BACKGROUND Mold growth is believed to be one causative factor underlying the association between dampness in buildings and increased respiratory morbidity. Measurements of beta(1-->3)-glucans and fungal extracellular polysaccharides (EPS) are used as markers of mold exposure in field studies. Little is known about their levels and determinants in homes. OBJECTIVE To study levels and determinants of beta(1-->3)-glucan and EPS levels in mattress and living room floor dust in three European… CONTINUE READING
