BOHRF Original Authors' Main Conclusions

The original authors' main conclusions are taken from Abstract, Results and Discussion. They are decided upon by the authors of the BOHRF occupational asthma guidelines and form part of the guidelines.

Histamine reactivity returned to normal more frequently in those who left work than in those who had moved within their original factories, suggesting that the latter had sufficient indirect exposure to maintain their symptoms and bronchial reactivity. Only 2/20 affected workers who had left factory were symptom free, and most had considerable reduction in quality of life by continuing asthma.
