Can acute formaldehyde exposure trigger sensitisation to another agent?
I carry our respiratory health surveillance for a poultry hatchery company. One of their workers was acutely exposed to ? formaldehyde in November 2016 enough to prompt an A&E attendance, and subsequently developed respiratory symptoms. Initially these were unrelated to work but at his kast surv ...

Is it possible to become sensitised (respiratory) to the grindings of a chrome-containing prosthesis; or does the chrome need to be in the form of a hexavalent salt?

Comments for the page titled: "Gene-environment interactions identified in cleaners and healthcare workers with occupational asthma."
Exposure alone does not account for susceptibility to develop occupational asthma, and gene-environment interactions are likely to be involved (as well as other factors such as smoking and any possible high-dose tolerance). Data from three large European cohorts: EGEA, SAPALDIA, and ECRHS used a ...

Comments for the paper: "Are high- and low-molecular-weight sensitizing agents associated with different clinical phenotypes of occupational asthma?", 2018, Allergy
This is the first result of a collaboration between centres offering specific inhalation testing in the diagnosis of occupational asthma, and contains data of 544 positive tests with high molecular weight agents and 635 tests with low molecular weight agents. As expected high molecular weight ag ...

1. Is it possible to have undiagnosed asthma if you have confirmed allergies and some family history and 2. Do you think that I could be allergic to bitrex?
I left school and went to work as a Pharmacology Laboratory Technician for over 2O years. I started work in 1987 when processes and procedures were not as good in this area as they are nowadays. My mother and brother are both asthmatics and I knew that I suffered from "hay fever" in the summer ...

Comments for the paper: "Sensitising effects of genetically modified enzymes used in flavour, fragrance, detergence and pharmaceutical production: cross-sectional study", 2017, Occup Environ Med
Genetically modified enzymes are now present in a wide range of industries and cause sensitisation which often shows little cross-reactivity with the native enzyme, so can be missed unless the genetically modified enzyme is used to testing. Uses include new ?avours and aroma in low-fat food, lip ...
