings showed a repeated pattern of nasal, eye, and mucous membrane symptoms with lethargy, dry skin, and headaches that are suggested to represent the sick building syndrome.
Occupational asthma due to glutaraldehyde and formaldehyde in endoscopy and x ray departments.
The exposure levels measured in the workplace suggest that sensitisation may occur at levels below the current occupational exposure standard, and glutaraldehyde can cause occupational asthma.
Guidelines for the management of work-related asthma
Work-related asthma, which includes occupational asthma and work-aggravated asthma, has become one of the most prevalent occupational lung diseases. These guidelines aim to upgrade occupational…
Development of OASYS-2: a system for the analysis of serial measurement of peak expiratory flow in workers with suspected occupational asthma.
The results suggest that the sensitivity and specificity of analysing PEF records for occupational asthma using OASYS-2 approaches that of visual analysis, but it should be absolutely reproducible.

The building symptom index shows a wide variation between different buildings; ‘‘sicker’’ buildings often have conditions of air temperature, humidity, and lighting levels that fully comply with current standards.
Respiratory failure caused by lipoid pneumonia from vaping e-cigarettes
A young female vaper presented with insidious onset cough, progressive dyspnoea on exertion, fever, night sweats and was in respiratory failure when admitted to hospital and was suggestive of lipoid pneumonia.

Occupational asthma in electronics workers caused by colophony fumes: follow-up of affected workers.

Only two of the 20 affected workers who had left their original factories were symptom free on follow-up, and most had a considerable reduction in their quality of life by continuing asthma, which was particularly provoked by exercise, respiratory infections, and nonspecific irritants.
