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.

Study of incidence rates of asthma and rhinitis in bakers. Risk of asthma seemed to be increased at inhalable dust concentrations during dough making or bread forming, whereas the risk of rhinitis was increased at lower concentrations indicating an increased risk in all bakery job-tasks. The risks seemed to be less dependent on the cumulative exposure dust than the inhalable dust concentrations at time of disease onset. Current exposure of > 3mg/m3 was associated with an increased risk of asthma.
