The aim of this study was to analyse the contribution of microbial factors to the inflammatory potency of dust (PD). Floor dust was sampled three times from 12 rooms in two schools. The potency of floor dust was measured as interleukin-8 secretion from the lung epithelial cell line A549 after exposure to dust. Measurements of endotoxin, NAGase activity and cultivable fungi in the dust were made. For endotoxin a difference was found between sampling days and for NAGase a difference was found… CONTINUE READING
